Statement No. 68
Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions—an amendment of GASB Statement No. 27 This statement is new to most of us this year. Barry Skinner, our current FGFOA president, has shared Orange County’s pension disclosure regarding the Florida Retirement System in an effort to help us. Many of us have found that it is easier to have someone else’s disclosure to work from than to begin from a blank paper. We hope you find this information to be helpful.
