Jabara Limited provides a defined contribution pension plan for its employees. The plan requires the company to deduct 5% of each employee’s gross pay for each payroll period as the employee contribution. The company then matches this amount by an equal contribution. Both amounts are remitted to the pension trustee within 10 days of the end of each month for the previous month’s payrolls. At November 30, 2011, Jabara reported $26,300 of combined withheld and matched contributions owing to the trustee. During December, Jabara reported gross salaries and wages of $276,100.

(c) Determine the appropriate pension account and its balance to be reported on the December 31, 2011 balance sheet.
