GASB Statement 68 applies to governmental employers and is applicable for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2014. There are two types of pension plans within the Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System (TCRS): agent and cost-sharing. All employers participating in TCRS, with the exception of Local Education Agencies (LEAs), do so through agent plans. LEAs participate in a cost-sharing pension plan for the benefit of employees classified as teachers. However, non-professional employees of LEAs, if members of TCRS, are covered through agent plans that are sponsored by their local government.

TCRS is providing the following information for your convenience; however, as the employer you are responsible for your financial statements, including application of the GASB 68 provisions. We recommend that you utilize the services of your internal and external auditors to understand the requirements of GASB 68 and determine the appropriate disclosures and accounting entries.

  • Suggested Notes to the Financial Statements and Required Supplemental Information (RSI) for pension data.
    • Notes for agent plans are provided for participating governmental entities, whether the plan is open or closed to new employees.
    • Notes for cost-sharing plans are provided for LEAs.
  • Suggested Accounting Entries required pursuant to GASB 68.
