Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statement 75 changes how public entities calculate and report long-term obligations associated with Other Postemployment Benefits (OPEB). It also changes financial reporting requirements, requiring government agencies to disclose OPEB obligations on their balance sheets. As opportunities to reduce OPEB liabilities are contemplated, many public entities are finding success utilizing a private individual marketplace to deliver health care benefits for Medicare-eligible retirees.

Join us January 30 to learn more about GASB 75, the effect it will have on reporting and how some state and local government programs have already taken steps to mitigate the impact of this new GASB statement.


Our expert panel will discuss:
• What GASB Statement 75 means for state and local governments
• The actuarial treatment of Medicare-eligible benefit programs
• How a private individual marketplace can provide retirees with benefits equal to or better than a traditional group plan while reducing OPEB liabilities
