Perquisites and Other Benefits
Because our executive compensation program emphasizes pay for performance, it includes very few perquisites for our executives.

Officers at the level of senior vice president and above are eligible to receive basic financial planning services (including a gross-up on any income taxes imposed on the recipient of these services) and executive health exams.
