Annual Installment Method definition

Annual Installment Method means the method used to determine the amount of each payment due to a Participant who has elected to receive a benefit over a period of years in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Plan. The amount of each annual payment due to the Participant shall be calculated by multiplying the balance of the Participant’s benefit by a fraction, the numerator of which is one and the denominator of which is the remaining number of annual payments due to the Participant. The amount of the first annual payment shall be calculated as of the close of business on or around the Participant’s Benefit Distribution Date, and the amount of each subsequent annual payment shall be calculated on or around each anniversary of such Benefit Distribution Date. For purposes of this Plan, the right to receive a benefit payment in annual installments shall be treated as the entitlement to a single payment.

To determine the value of the Participant’s Account balance for calculating an installment payment, the Participant’s Account balance shall be valued as of the close of business on the last business day of the Plan Year preceding the Plan Year for which payment is to be made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, when determining the Account balance for calculating the first installment payment for a Participant who is a "specified employee" within the meaning of Code Section 409A subject to a payment delay pursuant to Section 5.3 or 5.6, the Participant’s Account balance shall be valued as of the close of business on the last business day of the calendar quarter preceding the date the first payment is scheduled to occur. Each annual installment shall be calculated by multiplying the Account balance determined above, as the case may be, by a fraction, the numerator of which is one, and the denominator of which is the remaining number of annual payments due to the Participant. For example, if a 5-year Annual Installment Method is specified, the first payment shall be 1/5 of the Account balance, valued as described herein. The following Plan Year, the payment shall be 1/4 of the Account balance, valued as described herein.
