NOTE 4. PENSIONS AND OTHER POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS
We sponsor funded and unfunded domestic and foreign defined benefit pension and other postretirement benefit (OPEB) plans. Prior to the acquisition, Meritor provided a range of benefits to its employees and retirees, including pension benefits and postretirement healthcare benefits. As part of the acquisition, we assumed the assets and liabilities associated with these plans. Accordingly, on August 3, 2022, we recorded assets of $147 million and liabilities of $105 million on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets related to Meritor's postretirement benefit plans.
Contributions to these plans were as follows:
We anticipate making additional defined benefit pension contributions during the remainder of 2022 of $7 million for our U.S. and U.K. qualified and non-qualified pension plans. These contributions may be made from trusts or company funds either to increase pension assets or to make direct benefit payments to plan participants. We expect our 2022 annual net periodic pension cost to approximate $20 million.
The components of net periodic pension and OPEB costs under our plans were as follows:
