American Journal of Business Education, v5 n6 p771-778 2012

This instructional tool presents pension accounting using a worksheet approach where debits equal credits for both the employer and for the plan. Transactions associated with the initiation of the plan through the end of the second year of the plan are presented, including their impact on accumulated other comprehensive income and deferred taxes. This article is intended as a supplemental teaching tool that demonstrates the impact of a plan's funded status on the employer's financial statements in a way that, based upon anecdotal evidence, accounting students and practitioners have found extremely beneficial beyond traditional accounting textbooks.
