Termination Incentive Plans


Arizona state retirement system10
Arizona State Retirement System

  • A.R.S. § 38-749 “If a termination incentive program that is offered by an employer results in an actuarial unfunded liability to ASRS, the employer shall pay to ASRS the amount of the unfunded liability.”


Termination retirement incentives
Termination/Retirement Incentives

  • Unfunded liability is still created if incentive does not include ASRS compensation

  • Unfunded liability is still created if all participants are at normal retirement age

  • Unfunded liability cannot be calculated until all participants retire


Arizona state retirement system11
Arizona State Retirement System

  • Retirement unfunded liability is calculated as the difference between:

    • Present value of all future retirement benefits for active member with age, service and annual compensation equal to actual data at retirement

    • Present value of retirement benefit for retired member recognizing final benefit calculation and optional form election

  • Health supplement unfunded liability is calculated as the difference between:

    • Present value of future health supplements for active member with age, service and annual compensation equal to actual data at retirement

    • The sum of:

      • Present value of actual health supplement payable for two years

      • Present value of assumed health supplements after two years
