ARTICLE 2

Life Insurance Policies

2.1 Policies. To provide the insurance benefits under the Plan, the Company has acquired the Policies. The Company is the owner of the Policies and shall continue to hold all incidents of ownership therein. However, the Company shall take such action as may be necessary to endorse to the Trust a portion of the death benefit under each Policy in the amount provided under Article 3.

2.2 Premiums. The Trust shall pay that portion of the premiums on each Policy equal to the Economic Benefit for the applicable calendar year, and the Company shall pay the balance of the scheduled premium payments specified in Exhibit A with respect to each Policy, on or before the due date thereof under the terms of the Policy. In the event that the Trust fails to make the required portion of any premium payment when such payment shall become due under the terms of the Policy, the Company shall impute the difference between the Economic Benefit for the applicable calendar year and any premium paid by the Trust for such year as compensation income to the Executive for such calendar year.

2.3 Policy Loans, Withdrawals, or Surrender. The Company shall have no right to obtain loans or make withdrawals from the Policies or to surrender or exchange the Policies, without the prior written consent of the Trustee. Neither the Trustee nor the Executive shall have any present or future interest in Policy cash values nor any right to obtain loans or withdrawals or to surrender the Policies at any time.

2.4 Dividends and Investment of Policy Assets. Policy dividends shall be reinvested in the Policies, and the Administrator shall make any and all decisions regarding administration of the Policies, including investment of assets within the Policies according to the terms and conditions of the Policies.

2.5 Assignment. The Trust may assign to one or more individuals or trustees all or any part of the Trust’s right, title, claim, interest, and benefit under the Plan provided that such assignment shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan.

ARTICLE 3

Life Insurance Benefits

3.1 Death Benefit. The right to benefits under this Plan shall continue, without regard to the employment status of the Executive until the later of the death of the Executive or the Spouse. Upon the later of the death of the Executive or the Spouse, a portion of the death benefit payable under each Policy equal to the greater of the Cumulative Premiums or net cash value of the Policy (excluding surrender charges or other similar charges or reductions) immediately prior to the applicable death shall be paid to the Company. The balance of the death benefit shall be paid to the Trust and the Administrator shall file the appropriate forms with each Insurance Company to endorse such applicable portion of the death benefit under each Policy to the Trust.

In the event of a termination of the Plan for any reason, the Trust shall have the right, but not the obligation, to purchase one or more of the Policies from the Company by notice to the Administrator within thirty (30) days of such termination of the Plan accompanied by good and valuable consideration in a form acceptable to the Administrator equal to the greater of the Cumulative Premiums or the net cash value of the applicable Policy (excluding surrender charges or other similar charges or reductions) as of the date of such Plan termination.

Administration/Claims Procedures

5.1 Administration. The Administrator shall have the discretion to interpret and administer the Plan, to make, amend and rescind such rules as it deems reasonably necessary for the proper administration of the Plan, to appoint agents and to make all other arrangements and determinations reasonably necessary or advisable for the administration of the Plan. No member of the Administrator shall be liable for any determination, decision, or action made in good faith with respect to the Plan. The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless the members of the Administrator from and against any and all liabilities, costs, and expenses incurred by such persons as a result of any act or omission, in connection with the performance of such persons’ duties, responsibilities, and obligations under the Plan, other than such liabilities, costs, and expenses as may result from the bad faith, willful misconduct, or criminal acts of such persons.

5.2 Notice of Right to Claim Benefits. The Administrator shall be the “named fiduciary” and shall notify the Trustee of the right to claim benefits under the Plan and the method and requirements for the filing of such claims. The benefit payments under the Plan shall be made by the Insurance Companies directly to the Trust in accordance with the endorsement and beneficiary designation filed under each Policy.

5.3 Claims Procedures. If the Trustee or another claimant believes that the Trust or claimant has been denied benefits or coverage to which it is entitled under the Plan, the claimant may file a written claim with the Administrator setting forth the nature of the benefit claimed, the amount thereof, and the basis for claiming entitlement to such benefit. The Administrator shall determine the validity of the claim and communicate a decision to the claimant promptly and, in any event, not later than ninety (90) days after receipt of the claim by the Administrator. The claim may be deemed by the claimant to have been denied in the event a decision is not furnished to the claimant within such ninety (90) day period. Every claim for benefits which is denied shall be denied by written notice setting forth in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant (i) the specific reason or reasons for the denial, (ii) specific reference to any provisions of the Plan (including any internal rules, guidelines, protocols, criteria, etc.) on which

the denial is based, (iii) description of any additional material or information that is necessary to process the claim, and (iv) an explanation of the procedure for further reviewing the denial of the claim and the claimant’s right to pursue legal action in the event of an adverse determination on review.

5.4 Review Procedures. Within sixty (60) days after the receipt of a denial on a claim, a claimant may file a written request for review of such denial. Such review shall be undertaken by the Board of Directors of the Company and shall be a full and fair review. The claimant shall have the right to review all pertinent documents. The Board of Directors shall issue a decision not later than sixty (60) days after the receipt of a request for review from a claimant. 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 with specific reference to any provisions of the Plan on which the decision is based and shall include an explanation of the claimant’s right to pursue legal action in the event of an adverse determination on review.
