In addition to receipt of salary, management incentive bonuses and equity compensation, the Companys officers also participate in certain employee benefit programs provided by the Company. Executive officers participate in the Companys Pension Plan, which is described on pages 24 through 26 of this proxy statement, and can participate in the Companys 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan (Retirement Plan) and the Supplemental Benefit Plan (Supplemental Plan). To the extent that the Companys matching contribution exceeds certain limits applicable to the Retirement Plan, which are determined pursuant to the Code, the excess is allocated to the executive officers account under the Supplemental Plan. The Supplemental Plan is intended to provide a competitive benefit for executive officers whose employer-provided retirement contributions would otherwise be limited. The amount of the Companys matching contribution to the named executive officers under both the Retirement Plan and the Supplemental Plan is included in the All Other Compensation column of the Summary Compensation Table that follows this report.
The executive officers of the Company are eligible for life insurance benefits on the terms applicable to the Companys other employees. In addition, Mr. Verrecchia and Mr. Hassenfeld are provided with executive life insurance. The cost of the Companys premiums for executive life insurance programs for the named executive officers is included in the All Other Compensation column of the Summary Compensation Table.
The executive officers participate in the same medical and dental benefit plans as are provided to the Companys other employees.
Executive officers are also eligible to participate in the Companys Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan, which is available to all of the Companys employees who are in band 40 (director level) or above. The Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan allows participants to defer compensation into various hypothetical investment vehicles, the performance of which determines the return on compensation deferred under the plan. Potential investment choices include the Companys Common Stock, as well as other equity indices. Earnings on compensation deferred by the executive officers do not exceed the market returns on the relevant investments and are the same as the returns earned by other non-executive officer employees deferring compensation into the applicable investment vehicles.
The Company reimburses designated executive officers for the cost of certain tax and financial planning services they obtain from third parties provided that such costs are within the limits established by the Company. The cost to the Company for this reimbursement to the named executive officers is included in the Other Annual Compensation column of the Summary Compensation Table.
