Note 15: Retirement Benefit Plans
Pension and Postretirement Benefit Plans
For eligible employees, former employees, and retirees, we provide various defined-benefit pension benefits and postretirement medical benefits. In conjunction with our 2016 Restructuring Program, our U.S. Minimum Pension Plan and U.S. Postretirement Medical Benefit Plan assets and liabilities were remeasured during the second quarter of 2016. For more information on the 2016 Restructuring Program, please see "Note 12: Restructuring and Other Charges".
The remeasurements of the plans resulted in an increase to the plan benefit obligations for the U.S. Minimum Pension Plan and the U.S. Postretirement Medical Benefit Plan of approximately $450 million and $90 million, respectively. The increases primarily resulted from updated demographic experience and a decrease in discount rates. Curtailment charges were not significant in the quarter the plans were remeasured. For further information, see the "Retirement Benefit Plans" note in Part II, Item 8 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 26, 2015.
