GASB statement No. 75, accounting and financial reporting for postemployment benefits other than pensions

GASB 75

In June 2015, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) issued Statement No. 75, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Postemployment Benefits Other than Pensions. The statement replaces the requirements of GASB Statement No. 45 and provides guidance on the accounting and financial reporting for OPEB that is provided to the employees of state and local governmental employers. GASB’s goal is to improve accounting and financial reporting for OPEB plans in order to provide decision-useful information, support assessments of accountability and interperiod equity, and create additional transparency. This standard also expands OPEB disclosures and required supplementary information to provide users with better information about the reasonableness of the OPEB measurements and improve transparency about the changes in OPEB liabilities.
