Have you considered using ARPA funds for your OPEB contribution?
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) allows Coronavirus Fiscal Recovery Funds (CFRF) to be used for one of four eligible use categories. As noted in the US Treasury Department’s FAQs as of January 2022, OPEB contributions are not explicitly prohibited as a use for CFRFs (Section 8.2). So as long as you can justify your OPEB contribution as meeting one of the eligible use categories, you are permitted to do so.
