Financial information for employers
The 2023 Participating Employer Financial Information (PEFI) is now available. It includes allocation schedules and information to help employers participating in the state of Washington’s multiple-employer, cost-sharing retirement plans. The data assists DRS participating employers with preparing and presenting financial information in compliance with the requirements of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB).
Where to find previous reports
The financial reporting page includes links to reports published in the last few years. You can request previous ACFRs and PEFIs from the Washington State Library. Online versions of the ACFRs include volumes 2002-2020. See the PEFIs here. For volumes that aren’t available online, contact the Washington State Library.
Rumors. They sure can be wild at times. At DRS, it’s not unusual for us to speak with customers who have heard a rumor that, as it so often turns out, is not exactly accurate.
