NH Watchdog Poll- Retirement Reform
Print This Post
The New Hampshire Senate is putting on hold a plan to shift the New Hampshire Retirement System from a Defined Benefit Plan to a Defined Contribution Plan, citing the cost of such a transition, and instead would create a Study Commission to figure out how to modernize the state’s public pension system while paying off its $4.2 billion unfunded liability.
Should NH shift from a Defined Benefit Plan to a Defined Contribution Plan?
- Yes, we know that we can't afford the current system. (44%, 12 Votes)
- No, it's a bad idea and the transition is too expensive. (37%, 10 Votes)
- Maybe, but the Legislature should study it and come back next year. (19%, 5 Votes)
Total Voters: 27
