Plan Assets = 480,000; Projected benefit obligation = 625,000; Accumulated OCI (PSC) = 100,000 Dr. As a result of the operation of the plan during 2010, the following additional data are provided by the actuary. Service cost for 2010 = 90,000; settlement rate = 9%; actual return on plan assets in 2010 = 57,000; amortization of prior service cost = 19,000; expected return on plan assets = 52,000; unexpected loss from change in projected benefit obligation, due to change in actuarial predictions = 76,000; contributions in 2010 = 99,000; benefits paid retirees in 2010 = 85,000.
