COVID-19 Update

Please be advised that due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the retirement system office will continue to be closed to the public until further notice. Notwithstanding the closure of the retirement system office, the monthly pension payroll will continue to be processed on schedule.  Also, the deadline for submitting the retiree census has been suspended and no benefits will be terminated for failure to submit your census.  Refund applications will also be processed as quickly as possible.

If you need to contact us, the best way to reach ERRS staff during this period is by electronic mail.  You may send an email to and we will respond as soon as practicable.  You can also find the direct email addresses for ERRS staff by clicking here.

The Essex Regional Retirement Board will continue to meet remotely until further notice.  Please check this website regularly for information on the meetings of the Board.

The retirement system staff continues to work remotely and we will continue to do our best to keep the office operating as fully as possible although some delay may be unavoidable.  On behalf of our Board and the staff at ERRS, we thank you for your continued cooperation during this unprecedented time and we hope you and your family are healthy and safe.

Thank you.
