FASB Disclosure Information

In September 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2011-09,which requires certain financial-statement disclosures by employers who participate in multiemployer pension plans. To assist employers that contribute to the National Electrical Benefit Fund and are required to make such a disclosure in their financial statements, we are providing (below) the plan-related information needed to complete the disclosure.
The disclosure contains two sections - a narrative containing basic information about participating in multiemployer plans,and a table containing plan-specific information about the individual plans in which the employer participates. While the content of the disclosure will be ultimately determined by the employer and their auditors, FASB has provided an example of the narrative portion of the disclosure within the ASU, which may be found on FASB's website ( The NEBF-specific information needed for the table portion of the disclosure is as follows:
