GASB 67 and 68

GASB Statement No. 67 and GASB Statement No. 68 do not affect retirement plan members or funding requirements for the plans. Instead, the accounting rules impact financial statement reporting for the South Carolina Retirement Systems and employers participating in the retirement plans.

GASB Statement No. 67, Financial Reporting for Pension Plans, was effective for fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2013. PEBA implemented the changes required by this standard in the South Carolina Retirement Systems’ financial statements issued for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014.

GASB Statement No. 68, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions, was effective for fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2014. This statement revises and establishes new financial reporting requirements for participating employers who issue financial statements based on generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). If you are unsure about whether this will be applicable to you, please contact your auditor for additional guidance. GASB Statement No. 71, Pension Transition for Contributions Made Subsequent to the Measurement Date, was issued in November 2013, to provide clarification regarding deferred inflows and outflows under GASB 68 in the year of implementation.
