ALCOA SAVINGS PLAN FOR BARGAINING EMPLOYEES

AS AMENDED AND RESTATED

EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2010

The Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees (the “Bargaining Plan” or “Plan”) is maintained pursuant to various collective bargaining agreements entered into between Alcoa Inc. (herein called “Alcoa”) or its subsidiaries and the duly authorized bargaining representative for certain bargaining employees to provide said employees with any or all of the benefits described herein. The Bargaining Plan is a defined contribution, individual account plan which incorporates an Internal Revenue Code Section 401(k) wage reduction arrangement, intending to qualify under Section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, for the exclusive benefit of its eligible employees.

Prior to January 1, 1993, the Bargaining Plan was known as the Alcoa Pre-Tax Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees. It had been initially adopted effective July 3, 1986, and was subsequently amended and restated from time to time thereafter, as described in Schedule A.

The Bargaining Plan is the survivor plan as the result of mergers with several Subsidiaries’ plans. Schedule A attached hereto contains the details and provisions related to such mergers.

Effective January 1, 2002, the Alcoa Stock Fund was replaced with an employee stock ownership plan, within the meaning of Section 4975(e) of the Code. The assets held in the ESOP must be invested primarily in employer securities as defined in Code Section 409(l).

Effective as of January 1, 2010, the Bargaining Plan is amended and restated again to incorporate provisions of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 and as amended by the Job Creation and Worker Assistance Act of 2002, the Pension Protection Act of 2006, the Worker, Retiree, and Employer Recovery Act of 2008 (“WRERA”), and is intended as good faith compliance with the requirements of Heroes Earnings Assistance and Relief Tax Act of 2008 (“HEART”), to be construed in accordance with the guidance issued thereunder.

Effective January 1, 2011, the Plan is renamed the Alcoa Retirement Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees.

(c) Payroll Deductions for Pre-Tax Savings made pursuant to Automatic Enrollment are subject to Automatic Pre-Tax Rate Escalation whereby, providing the Participant has participated in the Plan at least ninety days, the Participant’s Pre-Tax Savings rate will be increased by one percent on each April 1 after his or her Participation Date until the Pre-Tax Savings rate attains a target rate of six percent of Eligible Compensation. A Participant may change the percentage rate in whole percentages up to the maximum permitted by the Plan or opt out of Automatic Pre-Tax Rate Escalation at any time in a manner designated by the Plan Administrator that is Properly Received.

Any Participant may elect to begin or end Automatic Pre-Tax Savings Rate Escalation at any time in a manner designated by the Plan that is Properly Received. An election to begin Automatic Pre-Tax Saving Rate Escalation shall designate a beginning Pre-Tax Savings rate, a target rate up to the maximum permitted by the Plan, and an annual rate (in whole percentages) by which the Pre-Tax rate increases until the target rate is attained.

The portion of

his or her Variable Compensation Award which is contributed to the Plan is equal to the percentage of such Award using the Participant’s Pre-Tax Savings contribution percentage. All such Participating Employer Contributions equivalent to a percentage of a Variable Compensation Award are allocated as Pre-Tax Savings, subject to the other terms and conditions under the Plan which affect Pre-Tax Savings, and are nonforfeitable upon contribution to the Plan. Prior to January 1, 2011, an Eligible Employee may elect to pay into the Plan a whole percentage in ten percent increments up to a maximum of fifty percent of his or her Variable Compensation Award, not to exceed a dollar amount of $1,500 for any Plan.

Effective January 1, 2011, an Eligible Employee may no longer elect to pay into the Plan a percentage of his or her Variable Compensation Award.

(e) Any employee contributions which have been contributed to a Participant’s account under a qualified defined contribution plan of a Participating Employer which has been merged with this Plan, are credited to the Participant as Pre-Tax and After-Tax Savings Accounts, as applicable, as determined by the Plan Administrator, and thereafter be treated like Pre-Tax and After-Tax Savings with respect to withdrawals, loans, and investment options under the Plan. Any protected optional form of benefits provided under said qualified defined contribution plan will be maintained under the Plan.

(f) All Participating Employer Contributions and Negotiated Deferral Contributions, Restricted Discretionary Contributions, Employer Retirement Income Contributions, and Retiree Medical Savings Contributions are irrevocable, except that any such contribution which was made by a mistake of fact or conditioned upon qualification of the Plan or any amendment thereof under Section 401 of the Code or upon the deductibility of the contribution under Section 404 of the Code, will be returned to the Participating Employer within one year after the payment of the contribution made by mistake, the denial of the qualification or the disallowance of the deduction (to the extent disallowed), whichever is applicable.

(g) A Participant may change his or her election for Payroll Deductions, effective for the first full Payroll Period following the date that such request is Properly Received.

(h) A Participant may direct that Payroll Deductions for Savings be discontinued beginning with the first full Payroll Period following the date that such direction is Properly Received. A Participant may direct that such deductions be resumed beginning with the first full Payroll Period following the date that such direction is Properly Received, except as provided in the definition of Financial Hardship.

(j) Additional limitations on Savings, Participating Employer Contributions, Negotiated Deferral Contributions and Restricted Discretionary Contributions are provided in Appendices A, B and C. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event it is determined by the Benefits Management Committee or its designee that for any particular month the maximum percentage of Eligible Compensation which a Participant may elect to pay into the Plan as Pre-Tax Savings must be reduced so as to prevent the actual percentage of Pre-Tax Savings for Participants who are Highly Compensated Employees from exceeding the elected percentage of Pre-Tax Savings of all other Participants, pursuant to the limitations in the Appendices, the maximum percentage of Pre-Tax Savings for said Highly Compensated Employees may be reduced, for any particular Month to the extent deemed necessary by the Benefits Management Committee or its designee. The said Participants’ previously elected percentage of After-Tax Savings will not be affected in any manner by a reduction of the maximum percentage of Pre-Tax Savings in accordance with the foregoing.

(k) An Eligible Employee who meets the requirements listed below may make an election for a Plan Year to defer extra Pre-Tax Catch-Up Contributions in an amount that equals an annual maximum amount of $5,000, or such other amount adjusted for cost-of-living increases as may be provided by the Secretary of the Treasury pursuant to Section 414(v) (2) (C) of the Code. Eligible Employees who meet the requirements are individuals who i) have attained 50 or will attain age 50 during the applicable Plan Year, ii) prior to January 1, 2011 are contributing the maximum percentage of Pre-Tax Savings permitted under the Plan, or on or after January 1, 2011 are contributing no less than six percent of Eligible Compensation in Pre-Tax Savings; and iii) have submitted an election to make Pre-Tax Catch-Up Contributions for applicable Plan Year.

In the case where a Participant is awarded back wages pursuant to a settlement or arbitration agreement by which the Participant is to be “made whole,” in the case of an individual who is eligible to make Pre-Tax Catch-Up Contributions, the Participant may defer any portion of the awarded back wages up to the annual maximum amount of the Pre-Tax Catch-Up Contribution for the current Plan Year, provided an election to defer such amount is submitted prior to the date payment of the awarded back wages is made.

(l) In the case where a Participant is awarded back wages pursuant to a settlement or arbitration agreement by which the Participant is to be “made whole” with respect to such award, the Participant must contribute Pre-Tax Savings attributable to the back wages or portion of back wages awarded pertaining to the current Plan Year only (“Corrective Contributions”). The Corrective Contributions will be based on the percentage of Compensation for Pre-Tax Savings designated by the Participant in an election in effect, or defaulted to pursuant to section 2(b) and 2(c), on the date of the Participant’s termination that preceded the period for which the award has been granted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, contributions of Corrective Contributions may not cause the Participant’s Eligible Compensation to exceed the limitation on compensation imposed by Section 401(a)(17) of the Code, or the limitations described in Appendices A or B.

All employer contributions which have been contributed to a Participant’s account under a qualified defined contribution plan of a Participating Employer which has been merged with this Plan, are credited to the Participant as Participating Employer Contributions and thereafter are treated like Participating Employer Contributions with respect to withdrawals, loans, and investment options under the Plan.

(2) Eligible retirement plan: An eligible retirement plan is an individual retirement account or individual retirement annuity described in Sections 408(a) and 408(b) of the Code, a qualified trust described in Section 401(a) of the Code that accepts the distributee’s eligible rollover distribution, an annuity plan or contract described in Sections 403(a) and 403(b) of the Code, or an eligible plan under Section 457(b) of the Code that is maintained by a state, political subdivision of a state, or any agency or instrumentality of a state or political subdivision of a state that agrees to separately account for amounts transferred into such plan from this Plan.

b. the Participant, after receiving the notice, affirmatively elects a distribution.

(iv) If the Participant dies with an account balance in the Plan, the entire interest of the Participant will be distributed not later than 5 years after the death of the Participant.

(b) Upon any distribution of Company Stock from the Alcoa Stock Fund, the Trustee delivers to the recipient a certificate representing the number of whole shares of Company Stock being distributed and cash equal to the Current Market Value on the Effective Date of distribution of any fractional interest in a share being distributed. With respect to any shares of Company Stock which are to be sold for the account of the recipient, the Trustee may, at its option (1) purchase such shares for Plan purposes at the Current Market Value on the Effective Date of distribution, or (2) sell such shares on the open market for the account of the recipient.

SECTION 14. NONASSIGNABILITY

Except as required under ERISA, no right or interest of any Participant or Beneficiary in the Plan or in such Participant’s accounts is (a) assignable or transferable or subject to any lien in whole or in part, either directly or by operation of law or otherwise, including, but not by way of limitation, alienation, execution, levy, garnishment, attachment, pledge, bankruptcy or in any other manner other than a transfer as a result of death or mental incompetence, or (b) liable for, or subject to, any obligation or liability of such Participant or Beneficiary.

The Plan Administrator or Designee has promulgated procedures to determine whether a domestic relations order is a qualified domestic relations order. The procedures will be provided to a participant or alternate payee upon written request, or upon receipt of the domestic relations order by the Plan Administrator or Designee.

SECTION 15. EXTENT OF PARTICIPANT’S RIGHTS

(a) General. No person has any interest in or right to any part of the assets held under the Plan or the income thereon, except as and to the extent expressly provided in the Plan.

At the time of withdrawal by a Participant or Beneficiary, he or she will receive shares or cash. There is no guarantee that the Current Market Value of any investment will be equal to or greater than the amount of the Participant’s Savings therein. This Plan is designed to comply with and operate under Section 404(c) of ERISA. A Participant and his or her Beneficiaries assume all risk in connection with any decrease in the value of any investments allocated to such Participant’s account. For purposes of Section 404(c)(1) of ERISA, in the absence of Participant of Beneficiary investment direction, a Participant or Beneficiary shall be treated as having exercised control over the assets invested in any investment which qualifies as a QDIA in accordance with Section 404(c)(5) of ERISA and the regulations promulgated thereunder.

The Plan does not and should not be construed as conferring any rights upon any person for a continuation of employment, nor does it interfere with the rights of Alcoa or any Subsidiary or Affiliate to terminate the employment of any person or to take any personnel action affecting such person without regard to the effect which such action might have upon such person or his or her Beneficiaries as a prospective recipient of benefits under the Plan.

(b) Military Service. Notwithstanding any provision of this Plan to the contrary, contributions, benefits and service credit with respect to qualified military service will be provided in accordance with Section 414(u) of the Internal Revenue Code.

SECTION 16. MANAGEMENT OF FUNDS

(a) General. Savings, Participating Employer Contributions, Negotiated Deferral Contributions, Restricted Discretionary Contributions, and Employer Retirement Income Contributions paid to the Trustee are invested as provided in the Plan.

(b) Trustees and Investment Managers. The Board or its designee has the responsibility to appoint, review the performance of, and remove where deemed appropriate, one or more Trustees, and one or more investment managers, each of which is a bank, insurance company or other investment adviser qualified under Section 3(38) of ERISA. The duties of each Trustee and manager, to the extent not set forth in the Plan, are set forth in a trust agreement or other written documents approved by the Board or its designee. Except as otherwise provided in such documents or in the Plan, each such investment manager has sole investment control and management responsibility with respect to those assets of the Plan for which it is designated the investment manager. The Board may delegate its authority to appoint an investment manager, to remove an investment manager, to approve and direct the execution by the proper officer or officers of

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

29


Alcoa of amendments to agreements with any investment manager, and to review the performance of any such managers. Such delegation also includes the authority to approve written documents setting forth the duties of any manager and to direct the execution of investment management agreements by the proper officer or officers of Alcoa. No Trustee has any investment responsibility for any assets which are subject to the investment control of another investment manager, and as to such assets it only has custodial duties if it is the custodian.

(c) Designation of Investment Strategy. The Board may from time to time designate, as to part or all of the assets of the Plan, that a separate fund or funds be established. Except as otherwise provided in the Plan, as to each such separate fund the Board or its designee may specify the investment strategy to be employed and the investment manager is thereupon relieved of responsibility for assuring that the specified investment strategy creates suitable diversification of the overall assets of the Plan, provided that such investment manager has followed such specifications.

(d) (1) Acquisition of Fixed Income Investments by the Trustee. The Trustee will enter into investment arrangements with insurance companies, banks or money managers, as directed by an investment manager duly appointed by the Board or its designee for the Fixed Income Fund. The Trustee will invest all Savings and other amounts to be invested in the Fixed Income Fund in accordance with such directions.

(2) Accounting for Participant’s Accounts. Participants’ investments in the Fixed Income Fund are accounted for on a unit basis. The Trustee allocates to the accounts of each Participant such units in the Fixed Income Fund as may be acquired with funds (if any) in such Participant’s accounts to be invested therein. Such allocations will be made in a uniform manner as determined by the Benefits Management Committee. Transfers and withdrawals are valued based on the Current Market Value per unit on the Effective Date of the transfer or withdrawal.

(e) (1) Acquisition of Company Stock by Trustee. The Savings, Participating Employer Contributions, Negotiated Deferral Contributions, Restricted Discretionary Contributions, and Employer Retirement Income Contributions to be invested in the Alcoa Stock Fund are used by the Trustee to purchase from time to time shares of Company Stock (i) from Alcoa, at the Current Market Value thereof, or (ii) to the extent Alcoa does make shares available for purchase by the Trustee for such purpose, on the open market unless Alcoa otherwise directs, or (iii) by the exercise of warrants or rights as provided in this Section. The Trustee, to the extent reasonable, invests any cash held in the fund in cash equivalents (including commercial paper). The Trustee also holds for the purpose of allocation to the accounts of individual Participants as hereinafter provided (i) shares of such stock which the Trustee has acquired upon withdrawal by a Participant, (ii) shares of such stock which the Trustee has acquired pursuant to Participants’ elections to transfer investments under the provisions of Section 9 and (iii) shares of such stock

forfeited under the provisions of Section 11. All shares of such stock purchased by the Trustee are carried in the accounts of the Trustee at the actual cost thereof, including any taxes, commissions, etc. which are not paid by the Participating Employer, incident to the purchase except that shares acquired upon the exercise of warrants or rights are carried at the Current Market Value of such shares on the date of such exercise. Shares of such stock forfeited under the provisions of Section 11 are deemed to have been purchased by the Trustee on the Effective Date of the withdrawal which resulted in such forfeiture, at the Current Market Value on such date.

(2) Allocation of Stock to Participants’ Accounts. Participants’ investments in the Alcoa Stock Fund are accounted for on a unit basis. The Trustee allocates to the accounts of each Participant such units in the Alcoa Stock Fund as may be acquired with funds (if any) in such Participants’ accounts to be invested therein. Such allocations are made in a uniform manner as determined by the Benefits Management Committee. Transfers and withdrawals are valued based on the Current Market Value per unit on the Effective Date of the transfer or withdrawal.

(3) Allocation of Dividends to Participants’ Accounts. In valuing the units, dividends are accounted for on the date the Board declares the dividend. Once received, dividends are invested in the Alcoa Stock Fund. A Participant may elect to receive an annual distribution of the dividends posted to their account during the Plan Year. Such election must be made prior to the last dividend record date in the Plan Year, and distribution will be made as soon as administratively practical following the date the final dividends are posted to the Participant’s account. Distribution will be paid in a lump sum from the Alcoa Stock Fund. To the extent the Participant’s account balance in the Alcoa Stock Fund is insufficient to pay the dividends, the balance of the distribution will be paid pro-rata from the Participant’s other Core Fund investments.

(4) Warrants & Purchase Rights. A Participant has no right of request, direction or demand upon the Trustee to exercise in his or her behalf warrants or rights to purchase shares of common stock or other securities of Alcoa, except as otherwise determined by the Board. The Trustee, in its discretion, may exercise or sell any warrants or rights to purchase shares of Company Stock appertaining to shares of such stock held by the Trustee, and may sell any warrants or rights to purchase other securities of Alcoa appertaining to shares of such stock held by the Trustee.

(5) Stock Splits & Dividends. Shares of Company Stock received by the Trustee by reason of a stock split or stock dividend become part of the Alcoa Stock Fund.

(6) Voting. The Trustee exercises its voting rights in accordance with written directions of each Participant with respect to at least the number of whole shares of Company Stock held by it in the Participants’ accounts on the record date for voting, other

31


than shares of Company Stock held by it in the Participants’ accounts which have been forfeited or become forfeitable (without removal of the forfeiture conditions) pursuant to Section 11 prior to such record date for voting. With respect to all other shares of Company Stock held by the Trustee on the record date for voting (the “Other Shares”), including but not limited to, (i) fractional shares in the Participants’ accounts (if they are not subject to direct voting), (ii) shares for which it has not received written directions from any Participant, (iii) any shares which have not yet been allocated to Participants’ accounts, and (iv) any shares held by it in Participants’ accounts which have been forfeited or became forfeitable (without removal of the forfeiture condition) pursuant to Section 11 prior to such record date for voting, the Trustee exercises its voting rights in the same proportion (for, against, abstain and so on) on each matter as it exercises its voting rights with respect to shares of Company Stock for which voting directions were received from all participants in all plans which participate in the Alcoa Stock Fund.

(f) (1) Acquisition of Other Investments by Trustee. Alcoa has and in the future will enter into investment arrangements with various investment managers. Any such arrangements must be approved by the Benefits Management Committee. Expenses incurred in connection with the purchase or sale of securities by the investment manager are paid from the applicable Investment Fund.

(2) Accounting for Participant’s Accounts. Effective January 1, 2011, Participants’ investments in the Core Funds are accounted for on a unit basis. The Trustee allocates to the accounts of each Participant such units in each of the Core Funds as may be acquired with funds (if any) in such Participant’s accounts to be invested therein. Such allocations will be made in a uniform manner as determined by the Benefits Management Committee. Transfers and withdrawals are valued based on the Current Market Value per unit on the Effective Date of the transfer or withdrawal.

(g) Transition Provision. Pending investment under an arrangement established pursuant to this Section, and pending distribution to Participants following withdrawal from such an arrangement, cash is invested by the Trustee in short-term fixed income securities or cash equivalents (including commercial paper) and the value of such securities or cash equivalents is allocated to the accounts of Participants in an equitable manner determined by the Benefits Management Committee.

(h) Brokerage Account. Participant’s have the right to invest and personally manage investments outside of the Core Funds by investing through the Brokerage Account offered by a broker selected by the Plan (“Broker”). Investment options through the Brokerage Account are mutual funds (other than those already available as Core Funds), any taxable equity or fixed income security publicly traded in a U.S. security market (including American Depository Receipts), and money market funds. Pre-Tax Savings, After-Tax Savings, Rollover Contributions, Participating Employer Contributions, Negotiated Deferral Contributions, Restricted Discretionary Contributions, and Employer

Retirement Income Contributions that are subject to transfer as provided in Section 9, may not be directly invested in the Brokerage Account, nor may withdrawals, distributions or loans be made directly from the Brokerage Account. Such transactions must be processed through the Core Funds.

(1) Restrictions of Trading in the Brokerage Account. Certain restrictions apply to investment vehicles that may be available through the Brokerage Account: Specifically, the following investments are not available through the Brokerage Account: Alcoa company stock (common or preferred) and bonds; funds currently available in the Core Funds; tax-free funds; securities of publicly traded limited partnerships; options contracts; purchase on short sales, futures, precious metals, and currencies; real estate (other than funds); annuities; life insurance policies; collectibles; commodities; foreign stocks (not American Depository Receipt); and margin trading and trade-away trades that are placed by another broker and settle with the Broker.

(2) Trading within the Brokerage Account. Investment purchases in the Brokerage Account may be made after such amounts are transferred from the Participant’s Core Fund accounts. Transfers from Core Funds may be made as provided in Section 9. Transferred funds will be held in the Broker’s money market fund until the Participant’s buy orders are received by the Broker. Trades may be subject to initial and subsequent investment minimums required by a mutual fund.

Transfers are made out of the Brokerage Account and into the Core Funds from the Schwab money market fund. If there are insufficient funds to make the requested transfer, the participant must submit a sell order with Schwab. The proceeds of securities sold will be invested automatically in the Broker’s money market fund and will be subsequently transferred out of the Brokerage Account to the Core Funds as directed by the Participant.

(3) Expenses Incurred by Trading and Voting. The Broker’s standard commission schedule will be deducted from the Brokerage Account t of the Participant who initiates the trades, and any other fees and expenses incurred through the Brokerage Account will be paid directly by the Participant.

The Broker will execute proxies for any securities held in the Brokerage Account in accordance with written directions of any Participant.

(a) Rights Reserved. Alcoa reserves the right (subject to the terms of the applicable Bargaining Agreement), by action of the Board or the Benefits Management Committee taken in accordance with the Board’s or Benefits Management Committee’s operating procedures, (1) to amend, modify, suspend or terminate the Plan or to suspend or completely discontinue contributions to the Plan, and (2) to terminate the Participation in the Plan of any Participating Employer or any designated group of Eligible Employees employed either within or outside the U.S. Any Participating Employer may terminate its participation in the Plan or suspend or discontinue its contributions under the Plan at any time upon 30 days prior written notice to the Plan Administrator. Such 30 day notice requirement may be waived by the Benefits Management Committee. No such amendment or other action relating to the Plan may reduce the amounts then credited to any Participant’s account, or provide or have the effect of providing that the securities and funds held in trust for the Plan or the income thereof may be used for or devoted to purposes other than the exclusive benefit of Participants and their Beneficiaries and for the payment of expenses of the Plan.

(b) Termination Results in Nonforfeitability. Prior to January 1, 2011, upon termination or partial termination of the Plan, or complete discontinuance of contributions to the Plan, the Current Market Value of all Participating Employer Contributions, Negotiated Deferral Contributions, Restricted Discretionary Contributions, and Employer Retirement Income Contributions credited to the accounts of all Participants at the time of any such termination or complete discontinuance, or of Participants affected thereby at the time of any such partial termination, will thereupon become nonforfeitable. Alcoa determines whether assets are automatically distributed based upon the Code when they so become nonforfeitable.

(c) Sale of Assets, etc. In the event any assets of any business of any Participating Employer are transferred to another entity by sale, merger, consolidation or otherwise, and the entity to which said assets are transferred has in effect, or thereupon establishes, a tax-qualified plan and related trust for the exclusive benefit of employees which qualify under the applicable provisions of the Code, all assets under the Plan, held in the accounts of Participants who continue in the employment of the transferee entity, may be transferred and paid, for their respective accounts, to the trust for the tax-qualified plan of said transferee entity, provided that any such transfer of investments will be effected in such manner as to preclude, for federal income tax purposes, a termination of the Plan or the constructive receipt of benefits thereunder with respect to said Participants.

 

  (d) Transfer of Plan Assets.

(1) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of any merger or consolidation of the Plan with, or a transfer of any of the assets and liabilities of the Plan to, any other plan, each affected Participant must (as if such plan were terminated immediately after such merger, consolidation or transfer) be entitled to a benefit under such other plan which is equal to or greater than the benefit he or she would have been entitled to receive under the Plan immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or transfer (as if the Plan had then terminated). In the event that assets are transferred to this Plan from any other plan sponsored by Alcoa or any Subsidiary or Affiliate, each Participant who has assets transferred from such plan or plans will be entitled to a benefit under this Plan which is equal to or greater than the benefit he or she had under such other plan. Any protected optional form of benefits provided under said plan will be maintained under this Plan. These provisions do not constitute a guaranty against investment losses.

(2) In the event a participant in a plan named below (“Alcoa Savings Plans”) becomes an Eligible Employee under this Plan, all of the participant’s accounts in the applicable Alcoa Savings Plan will be transferred to analogous accounts in this Plan as soon as reasonably practical after the Plan Administrator or Designee receives notice.

(a) Designation of Beneficiary. Subject to such administrative regulations as may be adopted from time to time, the Beneficiary with respect to all of the assets in the accounts of a Participant will be the Participant’s spouse if then living, or if not, the Participant’s estate.

become the Beneficiary of said assets until such time as the Participant, with his or her spouse’s written notarized consent, designates in writing another Beneficiary or Beneficiaries.

In the event a Participant certifies that he or she does not have a spouse, a Beneficiary or Beneficiaries with respect to all or part of the assets in the accounts of the Participant may be designated or revoked by the sole action of the Participant.

If there is no designated Beneficiary, or if no Beneficiary is living at the time of the Participant’s death, the Beneficiary is the Participant’s spouse if then living, or if not, the Participant’s estate.

Written designations, spousal consents and revocations are made on a form or forms approved by the Plan Administrator. Any such written designation, consent or revocation become effective on the calendar day on which such designation, consent or revocation is Properly Received.

Any payment of a benefit under the Plan in accordance with the provisions of this Section is a complete discharge of any liability for the payment of such benefit under the Plan.

(a) prospectively modify or revoke his or her election to have Savings, Participating Employer Contributions, Negotiated Deferral Contributions, and Restricted Discretionary Contributions made on his or her behalf,

(b) distribute to him or her the amount by which the Pre-Tax Savings made on his or her behalf for any Year exceeds the limitation of Paragraph (1)(a) above for that year plus the amount of any income allocable to such excess (but not more than his Pre-Tax Savings account balance) by the April 15 next following the end of that Plan Year;

(c) distribute to him or her the amount by which the Pre-Tax Savings made on his or her behalf for any Plan Year exceeds the limitations of Paragraph (1)(b) above for that year (as determined in accordance with Section 401(k)(8)(B) of the Code) plus the amount of any income allocable to such excess (but not more than his Pre-Tax Savings account balance) by the end of the Plan Year following the Plan Year for which the amounts were contributed; and

41


(d) make appropriate adjustments to his or her Pre-Tax Savings account to reflect such distributions.

3. Such modification or revocation described in 2. above is made only if necessary under one of the following circumstances:

(a) to ensure that the discrimination tests of Section 401(k) of the Code governing permissible levels of Pre-Tax Savings contributions for both the ESOP and non-ESOP portions of the Plan are met for such Plan Year, or to ensure that one of the following Average Actual Deferral Percentage tests are met for both the ESOP and non-ESOP portions of the Plan for such Plan Year;

(b) to ensure that a Participant’s annual additions for any calendar year will not exceed the limitations of Appendix B; or

(c) to ensure deductibility of the Employer’s entire contribution to the Plan for federal income tax purposes.

4. Definitions. For purposes of this Appendix A, the following terms are defined as follows:

(a) “Actual Deferral Percentage” means the ratio, expressed as a percentage calculated to the nearest one-hundredth of one percent, of the amount of Pre-Tax Savings on behalf of an Eligible Employee for a Plan Year to the Eligible Employee’s Compensation for the Plan Year, whether or not the employee was a Participant for the entire Plan Year. A Highly Compensated Employee’s Savings include such savings for the Plan Year which is in excess of the limitations set forth in Section 415(c)(1) of the Code (“Excess Pre-Tax Savings”), but exclude Excess Pre-Tax Savings for Non Highly Compensated Employees. Any Eligible Employee who does not elect to make Pre-Tax Savings and who does not receive Qualified Matching Contributions for a Plan Year will have zero Actual Deferral Percentage for the Plan Year.

(b) “Average Actual Deferral Percentage” means, for the group of Eligible Employees, covered under a Bargaining Agreement, who are Highly Compensated Employees for a Plan Year or the group of Eligible Employees, covered under a Bargaining Agreement, who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year, the average of the Actual Deferral Percentages of all Eligible Employees in such group for the Plan Year.

(c) “Average Contribution Percentage” means, for the group of Eligible Employees, other than those covered under a Bargaining Agreement, who are Highly Compensated Employees for a Plan Year or the group of Eligible Employees, other than those covered under a Bargaining Agreement, who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year, the average of the Contribution Percentages of all Eligible Employees in such group for the Plan Year.

(d) “Contribution Percentage” means the ratio, expressed as a percentage calculated to the nearest one-hundredth of one percent, of the sum of Participating Employer Contributions and Negotiated Deferral Contributions (other than Qualified Matching Contributions treated as Elective Deferrals under paragraph 7 of this Appendix) and any After-Tax Savings on behalf of an Eligible Employee for a Plan Year to the Employee’s Compensation for the Plan Year, whether or not the employee was a Participant for the entire Plan Year. For these purposes, an Eligible Employee’s Contribution Percentage for any Plan Year is calculated by excluding any forfeitures of Excess Aggregate Contributions allocated to the Eligible Employee’s account for the Plan Year.

(e) “Compensation” means the total amount of compensation (within the meaning of Section 415(c)(3) of the Code, and subject to the limitation of Section 401(a)(17) of the Code) received by an employee from the Employer while an Eligible Employee under the Plan during the Plan Year. An Eligible Employee’s Compensation for a Plan Year includes all Pre-Tax Savings made to the plan for the Plan Year, and all other such employee savings made by the Employer for the Plan Year to any other plan on behalf of the employee that are not currently includible in the gross income of the employee under Sections 125, 132(f)(4), 402(a)(8), 402(h) or 403(b) of the Code, provided that Alcoa has elected to treat all such elective contributions as compensation with respect to all employees under all plans of the Participating Employer.

In applying the limitation of Section 401(a)(17) of the Code, effective January 1, 1997, the family aggregation rules under this Appendix no longer apply.

(f) “Eligible Employee” means, with respect to any Plan Year, any employee who is eligible to commence participation in the Plan under Section 1 of the Plan and to have Savings made to the Plan under Section 2 of the Plan for the Plan Year, regardless of whether any contributions are made to the Plan on behalf of the employee for the Plan Year.

(g) “Excess Contributions” means, with respect to any Plan Year, the excess of the aggregate amount of Pre-Tax Savings, including Qualified Matching Contributions treated as Elective Deferrals under paragraph 7 of this Appendix, actually made to the Plan on behalf of Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year over the maximum amount of such contributions permitted under paragraph 5 of this Appendix.

(h) “Excess Aggregate Contributions” means, with respect to any Plan Year, the excess of the aggregate amount of Participating Employer Contributions and any After-Tax Savings actually made to the Plan on behalf of Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year over the maximum amount of such contributions permitted under paragraph 9 of this Appendix.

(i) “Employer” means Alcoa Inc. and all other entities as required to be covered under Section 414(c) of the Code.

(j) “Family Member” means, with respect to any Eligible Employee, an individual described in Section 414(q)(6)(B) of the Code.

(k) “Highly Compensated Employee” includes, for any Plan Year, the following Employees:

(i) A Highly Compensated Active Employee includes any employee (other than employees who are non-resident aliens and receive no earned income from sources within the U.S.) who performs service for the Employer during the Determination Year and who during the Look-Back Year:

(1) was a 5 % owner (within the meaning pursuant to Section 416(i)(1) of the Code) at any time during the year or the preceding year, or

(2) for the preceding year received Compensation from the Employer in excess of $80,000 (as adjusted pursuant to Section 415(d) of the Code) for such year.

(ii) A Highly Compensated Former Employee means:

(1) any employee who was a Highly Compensated Employee when the employee separated from service, or

(2) any employee who was a Highly Compensated Employee at any time after attaining the age 55.

(l) “Non-Highly Compensated Employee” means, for any Plan Year, an employee who is not a Highly Compensated Employee.

(m) “Qualified Matching Contributions” means any Participating Employer Contributions to this Plan on behalf of Eligible Employees, provided that amounts attributable to such contributions are not distributable merely on account of the Employee’s hardship and are immediately vested.

5. Average Actual Deferral Percentage Test. For each Plan Year, the Plan must satisfy one of the following Average Actual Deferral Percentage tests with respect to Pre-Tax Savings, and Qualified Matching Contributions treated as Pre-Tax Savings under paragraph 7 of this Appendix, made to both the ESOP and non-ESOP portions of the Plan for the Plan Year:

(a) the Average Actual Deferral Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year will not exceed the Average Actual Deferral Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year multiplied by 1.25; or

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

44


(b) the Average Actual Deferral Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year will not exceed the Average Actual Deferral Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year multiplied by two, provided that the Average Actual Deferral Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year does not exceed the Average Actual Deferral Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees by more than two percentage points.

(c) The Average Actual Deferral Percentage Test for all contributions to the ESOP portion of the Plan will be computed separately under this Section.

 

6. Special Rules.

(a) Aggregation of Family Members. Effective January 1, 1997, aggregation of Family Members for purposes of determining the Actual Deferral Percentage will no longer apply.

(b) Aggregation of Plans. In the event that this Plan satisfies the requirements of Section 401(a)(4), 401(k) or 410(b) of the Code only if aggregated with one or more other plans, or if one or more other plans satisfy the requirements of such sections of the Code only if aggregated with this Plan, then the provisions stated herein will be applied by determining the Actual Deferral Percentages of Employees as if all such plans (excluding other ESOPs) were a single plan. For plan years beginning after December 31, 1989, plans may be aggregated in order to satisfy Section 401(k) of the Code only if they have the same plan year. Notwithstanding the foregoing, certain plans will be treated as separate if mandatorily disaggregated under regulations under Section 401(k) of the Code.

(c) Effective as of January 1, 2002, in the event the Plan does not pass the ADP test, the test will be disaggregated by removing from the test all participants who have not attained age 21 and completed one eligibility year within 6 months of the last day of the plan year.

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

45


(d) Effective with plan years after January 1, 2006, all ESOP portions of the Savings Plan shall be aggregated for ADP with the Non-ESOP portions of the Savings Plan.

7. Treatment of Qualified Matching Contributions. If any Qualified Matching Contributions are made on behalf of Eligible Employees for a Plan Year, Alcoa may elect, in accordance with the regulations of the Secretary of Treasury under Section 401(k) of the Code, to treat all or a portion of such Qualified Matching Contributions as Pre-Tax Savings for purposes of calculating the Actual Deferral Percentages of Eligible Employees for the Plan Year. Any such Qualified Matching Contributions for a Plan Year must be made no later than the end of the 12 month period immediately following the close of the Plan Year.

 

8. Correction of Excess Contributions.

(a) General Rule. If the Plan does not satisfy one of the Average Actual Deferral Percentage tests of paragraph 5 of this Appendix as of the end of a Plan Year, the Excess Contributions for the Plan Year will be corrected if the Excess Contributions for the Plan Year are timely recharacterized as employee After-Tax Savings contributions in accordance with subsection (c) below or timely distributed to Highly Compensated Employees in accordance with subsection (d) below.

(b) Allocation of Excess Contributions. Effective for Plan Years beginning after December 31, 1996, in the event the nondiscrimination requirements of paragraph 5 of this Appendix are not satisfied for a Plan Year, the “deferral percentage leveling method” described in the preceding paragraph is performed as a first step in order to determine the total dollar amount of Excess Contribution to be distributed: a calculation is made to determine the dollar amount of Elective Deferrals necessary to reduce the deferral percentage of the Highly Compensated Employee with the highest deferral percentage to be equal to the deferral percentage of the Highly Compensated Employee with the next highest deferral percentage, and where necessary, calculations are made to determine the dollar amounts of reductions of the deferral percentage of subsequent Highly Compensated Employees that may be required in order to satisfy the nondiscrimination requirements in paragraph 5 of this Appendix. The total dollar amount of Excess Contribution that must be distributed for the Plan Year is the sum of the dollar amounts so calculated for each Highly Compensated Employee whose deferral percentage is so reduced.

Distribution of the total amount of Excess Contribution determined in the paragraph above is made using the “dollar leveling method.” Excess Contributions of the Highly Compensated Employee with the largest dollar amount of contributions for the Plan Year shall be distributed to the extent necessary to cause that Highly Compensated Employee’s dollar amount of Excess Contributions to equal the dollar amount of Excess Contributions of the Highest Compensated Employee with the next highest dollar amount of Excess Contributions for the Plan Year. If the total amount distributed is less than the

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

46


amount of total Excess Contribution, then both Highly Compensated Employees’ amounts are reduced to the same dollar level of the Highly Compensated Employee electing the third highest dollar amount and the dollar leveling process is repeated until the total dollar amount that should be reduced as calculated in the above paragraph is distributed. However, if reduction of a lesser amount of contributions would equal the total dollar amount of Excess Contributions that must be distributed for the Plan Year, the lesser amount is distributed.

A participant who has had his contributions reduced in accordance with this subparagraph shall have the amount of such reduction paid to him in cash as soon as practicable, subject to applicable payroll taxes. The amount of the Excess Contributions to be distributed shall be reduced by excess deferrals under 402(g) previously distributed for the Plan Year. The distributions of Excess Contributions shall include the income allocable thereto, including both the income allocable for the Plan Year for which the Contributions were made and the income for the period between the end of that Plan Year and the date as of which the distribution is made. Effective January 1, 2008, the distribution of Excess Contributions shall include the income or loss allocable only for the Plan Year of the Excess Contributions, and will not include the income or loss for the period between the end of the Plan Year and the date distribution is made. In addition, any Company Matching Contributions associated with the Excess Contribution shall be treated as forfeiture and used to reduce the Employer’s contribution under Section 3 of the Plan.

(c) Recharacterization of Excess Contributions. Any recharacterization of Excess Contributions as employee After-Tax Savings will be accomplished by the Plan Administrator in the manner provided in subsection (b) above within 2 1/2 months after the close of the Plan Year, providing such notices and following such procedures as required by regulations of the Secretary of Treasury, and will be deemed to occur no earlier than the date on which the last Highly Compensated Employee is informed in writing of the amount of his or her recharacterized Excess Contributions and the consequences thereof. Any Excess Contributions that are recharacterized as employee after-tax contributions for a Plan Year will, in combination with other Participating Employer Contributions to the Plan for the Plan Year, satisfy the Average Contribution Percentage tests of paragraph 9 of this Appendix for the Plan Year. Any recharacterized Excess Contributions remain nonforfeitable under the Plan and are subject to the same distribution requirements as Pre-Tax Savings. Recharacterized Excess Contributions are taxable to the Highly Compensated Employee for the year in which the Highly Compensated Employee could have originally elected to receive the Excess Contributions amount in cash.

(d) Distribution of Excess Contributions. If any Excess Contributions allocated to Highly Compensated Employees for a Plan Year are not corrected by recharacterization under (c) above, then such Excess Contributions, plus any income and minus any loss allocable thereto, will be distributed to Highly Compensated Employees no later than 12 months following the close of the Plan Year.

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

47


(e) Income or Loss Allocable to Excess Contributions. The income or loss allocable to the Excess Contributions referred to in subsection (d) above include the allocable income or loss for the Plan Year of the Excess Contributions and the allocable income or loss for the period between the end of the Plan Year and the distribution of the Excess Contributions, calculated as follows:

The income or loss allocable for the Plan Year of the Excess Contributions is determined by multiplying the total investment income or loss (including dividends, interest, realized gains or losses, and unrealized appreciation or depreciation) allocable to the Participant’s Pre-Tax Savings and amounts treated as Pre-Tax Savings under paragraph 7 of this Appendix for the Plan Year by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Excess Contributions allocated to the Participant for the Plan Year, and the denominator of which is the total account balance attributable to the Participant’s Pre-Tax Savings and amounts treated as Pre-Tax Savings under paragraph 7 of this Appendix as of the end of the Plan Year, reduced by the investment gain (or increased by the investment loss) allocated to such total amount for the Plan Year.

Effective January 1, 2008, the income or loss allocable to the Excess Contributions referred to in subsection (d) above will include only the income or loss allocable for the Plan Year of the Excess Contributions, and not the income or loss for the period between the end of the Plan Year and the distribution of Excess Contributions.

(f) Coordination with Excess Pre-Tax Savings. The amount of any Excess Contributions to be recharacterized under subsection (c) above or distributed under subsection (d) above with respect to any Highly Compensated Employee for a Plan Year is reduced by any excess Pre-Tax Savings previously distributed to the Highly Compensated Employee for the employee’s taxable year ending with or within the Plan Year.

(g) Accounting for Excess Contributions. The amount of Excess Contributions allocated to a Highly Compensated Employee for a Plan Year that is recharacterized under subsection (c) above or distributed under subsection (d) above is attributed first to the Participant’s Pre-Tax Savings for the Plan Year and then, to the extent such Excess Contributions exceed the Participant’s Pre-Tax Savings for the Plan Year, attributed to amounts treated as Pre-Tax Savings under paragraph 4 of this Appendix in proportion to the amounts of such contributions on behalf of the Participant for the Plan Year.

9. Average Contribution Percentage Tests. For each Plan Year for which Participating Employer Contributions are made to the Plan (other than Qualified Matching Contributions treated as Pre-Tax Savings for the Plan Year under paragraph 7 of this Appendix) or any After-Tax Savings are made to the Plan (including any Excess Contributions recharacterized as After-Tax Savings for the Plan Year under paragraph 8(c) of this Appendix), both the ESOP and non-ESOP portions of the Plan will satisfy one of the following Average Contribution Percentage tests for the Plan Year:

(a) the Average Contribution Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year will not exceed the Average Contribution Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year multiplied by 1.25; or

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

48


(b) the Average Contribution Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year will not exceed the Average Contribution Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year multiplied by two, provided that the Average Contribution Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year does not exceed the Average Contribution Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees by more than two percentage points.

(c) the Average Contribution Percentage Test applies separately to the ESOP portion of the Plan.

 

10. Special Rules.

(a) Aggregation of Family Members. Effective January 1, 1997, aggregation of Family Members for purposes of determining the Contribution Percentage will no longer apply.

(b) Aggregation of Plans. In the event that this Plan satisfies the requirements of Section 401(a)(4), 401(m) or 410(b) of the Code only if aggregated with one or more other plans, or if one or more other plans satisfy the requirements of such sections of the Code only if aggregated with this Plan, then the provisions stated herein will be applied by determining the Contribution Percentages of Employees as if all such plans were a single plan. For plan years beginning after December 31, 1989, plans may be aggregated to satisfy Section 401(m) of the Code only if they have the same plan year. Notwithstanding the foregoing, certain plans will be treated as separate if mandatorily disaggregated under regulations under Section 401(k) of the Code.

(c) Effective as of January 1, 2002, in the event the Plan does not pass the ACP test, the test will be disaggregated by removing from the test all participants who have not attained age 21 and completed one eligibility year within 6 months of the last day of the plan year.

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

49


(d) Effective with plan years after January 1, 2006, all ESOP portions of the Savings Plan shall be aggregated for ACP with the Non-ESOP portions of the Savings Plan.

 

11. Treatment of Pre-Tax Savings as Participating Employer Contributions.

Alcoa may elect, in accordance with the regulations of the Secretary of Treasury under Section 401(m) of the Code, to treat all or a portion of the Pre-Tax Savings made on behalf of Eligible Employees for a Plan Year as Participating Employer Contributions for purposes of calculating the Contribution Percentages of Eligible Employees for the Plan Year. Any such Pre-Tax Savings for a Plan Year must be made no later than the end of the 12 month period immediately following the close of the Plan Year. Notwithstanding the preceding, Alcoa may elect to treat Pre-Tax Savings as Participating Employer Contributions for purposes of calculating Contribution Percentages only if one of the Average Actual Deferral Percentage Tests of paragraph 5 of this Appendix is satisfied before the Pre-Tax Savings are treated as Participating Employer Contribution for the Plan Year, and one of the Average Actual Deferral Percentage Tests of paragraph 5 of this Appendix continues to be satisfied for the Plan Year excluding the Pre-Tax Savings treated as Participating Employer Contributions for the Plan Year.

 

12. Correction of Excess Aggregate Contributions.

(a) General Rule. If the Plan does not satisfy one of the Average Contribution Percentages tests of paragraph 9 of this Appendix as of the end of a Plan Year, the Excess Aggregate Contributions for the Plan Year will be corrected by the Employer if the Excess Aggregate Contributions for the Plan Year are forfeited or timely distributed to Highly Compensated Employees in accordance with subsection (c) below.

(b) Allocation of Excess Aggregate Contributions. Effective as of January 1, 1997, in the event Excess Aggregate Contributions are made to the Plan for a Plan Year, the Contribution Percentage for the Highly Compensated Employee with the largest dollar amount of deferrals for the Plan Year will be reduced to minimum extent necessary either:

(i) to enable the Plan to satisfy one of the Average Contribution Percentage tests of paragraph 9 of this Appendix for the Plan Year; or

(ii) to cause the Highly Compensated employee’s Contribution Percentage to equal the next highest Contribution Percentage of any Highly Compensated Employee for the Plan Year.

This process is repeated until the Average Contribution Percentage for the group of Eligible Employees who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year is sufficiently reduced to enable the Plan to satisfy one of the Average Contribution

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

50


Percentage tests of paragraph 9 of this Appendix for the Plan Year. The amount of Excess Aggregate Contributions to be allocated to each Highly Compensated Employee for the Plan Year is equal the total After-Tax Savings and Participating Employer Contributions, including Pre-Tax Savings on behalf of the Highly Compensated Employee for the Plan Year minus the amount determined by multiplying the Highly Compensated Employee’s reduced Contribution Percentage (as determined above) by the employee’s Compensation for the Plan Year. Excess Aggregate Contributions of employees who are subject to the family aggregation rules of Section 414(q)(6) of the Code are allocated among the family members in proportion to the Pre-Tax Savings and Matching Contributions (or amounts treated as Matching Contributions) of each family member that is combined to determine the combined Average Contribution Percentage.

(c) Forfeiture or Distribution of Excess Aggregate Contributions. Excess Aggregate Contributions, plus any income or minus any loss allocable thereto, must be forfeited to the extent attributable under subsection (f) below to Participating Employer Contributions that are not vested, and otherwise distributed to Highly Compensated Employees no later than 12 months following the close of the Plan Year.

(d) Income or Loss Allocable to Excess Aggregate Contributions. The income or loss allocable to the Excess Aggregate Contributions referred to in subsection (c) above include the allocable income or loss for the Plan Year of the Excess Aggregate Contributions and the allocable income or loss for the period between the end of the Plan Year and the distribution of the Excess Aggregate Contributions, calculated as follows:

(i) the income or loss allocable for the Plan Year of the Excess Aggregate Contributions is determined by multiplying the total investment income or loss (including dividends, interest, realized gains or losses, and unrealized appreciation or depreciation) allocable to the Participant’s Participating Employer Contributions, and amounts treated as Participating Employer Contributions under paragraph 11 of this Appendix for the Plan Year by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Excess Aggregate Contributions allocated to the Participant for the Plan Year, and the denominator of which is the total account balance attributable to the Participant’s Participating Employer Contributions and amounts treated as Participating Employer Contributions under paragraph 11 of this Appendix as of the end of the Plan Year, reduced by the investment gain (or increased by the investment loss) allocated to such total amount for the Plan Year;

(ii) the income or loss allocable to the period (if any) between the end of the Plan Year of the Excess Aggregate Contributions and the distribution of the Excess Aggregate Contributions by the Plan is determined by multiplying the total investment income or loss allocated to the Participant’s Participating Employer Contributions and amounts treated as Participating Employer Contributions under paragraph 11 of this Appendix for such period by a fraction determined under the

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

51


method described in (i) above. In the alternative, the income or loss allocable to the period between the end of the Plan Year of the Excess Aggregate Contributions and the distribution of the Excess Aggregate Contributions equals 10% of the income or loss allocable to the Participant’s Excess Aggregate Contributions for the Plan Year (as determined under (i) above multiplied by the number of calendar months that elapse between the end of the Plan Year and the date of distribution. For these purposes, a distribution occurring on or before the fifteenth day of a calendar month is treated as having been made on the last day of the preceding calendar month, and a distribution occurring after the fifteenth date of a calendar month is treated as having been made on the first day of the following calendar month.

Effective January 1, 2008, the income or loss will include only the income or loss allocable for the Plan Year of the Excess Aggregate Contributions, and not the income or loss for the period between the end of the Plan Year and the distribution of Excess Aggregate Contributions.

(e) Coordination with Excess Contributions. The determination of the amount of Excess Aggregate Contributions for a Plan Year is made after the determination of the amount of any Excess Contributions for the Plan Year.

(f) Accounting for Excess Aggregate Contributions. The amount of Excess Aggregate Contributions allocated to a Highly Compensated Employee for a Plan Year is attributed to Participating Employer Contributions and any amounts treated as Participating Employer Contributions in proportion to the amounts of such contributions on behalf of the Participant for the Plan Year.

 

13. Multiple Use of Alternative Limitation.

(a) In General. This paragraph 13 of this Appendix applies for any Plan Year if:

(i) any Eligible Employee who is a Highly Compensated Employee is eligible to participate in a plan maintained by the Employer (including this Plan) that is subject to the requirements of Section 401(m) of Code because such plan accepts matching contributions or employee contributions for the plan’s plan year beginning with or within the Plan Year;

(ii) this Plan does not pass the 1.25 Average Actual Deferral Percentage Test of paragraph 5(a) of this Appendix for the Plan Year, and the Employer’s plan that is subject to the requirements of Section 401(m) of the Code does not pass the 1.25 contribution percentage test of Section 401(m)(2)(A)(i) of the Code for the plan’s plan year beginning with or within the Plan Year; and

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

52


(iii) the sum of the Average Actual Deferral Percentage for all Eligible Employees who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year, and the average contribution percentage (as defined in Section 401(m)(3) of the Code) for all Highly Compensated Employees who are eligible to participate in the Employer’s plan that is subject to Section 401(m) of the Code for the plan’s plan year beginning with or within the Plan Year, exceeds the aggregate limit of subsection (b) below.

For purposes of this paragraph 13 of this Appendix, the Average Actual Deferral Percentage of Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year is determined after any corrective measures as described in paragraph 8 of this Appendix are undertaken for the Plan Year. The average contribution percentage for all Highly Compensated Employees under the Employer’s plan that is subject to Section 401(m) of the Code is determined after any corrective measures (including those described in paragraph 12 of this Appendix) are undertaken to satisfy the average contribution percentage tests of Section 401(m)(2) of the Code for the plan’s year beginning with or within the Plan Year.

(b) Aggregate Limit. For purposes of this paragraph 13 of this Appendix, the term “aggregate limit” means the sum of:

(i) 125 percent of the greater of (1) the Average Actual Deferral Percentage for Eligible Employees who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year or (2) the average contribution percentage (as defined in Section 401(m)(3) of the Code) for Non-Highly Compensated Employees who are eligible to participate in the Employer’s plan that is subject to Section 401(m) of the Code for the plan’s plan year beginning with or within the Plan Year; plus

(ii) two plus the lesser of (1) or (2) above, provided that in no event may this amount exceed 200 percent of the lesser of (1) or (2) above.

(c) Required Correction. In the event that the aggregate limit of subsection (b) is exceeded as of the end of any Plan Year, the Employer reduces the Average Actual Deferral Percentage of those Highly Compensated Employees who also participate in the Employer’s plan that is subject to Section 401(m) of the Code (beginning with such Highly Compensated Employees whose Actual Deferral Percentage is the highest) so that the aggregate limit is not exceeded. The amount by which each such Highly Compensated Employee’s Average Actual Deferral Percentage is reduced is determined in accordance with the procedures of paragraph 8 of this Appendix, by treating the excess amount of Excess Contributions.

The multiple use test described in this paragraph 13 of this Appendix and in Treasury Regulation Section 1.401(m)-2 will not apply for Plan Years beginning on or after January 1, 2002.

14. Recordkeeping Requirements.

(a) Average Actual Deferral Percentage Tests. The Employer maintains records sufficient to demonstrate satisfaction of the Average Actual Deferral Percentage tests of paragraph 5 of this Appendix for each Plan Year, and the extent to which any Qualified Matching Contributions are treated as Pre-Tax Savings under paragraph 7 of this Appendix for purposes of such tests. The determination of Eligible Employees’ Actual Deferral Percentages, and the disposition of all Pre-Tax Savings (and any Qualified Matching Contributions treated as Pre-Tax Savings under paragraph 7 of this Appendix) on behalf of Participants, must satisfy such other requirements as may be prescribed by the Secretary of Treasury.

(b) Average Contribution Percentage Tests. The Employer maintains records sufficient to demonstrate satisfaction of the Average Contribution Percentage tests of paragraph 9 of this Appendix for each Plan Year, and the extent to which any Pre-Tax Savings are treated as Participating Employer Contributions under paragraph 11 of this Appendix for purposes of such tests. The determination of Eligible Employees’ Average Contribution Percentages, and the disposition of all Participating Employer Contributions (and any Pre-Tax Savings) on behalf of Participants, must satisfy such other requirements as may be prescribed by the Secretary of Treasury.

15. Distribution of Excess Elective Deferrals. Excess Elective Deferrals means Pre-Tax Savings that is includible in a Participant’s gross income under Section 402(g) of the Code to the extent it exceeds the dollar limitation. Excess Elective Deferrals are treated as annual additions under the Plan unless such amounts are distributed no later than the first April 15th following the close of the Participant’s taxable year. Excess Elective Deferrals are adjusted for any income or loss up to the date of distribution as calculated under paragraph 8(e) and 12(d) of this Appendix. A Participant is deemed to notify the Plan Administrator of Excess Elective Deferrals that arise by taking into account only those Elective Deferrals made to this Plan and any other plans of the Employer. A Participant may assign any Excess Elective Deferrals made by the Participant to any other plans other than those of the Employer by notifying the Plan Administrator on or before January 15th of the following year.

APPENDIX B

CODE SECTION 415 LIMITATIONS

The limitations imposed by Section 415 of the Code are hereby incorporated by reference. If there is any discrepancy between the provisions of this Plan and the provisions of Code Section 415 and the regulations thereunder, the discrepancy will be resolved in such a way to give full effect to the provisions of Code Section 415.

The maximum annual additions provided by the Plan will be exactly equal to the maximum amounts permitted under Code Section 415 and the regulations thereunder. In the event a Participant’s annual additions for any Plan Year would exceed the maximum amount of annual additions permitted under Code Section 415, such Participant’s Savings are automatically reduced, in whole or in part, by the amount required to eliminate such excess.

Effective for Plan Years beginning on or after January 1, 2008, for purposes of applying the limitations described in this Appendix B, compensation will include any differential pay received by a Participant absent for military leave and any payment earned prior to a Participant’s separation from employment that is paid within a period ending on the later of i) two and one-half months following the date the Participant separated from employment, or ii) the end of the Plan Year in which the date the Participant separated from employment (“Post-Separation Compensation”). Post-Separation Compensation will include any payments for vacation, sickness, or leave of absence that otherwise would have been included as compensation had the Participant remained employed.

APPENDIX C

TOP HEAVY RULES

(a) This Plan constitutes a “Top Heavy Plan” for a Plan Year if as of the last day of the preceding Plan Year the present value of the cumulative account balances under the Plan for Participants who are Key Employees exceed 60 percent of the present value of the aggregate of all account balances for all Participants in the Plan. A non-Key Employee means any Participant or former Participant who is not a Key Employee.

(b) This Plan constitutes a Top Heavy Plan for a Plan Year if the employee benefit plans which make up the group of plans of which this Plan is considered a part are such that, when aggregated, the sum of (1) the present value of the account balances of Key Employees under all defined contribution plans in the group, and (2) the present value of the cumulative accrued benefits of Key Employees under all defined benefit plans in the group exceed 60 percent of the sum of such amounts for all employees who participate in the plans in the said group.

(1) The group of plans in which this Plan is considered a part includes (A) all plans of Alcoa, the Subsidiaries and Affiliates which enable the particular plans in which a Key Employee participates to meet the qualification requirement of Section 401(a)(4) of the Code or Section 410 of the Code; and, (B) all plans which Alcoa, in its discretion, decides to include, provided that the inclusion of such plan or plans would not prevent the group of plans from meeting the qualification requirements of Sections 401(a)(4) and 410 of the Code. The date upon which the account balances are valued for purposes of calculating the top heavy ratio to determine whether or not the Plan is Top Heavy for a particular Plan Year is the determination date, which is the last day of the preceding Plan Year, or in the case of the first plan year of any plan, the last day of such plan year.

(2) Effective for Plan Years beginning on or after January 1, 2002, the amounts of account balances of an employee as of the determination date are increased by the distributions made with respect to the employee under the plan and any plan aggregated with the plan under Section 416(g)(2) of the Code during the one-year period ending on the determination date. The preceding sentence also applies to distributions under a terminated plan which, had it not been terminated, would have been aggregated with the plan under Section 416(g)(2)(A)(i) of the Code. In the case of a distribution made for a reason other than separation from service, death, or disability, this provision is applied by substituting “five-year period” for “one-year period.”

(3) Effective for Plan Years beginning on or after January 1, 2002, the accounts of any individual who has not performed services for the employer during the one-year period ending on the determination date are not taken into account.

(c) The following provisions are applicable to Participants for any Plan Year with respect to which the Plan is Top Heavy:

(1) The minimum Participating Employer Contribution for a Participant who is a non-Key Employee and has not separated from service at the end of the Plan Year must not be less than three percent of his or her Eligible Compensation for the Top Heavy Plan Year. If said allocation is less than three percent of his or her Eligible Compensation, then said allocation is the largest percentage allocated to a Key Employee for the Top Heavy Plan Year. In the event the highest rate allocated to a Key Employee for the Top Heavy Plan Year is less than three percent, Pre-Tax amounts contributed to the Plan are included in determining contributions made on behalf of Key Employees. Compensation for determining a minimum benefit, a minimum contribution and for all other Top Heavy purposes is the Participant’s W-2 earnings for the calendar year that ends with the Plan Year.

Effective for Plan Years beginning on or after January 1, 2002, Participating Employer Contributions used to satisfy the minimum contribution requirements are treated as Participating Employer Contributions for purposes of the actual contribution percentage test and other requirements of Section 401(m) of the Code.

(2) With respect to benefits accruing during any Plan Year in which the Plan is Top Heavy, average compensation is limited to amounts not in excess of the amount permitted under Section 401(a)(17) of the Code. If the accrued benefit as of the end of the last Plan Year before the Plan became Top Heavy is greater than the accrued benefit determined by limiting compensation, that higher accrued benefit cannot be reduced.

(3) In the event the Plan is Top Heavy with respect to a Plan Year and ceases to be Top Heavy for a subsequent Plan Year the Participant’s account balance in any such subsequent Plan Year is not less than the Participant’s Pre-Tax Savings (subject to adjustment for earnings) computed as of the end of the most recent Plan Year for which the Plan was Top Heavy.

(d) Notwithstanding any of the above, if a non-Key Employee participates in this Plan and a defined benefit pension plan included in a required aggregation group which is top heavy, a minimum allocation of five percent of Section 415 compensation is provided under this Plan. The Plan will not be deemed Top Heavy if ninety percent is substituted for sixty percent in (b)(1) of this Appendix and Participating Employer provides additional contributions to the Plan on behalf of non-Key Employees who participate in both defined benefit and defined contribution plans maintained by a Participating Employer, in amounts at least equal to the amount set forth in Paragraph (c)(1) of this Appendix as modified by substituting “seven and one-half percent” for “three percent.” If the non-Key Employee does not participate in a defined benefit plan maintained by Alcoa, a Subsidiary or Affiliate, such employee will receive an additional contribution of four percent.

APPENDIX D

MINIMUM DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS.

Section 1. General Rules

1.1. Effective Date. The provisions of this Appendix D will apply for purposes of determining required minimum distributions for calendar years beginning with the 2003 calendar year.

1.2. Precedence. The requirements of this Appendix D will take precedence over any inconsistent provisions of the plan.

1.3. Requirements of Treasury Regulations Incorporated. All distributions required under this Appendix D will be determined and made in accordance with Section 401(a)(9) of the Code and Treasury regulations §§1.401)(a)(9)-2 through -9, which will override any inconsistent distribution provisions of the Plan. Distribution of any incidental death benefit requirements provided under the Plan will be a distribution for purposes of this Appendix D.

1.4. TEFRA Section 242(b)(2) Elections. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Appendix D, distributions may be made under a designation made before January 1, 1984, in accordance with section 242(b)(2) of the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA) and the provisions of the plan that relate to section 242(b)(2) of TEFRA.

Section 2. Time and Manner of Distribution.

2.1. Required Beginning Date. The participant’s entire interest will be distributed, or begin to be distributed, to the participant no later than the participant’s required beginning date.

2.2. Death of Participant Before Distributions Begin. If the participant dies before distributions begin and there is a designated beneficiary, the participant’s entire interest will be distributed to the designated beneficiary by December 31 of the calendar year containing the fifth anniversary of the participant’s death. If the participant’s surviving spouse is the participant’s sole designated beneficiary and the surviving spouse dies after the participant but before distributions to either the participant or the surviving spouse begin, this election will apply as if the surviving spouse were the participant. This election will apply to all distributions.

If there is no designated beneficiary as of September 30 of the year following the year of the participant’s death, the participant’s entire interest will be distributed by December 31 of the calendar year containing the fifth anniversary of the participant’s death.

2.3. Forms of Distribution. Unless the participant’s interest is distributed in the form of an annuity purchased from an insurance company or in a single sum on or before the required beginning date, as of the first distribution calendar year distributions will be made in accordance with sections 3 and 4 of this Appendix D. If the participant’s interest is distributed in the form of an annuity purchased from an insurance company, distributions thereunder will be made in accordance with the requirements of section 40l(a)(9) of the Code and the Treasury regulations.

Section 3. Required Minimum Distributions During Participant’s Lifetime.

3.1. Amount of Required Minimum Distribution For Each Distribution Calendar Year. During the participant’s lifetime, the minimum amount that will be distributed for each distribution calendar year is the lesser of:

(a) the quotient obtained by dividing the participant’s account balance by the distribution period in the Uniform Lifetime Table set forth in section 1.401(a)(9)-9 of the Treasury regulations, using the participant’s age as of the participant’s birthday in the distribution calendar year; or

(b) if the participant’s sole designated beneficiary for the distribution calendar year is the participant’s spouse, the quotient obtained by dividing the participant’s account balance by the number in the Joint and Last Survivor Table set forth in section 1.401(a)(9)-9 of the Treasury regulations, using the participant’s and spouse’s attained ages as of the participant’s and spouse’s birthdays in the distribution calendar year.

3.2. Lifetime Required Minimum Distributions Continue Through Year of Participant’s Death. Required minimum distributions will be determined under this section 3 beginning with the first distribution calendar year and up to and including the distribution calendar year that includes the participant’s date of death

Section 4. Required Minimum Distributions After Participant’s Death.

4.1. Death On or After Date Distributions Begin.

(a) Participant Survived by Designated Beneficiary. If the participant dies on or after the date distributions begin and there is a designated beneficiary, the minimum amount that will be distributed for each distribution calendar year after the year of the participant’s death is the quotient obtained by dividing the participant’s account balance by the longer of the remaining life expectancy of the participant or the remaining life expectancy of the participant’s designated beneficiary, determined as follows:

(1) The participant’s remaining life expectancy is calculated using the age of the participant in the year of death, reduced by one for each subsequent year.

 

Alcoa Savings Plan for Bargaining Employees

Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2010

 

59


(2) If the participant’s surviving spouse is the participant’s sole designated beneficiary, the remaining life expectancy of the surviving spouse is calculated for each distribution calendar year after the year of the participant’s death using the surviving spouse’s age as of the spouse’s birthday in that year. For distribution calendar years after the year of the surviving spouse’s death, the remaining life expectancy of the surviving spouse is calculated using the age of the surviving spouse as of the spouse’s birthday in the calendar year of the spouse’s death, reduced by one for each subsequent calendar year.

(3) If the participant’s surviving spouse is not the participant’s sole designated beneficiary, the designated beneficiary’s remaining life expectancy is calculated using the age of the beneficiary in the year following the year of the participant’s death, reduced by one for each subsequent year.

(b) No Designated Beneficiary. If the participant dies on or after the date distributions begin and there is no designated beneficiary as of September 30 of the year after the year of the participant’s death, the minimum amount that will be distributed for each distribution calendar year after the year of the participant’s death is the quotient obtained by dividing the participant’s account balance by the participant’s remaining life expectancy calculated using the age of the participant in the year of death, reduced by one for each subsequent year.

4.2. Death Before Date Distributions Begin.

(a) Participant Survived by Designated Beneficiary. If the participant dies before the date distributions begin and there is a designated beneficiary, the minimum amount that will be distributed for each distribution calendar year after the year of the participant’s death is the quotient obtained by dividing the participant’s account balance by the remaining life expectancy of the participant’s designated beneficiary, determined as provided in section 4.1.

(b) No Designated Beneficiary. If the participant dies before the date distributions begin and there is no designated beneficiary as of September 30 of the year following the year of the participant’s death, distribution of the participant’s entire interest will be completed by December 31 of the calendar year containing the fifth anniversary of the participant’s death.

(c) Death of Surviving Spouse Before Distributions to Surviving Spouse Are Required to Begin. If the participant dies before the date distributions begin, the participant’s surviving spouse is the participant’s sole designated beneficiary, and the surviving spouse dies before distributions are required to begin to the surviving spouse under section 2.2, this section 4.2 will apply as if the surviving spouse were the participant.

Section 5. Definitions.

5.1. Designated beneficiary. The individual who is designated as the beneficiary under Section 22 of the plan and is the designated beneficiary under section 40l(a)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code and section 1.401(a)(9)-1, Q&A-4, of the Treasury regulations.

5.2. Distribution calendar year. A calendar year for which a minimum distribution is required. For distributions beginning before the participant’s death, the first distribution calendar year is the calendar year immediately preceding the calendar year which contains the participant’s required beginning date. For distributions beginning after the participant’s death, the first distribution calendar year is the calendar year in which distributions are required to begin under section 2.2. The required minimum distribution for the participant’s first distribution calendar year will be made on or before the participant’s required beginning date. The required minimum distribution for other distribution calendar years, including the required minimum distribution for the distribution calendar year in which the participant’s required beginning date occurs, will be made on or before December 31 of that distribution calendar year.

5.3. Life expectancy. Life expectancy as computed by use of the Single Life Table in section 1.401(a)(9)-9 of the Treasury regulations.

5.4. Participant’s account balance. The account balance as of the last valuation date in the calendar year immediately preceding the distribution calendar year (valuation calendar year) increased by the amount of any contributions made and allocated or forfeitures allocated to the account balance as of dates in the valuation calendar year after the valuation date and decreased by distributions made in the valuation calendar year after the valuation date. The account balance for the valuation calendar year includes any amounts rolled over or transferred to the plan either in the valuation calendar year or in the distribution calendar year if distributed or transferred in the valuation calendar year.

5.5 Required beginning date. The date specified in Section 13(b) of the Plan.
