Do you know how post-retirement benefits are accounted for?


A clear understanding of the valuation and accounting fundamentals for post-retirement benefits (PRB) can shed light on how retiree benefits impact your organization's bottom line. Join our benefits experts for this half-day seminar to learn the basics of PRB accounting, and network with your peers.


Learn PRB Accounting Basics, including:


  • Valuations: understand the motivation for valuing PRBs, learn about the different inputs and outputs and how these valuations are different than for pension plans.
  • Cost of PRBs: learn how PRBs impact both the balance sheet and the bottom line.
  • Accounting standards: learn about the latest changes to current accounting standards for employee benefits and how they will impact your organization’s financial statements.
