GASB Statement No. 68, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions, which becomes effective in 2015, represents a monumental change for those that prepare financial statements for and audit governmental pensions. We’ll explore issues such as actual note disclosures and RSI from early implementers, current practice issues, GASB’s Pension Implementation Guide and excerpts from the new pension chapter of the State and Local Government Audit and Accounting Guide. In addition, this course provides in-depth examples and exercises which allow participants practical application of the concepts presented.


When you have completed this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the new employer accounting requirements for public sector defined benefit and defined contribution plans.
  • Interpret the substantial changes to actuarial methods and assumptions used to determine the accounting numbers.
  • Calculate net pension liability (asset), pension expense, and deferred inflows and outflows of resources related to pensions and identify how they are displayed in the financial statements.
  • Distinguish the various roles of the key players in the context of employer management, plan administrators and external parties.
  • Apply the best practice solutions in single employer, agent multiple employer and cost-sharing multiple-employer plan audit engagements.
  • Prepare and audit the required employer pension note disclosures and RSI.
  • Determine various practice issues encountered while preparing or auditing the pension numbers and identify possible solutions.
