On November 15, 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs) 2019-09 and 2019-10, which delay certain effective dates of four major standards.

ASU 2019-09 gives all insurance entities that issue long-duration insurance contracts (e.g., life insurance and annuities) additional time to implement ASU 2018-12 (codified in ASC 944).

ASU 2019-10 gives private companies, not-for-profit entities, and certain small public companies additional time to implement the Board’s standards on current expected credit losses (ASC 326), derivatives and hedging (ASC 815), and leases (ASC 842).
