VACo/VML Pooled OPEB Trust
Local governments, school districts, and authorities that provide health insurance and other non-pension post-employment benefits (OPEB) to retirees are required by governmental accounting standards to report the future costs of benefits in their financial statements. To avoid reporting potentially large and increasing liabilities, and to demonstrate strong financial management, well-run political subdivisions generally fund their OPEB liabilities as they accrue.

For those that fund OPEB, the VACo/VML Pooled OPEB Trust is, hands down, Virginia’s most popular investment vehicle.
