Overview

GASB Accounting

The Governmental Accounting Standards Board has updated the reporting standards for pensions and other postemployment benefits obligations. Employers are encouraged to review the changes and determine their effect on the financial statements. CalSTRS has compiled resources to help understand the new guidelines and changes needed to implement them.

Overview

Excess Contributions

With the passage of the funding plan, enacted in AB 1469, contribution rates for the Defined Benefit Program are now greater than contribution rates for the Defined Benefit Supplement Program. As a result, when contributions on compensation that is earned for service in excess of one school year (excess service credit) are transferred to the Defined Benefit Supplement Program, the contributions that exceed the required amount are deemed to be excess contributions and by law must be returned.
