In exchange for promises to avoid layoffs and wage cuts, the employees agreed to receive lower pension benefits in the future. As a result, Villa amended its pension plan on January 1, 2012, and recorded negative unrecognized past service cost of $125,000. The average period to vesting for the benefits affected by this plan is 5 years. Compute unrecognized past service cost amortization for 2012. Discuss the impact of this amendment on Villa’s pension expense in 2012 and 2013.
