In recent years, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) revised a number of financial reporting standards that affect NHRS and/or its participating employers.
- GASB 67, Financial Reporting for Pension Plans, changed the accounting and financial reporting of NHRS and other public employee pension plans.
- GASB 68, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions, changed financial reporting of participating state and local governments.
- GASB 74, Financial Reporting for Postemployment Benefit Plans Other Than Pension Plans, changed the financial reporting of plans that administer other post-employment benefits (OPEB) on behalf of governments. This statement impacts NHRS in regard to the Medical Subsidy benefit paid to eligible retirees and qualified dependents, which is paid from a 401(h) medical trust funded through employer contributions.
- GASB 75, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Postemployment Benefits Other Than Pensions, changed the accounting and financial reporting for governments that provide OPEB to their employees and for governments that finance OPEB for employees of other governments.
In an effort to assist employers with the implementation of the revised GASB standards, NHRS has created this page, which includes NHRS employer communications and links to additional resources.
