Prior to January 1, 2000, such Participant shall be credited with 108 Hours of Service for each such month; provided however, if crediting such Participant with 190 Hours of Service for such month would result in a greater benefit, then such Participant shall be credited with 190 Hours of Service.
In determining the Hours of Service for an Employee classified on the payroll as (i) a full-time employee for which specific records of hours are not kept, or (ii) as non-management employees who are paid on a basis other than hourly, an Employee shall be credited with 216 Hours of Service, for each regularly-scheduled calendar month in which such Employee would, under the rules described above, have earned at least one Hour of Service.
An individual who is treated as an employee of an Employer Company or a Related Employer solely as a result of the operation of the rules under Code § 414(n) shall be credited with Hours of Service with an Employer Company or a Related Company as required under Code § 414(n).
For an individual who became a Participant as a result of a certain acquisition or merger, credit, if any, for hours of service completed before such Participant became an Employee shall be determined in accordance with the applicable Appendix.

Section 5.3    Formulas.
(b)
RPA Formula.
(xii)
Alternative Account Formula. The Alternative Account Formula is (A + B) ÷ 120, where
A =    the Participant’s Alternative Points times 1% of his or her Final Average Compensation up to $48,000; and
B =    the Participant’s Alternative-PLUS Points times 1% of his or her Final Average Compensation in excess of $48,000.
(xiii)
Integrated Account Formula. The Integrated Account Formula is (C + D) ÷ 120, where
C =    the Participant’s Integrated Points times 1% of his or her Final Average Compensation; and
D =    the Participant’s Integrated-PLUS Points times 1% of his or her Final Average Compensation in excess of the Social Security Wage Base.
(xiv)
Accumulation of RPA Points. A Participant who has at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 2001 shall accumulate Alternative Points, Alternative-PLUS Points, Integrated Points and Integrated-PLUS Points (collectively, “RPA Points”) for each year and partial year of RPA Benefit Service without regard to whether such RPA Benefit Service was completed before January 1, 2001. The points accumulated for any year of RPA Benefit Service will be equal to the RPA Points described in Appendix F to this Plan (the “RPA Schedule”) for the Employer Company or Employer Companies for which the Participant performed the RPA Benefit Service determined in accordance with this Section 5.3(a)(iii). Credit for each year of RPA Benefit Service completed before January 1, 2001 will be determined under Appendix F-1 as in effect on January 1, 2001 without regard to what Employer Company employed the Participant at the time the RPA Benefit Service was completed. No Participant shall earn credit for more than 12 months of RPA Benefit Service in any Plan Year.

- 49 -






Notwithstanding the previous paragraph, effective as of October 1, 2014, a Grandfathered Participant shall be credited with RPA Points for each completed year and partial year of RPA Benefit Service at the level described in Appendix F-1 as in effect on January 1, 2001 without regard to what Employer Company employed the Grandfathered Participant at the time the RPA Benefit Service was completed. Additionally, for each Grandfathered Participant who earned RPA Benefit Service during the period beginning January 1, 2001 and ending September 30, 2014 and who retired or otherwise terminated service with an Employer Company and all Related Employers prior to October 1, 2014, the Plan Administrator shall redetermine his or her benefit taking into account this paragraph and make any necessary adjustment to the benefit being paid to him or her as soon as practicable after October 1, 2014. Interest shall not be paid on any benefit redetermined and adjusted under this paragraph
(c)
UPS Freight Formula. The UPS Freight Formula equals one twelfth of the product of (A) and (B), where:
A =    1.725% of the Participant’s Final Average Compensation; and
B =    the Participant’s years and partial years of UPS Freight Benefit Service (up to a maximum of 30 years).
(d)
Pre-2006 Motor Cargo Formula. The Pre-2006 Motor Cargo Benefit Formula shall equal one-twelfth of A x B, where:
A =    the Participant’s years of Pre-2006 Motor Cargo Benefit Service (not to exceed 25 years); and
B =    $240.00.
(e)
Participation in Multiple Formulas in Same Plan Year. If a Participant has RPA Benefit Service under more than one RPA Schedule or, effective January 1, 2006, a Participant has RPA Benefit Service and UPS Freight Service, in the same Plan Year, the benefit such Participant accrues that Plan Year will be determined as follows:
(i)
First, determine the RPA Benefit Service accrued under each RPA Schedule and the UPS Freight Service based on the Hours of Service with the Employer Company or Companies providing such RPA Schedule or such UPS Freight Formula;
(ii)
Second, allocate the Benefit Service determined under (i) above to the UPS Freight Formula;
(iii)
Third, allocate the excess of the Participant’s total Benefit Service determined under (i) above, over the UPS Freight Service allocated under (ii) above to

- 50 -






the RPA Schedules starting with the actual service completed under the RPA Schedule that provides the highest point value and continuing with the actual Benefit Service under the RPA Schedule with the next highest point value until the sum of the Benefit Service allocated under (ii) and the Benefit Service allocated under this (iii) equals the total actual Benefit Service or 12 months, whichever is less.
For example, assume a Participant has 2,000 total Hours of Service for Employer Companies during the Plan Year, 874 hours are under the RPA Schedule with the lowest point value (Schedule 3), 874 hours are under the highest RPA Point value (Schedule 1) and 252 hours are UPS Freight Service. The Participant’s total Benefit Service is 12 months. The Participant has 6 months of RPA Benefit Service under RPA Schedule 1 and Schedule 3, and 2 months of UPS Freight Service. The Participant will be credited with 2 months of UPS Freight Service, 6 months of RPA Benefit Service under RPA Schedule 1 and 4 months of RPA Benefit Service under Schedule 3;
If the Participant had 874 hours of UPS Freight Service, 874 hours of RPA Benefit Service under the RPA Schedule with the highest point value (Schedule 1) and 252 hours of RPA Benefit Service under the RPA Schedule with the lowest point value (Schedule 3), the Participant will be credited with 6 months of UPS Freight Service, 6 months of RPA Benefit Service under RPA Schedule 1 and 0 months of RPA Benefit Service under RPA Schedule 3.
(f)
Integrated Formula. A Participant’s benefit under the Integrated Formula shall be equal to the benefit determined under (i) or (ii) as applicable plus the Additional Monthly Retirement Benefit, if any, applicable to such Participant as contained in Appendix D of the Plan.
(i)
No Hours After 1996. For a Participant who does not have at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1997, the Integrated Formula is 1/12th of 50 percent of such Participant’s Final Average Compensation less 1/12th of 50 percent of his or her Social Security Amount where such Participant has 30 or more years of Benefit Service. If such Participant has less than 30 years of Benefit Service at his or her Annuity Starting Date, the amount calculated above shall be multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of years of Benefit Service to his or her Annuity Starting Date, and the denominator of which is 30.
In the case of a Participant with at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1992 for whom the Normal Form of benefit is a Single Life Only Annuity, the Integrated Formula benefit shall not be less than such Participant’s benefit under the Integrated Formula, if any, calculated in accordance with this Section 5.3(e) and payable in the form of a Single Life Only Annuity 120 Month Guarantee, but taking into account for this purpose

- 51 -






only that Compensation earned by the Participant through December 31, 1991 and Benefit Service earned by him through December 31, 1992.
(ii)
Hours After 1996. For a Participant who has at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1997, the Integrated Formula is 1/12th of 58.33 percent of such Participant’s Final Average Compensation (as defined under the terms of this Plan as of the date of the Participant’s retirement or other termination of employment) less 1/12th of 58.33 percent of his or her Social Security Amount where such Participant has 35 or more years of Benefit Service. If such Participant has less than 35 years of Benefit Service at his or her Annuity Starting Date, the amount calculated above shall be multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of years of Benefit Service to his or her Annuity Starting Date, and the denominator of which is 35.
(g)
Alternative Formula. A Participant’s benefit under the Alternative Formula shall be equal to the benefit determined under (i) or (ii) as applicable plus the Additional Monthly Retirement Benefit, if any, applicable to such Participant as contained in Appendix D of the Plan.
(i)
Hours After August 1979.
(D)
Hours After August 1979 But Not After 1984. For a Participant with at least one Hour of Service on or after September 1, 1979 but without at least one Hour of Service on or after January 1, 1985, the Alternative Formula is $24 per month for each year of Benefit Service completed by such Participant prior to his or her Normal Retirement Date to a maximum of $600 per month; provided such Participant has 10 or more Years of Service prior to his or her Normal Retirement Date.
(E)
Hours After 1984 But Not After 1991. For a Participant with at least one Hour of Service on or after January 1, 1985 but without at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1992, the Alternative Formula is $32 per month for each year of Benefit Service completed by such Participant prior to his or her Normal Retirement Date or (with respect to a Participant with at least one Hour of Service on or after January 1, 1987) Postponed Retirement Date to a maximum of $960 per month; provided such Participant has 10 or more Years of Service prior to his or her Normal Retirement Date or Postponed Retirement Date.
If a Participant without at least one Hour of Service on or after January 1, 1989 has less than 10 Years of Service prior to his or her Normal Retirement Date or Postponed Retirement Date, the amount shall be determined as set forth in Section (A) or (B) above, as applicable, using the number of years of Benefit Service multiplied by a fraction,

- 52 -






the numerator of which is his or her number of Years of Service to Normal Retirement Date (or, for a Participant with at least one Hour of Service on or after January 1, 1987, his or her actual retirement date) not in excess of 10, and the denominator of which is 10. If a Participant with at least one Hour of Service on or after January 1, 1989, and who first became a Participant in the Plan prior to January 1, 1989, has less than 5 Years of Service prior to his or her Normal Retirement Date, the amount shall be determined under subparagraph (B) using the number of years of Benefit Service multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is his or her number of Years of Service to his or her actual retirement date, not in excess of 5, and the denominator of which is 5. The foregoing sentence shall not apply to any individual who first became a Participant on or after January 1, 1989.
(ii)
Hours After 1991.
(D)
Hours After 1991 But Not After 1996. For a Participant with at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1992 but without at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1997, the Alternative Formula is the sum of
(1)
1/12th of two percent (2%) of such Participant’s Final Average Compensation up to $48,000, multiplied by his or her years of Benefit Service to a maximum of 30; plus
(2)
1/12th of one-half of one percent (0.5%) of such Participant’s Final Average Compensation in excess of $48,000, multiplied by his or her years of Benefit Service to a maximum of 30.
(E)
Hours After 1996. For a Participant with at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1997, the Alternative Formula is the sum of
(1)
1/12th of two percent (2%) of such Participant’s Final Average Compensation up to the Threshold Amount, multiplied by his or her years of Benefit Service to a maximum of 35; plus
(2)
1/12th of one-half of one percent (0.5%) of such Participant’s Final Average Compensation in excess of the Threshold Amount, multiplied by his or her years of Benefit Service to a maximum of 35.
For purposes of this subparagraph, the term “the Threshold Amount” means $48,000 for a Participant who was born in 1957 or later,

- 53 -






$54,000 for a Participant who was born in or after 1951 but before 1957, and $60,000 for a Participant born in 1950 or earlier.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the benefit amount calculated in accordance with this Section 5.3(f)(ii) shall not be less than the Participant’s Accrued Benefit, if any, calculated in accordance with Section 5.3(f)(i)(A) and payable in the form of a Single Life Annuity and 120-Monthly Guarantee, taking into account all Benefit Service earned by the Participant through December 31, 1992.
(h)
Portable Account Benefit.
(iii)
General. For Plan Years beginning after December 31, 2007, each Participant who has at least one Hour of Service on or after January 1, 2008 will accrue either a Portable Account Benefit or a Final Average Compensation Formula benefit, but not both. If a Participant is eligible to accrue a Portable Account Benefit, he or she shall not be eligible to accrue a Final Average Compensation Formula benefit.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Participant who is eligible for a Portable Account Benefit may continue to increase his or her Final Average Compensation.
(iv)
Eligibility for Portable Account Benefit. A Participant is eligible to accrue a Portable Account Benefit if:
(N)
he or she is hired or rehired as an Employee on or after January 1, 2008; or
(O)
he or she is transferred from a non-Employee position into an Employee position on or after January 1, 2008.
However, a Participant whose terms and conditions of employment are governed by a collective bargaining agreement shall not be eligible to accrue a Portable Account Benefit unless expressly provided by the collective bargaining agreement.
(v)
Annual Compensation Credits.
(C)
For each Plan Year during which a Participant is a Portable Account Participant and an Employee, his or her Portable Account will be credited with a percentage of his or her Compensation for such Plan Year (including the Plan Year in which the Participant terminates his or her employment) based on the number of Portable Account Points he or she has accumulated on the first day of such Plan Year and the applicable percentage from the Portable Account Points schedule set

- 54 -






forth in Appendix F-7 for the Employer Company that is his or her employer. If a Portable Account Participant has service during a Plan Year under more than one Portable Account Points schedule, the applicable percentage will be the highest percentage for the Participant’s Portable Account Points under any of the schedules under which the Participant had service during such Plan Year.
(D)
The Portable Account credit will be made annually as of the last day of the Plan Year or if a Participant terminates employment with all Employer Companies and Related Employers prior to the last day of the Plan Year, as of the date the Participant terminates employment.
(E)
If a terminated Participant who received a credit as described in (A) above is reemployed as an Employee during the same Plan Year, an additional credit will be made as of the last day of the Plan Year or date of subsequent termination, equal to the credit described in (A) above determined as of the last day of the Plan Year or subsequent termination date less the annual compensation credit previously allocated to such Participant for such Plan Year.
(vi)
Interest Credits. An Interest Credit will be allocated to each Portable Account Participant’s Portable Account as of the last day of each Plan Year, calculated by multiplying his or her Account Balance as of the first day of that Plan Year by the Interest Credit Percentage for that Plan Year. A Portable Account will be credited with an Interest Credit for each Plan Year until the Portable Account Participant’s benefit commencement date without regard to whether the Portable Account Participant is an Employee. If the Portable Account Participant’s benefit commencement date is other than the last day of a Plan Year, the Interest Credit for the Plan Year that includes the benefit commencement date will be prorated based on the ratio of whole months expired in the year before the benefit commencement date, to 12. If a Participant described in the preceding sentence is reemployed as an Employee during the same Plan Year, no additional Interest Credit will be made for that Plan Year.
(vii)
Accrued Benefit Attributable to Portable Account. The portion of the Portable Account Participant’s Accrued Benefit that is attributable to his or her Portable Account as of any date is the balance credited to his or her Portable Account. The balance credited to the Portable Account is payable at the times described in Section 4.7 in the form described in Section 5.4(h).
Section 5.4    Benefit Payment.
(a)
Annuities. Except as provided in Section 5.4(e) for cash out of benefits and unless the Participant elects an Optional Form of Benefit pursuant to Section 5.4(b), a benefit described in Section 5.2 will be paid:

(b)
Election out of Normal Form of Benefit or Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity. In lieu of the Normal Form or the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity, a Participant who is eligible for an annuity form of benefit, may elect, at any time within the 90-day period ending on the Annuity Starting Date, to waive the Normal Form or the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity in favor of one of the Actuarial Equivalent Optional Forms of Benefit described below.
(vi)
Form of Election. An election by a Participant under this Section must be in writing in a form approved by the Committee, and, if the Participant has a Spouse, such election shall not be effective unless:
(F)
the Spouse of the Participant consents to the election, and such consent (1) is in writing, (2) acknowledges the Participant’s selection of an alternate form of benefit and/or Beneficiary, which may not thereafter be changed without spousal consent unless the Spouse’s prior consent expressly permits the Participant to change the Beneficiary without further consent by the Spouse, (3) acknowledges the effect of such election, and (4) is witnessed by a notary public; or
(G)
it is established to the satisfaction of a representative of the Plan that the Spouse’s consent cannot be obtained because (1) the Participant has no Spouse, (2) the Participant’s Spouse cannot be located, or (3) one of the conditions prescribed in Treasury regulations is satisfied.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, no spousal consent shall be required if a participant elects a Joint and Survivor Annuity and his or her Spouse is the designated beneficiary.
(vii)
Spouse Affected by Election. A Participant’s election to waive the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity shall be effective only with respect to the Spouse who consented to the election or who was deemed to consent pursuant to Section 5.4(b)(i)(B).
(viii)
Revocation of Election. A Participant may revoke an election made under this Section 5.4(b) at any time prior to the Annuity Starting Date. A Spouse’s consent to the waiver of the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity and to the specific Beneficiary and optional form designations made by the Participant is irrevocable unless the Participant revokes his or her waiver election.

- 56 -






(c)
Notice Requirements. Within 90 days prior to the Participant’s Annuity Starting Date, the Committee shall provide the Participant with a written explanation of:

Under the Joint and Survivor Annuity, a reduced monthly benefit shall be paid to the Participant for his or her lifetime, and his or her Beneficiary, if such Beneficiary survives at the Participant’s death, shall be entitled to receive thereafter a lifetime survivorship benefit in a monthly amount equal to 50%, 75% or 100%, as selected by the Participant, of the monthly amount which had been payable to the Participant. The last payment of the Joint and Survivor Annuity shall be made as of the first day of the month in which the death of the last to die of the Participant and his or her Beneficiary has occurred.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Participant may not select a Joint and Survivor Benefit with a Beneficiary who would not be eligible to receive the percentage survivor benefit selected under the requirements of proposed Treasury Regulation § 1.401(a)(9)-2.
(vi)
Single Life Annuity with 120-Month Guarantee. Under the Single Life Annuity with 120-Month Guarantee, a reduced monthly benefit shall be paid to the Participant for his or her lifetime, with a guarantee of 120 monthly payments. If the Participant dies after the Annuity Starting Date but before

(vii)
Single Life Only Annuity. Under the Single Life Only Annuity, a monthly benefit shall be paid to the Participant for his or her lifetime. The last payment of the Single Life Only Annuity shall be made as of the first day of the month in which the death of the Participant occurs.

In addition to the Optional Forms of Benefit available under Sections 5.4(d)(i) through (iv), a Grandfathered Overnite Participant whose Annuity Starting Date is prior to his or her Normal Retirement Date may elect, as an Optional Form of Benefit, a “social security leveling income option”, which shall be a benefit for the Participant’s lifetime providing for the adjustment of the Participant’s Normal Retirement Benefit to produce, so far as practicable, a level combined pension from this Plan and the Participant’s Social Security benefit (both before and after such Social Security benefit is payable).
(ix)
Grandfathered Motor Cargo Participant Optional Forms. In addition to the Optional Forms of Benefit available under Section 5.4(d)(i) through (iv), a Grandfathered Motor Cargo Participant may elect, as an Optional Form of Benefit, a Five Year Certain and Life Annuity for his or her entire Accrued Benefit.
(e)
Cash-Out of Benefits. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Plan, effective March 1, 2005 to November 30, 2012, if following a Participant’s termination of employment with the Employer Company and all Related Employers the Present Value of his or her entire vested Accrued Benefit does not exceed $1,000, the Committee shall, in lieu of such benefit, pay to the Participant, without his or her consent, such Present Value in a lump sum.
Effective December 1, 2012, if following a Participant’s termination of employment with the Employer Company and all Related Employers and his or her receipt of the notice described in Code § 402(f), the Present Value of his or her entire vested Accrued Benefit does not exceed $5,000, the Committee shall, in lieu of such benefit, pay, without his or her consent, such Present Value in a lump sum. For a Portable Account Participant who previously received distribution of his or her entire Portable Account in a single lump sum, the preceding sentence shall apply to his or her remaining vested benefit under the Plan, if any. If a Participant to which this paragraph applies does not elect to have such lump sum payment paid directly to an eligible retirement plan in a direct rollover or to receive such lump sum payment directly, the Committee shall pay the lump sum payment in a direct rollover to an individual retirement account designated by the Committee.

- 58 -






(f)
Repayment of Cash-Out. After a distribution described in Section 5.4(e), the Participant’s service with respect to which the distribution was made shall be disregarded for purposes of the Plan unless, following reemployment, the Participant repays the amount of the distribution to the Trustee together with interest at the rate of 120 percent of the Federal mid-term rate, as in effect under Code § 1274 for the first month of the Plan Year in which the restoration occurs or otherwise in accordance with Code § 411(a)(7). Such repayment must be made on or before the earlier of (i) the date that is five years after the Participant’s resumption of employment or (ii) the last day of a period of six consecutive Breaks in Service ending after the cash-out distribution. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Participant may not repay any distribution of his or her Portable Account.
(g)
Special Transitional Rules for Certain Participants in Pay Status. In the case of a Participant with at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1992 and whose Annuity Starting Date is in 1992, the monthly amount of the Participant’s Normal or Early Retirement Benefit, or Deferred Vested Benefit shall, if calculated in accordance with the terms of this Plan prior to the adoption of Amendment No. 15 to the UPS Retirement Plan as amended and restated as of January 1, 1976, be adjusted, retroactive to the Participant’s Annuity Starting Date, to reflect his or her greater benefit, if any, determined in accordance with the terms of this Plan as amended by such Amendment No. 15. Such increase shall be calculated based on the same payment form as selected by the Participant.
(h)
Portable Account Benefit.
(v)
Form of Payment. If the Portable Account is paid before the Portable Account Participant’s Earliest Commencement Age, it will be paid in (1) a single lump sum or (2) an immediate annuity in the Normal Form if the Portable Account Participant does not have a Spouse or in the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity or the Joint and 75% Survivor Annuity with the Spouse as the Beneficiary if the Portable Account Participant has a Spouse. If the Portable Account is paid on or after the Portable Account Participant’s Earliest Commencement Age, the Portable Account may be paid in any Optional Form of Benefit described in Section 5.4(d) in addition to the forms described in the preceding sentence.
(vi)
Conversion of Portable Account to Annuity Benefit. The Portable Account balance will be adjusted for Interest Credits to the Annuity Starting Date. The adjusted Portable Account balance will be converted to an immediate Single Life Annuity commencing at the Annuity Starting Date using the Applicable Interest Rate and the Applicable Mortality Table for the Plan Year that includes the Annuity Starting Date. If the benefit will be paid in a form of annuity other than the Single Life Annuity, the reduced Single Life Annuity will be converted to the applicable Optional Form of Benefit using the Actuarial Equivalent factors in Section 1.1(b)(i).

- 59 -

(f)
with reference to a Disability occurring on or after January 1, 1978, the amount determined by multiplying $9.60 by the number of years of Benefit Service to a maximum of 25 (30, in case of Disability occurring on or after January 1, 1992), completed by the Participant prior to his or her Disability.
The benefit payable under this Section 5.5 shall be paid to the disabled Participant so long as he remains Disabled, but in no event beyond the date as of which the Participant commences an Early Retirement Benefit or he attains his or her Normal Retirement Date.
Section 5.6    Preretirement Survivor Annuity.
(a)
Final Average Compensation Formula or Pre-2006 Motor Cargo Formula. If a vested Participant dies prior to his or her Annuity Starting Date, his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner will be entitled to receive a Preretirement Survivor Annuity for that portion of his or her benefit attributable to the Final Average Compensation Formula and Pre-2006 Motor Cargo Formula commencing:

Effective January 1, 2012, , if a Participant (other than a UPS Freight Participant) with at least one Hour of Service as an Employee on or after January 1, 1992 dies on or after January 1, 2012 before attaining his or her Early Retirement Date while actively employed by an Employer Company (or while an LTD Participant or while eligible for a Disability Retirement Benefit) after having earned at least 10 Years of Service, the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity or the Joint and 50% Survivor Annuity used as the basis for calculating the amount of the Preretirement Survivor Annuity shall be determined by using the early commencement reduction factors that would have been applicable to such Participant with respect to Early Retirement Benefits had he or she survived to his or her Early Retirement Date.

Similar lump sum payment provisions shall apply to alternate payees.
(h)
Preretirement Survivor Annuity Attributable to Portable Account. If a vested Portable Account Participant dies (whether or not employed) or a nonvested Portable Account Participant dies while employed with an Employer Company or a Related Employer, the surviving Spouse or Domestic Partner of such Participant will be entitled to receive the Portable Account balance as a preretirement survivor annuity. The surviving Spouse or Domestic Partner may elect to have the Portable Account paid in a (1) single lump sum or (2) an immediate or deferred Single Life Annuity based on the life of the surviving Spouse or Domestic Partner. Payment may be made as of the first day of the month after the Portable Account Participant dies or as of the first day of any subsequent month on or before the Participant’s Normal Retirement Date. If the Spouse or Domestic Partner selects an annuity benefit, the Portable Account will be converted to a Single Life Annuity for the life of the Spouse or Domestic Partner using the same methodology described in Section 5.4(h). If the deceased Participant did not have a Spouse or Domestic Partner at his or her death, the balance credited to the Portable Account will be paid in a single lump sum to the Participant’s Beneficiary as soon as practicable after the death of the deceased Participant and the Beneficiary has completed an application for such benefit.
(i)
Death After Payment of Portable Account. If the Portable Account Participant dies after payment of his or her Portable Account has been made or has begun, the surviving Spouse or Domestic Partner will not be entitled to a preretirement survivor annuity from the Portable Account.
Section 5.7    Benefit Payments Under Other Plans and Programs. The benefits otherwise provided in Sections 5.2 through 5.6 of this Plan shall be reduced by the amount of any benefits payable to or on behalf of a Participant under any other non-government pension or retirement plan or program to which contributions have been made by an Employer Company on behalf of such person or under which service is counted in calculating benefits under this Plan, other than service taken into account in calculating benefits under the Portable Account Formula, and contributions under any cash or deferred plan described in Code § 401(k), to the extent that such benefits payable under such other plan or program are based on a period of time included in the calculation of Benefit Service for

- 63 -






purposes of this Plan and are not attributable to contributions made to such other plan or program by the Participant.
If a reduction in benefits is also called for in another plan or plans sponsored and maintained by the Employer Company by reason of the benefits payable to a Participant under this Plan, the reduction in benefits shall be made only in the benefits payable under the plan in which the Participant last participated, and if he or she participated in more than one such other plan, then the reduction shall be made in the reverse order of participation with no reduction in the benefits payable under the plan in which the Participant first participated.
If the Participant receives one form of benefit under this Plan and another form of benefit under any such other plan, any reduction hereunder shall be based on actuarially equivalent forms of benefit.
Section 5.8    Preservation of Benefits and Maximum Pensions. Anything to the contrary notwithstanding, a retirement benefit computed under this Article V shall be subject to the following:
(a)
Minimum Benefit for Participation as of the Effective Date. If a Participant was included under the provisions of the Plan prior to January 1, 1976, and a benefit becomes payable under this Plan resulting from termination of employment for any reason on or after the January 1, 1976, such benefit shall not be less than the actuarial equivalent of the benefit that would have been payable had the provisions of the Plan in effect immediately prior to January 1, 1976 remained in effect until the Participant’s termination of employment, considering the years of continuous employment accumulated at termination of employment and the benefits in effect immediately prior to January 1, 1976.
(b)
Maximum Benefits. For limitations years beginning on or after July 1, 2007, refer to Appendix N, Maximum Benefits for Participants Other than Independent Pilots Association. For limitation years ending after December 31, 2002 and before July 1, 2007, this paragraph (b) shall apply.
(vii)
General Limitation. For limitation years ending after December 31, 2002, the maximum annual benefit payable under this Plan shall not exceed the lesser of: (A) $160,000 as adjusted, effective January 1 of each year, under Code § 415(d) in such manner as the Secretary shall prescribe (the “dollar limitation”) or (B) 100% of the Participant’s average compensation (as defined in Treasury Regulation § 1.415-2(d)) and reduced, if necessary, to reflect the applicable annual compensation limitation under Code § 401(a)(17), paid for the three consecutive calendar years during which he or she was an active Participant in the Plan, and in which he or she received the greatest aggregate compensation (as defined above)from the Employer Company, subject to the following:
(A)
If the benefit is payable in any form other than a straight life annuity, a Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity, or a joint and survivor annuity

- 64 -






with the Spouse as the Beneficiary, then the limitations of this subsection shall be applied to the straight life annuity which is the actuarial equivalent of such benefit. The actuarially equivalent straight life annuity is equal to the greater of the annuity benefit computed using the interest rate and mortality table (or other tabular factor) specified in the Plan for adjusting benefits in the same form, and the annuity benefit computed using a 5 percent interest rate assumption and the Applicable Mortality Table. In determining the actuarially equivalent straight life annuity for a lump sum benefit, the Applicable Interest Rate will be substituted for 5 percent. No actuarial adjustment is required for the value of a qualified joint and survivor annuity, benefits that are not directly related to retirement benefits and the value of post-retirement cost-of-living increases made in accordance with Code § 415(d) and the regulations thereunder.
(B)
(1)    If the retirement benefit of the Participant commences before age 62, such dollar limitation shall be adjusted as described below so that it is the actuarial equivalent of an annual benefit of the dollar limitation beginning at age 62, reduced for each month by which benefits commence before the month in which the Participant attains age 62. The retirement benefit beginning prior to age 62 shall be determined as the lesser of the actuarial equivalent retirement benefit computed using the interest rate and mortality table (or other tabular factor) equivalence for early retirement benefits specified in the Plan, and the equivalent retirement benefit computed using a 5 percent interest rate and the Applicable Mortality Table. Any decrease in the adjusted defined benefit dollar limitation determined in accordance with this provision (B)(1) shall not reflect any mortality decrement to the extent that benefits will not be forfeited upon the death of the Participant. If any benefits are forfeited upon death, the full mortality decrement is taken into account.
(2)    If the retirement benefit of a Participant commences after age 65, the defined benefit dollar limitation shall be adjusted so that it is the actuarial equivalent of a retirement benefit of such dollar limitation beginning at age 65. The actuarial equivalent retirement benefit beginning after age 65 shall be determined as the lesser of the actuarial equivalent retirement benefit computed using the interest rate and mortality table (or other tabular factor) specified in the Plan for purposes of determining actuarial equivalence for delayed retirement benefits, and the equivalent retirement benefit computed using a 5 percent interest rate assumption and the Applicable Mortality Table.

- 65 -






(C)
Subject to limitations imposed elsewhere in this Plan, an annual benefit of $10,000 or less may be paid regardless of the limitations set forth in this subsection (b)(i) if the benefit paid the Participant from all defined benefit plans of the Employer Company does not exceed $10,000 for the Plan Year or any prior Plan Year, and the Employer Company has not at any time maintained a defined contribution plan in which the Participant participated.
(D)
If a Participant has less than 10 Years of service with the Employer Company at the time the Participant begins to receive retirement benefits under the Plan, the average compensation limitation, as well as the $10,000 benefit exception described in Section 5.8(b)(i)(C) above, shall be reduced by multiplying such limitation by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of Years of Service with the Employer Company as of and including the current limitation year, and the denominator of which is 10. In the case of the dollar limitation where the Participant has less than 10 years of participation in the Plan, such limitation shall be reduced by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of years of participation in the Plan as of and including the current limitation year, and the denominator of which is 10.
(viii)
Limitation Adjustment. The rate of a Participant’s benefit accrual will be automatically frozen or reduced to a level necessary to prevent the limitations of this subsection (b) from being exceeded; provided, that if the limitations of this subsection (b) will be exceeded only as a result of considering another defined benefit plan sponsored by the Employer Company and this Plan as one plan, the Participant’s benefit accrual under this Plan will not be frozen or reduced to a level necessary to prevent the limitations of this subsection (b) from being exceeded in the event that such other defined benefit plan provides for the freezing or reduction of benefit accruals.
(ix)
Single Plan Rule. For purposes of this subsection (b), all defined benefit plans of the Employer Company (whether or not terminated) shall be considered as one defined benefit plan.
(x)
Automatic Adjustment. The limitations imposed by this subsection (b) shall be adjusted automatically when permitted or required by law. With respect to increases in these limitations which are permitted by law to reflect the impact of inflation, in the event that a Participant’s Normal Retirement Benefit or Early Retirement Benefit as of his or her Annuity Starting Date, must be reduced by reason of the foregoing limitations in effect at such time, the following rules shall apply:
(A)
A Participant’s Normal Retirement Benefit or Early Retirement Benefit, taking into account the Compensation limitation under Code

- 66 -






§ 401(a)(17) (the “Compensation limitation”), and applying the applicable limitation or limitations of Section 5.8(b)(i) or Section 5.8(b)(i)(B)(1) (as applicable, the “415 limitations”) shall, following the Annuity Starting Date, be adjusted upward as the result of any subsequent increase in the 415 limitations, provided however, that in no event shall such benefit exceed the Participant’s Normal Retirement Benefit or Early Retirement Benefit, as the case may be, including the Compensation limitation.
(B)
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall a Participant’s Normal Retirement Benefit or Early Retirement Benefit, for any particular year, exceed the 415 limitation for such year (based on the Participant’s age on his or her Annuity Starting Date), and no increase as described in subparagraph (A) above shall be retroactive for any preceding year.
(C)
A Participant’s Normal Retirement Benefit or Early Retirement Benefit shall not be adjusted upward as the result of any change to the Compensation limitation following the Annuity Starting Date.
(xi)
Limitation Year. For purposes of this subsection (b), the limitation year is the calendar year.
(xii)
Employer Company. Solely for purposes of this Section 5.8(b), “Employer Company” means the Employer Company and each entity who would be determined to be a member of the Employer Company’s controlled group under Code § 414(b) or (c) if the standard of “more than fifty percent” was substituted for the standard of “at least eighty percent.
(xiii)
Transitional Rules. The limitation under Section 5.8(b)(i) for an Employee who was a Participant in this Plan prior to January 1, 1983, shall be the greater of (1) the limitation contained in such Section or (2) the Participant’s accrued benefit, expressed as an annual benefit, as of December 31, 1982. For purposes of this paragraph (A), neither changes in the terms and conditions of this Plan nor cost of living adjustments occurring after July 1, 1982, shall be taken into account.
(c)
Incorporation by Reference. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5.8, the limitations on the maximum benefits payable from this Plan shall be in accordance with Code § 415 and the regulations thereunder, which are incorporated into this Plan by reference.
Section 5.9    Limitations Regarding Time of Payment of Benefits. All payments authorized under this Plan shall commence no later than the 60th day after the close of the Plan Year in which the Participant terminates his or her service with the Employer Company and all Related Employers, provided proper application under Section 4.1 is filed, or as required by the Required Minimum

- 67 -






Distribution Addendum to Appendix M, which applies to all distributions under this Plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Participant’s benefit will commence April 1 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which the Participant attains age 70 1/2 (“Required Benefit Commencement Date”), even if the Participant has not had a termination of employment.
Section 5.10    Designation of Beneficiary.
(a)
Beneficiary Designation for Optional Form of Benefit for other than the Portable Account. Each Participant who selects an Optional Form of Benefit that provides for payment to a Beneficiary may designate Beneficiaries (including a primary Beneficiary and one or more contingent Beneficiaries in the event of the death of the primary Beneficiary) to receive such benefits, other than benefits under the Portable Account, as may be payable under the Optional Form of Benefit selected by the Participant. The designation of any Beneficiary may be changed in accordance with Section 5.4(b). The consent of any previously designated Beneficiary to such change shall not be required to effect the change. No designation of a Beneficiary shall be effective to the extent that honoring such designation would conflict with the rights of the Participant’s Spouse under Section 5.4, and no such designation shall be effective to the extent that, in conjunction with such spousal rights, it would require duplication of benefit payments.
In the event that a Participant who has selected the Single Life Annuity with 120-Month Guarantee, or a Motor Cargo Participant (as defined in Appendix K) who has selected a Five Year Certain and Life Annuity, fails to designate a Beneficiary or if a designated Beneficiary does not survive the Participant or is not specified elsewhere in this Plan, payment will be made to the Spouse or Domestic Partner of the deceased Participant, if any, but if none survives the Participant, to his or her estate. If the designated Beneficiary who has begun to receive payments under the Single Life Annuity with 120-Month Guarantee or the Five Years Certain Annuity dies before all payments are made, the balance due shall be paid in a lump sum or in installments, as the Committee shall direct, to the estate of the deceased Beneficiary.
(b)
Beneficiary Designation for the Portable Account. The designated Beneficiary for the Portable Account, if any, shall be the Spouse or Domestic Partner of the deceased Participant. If no Spouse or Domestic Partner survives the Participant, payment will be made to the Participant’s estate.
Section 5.11    Final Payment to Participant or Beneficiary. Any final payment or distribution to any Participant or a legal representative or Beneficiary of a Participant, or any one claiming under them, in accordance with this Plan, shall be in full satisfaction of all claims against the Trust Fund, the Trustee, the Committee, any Employer Company, and all representatives, officers, employees and agents thereof. The person receiving the payment or distribution may be required to execute a receipt and release of all claims under the Plan upon a final payment or distribution or a receipt and release to the extent of any partial payment or distribution. The form and content of such receipt or release shall be determined by the Committee.

- 68 -






Section 5.12    Suspension of Benefits.
(a)
Subject to paragraph (b) below, if a Participant, other than a Grandfathered Motor Cargo Participant, entitled to receive benefits (which shall be deemed to include the actual receipt of such benefits) should (i) return to employment prior to January 1, 2009 or (ii) remain in employment after attaining Normal Retirement Age:
(i)
The payment of benefits to said Participant shall be suspended for the period in which the Participant remains employed but not beyond the Required Beginning Date set forth in the Required Minimum Distribution Addendum to Appendix M of this Plan. Benefit payments will be resumed no later than the first day of the third calendar month after the month in which the Participant ceases to be employed, provided the Participant has informed the Plan Administrator that he has ceased such employment or his or her Required Benefit Commencement Date, if earlier.
(ii)
For purposes of this Section 5.12(a), a period of employment as to which benefits shall be suspended means any calendar month or a four or five week period ending in a calendar month, if the Participant completes at least forty hours of service (as defined in 29 CFR §2530.200b-2(a)(1) and (2)) with the Employer Company or a Related Employer in such month or payroll period.
(iii)
Any Participant coming under this provision will be notified by first class mail or personal delivery within the first calendar month or payroll period in which the Plan withholds the payment of Retirement Benefits.
(iv)
Any Participant may request a determination of whether or contest a determination that specific contemplated employment will be considered employment for purposes of this Section 5.12(a). Request for status determinations may be submitted in accordance with the claim procedures set forth in Section 9.4.
(v)
When a Participant whose benefits were suspended in accordance with Section 5.12(a)(i) is entitled to recommence benefits upon his or her subsequent termination of employment with all Related Employers or his or her Required Benefit Commencement Date, his or her benefits shall be recalculated on the basis of Compensation earned and years of Benefit Service credited during such period of reemployment or continued employment, and no actuarial or other adjustment shall be made to such Participant’s benefit so as to reflect payments so suspended. In addition, such resumed payment shall be offset by (I) any benefit paid with respect to a month in which the Participant was in service described in Section 5.12(a)(ii) where the amount so paid has not been returned or repaid to the Plan by such Participant and (II) the Actuarial Equivalent of any payments made to the Participant before his or her Normal Retirement Date. A Participant whose benefits have been suspended during a period of reemployment or

- 69 -






continued employment shall be entitled to elect the form of payment for his or her entire benefit, including amounts accrued both before and during reemployment, in accordance with Section 5.4.
(vi)
When a Participant who returns to employment with an Employer Company or a Related Employer on or after January 1, 2009 his or her benefit in pay status before such return to employment shall continue and upon his or her subsequent termination of employment or Required Benefit Commencement Date, an additional Retirement Benefit shall be paid if he or she earns additional Benefit Service. The Participant’s Retirement Benefit shall be recalculated on the basis of his or her total years of Benefit Service, including those earned following his or her return to employment. The excess, if any, of the recalculated Retirement Benefit over the initial Retirement Benefit shall be paid in the form elected by the Participant in accordance with Section 5.4 (which is not required to be the same form as his or her initial Retirement Benefit) unless the Participant was at least Normal Retirement Age at the commencement of his or her initial Retirement Benefit, in which case, his or her additional Retirement Benefit, if any, shall be paid in the same form as his or her initial Retirement Benefit.
(b)
Portable Account Benefit. If a Participant returns to employment at any time after receiving payment of his or her Portable Account Benefit in a form other than a lump sum, his or her benefits attributable to the Portable Account Formula shall not be suspended.
Section 5.13    Withholding of Income Tax.
(a)
Notification of Withholding of Federal Income Tax. All Participants, Spouses, Domestic Partners and Beneficiaries entitled to receive benefits under the Plan (each, a “payee”) shall be notified of the Plan’s obligation to withhold federal income tax from any benefits payable pursuant to the terms of the Plan. Such notice shall be given in such manner and at such time as required by applicable law.
(b)
Effective Date of Election. Any transfer direction, election or revocation of any election by a payee shall become effective immediately upon receipt by the Committee of the transfer direction, election or revocation. Thereafter, the Committee shall, unless otherwise provided by applicable law, regulation or other guidance by the Secretary of the Treasury or his or her delegate, instruct the Trustee to withhold federal income tax in accordance or consistent with the instructions filed by the payee.
(c)
Failure to Make Election.
(i)
In the case of an eligible rollover distribution, if the payee fails to provide the Committee with a transfer direction, the Committee shall instruct the Trustee to withhold an amount equal to 20% of the amount of the distribution

- 70 -






(or such other amount as may be from time to time prescribed by the Code, or the Secretary of the Treasurer or his or her delegate).
(ii)
In the case of a distribution which is not an eligible rollover distribution, if the payee fails to provide the Committee with a withholding certificate, the Committee shall instruct the Trustee to withhold, in the case of a periodic distribution, the amount which would be required to be withheld from such payment if such payment were a payment of wages by an employer to an employee for the appropriate payroll period, determined as if the payee were a married person claiming three withholding allowances. In the case of a nonperiodic distribution, 10% of the amount of the distribution shall be withheld.
(d)
Coordination with Internal Revenue Code and Regulations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Committee shall discharge its withholding and notice obligations in accordance with the Code and regulations and such other guidance with respect thereto as may be promulgated from time to time by the Secretary of the Treasury or his or her delegate.
Section 5.14    Direct Rollover.
(a)
With respect to any distribution described in this Article V which constitutes an eligible rollover distribution within the meaning of Code § 401(a)(31)(C), the distributee thereof shall, in accordance with procedures established by the Committee, be afforded the opportunity to direct that such distribution be transferred directly to the trustee of an eligible retirement plan, or to an individual retirement plan described in Code§ 408A (a “Roth IRA”) (a “direct rollover”). For purposes of the foregoing sentence, an “eligible retirement plan” is (1) a qualified trust within the meaning of Code § 402 which is a defined contribution plan the terms of which permit the acceptance of rollover distributions, (2) an individual retirement account or annuity within the meaning of Code § 408 (other than an endowment contract), (3) an annuity plan within the meaning of Code 403(a), which is specified by the distributee in such form and at such time as the Committee may prescribe, or (4) an annuity contract described in Code § 403(b) and (5) an eligible plan under Code § 457(b) which is maintained by a state, political subdivision of a state, or any agency instrumentality of a state or political subdivision of a state and which agrees to separately account for amounts transferred into such plan from this Plan. The definition of “eligible retirement plan” shall also apply in the case of a distribution to a surviving Spouse, or to a Spouse or former Spouse who is the alternate payee under a qualified domestic relation order, as defined in Code § 414(p).
Notwithstanding any contrary provision in the Plan, a Beneficiary who is not the Participant’s or the former Participant’s surviving Spouse and who is not the Participant’s or former Participant’s Spouse or former Spouse who is an alternate payee under a qualified domestic relations order, shall in accordance with procedures established by the Committee, be afforded the opportunity to have any portion of a

- 71 -






distribution paid in a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer to an individual retirement account described in Code § 408(a), an individual retirement annuity described in Code § 408(b), or a Roth IRA, each of which is established for the purpose of receiving such distribution on behalf of such Beneficiary and is treated as an inherited individual retirement account or individual retirement annuity (within the meaning of Code § 408(d)(3)(C)) for purposes of Code § 402(c)(11) (each, an “Inherited IRA”). The minimum distribution rules of Code § 401(a)(9) as described in the Required Minimum Distribution Addendum to Appendix M shall apply for purposes of determining the amount of the distribution that may be transferred to the Inherited IRA.
(b)
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the distributee elects to have his or her eligible rollover distribution paid in part to him or her, and paid in part as a direct rollover:
(iii)
the direct rollover must be in an amount of $500 or more; and
(iv)
a direct rollover to two or more eligible retirement plans shall not be permitted.
(c)
The Committee shall, within a reasonable period of time prior to making an eligible rollover distribution from this Plan, provide an explanation in a manner prescribed by law to the distributee of the direct rollover option described above, as well as the provisions under which such distribution will not be subject to tax if transferred to an eligible retirement plan within 60 days after the date on which the distributee received the distribution.
Section 5.15    Recovery of Overpayments. No person is entitled to any benefit under this Plan except and to the extent expressly provided under this Plan. The fact that payments have been made from this Plan in connection with any claim for benefits under this Plan does not (a) establish the validity of the claim, (b) provide any right to have such benefits continue for any period of time, or (c) prevent the Plan from recovering the benefits paid to the extent that the Committee determines that there was no right to payment of the benefits under this Plan or that there was a mistake in the calculation of benefits under this Plan. Thus, if a benefit is paid under this Plan and it is thereafter determined by the Committee that such benefit should not have been paid, or that such benefit was overpaid (whether or not attributable to an error by the Participant, the Committee or any other person), then the Committee may take such action as it deems necessary or appropriate to remedy such situation, including, without limitation, deducting the amount of any overpayment theretofore made to or on behalf of the Participant from any succeeding payments to or on behalf of the Participant or instituting legal action to recover such overpayments. The period over which the Committee may recover any benefit overpayment shall not be limited by the period during which the error occurred.
Section 5.16    Funding Based Limitations on Benefits and Benefit Accrual for Plan Years beginning on or after January 1, 2008.

- 72 -






For Plan Years beginning on or after January 1, 2008, refer to Appendix R, Funding Based Limitations on Benefits and Benefit Accrual.

- 73 -







ARTICLE VI    
VESTING
Section 6.1    Vesting. Each Participant shall have a 100% vested interest in his or her Accrued Benefit:
(h)
If he does not have a Portable Account, after completing at least five Years of Service; and
(i)
If he does have a Portable Account, after completing at least three Years of Service.
A Participant shall have no vested interest prior to the completion of the number of Years of Service specified above, except as provided in the applicable Appendix or in Article XI, Top Heavy Provisions. In addition, a Participant’s Accrued Benefit shall be fully vested upon his or her attainment of his or her Normal Retirement Age while employed by an Employer Company or a Related Employer.
Any Participant in the Plan on the date of adoption of any amendment to the vesting schedule may, within an election period which begins on the date of adoption of such amendment to the vesting schedule and ends on the sixtieth day after the latest of: (i) the date the amendment is adopted; (ii) the date the amendment becomes effective; or (iii) the date the Participant is given written notice of the amendment by the Committee, elect to have his or her vested percentage determined under his or her vesting schedule as in effect immediately prior to the effective date of amendment, provided he has completed three Years of Service prior to the end of the election period. Any election made will be irrevocable. Further no Participant shall have his or her vested percentage decreased by any change in the vesting schedule.
Section 6.2    Breaks in Service for Vesting Purposes. If a Participant with no vested interest, as determined under Section 6.1, incurs one or more consecutive Breaks in Service:
(i)
Prior to 2000, Years of Service before such Break in Service shall not be taken into account for purposes of Section 6.1 until the Participant completes one Year of Service after the Break in Service; and
(j)
Years of Service prior to the Break in Service shall not be taken into account for purposes of Section 6.1 if the number of consecutive Breaks in Service equals or exceeds the greater of (i) the aggregate number of the Participant’s Years of Service (excluding Years of Service not required to be taken into account by reason of any prior Breaks in Service), or (ii) with respect to a Break in Service incurred by a person who is an Employee on or after January 1, 1985, regardless of when the Break in Service occurred, six.
Section 6.3    Forfeitures. All forfeitures of nonvested interests in the Plan occurring during the Plan Year shall be applied to reduce future contributions and shall not be used or applied to increase the benefits to which any Participant would be entitled hereunder.

- 74 -






Section 6.4    
ARTICLE VII    
AMENDMENT, MODIFICATION AND TERMINATION; MERGER
Section 7.1    Right to Amend or Terminate. The Employer Companies hope, and expect, to continue this Plan and the funding of benefits hereunder indefinitely; but such continuance is not assumed as a contractual obligation and, in order to protect both Participants and the Employer Companies against unforeseen contingencies, the Employer Companies expressly reserve the right, by action of their boards of directors, to discontinue contributions to this Plan or to terminate this Plan at any time with respect to its Participants, without the consent of any party. The right to amend this Plan in any respect or particular is vested exclusively in the Board of Directors which right is not conditional on the consent or approval of any other Employer Company. Additionally, any amendment or modification may be made retroactive, if necessary or appropriate to qualify or maintain the Plan as a qualified Plan within the meaning of Code § 401(a), and to qualify or maintain the Trust as tax exempt under Code § 501(a), and the regulations issued thereunder. Notice of any amendment or modification of the Plan may be given by posting, by mail, or by such other means as may be acceptable under ERISA.
Section 7.2    Withdrawal of Employer Company. Any Employer Company, by action of its board of directors, may withdraw from the Plan at any time.
Section 7.3    Liquidation of Trust Fund. Upon termination or partial termination of the Plan, each affected Participant’s benefits, determined prior to the date of termination, shall become fully vested and non-forfeitable, to the extent funded and to the extent such benefit is not restricted pursuant to the provisions of Section 7.9 herein. The assets of the Trust Fund, shall be allocated among Participants and Beneficiaries, after payment of administration expenses of the Plan, in the following order of priority as modified by the provisions of Treasury Regulations § 1.414(l)-1(f) or (h) if a special schedule of benefits (as defined in the regulations) is in effect as a result of a plan merger within the five year period prior to the date of termination:
(g)
Benefits Payable Three Years Prior to Termination. First, to provide benefits that become payable three or more years before the date of termination of the Plan, or that would have become payable had the Participant retired immediately prior to the beginning of such three year period, provided that:
(vii)
the benefit payable to a Participant or Beneficiary (or that could have been payable) shall be based on the provisions of the Plan in effect during the five year period prior to the date of termination of the Plan; and further provided that,
(viii)
the lowest benefit payable during such three year period shall be considered the benefit payable for purposes of this category (a).
(h)
Other Benefits Eligible for Termination Insurance. Second, to the extent that a benefit has not been provided in category (a), the remaining assets shall be allocated to

- 75 -






provide any benefit provided under the Plan for Participants and Beneficiaries to the extent guaranteed by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation pursuant to Title IV of ERISA.
(i)
Other Benefits. To the extent that a benefit under the Plan has not been provided in the foregoing categories, the assets of the Plan shall be allocated to provide all other non-forfeitable benefits under the Plan and, finally, to provide all other benefits under the Plan.
If the assets of the Trust Fund applicable to any of the above categories are insufficient to provide full benefits for all persons in such group, the benefits otherwise payable to such persons shall be allocated pro rata on the basis of the present value of benefits as of the termination date. The Actuary shall calculate the allocation of the assets of the Trust Fund in accordance with the above priority categories, and certify his or her calculations to the Committee. Each of the above classes shall be divided into subclasses, giving first preference within the class to those Participants over 65 and those beneficiaries receiving benefits; second preference to Participants over 60 years of age; third preference to Participants over 55 years of age; fourth preference to Participants under 55 years of age having a deferred vested benefit; and fifth preference to all others. The Committee may establish additional subclasses within the classes set forth in subsection (a), (b), and (c).
Section 7.4    Finality of Payment. Prior to making any distribution under the terms of Section 7.3, the Committee shall satisfy itself that this procedure complies with applicable law and shall obtain such waivers and authorizations from Participants and Beneficiaries as it deems advisable.
Section 7.5    Non-diversion of Assets. Except as provided in Section 3.4 hereof, regarding return of contributions no part of the assets of the Trust, by reason of any amendment or otherwise, shall at any time be used for, or diverted to, purposes other than for the exclusive benefit of Participants, former Participants, or their Beneficiaries, and for the payment of administrative expenses under the Plan, or as will cause, or permit the assets of the Trust to revert to, or become the property of an Employer Company at any time prior to the satisfaction of all liabilities under the Plan. When all such liabilities have been satisfied, any assets remaining will revert to the Employer Companies.
Section 7.6    Committee Functions during Termination. If the Plan is terminated, the Committee in office at the time of such termination shall continue to act with its full powers hereunder until the completion of the allocation and distribution of the assets of the Trust Fund as in this Article VII provided; and a majority of the members of the Committee then in office shall have the power to fill any vacancies occurring in the Committee after such termination by resignation, death, or otherwise. In the event the Committee within a reasonable time after such termination shall not have provided for such allocation and distribution, the Board of Directors shall succeed to all powers and duties of the Committee and shall provide for such allocation and distribution of the assets of the Trust Fund.
Section 7.7    Notice of Termination. Notice of termination of the Plan, in whole or in part, shall be deemed adequately given if an Employer Company or the Committee provides notice of the same to each affected Participant or Beneficiary in such manner and at such time as may be acceptable under ERISA.

- 76 -






Section 7.8    Merger and Consolidation of Plan, Transfer of Assets.
(c)
In the case of any merger or consolidation with, or transfer of assets and liabilities to, any other plan, provisions shall be made so that each Participant in the Plan on the date thereof (if the Plan then terminated) would receive a benefit immediately after the merger, consolidation or transfer which is equal to or greater than the benefit he or she would have been entitled to receive immediately prior to the merger, consolidation or transfer if the Plan had been terminated.
(d)
Effective on December 31, 2012 (the “Transfer Time”), all assets and liabilities of the Plan attributable to all Freight Employees (as defined below) shall be and hereby are transferred to and shall become assets and liabilities of the UPS Pension Plan. This transfer is evidenced by a Memorandum of Understanding executed by UPS Freight and by the Teamsters National UPS Freight Negotiating Committee (the “Teamster Committee”) dated October 23, 2012.
Freight Employee means an individual identified in the Memorandum of Understanding between UPS Freight and the Teamsters National UPS Freight Negotiating Committee executed on October 23, 2012, which is incorporated by reference herein and for convenience is set forth below:
(i)
each current, former or retired Employee who is, or was, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters;
(ii)
last earned a benefit in the UPS Pension Plan as of January 1, 2013 or the date of his or her termination of employment, if earlier; and
(iii)
has accrued a benefit under this Plan.
Section 7.9    Discontinuance of Plan Within Ten Years of Amendment. In the event that the Plan is discontinued by any Employer Company within ten (10) years after any amendment to the Plan which increases the benefits payable under the Plan, or if the full current costs (including current service contributions and interest on any unfunded liability for the initial cost of retroactive increases in benefits not covered by current service contributions) are not met by such Employer Company during such ten (10) year period, the contributions which may be used to provide benefits for any one of the twenty-five (25) most highly compensated employees on the effective date of such amendment, whose anticipated retirement annuity based upon the rate of compensation as of that date would be more than $1,500 per year, until such full current costs are funded for the first time, shall not exceed the greatest of:
(a)
The total contributions which would have been applied to provide a retirement annuity for any such employee if the Plan prior to such amendment had continued without change;
(b)
$20,000; or

- 77 -






(c)
The amount which would have been provided by contributions under the Plan prior to such amendment if the Plan had been terminated the day before the effective date of such amendment, plus an amount computed by multiplying the number of years during which current costs beginning with the effective date of such amendment are met by (i) 20% of any such employee’s annual compensation or (ii) $10,000, whichever is less.
Any excess reserves resulting from the application of the foregoing provisions of this Section shall be used and applied toward the funding of the benefits due to other Participants in the Plan who are employees of such Employer Company, in accordance with the provisions of the Plan.
If the Plan is in full force and effect and the full current costs have been met, the foregoing conditions shall not restrict the current payment of full benefits called for by the Plan to any Participant. The limitations of this Section shall be inapplicable to the extent the Commissioner of Internal Revenue or his or her duly authorized representative may later rule that the limitations are no longer necessary for the Plan to meet the requirements for qualifications under the Code.
If this Plan is not terminated within the period specified above, the benefits, if any, which have been withheld from a Participant in accordance with this Section shall be turned over to the Participant or his or her representative at the end of said period or as soon thereafter as the full current costs of the Plan attributable to the said period have been met for the first time.
If this Plan is terminated within any of the said periods or thereafter, but before the full current costs of the Plan attributable to any of the said periods have been met for the first time, then any benefits which have been withheld from a Participant in accordance with this Section shall, upon termination of this Plan, be distributed as provided in Section 7.3, except that no part of such funds shall be distributed or used to fund benefits for any Participant who is affected by the limitations of this Article.

The Committee shall meet at least once during each calendar quarter. A majority of the members of the Committee at the time in office shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.

Section 9.4    Claims Procedure.
(d)
All claims for benefits hereunder shall be directed to the Committee or to a member of the Committee designated for that purpose. Within ninety (90) days following receipt of a claim for benefits, the UPS Corporate Benefits Department manager responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Plan (the “Initial Reviewer”) shall determine whether the claimant is entitled to benefits under the Plan, unless additional time is required for processing the claim. In this event, the Initial Reviewer shall, within the initial ninety (90)-day period, notify the claimant that additional time is needed, explain the reason for the extension, and indicate when a decision on the claim will be made. The initial decision must be made within 180 days of the date the claim is filed.
(e)
A denial by the Initial Reviewer of a claim for benefits shall be stated in writing and delivered or mailed to the claimant. Such notice shall set forth the specific reasons for the denial, written in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant. The notice shall include specific reference to the Plan provisions on which the denial is based and a description of any additional material or information necessary to perfect the claim, an explanation of why this material or information is necessary, and the steps to be taken if the claimant wishes to submit his or her claim for review, a description of the Plan’s review procedures, and the time limits applicable to such procedures, and a statement of the claimant’s right to bring a civil action under ERISA § 502(a) following an adverse benefit determination upon review.
(f)
The Committee shall afford a reasonable opportunity to any claimant whose request for benefits has been denied for a review of the decision denying the claim. The review must be requested by written application to the Committee within sixty (60) days following receipt by the claimant of written notification of denial of his or her claim. Pursuant to this review, the claimant or his or her duly authorized representative may review any documents, records and other information which are pertinent to the denied claim and submit issues and comments in writing. A claimant may also submit documents, records and other information relating to his or her claim, without regard to whether such information was submitted in connection with his or her original benefit claim.
(g)
A decision on the claimant’s appeal of the denial of benefits shall ordinarily be made by the Committee at the next regularly scheduled meeting that immediately follows the receipt of the request for review, unless the request for review is received within 30 days of such meeting date. In that case, the review will occur at the second regularly scheduled meeting following the Plan’s receipt of the request for review. If an extension of time is required because of special circumstances, the Committee will provide the claimant with written notice of the extension describing the special circumstances and the date as of which the benefit determination will be made, prior to the commencement of the extension. A benefit determination will be made no

- 81 -






later than the third regularly scheduled meeting of the Committee following the Plan’s receipt of the request for review.
The decision on review shall be in writing and shall include specific reasons for the decision, written in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant, specific reference to the Plan provisions on which the decision is based, a statement that the claimant or his or her authorized personal representative may review any documents and records relevant to the claim determination, a statement describing further voluntary appeals procedures, if any, and a statement of the claimant’s right to bring civil action under ERISA § 502(a).
Section 9.5    Forfeiture in Case of Unlocatable Participant or Beneficiary. If the Committee is unable to pay benefits to any Participant or Beneficiary who is entitled to benefits hereunder when such benefits are due because the identity or whereabouts of such person cannot be ascertained, the Committee shall proceed as follows:
(a)
As soon as administratively possible after the Committee has determined that a Participant or Beneficiary cannot be paid due to the circumstances stated above, the Committee shall submit the last known address, and any other information the Committee deems appropriate, to a locator service.
(b)
If the locator service provides the Committee with a new address for the Participant or Beneficiary, the Committee shall mail the benefit payment to the new address as soon as administratively possible after such new address is known. If the locator service fails to identify a new address for the Participant or Beneficiary, all amounts held for his or her benefit shall be forfeited as of the last day of the Plan Year in which the locator service notifies the Committee that it cannot locate the individual. Upon forfeiture, all liability for payment of the benefit shall thereupon terminate. In any such case, the funds released as a result of such forfeiture shall be dealt with as provided in Section 6.3. However, if an individual subsequently makes what the Committee determines to be a valid and proper claim to the Committee for such amounts, the account or accounts will be restored and will be distributable without interest in accordance with the terms of this Plan.
Section 9.6    Liability of the Committee. The Committee and the members thereof, to the extent of the exercise of their authority, shall discharge their duties with respect to the Plan solely in the interests of the Plan’s Participants and their Beneficiaries, and for the exclusive purpose of providing benefits thereto in accordance with the terms of the Plan and to defray the reasonable administration expenses thereof. In all such actions or omissions the Committee and each member thereof shall exercise the care, skill, prudence and diligence required under ERISA; provided, however, that no member shall be responsible for the actions or omissions of a member or any other party that is a fiduciary with respect to this Plan, other than himself or herself, except to the extent required under ERISA.
Section 9.7    Fiduciary Responsibility Insurance; Bonding. If the Employer Company has not done so, the Committee may direct the purchase of appropriate insurance on behalf of the Plan and

- 82 -






the Plan’s fiduciaries, including the members of the Committee, to cover liability or losses occurring by reason of the acts or omissions of a fiduciary; provided, however, that to the extent purchased by the Plan such insurance must permit recourse by the insurer against the fiduciary in the case of a breach of a fiduciary duty or obligation by such fiduciary. The cost of such insurance shall be borne by the Fund, unless the insurance is provided by and paid for by the Employer Company. The Trustees shall also obtain a bond covering all the Plan’s fiduciaries, to be paid from the assets of the Trust Fund.
Section 9.8    Meetings of Committee. The Committee shall hold meetings at least once during each calendar quarter upon such notice, at such place or places, and at such time or times as it may determine from time to time. Notice of a meeting may be waived.
Section 9.9    Compensation of Committee. The members of the Committee may receive reasonable compensation for their services as the Board of Directors may from time to time determine. Such compensation and all other expenses of the Committee, including the compensation of officers, actuaries or counsel, agents or others that the Committee may employ, shall be paid out of the Trust Fund, unless paid by the Employer Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Committee member who is employed on a full-time basis by an Employer Company shall receive no compensation, but shall be reimbursed from the Fund for reasonable expenses incurred.
Section 9.10    Reliance by Committee. Board of Directors and Committee members shall be fully protected with respect to any action taken or suffered by them in good faith in reliance upon the advice or opinion of any actuary, accountant, legal counsel (other than an employee of an Employer Company), or physician, and all action so taken or suffered shall be conclusive upon all Participants and Beneficiaries, and any other person claiming under the Plan.
Section 9.11    Books and Records. The Committee shall keep appropriate books and records.
Section 9.12    Disbursements. The Committee shall determine the manner in which the Trust Fund shall be disbursed under the terms of the Plan and Trust Agreement.
Section 9.13    Allocation of Responsibility Among Fiduciaries for Plan and Trust Administration. The fiduciaries hereunder, including the Trustee, the Employer Companies, the Board of Directors and the Committee, shall have only those specific powers, duties, responsibilities and obligations as are specifically given them under this Plan or the Trust Agreement. In general, the Employer Companies shall have the sole responsibility for making the contributions necessary to provide benefits under the Plan as specified in Article V, and the Board of Directors shall have the sole authority to appoint and remove the Trustee, members of the Committee and to amend or terminate, in whole or in part, this Plan or the Trust, except as otherwise provided. The Committee shall be responsible for the administration of the Plan and the management and administration of the Trust and shall have the responsibility for the appointment and removal of any Investment Manager except to the extent such responsibility is delegated to another named fiduciary under the Trust and or the Plan. Subject to any direction from the Committee, the Trustee shall have the responsibility for the administration of the Trust and the management of the assets held under the Trust, all as specifically provided income Trust. Each fiduciary warrants that any directions given, information furnished, or action taken by it shall be in accordance with the provisions of the Plan or the Trust, as the case

- 83 -






may be, authorizing or providing for such direction, information or action. Furthermore, each fiduciary may rely upon any such direction, information or action of another fiduciary as being proper under this Plan or the Trust, and is not required under this Plan or the Trust to inquire into the propriety of any such direction, information or action. It is intended under this Plan and the Trust that each fiduciary shall be responsible for the proper exercise of its own powers, duties, responsibilities and obligations under this Plan and the Trust and shall not be responsible for any act or failure to act of another fiduciary. No fiduciary guarantees the Trust Fund in any manner against investment loss or depreciation in asset value.

(a)
Unless a Retired Participant or eligible Covered Dependent elects to defer coverage under REHCP in accordance with this Section 12.3(a), Medical Benefits shall begin to be paid with respect to claims incurred by Retired Participants, or their Covered Dependents, after the date on which coverage for medical expenses ends for such

- 98 -






individuals under the UPS Flexible Benefits Plan (or any successor health plan covering active Employees). A Retired Participant or a Covered Dependent, who has health coverage under another plan may defer coverage under REHCP for himself or herself initially or at a later date provided that at the time he or she applies or reapplies for coverage under REHCP, he or she must provide written notice of the loss of other health coverage within 60 days of such loss and must produce proof for himself or herself of continuous coverage under another health plan from the date coverage under the UPS Flexible Benefits Plan or the REHCP ended to the date as of which he or she desires to elect to commence or resume coverage under REHCP. A Retired Participant’s election to defer coverage under the REHCP either initially or at a later date will be binding on all of his or her Covered Dependents. As long as the Retired Participant is covered under the REHCP, his or her Covered Dependents or any of them may defer coverage initially or at a later date. Once coverage begins under the REHCP in accordance with this Section 12.3(a) and subject to subsections (b) and (c) below, Medical Benefits shall be paid with respect to claims incurred up until the first of the following occurs:

(iv)

Notwithstanding any contrary provision, if the Committee determines that a Retired Participant or a Covered Dependent committed fraud or intentionally

- 99 -






misrepresented information regarding the Plan, the Committee may terminate coverage retroactively and the Retired Participant or Covered Dependent may be required to repay the Plan for any Medical Benefits paid as a result of such fraud or misrepresentation.

(b)
Notwithstanding Section 12.3(a), in the event that a Participant Contribution is required to be paid with respect to Medical Benefits for any Retired Participant or Covered Dependent, coverage under the REHCP and payment of Medical Benefits shall cease to be made with respect to claims incurred by such individuals as of the first day of any calendar month for which a Participant Contribution is due but is not timely paid (a “Delinquent Month”). The Committee may terminate coverage retroactively for any Delinquent Month and the Retired Participant or Covered Dependent may be required to repay the Plan for any Medical Benefits paid with respect to claims incurred during any Delinquent Month. A Retired Participant may elect to discontinue Medical Benefits for his or her Covered Dependents (in favor of no or a reduced level of benefits as may be permitted from time to time by the Committee) by filing a form for this purpose with the Committee or its designee, and by providing such other information as the Committee or its designee shall require. In such event, payment of Medical Benefits shall cease to be made with respect to claims incurred by such Covered Dependents after the effective date of the discontinuance of coverage, or in the case of the election of a reduced level of benefits, when the applicable limitations with respect to such reduced benefit level have been exceeded or the Retired Participant (or Covered Dependent) ceases to pay any required Participant Contribution necessary to sustain the benefit level elected. The Committee may establish procedures for permitting Covered Dependents for whom Medical Benefits have been discontinued to later resume coverage, but only upon the provision of evidence satisfactory to the Committee of medical insurability.
(c)
Notwithstanding Section 12.2(a), in certain circumstances and for a limited period of time, commencing on and after January 1, 1987, a Covered Dependent who would otherwise be ineligible for Medical Benefits under this Article XII due to the death or divorce of the Retired Participant, or who is no longer a Covered Dependent, shall be entitled to elect to continue to be eligible for such Medical Benefits (“Continuation Coverage”) upon the occurrence of the following events (“Qualifying Events”):
(i)

Upon the failure of a child of a Retired Participant or the Spouse or Domestic Partner of a Retirement Participant to satisfy the requirements of paragraphs (a)(i), (ii) or (iii) of Section 12.2, so that he or she is no longer a Covered Dependent, such child may elect to continue to be eligible for Medical Benefits for a period not to exceed 36 months following such date, subject to the restrictions of Section 12.3(c)(iv). The 12-month extension described in paragraph (a)(ii) of Section 12.2 for a child on school leave shall be applied toward the period of Continuation Coverage described in this paragraph.
(iv)
Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraphs (i), (ii) and (iii), Continuation Coverage for a Covered Dependent shall cease upon the first to occur of the following:
(A)
The date that such Covered Dependent becomes covered (as an employee or otherwise) under any other group health plan which does not contain any exclusion or limitation with respect to any preexisting condition of such individual.
(B)
The date that such Covered Dependent becomes entitled to receive Medicare benefits under Title XVIII of the Social Security Act.
(C)
The date upon which this Plan ceases to provide retiree medical benefits to any Retired Participant and his or her Covered Dependents, and the Employer Companies do not provide such benefits through another funding vehicle or group health plan or plans.
(D)
The date upon which coverage ceases as a result of the Covered Dependent failing to make timely payment of the premium required pursuant to Section 12.(3)(d).
(d)
The Committee shall require the payment of a premium by a Covered Dependent for any period of Continuation Coverage, subject to the following restrictions:
(i)
The decision to require payment of a premium, and the amount of such premium, shall be applied consistently to all Covered Dependents of Retired Participants similarly situated;
(ii)
The premium shall not exceed 102 percent of the “applicable premium” for such period, as that term is defined in ERISA § 604; and
(iii)
The premium may, at the election of the Covered Dependent, be made in monthly installments.
If an election by a Covered Dependent to receive Continuation Coverage is made after the occurrence of the Qualifying Event, the Covered Dependent shall be

- 101 -






permitted to pay for Continuation Coverage during the period preceding the election, such payment to be made within 45 days of the date of the election.
(e)
(i)    The Committee, or its delegate, shall inform each Retired Participant and his or her Spouse (if any) of the rights provided under this Section 12.3, at the time of commencement of coverage under this Article or as otherwise provided by law.
(ii)
The Committee, or its delegate, shall notify each Covered Dependent eligible to elect Continuation Coverage of his or her rights under this Section 12.3 within 14 days after the Committee, or its delegate, is notified of the occurrence of a Qualifying Event as set forth in Section 12.3(c). Notification to a Covered Dependent who is the Spouse of the Retired Participant shall be treated as notification to all other Covered Dependents who may be eligible to elect Continuation Coverage and who reside with such Spouse at the time such notification is made.
(f)
A Covered Dependent must affirmatively elect, by a writing delivered to the Committee or its delegate, to receive Continuation Coverage. Such election must be made no later than 60 days after the later of (1) the date of the Qualifying Event or (2) the date such Covered Dependent receives notice under Section 12.3(e)(ii).
Section 12.4    Funding Method and Policy. All contributions to fund Medical Benefits provided under this Article XII shall be made by the Employer Companies, except those relating to (i) Continuation Coverage provided for in Section 12.3 hereof and (ii) that portion of coverage with respect to which Participant Contributions are required as provided for in Section 12.10 hereof. Subject to the restrictions of this Section 12.4 and Section 12.5, and taking into account Participant Contributions and contributions for Continuation Coverage, the Employer Companies shall contribute to the Medical Benefits Account an annual amount which is reasonably estimated to cover the total cost of the Medical Benefits to be provided hereunder and which satisfies the general requirements applicable to deductions allowable under Code § 404 (as set forth in Treasury Regulation § 1.404(a)-1). The total cost of providing Medical Benefits shall be determined in accordance with any generally accepted actuarial method which is reasonable in view of the provisions and coverage of the Plan, the funding medium, and other applicable considerations. The amount deductible by each Employer Company on account of such contributions for any taxable year shall not exceed the greater of:
(a)
An amount determined by distributing the remaining unfunded costs of past and current service credits as a level amount, or as a level percentage of compensation, over the remaining future service of each Participant employed by the Employer Company.
(b)
10 percent of the cost which would be required to completely fund or purchase Medical Benefits provided hereunder for the Participants employed by the Employer Company and their Covered Dependents.

- 102 -






In determining the amount deductible, an Employer Company must apply either paragraph (a) for all Participants or paragraph (b) for all Participants. If contributions paid by an Employer Company in a taxable year to fund Medical Benefits hereunder exceed the limitation of this Section, but otherwise satisfy the conditions for deduction under Code § 404, then the excess contributions may be carried over in accordance with the provisions of Treasury Regulation § 1.404(a)(3)(f) and be deducted in a later year. For the purpose of applying paragraph (a), if the remaining future service of a Participant is one year or less, it shall be treated as one year.
Section 12.5    Subordination to Retirement Benefits    .
(a)
It is intended that the Medical Benefits provided under this Article XII, when added to any Life Insurance Protection provided under this Plan be subordinate at all times to the retirement benefits provided under this Plan. Therefore, the aggregate of contributions (made after the effective date of this Article XII) for the funding of Medical Benefits pursuant to this Article XII, as well as any Life Insurance Protection, shall at no time exceed 25 percent of the aggregate contributions (made after such effective date) other than contributions to fund past service credits.
(b)
For purposes of this Section 12.5, “Life Insurance Protection” means any benefit paid under the Plan on behalf of a Participant as a result of the Participant’s death to the extent such payment exceeds the amount of the reserve to provide the retirement benefits for such Participant existing at his or her death.
Section 12.6    Forfeitures. In the event that a Participant’s interest in the Medical Benefits Account is forfeited prior to termination of such account, an amount equal to the amount of the forfeiture must be applied as soon as possible to reduce Employer contributions to fund the Medical Benefits provided under this Article XII.
Section 12.7    Benefits Provision. The benefits payable pursuant to this Article XII shall be limited to the payment of Medical Benefits for Retired Participants and their Covered Dependents. No benefit shall be provided which is not described in Code § 401(h) or the Regulations thereunder. It is anticipated that the same level of Medical Benefits shall be provided to all eligible Retired Participants, and in any event the Medical Benefits provided under this Article XII and the Employer contributions to fund said Medical Benefits shall not discriminate in favor of the officers, shareholders, supervisory employees, or highly compensated employees of the Employer Companies within the meaning of Treasury Regulation § 1.401-14.
Section 12.8    Supervision of Account. The Committee shall have general supervision of the operation of the Medical Benefits Account shall conduct the business of said Account, including the administration of claims, in accordance with Article IX and the other provisions of this Plan, except as otherwise provided in this Article XII, or in accordance with applicable law.
Section 12.9    Coordination with Employer-Maintained Group Medical Insurance for Active Participants and their Covered Dependents. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article XII, if a Retired Participant, or his or her Covered Dependent, is eligible for Medical Benefits under this Article XII and also eligible for medical benefits under another group medical insurance plan

- 103 -






sponsored and maintained by an Employer Company for active employees and their covered dependents (for example, the UPS Insurance Plan) (“Alternate Plan”), then no Medical Benefits under this Article XII shall be paid. Payment of Medical Benefits under this Article XII shall commence on the day following the day eligibility for benefits under the Alternate Plan ceases except to the extent coverage is deferred pursuant to Section 12.3(a).
Section 12.10    Participant Contributions.
(a)
The Committee may, from time to time, require Retired Participants and Covered Dependents to pay a portion of the cost of Medical Benefits as an annual contribution (a “Participant Contribution”), and shall in such event establish objective procedures for determining the amount and payment of Participant Contributions.
(b)
Effective for individuals who first become Retired Participants on or after January 1, 1993, and their Covered Dependents, an annual Participant Contribution shall be required in an amount equal to the excess of (i) over (ii) where:
(i)
is the projected per-capita cost of providing Medical Benefits for Retired Participants and/or Covered Dependents, or specified classes thereof, for the Plan Year, as determined by the Committee in accordance with such reasonable nondiscriminatory procedures as it shall adopt from time to time; and
(ii)
is the Retired Participant’s Defined Dollar Benefit (“DDB”) balance, as described in Section 12.10(c) or (d) below.
(c)
Subject to the rules of this Section 12.10(c), a Retired Participant will earn a DDB amount for each Year of Service with an Employer Company which will be applied to purchase Medical Benefits before the Retired Participant or his or her Covered Dependents become eligible for Medicare (“Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage”) and after the Retired Participant or his or her Covered Dependents become eligible for Medicare (“Medicare Eligible Coverage”). The DDB amount earned for each Year of Service with an Employer Company will be accumulated over the period that the Retired Participant is employed with an Employer Company as a DDB balance (the “Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance” and “Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance,” collectively, the “DDB Balance”).
(d)
A Retired Participant’s DDB amount for any Year of Service after December 31, 2000 with an Employer Company will be equal to the DDB amount for the Employer Company for which the Retired Participant performed service during that Plan Year as set forth in Appendix F. If a Retired Participant performs service under more than one schedule in any Plan Year, the Retired Participant shall receive credit for his or her Year of Service, if any, completed in that Plan Year under the schedule with the highest DDB amount under which he or she has at least one Hour of Service. The DDB amount for each Year of Service with an Employer Company while it is an Employer Company completed prior January 1, 2001 shall be equal to $250 for Pre-

- 104 -






Medicare Eligible Coverage and $42 for Medicare Eligible Coverage. However, except as provided in Appendix F, no DDB amount shall be earned for Years of Service with an Employer Company that first becomes an Employer Company on or after January 1, 2001 completed before that Employer Company first began to offer Medical Benefits under this Plan. Except as provided Section 12.10(g)(ii), in no event shall the Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance exceed $7500 or the Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance exceed $1260. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Grandfathered Retired Participant’s DDB amount for any Year of Service (up to a maximum of $7,500) with an Employer Company shall never be less than $250 for Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage and $42 for Medicare Eligible Coverage.
(e)
The Retired Participant and his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner each may apply the DDB Balance to purchase Medical Benefits. If the Retired Participant has Covered Dependents who are children (including adult children who are Covered Dependents), they will be treated as a unit with the younger of the Retired Participant and his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner. If the Retired Participant does not have a Spouse or Domestic Partner, the Covered Dependents who are children (including adult children who are Covered Dependents) will be treated as a separate unit and the Retired Participant and his or her Covered Dependent unit each may apply the DDB Balance to purchase Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage or Medicare Eligible Coverage. If the Retired Participant and his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner who is a Covered Dependent predecease the Retired Participant's Covered Dependents who are children (including adult children who are Covered Dependents), such Covered Dependents who are children will be treated as a separate Covered Dependent unit having the deceased Retired Participant's Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance unless the Covered Dependent is eligible for a Retiree Reimbursement Account (“RRA”) , as described below.
A bookkeeping account, the RRA, will be established for a Retired Participant or his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner, if any, for each Plan Year in which the Retired Participant or his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner is at least age 65 and eligible for Medicare as a result of his or her age. The RRA established for each of the Retired Participant and his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner who is at least age 65 will be credited with the lesser of (i) the Retired Participant’s Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance amount or (ii) the maximum RRA credit established by the Committee for that Plan Year. No RRA will be established for periods prior to the Retired Participant or his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner becoming age 65 and eligible for Medicare. Effective January 1, 2013, a RRA will be established for a Covered Dependent described in Section 12.2(b)(iii) who is a child upon such Covered Dependent becoming age 65 and eligible for Medicare. Any unused DDB Balance or balance to a RRA may not be carried forward from one Plan Year to a future Plan Year.

(f)
The Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance is applied to the Participant Contribution for each Plan Year (or portion thereof) prior to the calendar month in which the Retired Participant or his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner, as applicable, becomes eligible for Medicare. The Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance is applied to the Participant Contribution for each Plan Year (or portion thereof) from the first day of the calendar month in which the Retired Participant or his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner, as applicable, becomes eligible for Medicare. The DDB Balance of a Covered Dependent who is not a Spouse or Domestic Partner will be adjusted to the Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance as of the first day of the calendar month in which the younger parent first becomes eligible for Medicare or if there is no Spouse or Domestic Partner, as of the first day of the calendar month in which the Retired Participant first becomes eligible for Medicare. Notwithstanding the forgoing, if a Retired Participant or his or her Spouse or Domestic Partner becomes eligible for Medicare as a result of end stage renal disease (“ESRD”), the Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage DDB Balance shall continue to apply to such Retired Participant or Spouse or Domestic Partner during the applicable Medicare coordination period during which a UPS group health plan is required to provide primary coverage.
(g)
The DDB Balance credited to a Retired Participant is determined as follows:
(i)
For a Retired Participant who did not complete at least one Year of Service with an Employer Company prior to 1993, the DDB Balance is the sum of the DDB amounts for each of the Retired Participant’s Years of Service with an Employer Company as determined under Section 12.10(d).
(ii)
For each Grandfathered Retired Participant who completed at least one Year of Service with an Employer Company prior to 1993, the DDB Balance is calculated as follows:    
(A)
The sum of the DDB amounts for each of his or her Years of Service with an Employer Company as determined under Section 12.10(d) subject to the maximum DDB balance thereunder plus
(B)
Two times the DDB amount for each of his or her Years of Service with an Employer Company completed prior to January 1, 1993 (up to a maximum of $15,000 for Pre-Medicare Eligible Coverage and $2520 for Medicare Eligible Coverage).
(iii)
As a minimum, each Grandfathered Retired Participant described in Section 12.10(g)(ii) shall be credited with a minimum DDB Balance in accordance with the following table:
