payable to such Participant under this Article VI, expressed as a single life annuity (payable monthly) shall be an amount equal to the excess of:
such Participants Grandfathered Accrued Benefit, reduced by 1/4 of 1% for each month by which such Participants Pension Plan Benefit Commencement Date precedes the first
day of the first calendar month after the calendar month in which such Participant attains age 62, over
such Participants Grandfathered Pension Plan Accrued Benefit, reduced by the same percentage amount, if any, by which such Participants accrued benefit under the Pension

former Participant, if such Participants Retirement Benefits (as defined under the terms of the Plan as previously in effect) are in pay status, such benefits shall be suspended in the manner described in Article 7 of the Pension
Plan. In the event a former Participant who has previously received his or her Retirement Benefit in the form of a lump sum is rehired pursuant to this Section 6.7, any further benefits to be paid to such Participant following his
or her next Termination of Employment pursuant to this Article VI shall be offset by the Actuarial Equivalent of the lump sum benefit. previously paid to such Participant.
