New Hampshire Second Injury Fund Will Continue; HB2 Signed Into Law With No Reference To SIF Being Eliminated!

| Jul 5, 2023



In March, 2023, we advised you that the New Hampshire House of Representatives introduced Bill HB-2, which included language calling for the elimination of the Second Injury Fund in New Hampshire. Under the proposed Bill at that time, employers and insurers would have been unable to seek reimbursement for subsequent, or second, injuries that occurred after September 1, 2024.

(please refer to for that email)

We are happy to report that on June 20, 2023, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed Bill HB-2 into law, and there is no reference to any changes affecting the Second Injury Fund in New Hampshire.

Thus, the Second Injury Fund will continue to be available!

The full text of the press release may be found here.

And if you are so inclined, the full text of the bill may be found here.

Feel free to contact any member of our New Hampshire team with any questions about Second Injury Fund!
