We provide modest death benefits to executives who are Senior Vice Presidents or higher under the Retirement Restoration Plans. Approximately 40 of our current executives are eligible for these death benefits. (For a detailed description of these benefits, please see Executive Compensation Post-Employment Compensation Pension Benefits later in this Proxy Statement.) We believe these benefits help make our overall compensation package competitive and that they are reasonable within the overall structure of our compensation programs.
