OD: Understanding the Issues Created by GASB’s New Pension Standard

Recorded on: Tuesday, November 13, 2012 1:00 PM EDT


The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) has approved a new pension standard, No. 68, “Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions,” that will affect every public institution with employees in defined benefit pension plans.
Whether a public institution is part of a state’s multiple employer plan, single employer plan, agent plan, or offers their own employer plan, statement 68 requirements will likely accelerate pension expense and liability recognition.
The practical issues created by this new requirement require analysis and preparation now.Institutions will need to understand measurement, disclosures, allocations, and deferrals.Business officers will need to prepare for conversations with auditors, actuaries, plan administrators, underwriters, rating agencies, trustees, and other stakeholders.
