IC 36-1-8-17.5 requires political subdivisions to report before March 1 of each year on all other post-employment benefits. The definition of OPEB includes healthcare and other nonpension benefits provided to employees. Benefits required include medical, prescription drug, dental, vision, hearing, life insurance, long-term care benefits, and long-term disability benefits (not covered under a pension plan) that are provided after employment ends.
Reporting will occur in the Department’s OPEB application in Gateway. Users with permissions to file an Annual Financial Report in Gateway have already been granted access. Additional requests for access to the report can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
