Understanding Your Benefits

Benefit Explanations, Estimates, and Counseling

The Hampshire County Retirement Board encourages members to request an estimate of potential benefits and upon receipt to make an appointment for you and your spouse to meet with a staff member to discuss the specifics of the estimate, explanation of potential benefits and options, and to obtain appropriate forms and guidance in filling out required forms.

Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.   Early evening appointments can be arranged upon request.
