On January 1, 2010, the Smith Company adopted a defined benefit pension plan. At that time, the company awarded retroactive benefits to its employees, resulting in a prior service cost that created a projected benefit obligation of $1,250,000 on that date (which it did not fund). The company decided to amortize the prior service cost by the straight-line method over the 20-year average remaining service life of its active participating employees. The company’s actuary has also provided the following additional information for 2010 and 2011: (1) service cost: 2010, $147,000; 2011, $153,000; (2) expected (and actual) return on plan assets: 2011, $33,000; and (3) projected benefit obligation: 1/1/2011, $1,522,000.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
