  • 5/23/2017

GASB Standards 74 and 75 require your state or local government to show net liability for your publicly sponsored retiree health care plans — and other post-employment benefits, or OPEBs — on your balance sheet. The accounting treatments for OPEBs mirror those of GASB 67 and 68 for public pensions, but there are some distinct differences you need to be aware of.
