F.S. 112.664
112.664 Reporting standards for defined benefit retirement plans or systems.
(1) In addition to the other reporting requirements of this part, within 60 days after receipt of the certified actuarial report submitted after the close of the plan year that ends on or after December 31, 2015, and thereafter in each year required under s. 112.63(2), each defined benefit retirement system or plan, excluding the Florida Retirement System, shall prepare and electronically report the following information to the Department of Management Services in a format prescribed by the department:
(a) Annual financial statements that comply with the requirements of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board’s Statement No. 67, titled “Financial Reporting for Pension Plans,” and Statement No. 68, titled “Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions,” using mortality tables used in either of the two most recently published actuarial valuation reports of the Florida Retirement System, including the projection scale for mortality improvement. Appropriate risk and collar adjustments must be made based on plan demographics. The tables must be used for assumptions for preretirement and postretirement mortality.
(b) Annual financial statements similar to those required under paragraph (a), but which use an assumed rate of return on investments and an assumed discount rate that are equal to 200 basis points less than the plan’s assumed rate of return.
(c) Information indicating the number of months or years for which the current market value of assets are adequate to sustain the payment of expected retirement benefits as determined in the plan’s latest valuation and under the financial statements prepared pursuant to paragraphs (a) and (b).
(d) Information indicating the recommended contributions to the plan based on the plan’s latest valuation, and the contributions necessary to fund the plan based on financial statements prepared pursuant to paragraphs (a) and (b), stated as an annual dollar value and a percentage of valuation payroll.
(2) Each defined benefit retirement system or plan, excluding the Florida Retirement System, and its plan sponsor:
(a) Shall provide the information required by this section and the funded ratio of the system or plan as determined in the most recent actuarial valuation as part of the disclosures required under s. 166.241(3) and on any website that contains budget information relating to the plan sponsor or actuarial or performance information related to the system or plan.
(b) That has a publicly available website shall provide on that website:
1. The plan’s most recent financial statement and actuarial valuation, including a link to the Division of Retirement Actuarial Summary Fact Sheet for that plan.
2. For the previous 5 years, beginning with 2013, a side-by-side comparison of the plan’s assumed rate of return compared to the actual rate of return, as well as the percentages of cash, equity, bond, and alternative investments in the plan portfolio.
3. Any charts and graphs of the data provided in subparagraphs 1. and 2., presented in a standardized, user-friendly, and easily interpretable format as prescribed by the department.
(3) The plan shall be deemed to be in noncompliance if it has not submitted the required information to the Department of Management Services within 60 days after receipt of the certified actuarial report for the plan year for which the information is required to be submitted to the department.
(a) The Department of Management Services may notify the Department of Revenue and the Department of Financial Services of the noncompliance, and the Department of Revenue and the Department of Financial Services shall withhold any funds not pledged for satisfaction of bond debt service and which are payable to the plan sponsor until the information is provided to the department. The department shall specify the date the withholding is to begin and notify the Department of Revenue, the Department of Financial Services, and the plan sponsor 30 days before the specified date.
(b) Within 21 days after receipt of the notice, the plan sponsor may petition the Department of Management Services for a hearing under ss. 120.569 and 120.57. The Department of Revenue and the Department of Financial Services may not be parties to the hearing, but may request to intervene if requested by the department or if the Department of Revenue or the Department of Financial Services determines its interests may be adversely affected by the hearing.
