2.9 Amount of Monthly Benefits
Except as provided in subsections 2.10 and 2.11 below and subject to the succeeding provisions of this subsection, the monthly amount of Benefit payable to a Covered Employee who becomes Totally Disabled due to a sickness or bodily injury which first occurs on or after the Effective Date shall be an amount (not to exceed $41,667) equal to 75% of his or her Monthly Compensation (as defined in subsection 2.12) immediately prior to the occurrence of his or her Total Disability (up to a maximum annual salary of $500,000) plus, if a Short Term (Annual) Incentive bonus has been paid, 50% of the Covered Employees three-year average Short Term (Annual) Incentive Plan bonus (up to an average bonus of $250,000) for three (3) years immediately preceding the onset of Total Disability. If the Covered Employee has not received three (3) years of Short Term (Annual) Incentive Plan bonuses to average, the Plan will average the bonus payments received as of the onset of Total Disability. The monthly amount determined above shall be subtracted by any of the following amounts paid or payable for the same month:
In the event any amount described in subparagraph (b) or (d) above which is otherwise payable to a Covered Employee in monthly, weekly or other periodic payments is paid to him or her in a lump sum, such lump sum payment shall be applied in reduction of the monthly Benefits otherwise payable under the Plan by reducing such benefits (i) in the case of payments described in subparagraph (b) above, by the amount of such payment the Covered Employee would have received during each month had payment not been made in a lump sum until an amount equal to such lump sum has been applied; and (ii) in case of payments described in subparagraph (d) above, by the amount of the monthly or other periodic payment which would otherwise have been made. If after the Elimination Period and during the first twenty-four months of Total Disability, a Covered Employee engages in other employment while unable to fully perform the duties of his or her occupation for his or her Employer as a result of sickness or injury, the monthly amount of Benefit to which he or she is entitled under the Plan for any month while so engaged shall be reduced by 66-2/3% of the monthly compensation or income the Covered Employee receives from such other employment during such month. For this purpose, the term other employment means any employment engaged in by such employee whether part-time or full-time, or as an employee, independent contractor or a self-employed person.
