Description

This proposed statement of position (SOP) would amend chapter 4 of the AICPA Audit and Accounting Guide Audits of Employee Benefit Plans (the Guide), and SOP 92-6, Accounting and Reporting by Health and Welfare Benefit Plans. This proposed SOP would: 1. Revise the standards for measuring, reporting, and disclosing estimated future postretirement benefit payments that are to be funded partially or entirely by plan participants. 2. Specify the presentation requirements for benefit obligation information. 3. Establish standards of financial accounting and reporting for certain postemployment benefits provided by health and welfare benefit plans. 4. Clarify the measurement date for benefit obligations. 5. Require the identification of investments that are 5 percent of the net assets available for benefits. The provisions of this proposed SOP would be effective for financial statements for plan years beginning after December 15, 2000, with earlier application encouraged. Financial statements presented for prior plan years would be required to be restated to comply with the provisions of this proposed SOP.
