payment of the 2006 annual cash incentive award, the 2004-2006 long-term cash incentive award and any 2006 salary earned but not paid in 2006 due to
Allstate's payroll cycle are not included in these tables because these amounts are payable to the named executives regardless of a change-in-control. A "0" indicates that
either there is no amount payable to the named executive or no amount payable to the named executive that is not made available to all salaried employees.
benefits would be payable if the named executive terminates his employment during the 13th-month after a change-in-control for any reason. In
addition, severance benefits would be payable if a named executive's employment is terminated either by Allstate without "cause" or by the executive for "good reason" during the
three-year period following a change-in-control event. For Messrs. Hale, Simonson, Sylla, and Wilson, if the change of control is not a merger of equals,
"good reason" is a material adverse change in the named executive's authority, duties, titles or offices. After a merger of equals, good reason arises only if Messrs. Hale's, Simonson's,
Sylla's, and Wilson's elected officer status is eliminated and their work location is no longer within 30 miles of their former location. The merger of equals does not modify the good reason
standard for Mr. Liddy.
amount reflects three times the named executive's base salary.
amount is three times the named executive's annual cash incentive award calculated at target.
amount reflects the named executive's pro-rata long-term cash incentive award for the 2005-2007 and 2006-2008 performance cycles
calculated at target, plus three times the average of the annualized long-term incentive award for the 2005-2007 and 2006-2008 performance cycles calculated at
amount reflects a lump sum payment equal to the positive difference, if any, between: (a) the sum of the lump-sum values of each maximum annuity that would
be payable to the named executive under any defined benefit plan (whether or not qualified under Section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code) if the named executive had: (i) become
fully vested in all such benefits, (ii) attained as of the named executive's termination date an age that is three years greater than named executive's actual age, (iii) accrued a
number of years of service that is three years greater than the number of years of service actually accrued by the named executive as of the named executive's termination date, and
(iv) received a lump-sum severance benefit consisting of three times base salary, three times annual incentive cash compensation calculated at target, plus the 2006 annual
incentive cash award as covered compensation in equal monthly installments during the three-year period following the named executive's termination date and (b) the
lump-sum values of the maximum annuity benefits vested and payable to named executive under each defined benefit plan that is qualified under Section 401(a) of the Internal
Revenue Code plus the aggregate amounts simultaneously or previously paid to the named executive under the defined benefit plans (whether or not qualified under Section 401(a)). The
calculation of the lump sum amounts payable under this formula does not impact the benefits payable under the ARP, SRIP or pension benefit enhancements. Messrs. Liddy's and
pension benefit enhancements, which are payable upon termination, are described in the Retirement Benefits narrative.
option values are based on a December 29, 2006 market close price of $65.11 per share of Allstate stock.
purposes of this table, unvested stock options, restricted stock and RSUs, which would have been immediately payable upon a change-in-control regardless
of termination of employment, were assumed to have been paid immediately prior to termination and are reflected in the "Amounts Immediately Payable Upon Effective Date of
December 29, 2006 market close price of $65.11 per share of Allstate stock was used to value the RSU and restricted stock value of unvested and nonforfeitable awards.
five business days after the effective date of a change-in-control that is not a merger of equals, the named executives will receive a lump sum
payment equal to the present value of the named executive's SRIP benefit, pension benefit enhancement, if applicable, and deferred compensation account balance. The present value of
non-qualified pension benefits earned through December 31, 2006 is based on a 5% lump sum factor (the lump sum interest rate used by the Allstate pension plans in 2007). Refer to
the Retirement Benefits section beginning on page 38 for a discussion of the SRIP benefit and pension benefit enhancement. See the Termination of Employment tables on pages 43-44 and
the corresponding footnotes for a breakdown of the present value of the SRIP and pension benefit enhancements for Messrs. Liddy and Sylla. See the Nonqualified Deferred Compensation at Fiscal
Year End 2006 table on page 42 for additional information on the deferred compensation plan and information regarding the named executive's account balances as of December 31, 2006.
The amounts reflected for Messrs. Hale and Simonson reflect the immediate vesting and payment of SRIP benefits.
purposes of this table, the present value of non-qualified pension benefits earned through December 31, 2006 and the named executive's Deferred Compensation
Plan account balance, if any, which would have been immediately payable upon a change-in-control regardless of termination of employment were assumed to have been paid
immediately prior to termination upon the effective date of a change of control and are reflected in the "Amounts Immediately Payable Upon Effective Date of

family until the third anniversary of the named executive's termination date. The amount shown reflects Allstate's costs for these benefits or programs.
payments made as a result of a change in control are subject to a 20% excise tax imposed on the named executive by Section 4999 of the Code. The Excise Tax
Reimbursement and Tax Gross-up is the amount Allstate would pay to the named executive as reimbursement for the 20% excise tax plus a tax gross-up for any taxes incurred by
the named executive resulting from the reimbursement of such excise tax. Messrs. Liddy and Sylla would not be subject to the 20% excise tax since any payments made to them as a result of a
change in control and termination of employment on December 31, 2006 would not exceed three times their average taxable compensation over the last five years. The estimated amounts of
reimbursement of any resulting excise taxes were determined without regard to the effect that restrictive covenants and any other facts and circumstances may have on the amount of excise taxes, if
any, that ultimately might be payable in the event these payments were made to a named executive officer which is not subject to reliable advance prediction or a reasonable estimate.
Bet you've never seen portfolio analytics like these.
