March 2017 Monthly Board Report

BOARD APPROVES EXIT FROM GROUP-SPONSORED HEALTH CARE, TOWARD STIPEND MODEL

At its March 28 meeting the Ohio Police & Fire Pension Fund Board of Trustees approved a motion that will end the group-sponsored health care plan and provide retired members with a fixed cap stipend amount to use toward health care. Implementation is targeted for Jan. 1, 2019.

No details of the new health care strategy were approved, but staff and consultants will be working to provide Trustees with options in the coming months. OP&F is committed to assisting retired members with finding an appropriate health care plan for both Medicare-eligible and non-Medicare eligible populations. The stipend amount is also to be determined.

Different strategies have been discussed at recent meetings, including the 2016 and 2017 Board of Trustee retreats. Both actuarial and health care consultants delivered presentations to the Board showing that without significant changes the funding for health care would be exhausted in approximately 7-9 years. It has not been determined how long a fixed cap stipend strategy would extend health care solvency or how long it would continue to be paid.

PORTFOLIO UPDATE
OP&F's investment portfolio value:

  Current value (3/28/17): $14.8 billion
  End of February value: $14.9 billion
  End of January value: $14.7 billion
