Plan Preservation Strategies


Asset trust for opeb plans

Asset Trust for OPEB Plans

  • Requires additional budget appropriation(s)

  • Could allocate the Retiree Drug Subsidy (if qualified) for partial advance funding

  • Positive impact on bond rating


Strategies for controlling the liability and expense

Strategies for Controlling the Liability and Expense

  • Capping the employer share of the obligation

  • Terminating or “sunsetting” all or a portion of the benefits (i.e. post-65 Rx coverage)

  • Tightening eligibility requirements, either for all employees or for future hires

  • Restricting retiree plan elections – direct retirees towards lower cost option


Strategies for controlling the liability and expense1

Strategies for Controlling the Liability and Expense

  • Increasing retiree premium contributions

  • Indexing fixed dollar plan features, such as deductibles and copays

  • Restrict spousal coverage and/or increase required contributions for spousal coverage
