CONCORD, NH – In an effort to inform stakeholders and other interested parties, the New Hampshire Retirement System has developed “NHRS … Now You Know,” a series of issue briefs designed to provide plain talk about some of the major topics concerning the retirement system.

Here is an excerpt:

"When NHRS fiduciaries make decisions about benefit administration, investments, or any other subject that falls within their statutory responsibility, they are required to hang up any other hats they may wear and act solely in the best interests of the collective membership, not ... anyone else who might have an interest in the outcome of the decision."
