2015 WRS GASB 68 Report for all plans (PDF)...
The Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB) has two new statements that change the accounting rules for local governments that provide pension benefits. According to GASB, the new standards are designed to improve financial reporting performed by state and local government plans, improve transparency and improve standards among accounting for pension plans.
Implementation of GASB 67 and 68 requires WRS to report in detail the current annual funding valuations for each pension plan. As it always has, WRS will continue to provide a funding valuation. In addition, WRS will provide a schedule breaking out employers’ share of the actuarial information that they will need as they adopt GASB 68 in 2015.
