Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Deferrable Amount shall not include (i) any amount that must be withheld from the Eligible Employee's wages for income or employment tax purposes or (ii) with respect to elections made during an Initial Enrollment Period, cash payments to an Eligible Employee under an annual incentive performance plan.
Designating an individual as eligible to participate in the Plan for a particular Plan Year or with respect to a particular Deferrable Amount shall not require the Deferral Authority to designate such individual for any subsequent Plan Year or with respect to any subsequent Deferrable Amounts.
The Enrollment Period shall end prior to the first day of the service year with respect to the applicable Deferrable Amount.
The Deferral Authority in its sole discretion shall designate those Employees or Directors who are to be eligible to participate in the Plan with respect to Deferrals for a particular Plan Year or with respect to a particular Deferrable Amount or Amounts.
The form shall indicate (i) the amount and sources of Deferrable Amount to be deferred; (ii) whether deferral of annual base cash compensation is to be at the same rate throughout the year, or at one rate for part of the year and at a second rate for the remainder of the year; and (iii) the portion of the deferral to be credited to the Participant's Interest Account and Stock Account respectively.
An Eligible Employee may elect to defer receipt of all or any portion of his or her Deferrable Amount to his or her Interest Account and/or Stock Account.
