Quote Of The Week: States Can’t Afford The Retiree Health Benefits They’ve Promised

“U.S. states as a group have promised hundreds of billions more in retiree health benefits than they have saved up.

The shortfall amounts to at least $645 billion, according to a new report from the nonprofit Pew Charitable Trusts based on 2015 data.

That is in addition to the $1.1 trillion that states need to pay for promised pension benefits, according to Pew.”

Heather Gillers,  “States Need $645 Billion to Pay Full Health-Care Costs,” The Wall Street Journal, September 20, 2017

 

What this means for you: State and municipal governments have made promises to their retired employees that they probably can’t afford to keep.

In addition to paying retired workers a pension, many promised health care benefits after retirement. As it turns out, many governments didn’t set aside enough money to pay for those benefits, so they are warning former employees that their health benefits could get scaled back.

It’s all part of the overall trend, where retirement costs traditionally paid for by employers are being transferred to employees. Messing with your pension is usually considered off-limits, but cutting back on retiree health benefits has been considered fair game by the court system.

How bad is the problem? According to Pew, the states have $46 billion in assets to meet $692 billion in expected health care liabilities.

What can you do about it?

If you are still working, plan on picking up some of the future bill for your retiree health benefits, and save accordingly. Lifetime post-retirement health care costs for a couple can run in the neighborhood of $250,000.

Be a smart health care consumer. Consider enrolling in a high-deductible medical plan to save on premiums and stash money in a HSA (Health Savings Account) every year. Unlike other Flexible Spending Accounts, you never “lose” the money in an HSA. It will grow tax-free until you need it.
