What Is GASB 45?

Solutions Strategy

Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB) 45, a new accounting rule, says that public employers can no longer report post-retirement health benefits on a pay-as-you-go basis and instead account for and report the annual cost of other post-retirement benefits (OPEB) for current and future retirees. While public employers do not have to actually pre-fund OPEB benefits, the rule may push many jurisdictions to consider cost-cutting measures that could affect the financial health and well-being of IAFF members.
