Dunlap Corporation has just adopted FAS No. 87, “Employers’ Accounting for Pensions.” Students are asked to perform a variety of calculations in order to determine the amounts of the pension-related items to be included in the company’s income statement and balance sheet. This case requires an understanding of present value concepts. It is intended to be used as part of an initial class on pension accounting and reporting or as the basis for a second class on pensions.
