What happened here is an imbalance between the number of retirees and employees with the ratio, and thus the retiree benefits would not be sufficiently funded. This is a good thought to keep in mind when outsourcing or at least I thought it was, so don’t outsource to the point to where you don’t have enough money coming in for retiree benefits.

VIERA — Brevard County officials will start charging Clerk of Courts Mitch Needelman's office monthly payments to offset a projected $196,425 health insurance shortfall triggered by his privatization of 127 jobs.
Last month, Needelman outsourced more than 30 percent of his benefits-eligible work force to an Orlando staffing firm, thus removing their premiums from the county's self-insured group health plan.
