Funded Status - Domestic
Presents funding status of plan. Funded Status is determined by deducting the Projected Benefit Obligation from the fair value of plan assets. This is the “headline” number cited when a company’s pension plan is considered “under funded”. A fully funded plan has sufficient assets to pay all current and future benefits. An underfunded plan does not have enough assets to pay all benefits. Unfunded benefit liability is the amount of promised pension benefits that exceed a plan’s assets.
