Disability Retirement

Members who are no longer able to perform the duties of their NHRS-covered employment due to an incapacity (either mental or physical) that is likely to be permanent may qualify for a Disability Retirement benefit.

  • Minimum of 10 years of Creditable Service is required
  • Member’s application for disability retirement is filed within one year of the date the member's contributions to NHRS cease
  • Member’s Disability Retirement application is approved by the NHRS Board of Trustees
