A special 21-member commission studying ways to shore up New Hampshire’s pension system may recommend that new employees work longer before retiring.

The New Hampshire Retirement System Study Commission also is considering letting employees make voluntary contributions to help pay for cost-of-living adjustments and health insurance benefits.

The $6 billion fund pays pensions for retired police officers, firefighters, teachers and other public workers. The plan is funded at less than 60 percent of its long-term liabilities.
