UNITED AIRLINES

PILOT DIRECTED ACCOUNT PLAN

(2002 Restatement)


UNITED AIRLINES

PILOT DIRECTED ACCOUNT PLAN

(2002 RESTATEMENT)

Section 1 - INTRODUCTION

1.1 History, Purpose, Description and Interpretation.

(a) Effective January 1, 1955, a predecessor of United Air Lines, Inc. (the “Company”) established a variable benefit retirement income program to provide retirement income and other benefits for its eligible Pilot employees and their beneficiaries. Effective as of January 1, 1976, this program was amended and continued as United Air Lines, Inc. Pilots’ Variable Benefit Retirement Income Plan (the “Prior Plan”). Effective as of the Effective Date (September 1, 1982), the Prior Plan was amended, revised and restated as the United Air Lines, Inc. Pilots’ Directed Account Retirement Income Plan, which plan has subsequently been amended and is amended and restated by this instrument effective as of the Restatement Date (January 1, 2002) (the “Plan”).

(b) The Plan (including the Funding Part) is maintained pursuant to the terms of a collective bargaining agreement between the Company and the Association.

(c) The Plan is a profit sharing plan intended to constitute a qualified plan under Code Sections 401(a) and 501(a) with a qualified cash or deferred arrangement under Code Section 401(k), and is intended to conform to the requirements of ERISA and must be interpreted in furtherance of that intent. Effective January 1, 2003, the Plan is intended to be a design based safe harbor 401(k) plan under Code Section 401(k)(12).

(d) Some Plan provisions such as special purpose provisions or provisions that have application to a limited number of participants may be described in exhibits or supplements to the Plan. In the event of a conflict between the terms of a Plan exhibit or supplement and the terms of the remainder of the Plan, the terms of the Plan exhibit or supplement will control.

(e) To the extent required by and in accordance with treasury regulations, for any Plan Year that is less than 12 months long, the dollar limitations of Code Sections 401(a)(17), 414(q), 415 and 416 will be adjusted to reflect the short Plan Year.

(f) In the Plan, where the context requires, words in any gender include the other genders, the plural includes the singular, and the singular includes the plural.

1.2 Benefits Under Prior Plan. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan, if an individual retired or otherwise terminated his or her employment with the Company prior to the Effective Date, his or her right to benefits under the Prior Plan, if any, will be determined in accordance with the provisions of the Prior Plan.

1.3 Applicable Laws. The laws of Illinois shall be the controlling state law in all matters relating to the Plan and shall be applicable to the extent that they are not preempted by the laws of the United States of America.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   1-1   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


1.4 Compliance with Code Section 414(u). Notwithstanding any provision of this Plan to the contrary, contributions, benefits and service credit with respect to qualified military service will be provided in accordance with Code Section 414(u).

1.5 Defined Terms. The following terms when used with initial capitalization have the following meanings:

Account. An “Account” with respect to a Participant means any and all accounts maintained on his or her behalf pursuant to Section 5.1, as the context requires.

Actual Deferral Percentage or ADP. “Actual Deferral Percentage” or “ADP” means, for a specified group of eligible Participants for a Plan Year, the average of the ratios (calculated separately to the nearest one-hundredth of one percent for each eligible Participant in such group) of: (i) the amount of Company contributions actually paid over to the Funding Part on behalf of such Participant for the Plan Year to: (ii) the Participant’s Testing Wages while he or she was a Participant for such Plan Year. Company contributions on behalf of any Participant will include: (A) any Elective Deferrals made pursuant to the Participant’s deferral election, including Excess Elective Deferrals of Highly Compensated Employees; and (B) Qualified Non-Elective Contributions and Qualified Matching Contributions. For the purposes of computing Actual Deferral Percentages, a Participant who fails to make Elective Deferrals will be treated as a Participant on whose behalf zero Elective Deferrals are made.

Affiliate. The term “Affiliate” means any corporation on and after the date that it is, along with the Company, a member of a controlled group of corporations as defined in Code Sections 414(b), (c), (m) and (o). Strictly for purposes of Section 10, the term “Affiliate” will be modified to take into account the rules contained in Code Section 415(h).

Annuity Starting Date. An “Annuity Starting Date” is the first day of the first period for which an amount is paid as an annuity or, in the case of a form of benefit other than an annuity, the first day on which all events have occurred which entitle the Participant to payment of such benefit. An Annuity Starting Date shall occur as soon as administratively practicable following the receipt and processing by the Committee of all required and properly completed election forms filed by the Participant with the Committee.

Association. The “Association” is the Air Line Pilots Association, International.

Beneficiary. “Beneficiary” means the natural or legal person or persons to whom a deceased Participant’s benefits are payable pursuant to Section 7.5 and Section 7.6.

Business Day. “Business Day” means each day the New York Stock Exchange is open.

Code. “Code” means the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, any successor laws thereto, and regulations promulgated thereunder, and any other binding pronouncements of an agency of the federal government that has jurisdiction with respect thereto.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   1-2   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


Committee. “Committee” means the committee (sometimes referred to as PAWPAC) appointed by the Board of Directors of the Company with the authority to control and manage the operation and administration of the Plan on behalf of the Company in accordance with Section 8.

Company. “Company” means United Air Lines, Inc. and any successor thereto.

Deferral Limit. The “Deferral Limit” for a calendar year is the amount determined under Code Section 402(g), as adjusted for cost of living increases.

Disabled. A Participant will be considered “Disabled” for purposes of the Plan if he or she is permanently unable, for medical reasons, to pass the periodic physical examinations required by the Company for Pilots for reasons other than disability resulting from:

(a) intentional self inflicted injury or attempted suicide;

(b) addiction to alcohol or narcotics;

(c) injury sustained while engaged in or as a result of engaging in a criminal enterprise; and

(d) war or active service in the armed forces other than bodily injury or illness incurred while participating in a civilian reserve air fleet operation or while on military duty while actively employed by the Company.

The determination that a Participant is Disabled must occur while he or she is employed by the Company as a Pilot or within the one year period of his or her employment with the Company that commences on the date of his or her transfer to another job classification established by the Company. In order to determine if a Participant continues to be Disabled, the Company may cause the Participant to be re-examined annually during the period of time provided for his or her seniority protection under the then current agreement between the Company and the Association.

Earnings. The term “Earnings” with respect to any Participant means the total cash compensation (determined before deduction for the Participant’s Elective Deferral contributions under this Plan, the Participant’s elective contributions to the United Air Lines, Inc. Pilots’ Flexible Spending Program or any other pre-tax earnings deferral elections pursuant to a qualified cash or deferred arrangement or cafeteria plan) paid to him or her by the Company (whether paid before or after retirement, disability, death, or other termination of employment), with respect to services he or she performed while classified as a Pilot and performed after becoming a Participant in accordance with Section 2.1, provided, however, that for the purpose of making Elective Deferral Contributions under Section 4.2, Earnings will not include: (i) vacation pay received after the Participant’s termination of employment with the Company; (ii) contributions made or deemed to have been made by the Company on behalf of the Participant to any qualified or non-qualified deferred compensation plan (except contributions made by reason of the Participant’s earnings reduction election under a qualified cash or deferred arrangement) or other employee benefit plan (including but not limited to the Pilot Disability Income Plan or any other group disability plan), or any distribution or payment made or deemed to have been made to or on behalf of the Participant under any such plan; (iii) Company contributions, except

 

2002 Restated PDAP   1-3   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


contributions made by reason of an earnings reduction election to, or credits under, a Code Section 125 cafeteria plan whether or not received by the Participant in cash; (iv) except as provided under a qualified cash or deferred arrangement maintained by the Company, compensation, the payment of which is deferred pursuant to an election of the Participant; (v) hiring bonuses or other special payments relating to initiation of employment, moving expenses, relocation allowances, housing allowances, membership costs and dues, fees paid for employment referrals, prizes and awards (other than annual awards), expense reimbursement payments and allowances, pay for time on Furlough, and severance pay or other special payments relating to termination of employment; (vi) any foreign service allowances, goods and services differential, hardship pay, and tax equalization payments paid to a Participant who is designated by the Company as an expatriate, and any other special payments made in connection with such designation; and (vii) amounts realized with respect to restricted stock, non-qualified stock options, or stock appreciation rights.

The annual compensation of each Participant taken into account under the Plan for the Plan Year is limited to $200,000 (or such higher figure that reflects adjustments for changes in the cost of living provided under Code Section 401(a)(17)). If Earnings for any prior Plan Year are taken into account in determining a Participant’s allocations or benefits for the current determination period, the Earnings for such prior Plan Year are subject to the applicable limitation on Earnings in effect for that prior Plan Year. If the period for determining Earnings used in calculating a Participant’s allocation for a Plan Year is fewer than 12 months, other than an account of mid-year commencement or cessation of active participation, the Earnings limitation shall be an amount equal to the $200,000 limitation (as adjusted for cost of living increase) multiplied by the fraction, the numerator of which is the number of months in the short Plan Year, and the denominator of which is 12 months.

Effective Date. September 1, 1982.

Elective Deferrals or Elective Deferral Contributions. “Elective Deferrals” or “Elective Deferral Contributions” means any Company contributions made to the Plan pursuant to the election of the Participant, in lieu of cash compensation, and include contributions made under Section 4.2. With respect to any taxable year, a Participant’s Elective Deferrals is the sum of all Company contributions made on behalf of such Participant pursuant to an election to defer under any qualified cash or deferred arrangement as described in Code Section 401(k), any simplified employee pension cash or deferred arrangement, as described in Code Section 402(h)(1)(B), any eligible deferred compensation plan under Code Section 457, any plan as described under Code Section 501(c)(18), and any employer contributions made on the behalf of the Participant for the purchase of an annuity contract under Code Section 403(b) pursuant to a salary reduction agreement.

ERISA. “ERISA” means the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended.

Funding Part. “Funding Part” means that part of the Plan, including the Trust and other funding documents, under which all of the benefits provided by the Plan are funded and paid.

The amount of any contribution that may be returned to the Company pursuant to this Section must be reduced by any portion thereof previously distributed from the Trust Fund and by any losses of the Trust Fund allocable thereto, and in no event may the return of such contribution cause any Participant’s Account balances to be less than the amount of such balances had the contribution not been made under the Plan.

Section 4 - PLAN CONTRIBUTIONS

4.1 Company Contributions.

(a) For each calendar month, the Company will contribute, to any entity or entities authorized to receive such contributions under the Funding Part, on behalf of each Participant, an amount equal in the aggregate to eleven percent (11%) of the Earnings received by him. The amount of Company contributions made in accordance with this Section 4.1 will be credited to the Participant’s Regular Contribution Account in accordance with Section 5.3.

(b) The Company contribution under Section 4.1(a) will be treated as a nonelective contribution within the meaning of Code Section 401(k)(12)(C) for purposes of satisfying the design based safe harbor 401(k) plan requirements of Code Section 401(k)(12).

4.2 Participant Elective Deferral Contributions.

(a) Elective Deferral Contributions Permitted. Subject to paragraphs (b), (c), and (e) below, Sections 4.5 and 10.1, and all other conditions and limitations of the Plan, a Participant may elect, at any time, to reduce his or her Earnings for any future calendar month in an amount of not more than 50% (in multiples of one percent) of the Earnings paid to him or her during that month, and to have such amount contributed to the Plan on his or her behalf by the Company, in cash, as an Elective Deferral Contribution. For purposes of this Section 4.2 only, a Participant’s Earnings will be determined without regard to the compensation limit of Code Section 401(a)(17). A Participant’s election to commence Elective Deferral Contributions will become effective no later than the pay period beginning on the first day of a month if the Committee receives a complete and accurate election on or before the 15th day of the previous month, and will thereafter continue in effect until such election is changed or revoked in accordance with this Section 4.2. A reference in this Plan to an election to make Elective Deferral Contributions means the Participant has elected to have his or her Earnings reduced in consideration of the Employer’s obligation to contribute Elective Deferral Contributions in the same amount to the Plan on the Participant’s behalf.

(b) Deferral Limit. In no event may a Participant’s Elective Deferral contribution exceed the Deferral Limit for any calendar year.

(c) Change, Discontinuance, and Resumption of Elective Deferrals. At any time, a Participant may elect to change the rate of his or her Elective Deferral Contributions made in accordance with paragraph (a) above (but not retroactively) within the limits specified therein, to discontinue making such contributions, or to resume making such contributions. Any election under this paragraph will become effective no later than the pay period beginning on the first day of a month if the Committee receives a complete and accurate election on or before the 15th day of the previous month.

(d) Committee Discretion to Reduce or Revoke Elective Deferral Contributions. The Committee may, at any time, decrease a Participant’s Elective Deferral Contributions by even multiples of one percent or, at any time, revoke a Participant’s Elective Deferral Contributions upon a determination by it that unless such contributions are reduced or revoked, the additions to the Participant’s Account under the Plan will exceed the Deferral Limit.

(a) Voluntary Contributions Permitted. Subject to paragraphs (b) and (c) below and all other conditions and limitations of the Plan, a Participant may elect, at any time, to make voluntary after-tax contributions under the Plan for any future calendar month that he or she is a Participant hereunder in an amount such that his or her Elective Deferral Contributions under Section 4.2 and his or her Voluntary Contributions (in multiples of one percent) do not in the aggregate exceed 50% of the Earnings paid to him or her during that month. Unless the Participant otherwise specifies, any Elective Deferral Contributions under Section 4.2(a) and Voluntary Contributions under this paragraph will be deemed to be first treated as Elective Deferral Contributions up to the limits specified in this Plan, with any remaining election being a Voluntary Contribution under this paragraph. Any election under this paragraph will be effective not later than the pay period beginning on the first day of a month if the Committee receives a complete and accurate election on or before the 15th day of the preceding month.

(b) Change, Discontinuance, and Resumption of Voluntary Contributions. At any time, a Participant may elect to change the rate of his or her Voluntary Contributions (but not retroactively) within the limits specified in paragraph (a), to discontinue making such contributions, or to resume making such contributions. Any election under this paragraph will be effective not later than the pay period beginning on the first day of a month if the Committee receives a complete and accurate election on or before the 15th day of the preceding month.

4.4 Rollover Contributions. A Participant may elect to make a Rollover Contribution to the Plan.

4.5 Actual Deferral Percentage Limitations. The following provisions of this Section 4.5 shall apply only in the event the Committee is unable to rely on the contributions made under Section 4.1 and the safe harbor provisions of Code Section 401(k)(12) to satisfy the non-discrimination requirements of Code Section 401(k)(3).

(a) ADP Test. Effective for Plan Years beginning after December 31, 1996, the Plan must satisfy the requirements of Code Section 401(k)(3). The Plan will satisfy the requirements of Code Section 401(k)(3) for a Plan Year if, for that Plan Year, the Plan satisfies the requirements of Code Section 410(b)(1) with respect to “eligible Participants” and one of the following tests:

(i) The ADP for the Plan Year for “eligible Participants” who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year does not exceed the ADP for the Plan Year for “eligible Participants” who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year, multiplied by 1.25; or

(ii) The ADP for the Plan Year for “eligible Participants” who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year does not exceed the ADP for the Plan Year for “eligible Participants” who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year, multiplied by 2.0, provided that the ADP for the Plan Year for “eligible Participants” who are Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year does not exceed the ADP for the Plan Year for “eligible Participants” who are Non-Highly Compensated Employees for the Plan Year by more than two percentage points.

(b) Special Rules; Definitions

(i) For purposes of Section 4.5(a), an “eligible Participant” is any Participant who is eligible to make Elective Deferral Contributions for the Plan Year in question or would be eligible but for a suspension imposed under Section 7.14(b)(ii)(B)(3).

(ii) The ADP for any Participant who is a Highly Compensated Employee for the Plan Year and who is eligible to have Elective Deferral contributions (and Qualified Non-Elective Contributions or Qualified Matching Contributions, or both, if treated as Elective Deferral contributions for purposes of the ADP test) allocated to his or her or her Accounts under two or more arrangements described in Code Section 401(k) that are maintained by the Company or an Affiliate will be determined as though such Elective Deferral contributions (and, if applicable, such Qualified Non-elective Contributions or Qualified Matching Contributions, or both) were made under a single arrangement. If a Highly Compensated Employee participates in two or more cash or deferred arrangements that have different plan years, all cash or deferred arrangements ending with or within the same calendar year will be treated as a single arrangement.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   4-3   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


(iii) For the purpose of performing the ADP test, Elective Deferral Contributions, Qualified Non-Elective Contributions, and Qualified Matching Contributions must be made before the last day of the 12-month period immediately following the Plan Year to which such contributions relate.

(iv) The Committee will maintain records sufficient to demonstrate the satisfaction of the ADP test and the amount of Qualified Non-Elective Contributions or Qualified Matching Contributions, or both used in such test.

(v) The determination and treatment of the ADP amounts of any Participant will satisfy such other requirements as may be prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury.

(vi) Excess Elective Deferrals that are distributed pursuant to Section 4.6 before April 15th of the taxable year succeeding the taxable year to which they relate shall be counted for purposes of the ADP test, provided that Excess Elective Deferrals distributed to Non-Highly Compensated Employees will not be counted in the ADP test.

(c) Determination of Excess Contributions to be Recharacterized or Distributed. Effective for Plan Years beginning after December 31, 1996, the amount of the Excess Contributions to be attributed to a Participant to be recharacterized under paragraph (d) or distributed pursuant to paragraph (e) will be determined by successively decreasing the amount of Elective Deferrals for Highly Compensated Employees who, for the Plan Year, had the largest dollar amount of Elective Deferrals made on their behalf to the next lower dollar amount, and continuing this procedure until an amount equal to the Excess Contributions has been removed from the Accounts of the Highly Compensated Employees.

(d) Recharacterization. Excess Contributions attributed to a Participant for a Plan Year will automatically be recharacterized as an amount distributed to the Participant and then contributed by the Participant as a Voluntary Contribution to the Plan. Recharacterization is deemed to have occurred on the date on which the last of those Highly Compensated Employees with Excess Contributions to be recharacterized is notified in accordance with treasury regulations. Recharacterized amounts will remain nonforfeitable and subject to the same distribution requirements as Elective Deferrals. (In no event may an amount recharacterized pursuant to this paragraph as a Voluntary Contribution be withdrawn pursuant to Section 7.14(a)). Amounts may not be recharacterized with respect to a Highly Compensated Employee to the extent that such amount in combination with other Voluntary Contributions made by that Participant would exceed any stated limit on Voluntary Contributions under the Plan. Recharacterization must occur no later than 2 1/2 months after the last day of the Plan Year in which such Excess Contributions arose. Recharacterized amounts will be taxable to the Participant for the Participant’s earliest tax year in which he or she deferred any of such recharacterized amounts into the Plan. Written notice of the recharacterized amounts will be sent to affected Participants.

(e) Distribution of Excess Contributions. In the event Excess Contributions cannot be recharacterized under (d) above, Excess Contributions, plus any income and minus any loss

 

2002 Restated PDAP   4-4   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


allocable thereto, attributed to a Participant under Paragraph (c) above will be distributed no later than the last day of the succeeding Plan Year to Participants who were Highly Compensated Employees for such Plan Year.

(f) Determination of Income or Loss. Excess Contributions will be adjusted for any income or loss up to the date of the last day of the Plan Year preceding the date of distribution. The income or loss allocable to Excess Contributions is the sum of (A) income or loss allocable to the Participant’s Elective Deferral Account (and, if applicable, the Qualified Non-Elective Contribution account or the Qualified Matching Contribution account or both) for the Plan Year multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is (A) such Participant’s Excess Contributions for the year and the denominator of which is (B) the Participant’s beginning of the year account balance(s) attributable to Elective Deferrals (and Qualified Non-Elective Contributions or Qualified Matching Contributions, or both, if any of such contributions are included in the ADP test) without regard to any income or loss occurring during such Plan Year, plus contributions made during the year.

(g) Accounting for Excess Contributions. Except to the extent recharacterized in accordance with paragraph (d) above, Excess Contributions will be distributed from the Participant’s Elective Deferral Account and Qualified Matching Contribution Account (if applicable) in proportion to the Participant’s Elective Deferrals and Qualified Matching Contributions (to the extent used in the ADP test) for the Plan Year. Excess Contributions will be distributed from the Participant’s Qualified Non-Elective Contribution Account only to the extent that such Excess Contributions exceed the balance in the Participant’s Elective Deferral Account and Qualified Matching Contribution Account.

4.6 Distribution of Excess Elective Deferrals and Income.

(a) Determining Excess Elective Deferrals. A Participant may assign to this Plan any Excess Elective Deferrals made during a taxable year of the Participant by notifying the Committee on or before March 15 of the following year of the amount of the Excess Elective Deferrals to be assigned to this Plan.

(b) Determination of Income or Loss. Excess Elective Deferrals will be adjusted for any income or loss up to the date of distribution. The income or loss allocable to Excess Elective Deferrals is the income or loss allocable to the Participant’s Elective Deferral Account for the Participant’s taxable year, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is such Participant’s Excess Elective Deferrals for the year and the denominator of which is the Participant’s account balance attributable to Elective Deferrals (including Elective Deferrals for that taxable year) without regard to any income or loss occurring during such taxable year.

(c) Distribution. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan, Excess Elective Deferrals, plus any income and minus any loss allocable thereto, will be distributed no later than April 15 to any Participant to whose account Excess Elective Deferrals were assigned for the preceding year and who claims Excess Elective Deferrals under this Plan for such taxable year. In addition, if the applicable limitation for the taxable year is exceeded with respect to this Plan alone or this Plan and any other plan(s) of the Company, the Committee shall direct the Trustee

to distribute such Excess Elective Deferrals (with allocable gains and losses) to the Participant as soon as administratively practicable after the Company notifies the Committee or the Committee otherwise discovers the error (but no later than April 15 following the close of the Participant’s taxable year). Excess Elective Deferrals distributed in accordance with paragraph (a) above shall not be treated as Annual Additions.

Section 5 - ACCOUNTING

5.1 Participants’ Accounts. The Accounts described below will be established and maintained under the Plan by the Committee in the name of each Participant, as applicable:

(a) Regular Contribution Account. The Committee will maintain a “Regular Contribution Account” in the name of each Participant that will reflect:

(i) the Company contribution made on his or her behalf pursuant to Section 4.1 for each calendar month ending after the Effective Date;

(ii) in the case of a Participant who was a Participant on the Effective Date, the value transferred to the Regular Contribution Account from the Prior Plan attributable to Company contributions made on behalf of the Participant to the Prior Plan; and

(iii) in the case of a Participant who was a Participant on the Effective Date, the value transferred from the “regular contribution account” from the Prior Plan attributable to mandatory contributions made by the Participant to the Prior Plan.

(b) Elective Deferral Account. The Committee will maintain an “Elective Deferral Account” in the name of each Participant, as applicable, that will reflect the Elective Deferral Contributions deposited by the Company on his or her behalf pursuant to Section 4.2. There will also be credited to a sub-account within such Account any Qualified Matching Contributions.

(c) Voluntary Contribution Account. The Committee will maintain a “Voluntary Contribution Account” in the name of each Participant, as applicable, that will reflect (i) the Participant’s Voluntary Contributions made for each calendar month ending after the Effective Date; and (ii) in the case of a Participant who was a Participant on the Effective Date, the value transferred to the Voluntary Contribution Account from the Prior Plan attributable to the Participant’s voluntary contributions made to the Prior Plan.

(d) Rollover Contribution Account. The Committee will maintain a “Rollover Contribution Account” in the name of each Participant who makes a Rollover Contribution pursuant to Section 4.4 that will reflect the amount of the Participant’s Rollover Contribution. In addition, any trust-to-trust transfer accepted under Section 4.4 will be accounted for as a Rollover Contribution hereunder.

(e) QDRO Account. The Committee will maintain a “QDRO Account” in the name of each of a Participant’s alternate payee(s) on whose behalf such an account must be maintained pursuant to a qualified domestic relations order, as permitted under Section 7.9. A QDRO Account initially will reflect the amount transferred thereto from the Participant’s other Accounts, which will be deemed to come first from a Participant’s pre-tax contributions and earnings thereon and next from his or her after-tax contributions and earnings thereon. The alternate payee in whose name a QDRO Account is established will be considered a Participant for all purposes of the Plan with respect to the assets in the QDRO Account, unless the Plan specifies otherwise or the context indicates otherwise.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   5-1   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


Each Account maintained in the name of a Participant (or an alternate payee) will be valued in accordance with Section 5.2 and will be subdivided into sub-accounts to reflect the Participant’s (or alternate payee’s) interest, if any, in each of the respective Investment Funds described in Section 6 and to separately account for mandatory contributions and earnings thereon held under the Regular Contribution Account. The Committee may also maintain such other accounts in the names of Participants or otherwise as it may consider advisable. Unless the context indicates otherwise, reference to a Participant’s “Accounts” means all Accounts maintained under the Plan, in the Participant’s name, and reference to a Participant’s “Accounts” in a particular Investment Fund means all sub-accounts maintained in his or her name under that Investment Fund.

5.2 Valuation and Adjustment of Accounts. Accounts shall be valued at the close of each Business Day. The value of each Account shall equal the sum of the values of the shares held by the Account in each Investment Fund. The value of the shares in each Investment Fund is the Investment Fund’s price per share multiplied by the number of shares held. The Investment Fund’s price per share is the total net assets of the Investment Fund divided by the number of shares outstanding in such Investment Fund. The total net assets of an Investment Fund is the sum of the market value of portfolio holdings, cash, interest receivable, dividends receivable, receivable for securities sold, receivable for contributions, and receivable for transfers-in, less the payable for securities purchased, payable for benefit payments, payable for transfers-out, and payable for Trustee’s fee.

(d) A Rollover Contribution will be credited to a Participant’s Rollover Contribution Account as of the date such Rollover Contribution is received by the Trustee.

(e) An amount will be credited to a QDRO Account as of the date such amount is transferred from the Participant’s Accounts.

(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this Section 5.4, if a partial payment or distribution is made to or on behalf of a Participant or his or her Beneficiary, it will be charged to the proper Accounts of the Participant when made, by charging the Accounts in the following order: his or her Voluntary Contribution sub-accounts, on a prorata basis among the Money Market Fund, Short Term Bond Fund, Diversified Bond Fund, Value Equity Fund, Growth Equity Fund, Small Cap Equity Fund, S & P 500 Index Fund, International Equity Fund, 20%/80% Global Balanced Fund, 40%/60% Global Balanced Fund, 60%/40% Global Balanced Fund, 80%/20% Global Balanced Fund, and 100% Global Equity Fund, following which there will be charged, successively, the UAL Stock Fund until the UAL Stock Fund is depleted and finally from the Individual Brokerage Account Option. Following depletion of the Participant’s Voluntary Contribution sub-accounts, any remaining partial payment or withdrawal will be charged to his or her Rollover Contribution subaccounts, next his or her Regular Contribution sub-accounts, and finally his or her Elective Deferral sub-accounts in the same order. If a partial payment or distribution is made to or on behalf of an alternate payee, it will be charged to the QDRO Account when made by charging the alternate payee’s sub-accounts in the same order as set forth in the preceding provisions of this Section 5.4.

(b) A Participant may elect to make an in-kind transfer, of all of the assets in the Participant’s Individual Brokerage Account Option, to an “individual retirement account” (IRA) sponsored by the same organization acting as broker of the Plan’s Individual Brokerage Account Option. Such in-kind transfer will be made by charging the Participant’s sub-accounts in the amounts such sub-accounts were invested in the Individual Brokerage Account Option.

Section 6 - INVESTMENT OF PARTICIPANTS’ ACCOUNTS

6.1 Investment Funds. The Fund will be divided into separate Investment Funds, and a Participant’s Accounts will be invested in one or more of the Investment Funds, in accordance with the Participant’s election as provided in Section 6.2. The Investment Funds shall consist of the following:

(a) Fixed Income Funds.

(i) Money Market Fund. Assets in the Money Market Fund shall be invested and reinvested primarily in commercial paper, bankers acceptances, variable rate notes, floating rate instruments, U.S. Treasury bills, certificates of deposit, repurchase agreements, and in any other similar fixed income obligation or agreement, the maturities of which shall generally be short-term in nature. The objective of the Money Market Fund is to provide a rate of return consistent with a high degree of liquidity and preservation of principal.

(ii) Short Term Bond. Assets of the Short Term Bond Fund shall be invested primarily in U.S. Government-backed securities, to include Treasury bills, Treasury bonds, and obligations issued by agencies of the Federal Government, the maturities of which will not exceed five years or an average of three years. The objective of the Short Term Bond Fund is to provide a rate of return consistent with a high degree of liquidity.

(iii) Small Cap Equity Fund. Assets of the Small Cap Equity Fund will be invested and reinvested in stock issued as common or capital stock; bonds, debentures, or preferred stock that are convertible into common or capital stock; or in any other form of equity investment; provided, however, that up to 10% of the assets of the Fund may be invested in futures contracts or options on futures contracts. The objective of the Small Cap Equity Fund is to provide return primarily through capital investments that emphasize appreciation in smaller capitalization companies with emerging growth prospects.

(iv) International Equity Fund. Assets of the International Equity Fund will be invested and reinvested primarily in stock: issued as common or capital stock; bonds, debentures, or preferred stock that are convertible into common or capital stock; any other form of equity or debt investment; bonds, notes, debentures, mortgages, preferred stock, commercial paper, bankers acceptances, variable rate notes, floating rate instruments, certificates of deposit, repurchase agreements, or other similar fixed income obligations, many of which are issued by corporations or other enterprises incorporated under or doing business under the laws of foreign jurisdictions, by foreign governments or agencies, or by international organizations; provided, however, that up to 10% of the assets of the Fund may be invested in futures contracts or options on futures contracts. The objective of the International Equity Fund is to provide return and diversification through foreign investments.

(v) S & P 500 Index Fund. Assets of the S & P 500 Index Fund will be invested and reinvested primarily in stock issues included in the Standard and Poor’s 500 Stock Index or in collective investment funds comprised primarily of these stock issues; provided, however, that up to 10% of the assets of the S & P 500 Index Fund may be invested in S & P futures contracts and options on S & P futures contracts. The objective of the S & P 500 Index Fund is to be fully diversified, and it is designed to closely match the performance of the S & P 500 Index.

(vi) UAL Stock Fund. Assets of the UAL Stock Fund will be invested and reinvested in UAL Corporation common stock (“UAL Stock”) or in short-term, fixed return investments in sufficient amount to pay expenses (such as brokerage expenses involved in the purchase or sale of UAL Stock) and to maintain reasonable liquidity in the Fund as UAL Stock is bought and sold. The objective of the UAL Stock Fund is to keep the bulk of the Fund’s assets invested in UAL Stock. Investments in the UAL Stock Fund are subject to the following:

(A) All UAL Stock will be purchased or sold on the New York Stock Exchange or other securities exchanges.

(B) Participants in the UAL Stock Fund will be credited with units in the Fund representing a combination of shares, fractional shares, and other assets in the Fund, rather than being credited directly with a specified number of shares of UAL Stock.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   6-2   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


(C) Dividends, if any, on UAL Stock in the UAL Stock Fund will be credited to the Fund and will be used to purchase additional shares of UAL Stock or will be invested temporarily in short-term, fixed return investments.

(D) Participants in the UAL Stock Fund will be entitled to direct the Plan’s Trustee with respect to the voting of full and fractional shares of UAL Stock represented by the units credited to their accounts. The Trustee will solicit such votes. Full and fractional shares of UAL Stock for which no direction is received by the Trustee in a timely fashion will be voted in proportion to the votes of the shares for which direction was received, unless the Trustee in its sole discretion elects to vote such undirected shares in another way in accordance with its ERISA duties.

(E) Pursuant to the Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Recapitalization, dated as of March 25, 1994, as in effect from time to time, among UAL Corporation and Air Line Pilots Association, International and International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (the “Recapitalization Agreement”) UAL Corporation will be recapitalized on or about July 12, 1994. This will result in the issuance of new UAL Corporation common stock, par value $0.01 per share, to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange, that will be exchanged for existing UAL Stock at the rate of one-half new share for each old share. Upon the issuance of such new shares, they will thereafter be the “UAL Stock” covered by the Plan, and purchases and sales of such new shares may be made subject to the terms of the Plan and the limitations of Section 6.9.

(F) The recapitalization provided for in the Recapitalization Agreement will also result in the issuance by UAL Corporation of other debt and equity securities and cash in exchange for old UAL Stock (through the issuance and redemption of Series D Redeemable Preferred Stock). Those other securities are depository shares representing Series B Preferred Stock issued by UAL Corporation, Series A Debentures due 2004 issued by the Company, and Series B Debentures due 2014 issued by the Company (the “Other Securities”). Some or all of the Other Securities may be converted into cash by underwriters as provided in the Recapitalization Agreement. To the extent Plan Participants participating in the UAL Stock Fund receive cash in connection with the recapitalization, whether directly or through the sale of some or all of the Other Securities, that cash, when received by the Trustee, will be invested in the Blended Income Fund. To the extent that any of the other Securities are received by the Trustee in kind, rather than being sold for cash, each of such Other Securities will be invested in separate Investment Funds (one per type of security), which will be created under Section 6.1. Once an Investment Fund is created for any Other Security, purchases and sales of such security may occur pursuant to Participant direction under the terms of the Plan and subject to the limitations of Section 6.9. Any interest, dividends, or other earnings payable in connection with any Other Security will be reinvested in the Investment Fund holding such security.

(e) Additional Investment Funds. One or more additional Investment Funds may be established on the direction of the Company, with the written consent of the Association. Investment in such additional Investment Fund or Funds may be made in accordance with rules established by the Committee, provided that if less than 10 percent of the Participants elect to invest a portion of their Accounts in such Investment Fund or Funds, such Investment Fund or Funds may be closed.

6.2 Investment of Accounts.

2002 Restated PDAP   6-5   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


(i) Each Participant with respect to whom the Company is making current Company contributions to his or her Regular Contribution Account, or who is making Elective Deferral Contributions to his or her Elective Deferral Account, or who is making current Voluntary Contributions to his or her Voluntary Contribution Account, or who is making a Rollover Contribution to his or her Rollover Account, may direct the investment of such current contribution(s) among the Investment Funds set forth in Section 6.1. Notwithstanding the foregoing, investment of current Company contributions, current Voluntary Contributions, and a current Rollover Contribution in the Individual Brokerage Account Option is prohibited.

(ii) A Participant must direct the apportionment of current Company contributions, current Elective Deferral Contributions, current Voluntary Contributions, or a Rollover Contribution among the Investment Funds in increments of 1% of any such contribution. Directions with respect to apportionment of contributions may vary among the Participant’s Accounts under the Plan.

(iii) Any Participant who fails to direct the investment of current Company contributions, current Elective Deferral Contributions, current Voluntary Contributions, a Rollover Contribution, or any other contribution will be deemed to have directed investment of 100% of any such contribution in the Money Market Fund.

(iv) On any Business Day, a Participant may direct a change in the manner in which current Company contributions to his or her Regular Contribution Account, current Elective Deferral Contributions to his or her Elective Deferral Account, and current Voluntary Contributions to his or her Voluntary Contribution Account are apportioned among the Investment Funds. Apportionment of either the current Company contributions, current Elective Deferral Contributions, or current Voluntary Contributions must be in increments of 1% of such contributions.

(b) Transfer Among Investment Funds of Balances in Participants’ Accounts.

(i) On any Business Day, a Participant may direct a change in the apportionment among the Investment Funds of the balances in any one or more of his or her Accounts. Such a change will necessitate the transfer of assets out of one or more Investment Fund(s) and into one or more different Investment Fund(s).

(ii) A Participant may direct such reapportionment or transfer in any share, dollar, or percentage increments with respect to any one Account. Directions with respect to the reapportionment of Account balances may vary among the Participant’s Accounts under the Plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing:

(A) A transfer to the Individual Brokerage Account Option may be made only from a Participant’s Account invested in the Money Market Fund.

Account remains invested in the following Investment Funds: Money Market Fund, Short Term Bond Fund, Diversified Bond Fund, Value Equity Fund, Growth Equity Fund, Small Cap Equity Fund, International Equity Fund, UAL Stock Fund, S&P 500 Index Fund, 20%/80% Global Balanced Fund, 40%/60% Global Balanced Fund, 60%/40% Global Balanced Fund, 80%/20% Global Balanced Fund and 100% Global Equity Fund. In the event a Participant fails to maintain the required minimum $10,000 investment in such core Investment Funds, the Trustee will notify the Participant and request the Participant to take action to restore the minimum $10,000 investment. In the event the Participant fails to restore the minimum $10,000 investment thereafter, the Trustee will effect transfers from the Participant’s Individual Brokerage Account as required to restore the minimum $10,000 investment, pay the required administrative fee, and pay the associated transfer fees. The Trustee will effect such transfers in the order determined by the Committee with the written consent of the Association.

(C) A transfer to the Individual Brokerage Account Option may be made from assets in any one or more of the Participant’s Regular Contribution Account, Voluntary Contribution Account and Rollover Account, and only after the transfer of all assets from the Regular Contribution Account, Voluntary Contribution Account and Rollover Account, a transfer to the Individual Brokerage Account may be made from assets in the Participant’s Elective Deferral Account.

(iii) A transaction fee shall be imposed with respect to each transaction to transfer assets out of an Investment Fund, whether such assets are to be transferred to another Investment Fund(s) or are to be distributed to or on behalf of a Participant or Beneficiary; provided, however, that no fee shall be imposed on transfers out of the Money Market Fund. Transaction fees imposed hereunder shall be due and paid to the Investment Fund from which the transfer of assets is made, and the amount of assets transferred out of any Investment Fund shall be reduced by the amount of the transaction fee imposed hereunder. An additional fee will be imposed on investments in, and may be imposed on transfers within, the Individual Brokerage Account Option. An additional administrative fee, initially set at $200, will be charged by and paid to the Trustee to effect transfers necessary to restore the minimum $10,000 investment pursuant to Section 6.2(b)(ii). The Company and the Association shall mutually agree in writing upon the amount of any fees imposed hereunder and any modification(s) to such fees. The amount of any fees imposed hereunder, and modifications to such fees, shall be communicated to the Participants before the effective date of such imposition or modification.

(iv) A Participant’s direction to transfer any of his or her Account assets to the Individual Brokerage Account Option will constitute his or her agreement to release all parties involved in providing the Individual Brokerage Account Option to the Participant from, and indemnify such parties for, any liability or costs they may incur as a result of that investment decision. Before a transfer of the Participant’s Account assets is first made to the Individual Brokerage Account Option, and from time to time thereafter as may be required by the Committee, the Participant will execute an agreement and

acknowledgment in such form as may be specified from time to time by the Committee with the written consent of the Association, that evidences such release and indemnity and acknowledges that he, and not the parties involved in providing such Option, are responsible for such investment.

6.3 Procedures for Giving Investment Directions. A Participant’s investment directions shall be governed by the procedural rules in this Section.

(a) A Participant’s investment directions shall be given to the “recordkeeper.” The “recordkeeper” is the corporation designated from time to time as such by the Trustee. To give directions by telephone, a Participant must identify himself or herself on the telephone using both his or her Personal Identification Number (“PIN”) and his or her Company File Number.

(b) A Participant may cancel directions on the same day that such directions become effective under Section 6.4(a)(i), provided he or she gives directions for cancellation before the close of the applicable primary market or exchange that day.

(c) A Participant may, at his or her option, permit his or her Spouse to give investment directions in accordance with procedures made available by the recordkeeper. Any directions given by a Participant’s Spouse in accordance with this paragraph (c) shall be considered, for all purposes, to be directions given by the Participant.

(d) A Participant may, at his or her option, permit any other person to give investment directions on the Participant’s behalf by using the Participant’s PIN. Neither the Company, the Committee, the Trustee, an investment manager, the recordkeeper nor any other non-Participant fiduciary shall be responsible or liable for any investment directions given by any person or for any investment results therefrom, and the Participant shall indemnify such parties for any liability or costs that they may incur as a result of the Participant, or any other person using his or her PIN, giving any investment directions. Any investment directions given by a person other than the Participant, by using the Participant’s PIN, will be considered, for all purposes, to be directions given by the Participant. Any separate PINs issued prior to March 1, 1998, to a Spouse of a Participant pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (c) above may, unless the Participant otherwise directs, continue to be used by such Spouse, but no separate PINs shall be issued to a Spouse after that date.

6.4 Effective Date of Investment Directions; Confirmation of Transaction.

(a) (i) Subject to subparagraph (a)(ii) below:

(A) A Participant’s investment directions given pursuant to Section 6.3 shall be effective as of the close of the applicable primary market or exchange on the day on which the directions are received by the recordkeeper, and will be executed based on prices at the close of that stock exchange that day, provided directions are received before the close of that primary market or exchange.

(B) A Participant’s investment directions received by the recordkeeper after the close of the applicable primary market or exchange will be executed based on prices at the close of that primary market or exchange on the following trading day.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   6-8   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


(ii) If the settlement rule set forth in Sections 6.7(b) and 6.7(c) is in effect, transaction(s) to withdraw from an Investment Fund shall be processed at the value per share in effect at the close of the applicable stock exchange on the trading day provided in subparagraph (a)(i) above, but the transaction(s) to reinvest the proceeds of the withdrawal into another Investment Fund(s) shall be effective as of the close of the applicable stock exchange on the trading day on which the proceeds are available from the settlement(s) of such withdrawal transaction(s), and shall be processed at the value per share in effect at the close of the applicable stock exchange on the trading day the withdrawal transactions(s) actually settle, or such earlier trading day as funds are available to settle all withdrawal transaction(s) then pending in that Investment Fund.

(b) A written confirmation of the transaction will be sent to the Participant, at his or her home address, and if the Participant so elects, at one other address as on file with the recordkeeper, within three Business Days from the date the directions were given by the Participant.

(c) If a dispute arises concerning investment directions given, claims must be made to the Committee, in care of the Company’s Pension Department (WHQTE), within 30 days from the date the confirmation is received, or if no confirmation is received, within 30 days from the date the Participant receives the statement for the month in which the transaction occurred or should have occurred.

(d) Notwithstanding the foregoing, investment directions given with respect to the Individual Brokerage Account Option will be subject to such separate or additional effective date, confirmation, and dispute resolution procedures as the Committee, with the consent of the Association, may from time to time provide.

6.5 Investment of Accounts on Death of Participant. Upon notice to the Company of the death of a Participant or the death of a Surviving Spouse maintaining Accounts under the Plan, the Company shall notify the Trustee, and shall direct that the balances in the deceased individual’s Accounts that are not already invested in the Money Market Fund be transferred, in full, to the Money Market Fund, where they shall remain until distributed in accordance with the Plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Participant’s Beneficiary is his or her Surviving Spouse and such Surviving Spouse elects to maintain Accounts under the Plan following the Participant’s death, then no automatic transfer will be made to the Money Market Fund and the Surviving Spouse’s Accounts will be subject to investment direction by the Surviving Spouse in accordance with Section 6. Accounts automatically transferred to the Money Market Fund pursuant to this Section 6.5 will remain in the Money Market Fund until distributed in accordance with the Plan. The date of transfer to the Money Market Fund shall be the day following notification to the Trustee, and the Accounts shall be valued as of the close of business (a) of the day of notification to the Trustee of the death of the Participant, or (b) of the fifth Business Day following the date of official notification to the Company of the death of the Participant, whichever occurs first.

6.6 Investment of QDRO Accounts. Upon establishment of a QDRO Account, the Committee shall direct the Trustee to invest all assets of the QDRO Account in the Money Market Fund. Thereafter, assets of the QDRO Account will be invested, in accordance with Section 6, as directed by the alternate payee in whose name the QDRO Account has been established.

6.7 Satisfaction of Liquidity Needs of Investment Fund(s).

(a) Borrowing from Money Market Fund. If the transactions requested by Participants with respect to any one of the Investment Funds result in a short term liquidity deficiency for that Investment Fund because of delays in settlement of securities transactions, the Trustee shall cause that Investment Fund to borrow the needed assets from the Money Market Fund. Upon settlement of the transactions, the borrowing Investment Fund shall repay the amount of assets borrowed, together with the interest that would have accrued on such assets had they remained in the Money Market Fund. Borrowing from the Money Market Fund shall be suspended, and following a suspension shall be resumed, at such time(s) as the Trustee determines is prudent.

(b) Settlement Rule. If borrowing from the Money Market Fund pursuant to Section 6.7(a) is suspended, assets withdrawn from a Fund pursuant to a Participant’s transfer request shall not be reinvested in the Investment Fund(s) requested by the Participant until the settlement of the withdrawal actually occurs, or at such earlier date as the Trustee determines is prudent.

(c) Significant Business or Market Distress. In the event of significant business or market distress affecting one or all of the Investment Funds, the Company, the Committee, or the Trustee may, as any of them deems prudent, temporarily impose the Settlement Rule set forth in Section 6.7(b) above and/or temporarily suspend transfers by Participants between and among the Investment Funds.

(d) Liability for Loss. To the extent not prohibited by ERISA, neither the Company, the Committee, the Association, the Trustee, nor any other person shall be liable for any loss that may result from actions taken, or failures to act, pursuant to this Section 6.7.

6.8 Investment in UAL Stock Fund.

(a) A Participant may direct investment in the UAL Stock Fund only by transferring a specified dollar amount from the Money Market Fund.

(b) The Participant is responsible for assuring that adequate assets are available in his or her Money Market Fund investment. A Participant’s transfer of funds to the Money Market Fund will be governed by Sections 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4, including the imposition of a transfer fee.

(c) If the dollar amount the Participant specifies to be invested in the UAL Stock Fund is less than the actual value of the Participant’s Money Market Fund investment, then the request will not be processed.

(d) An investment in the UAL Stock Fund may be made only by transferring assets from the Participant’s Regular Contribution Account and Rollover Contribution Account that are invested in the Money Market Fund. Incoming contributions may not be allocated to the UAL Stock Fund.

(e) Participants’ directions to transfer assets (from the Money Market Fund) into the UAL Stock Fund will be acted upon daily. There will be a five-day settlement period for all purchases into the UAL Stock Fund. Only after the settlement of a purchase may a Participant transfer out of the UAL Stock Fund.

(f) A Participant’s directions to transfer assets out of the UAL Stock Fund may be given daily. Proceeds from the sales of a Participant’s interest in the UAL Stock Fund, less all transaction costs, will be transferred directly to the Money Market Fund, effective on, and at the value received in, the settlement of such sales (normally occurring five days after the sale). Such sales may occur over more than one day. Only after the settlement of a sale may a Participant transfer the proceeds of the sale from the Money Market Fund to another fund.

(g) The recordkeeper will provide a written confirmation of the Participant’s directions to transfer into or out of the UAL Stock Fund in the same manner as provided in Section 6.4(b).

(h) Purchases and holdings of UAL Stock under this Plan and under any other retirement or stock purchase plans sponsored by the Company or UAL Corporation for the accounts of all Pilots as a group in all of such plans may not, at any time after January 12, 1995, exceed 10% of all UAL Stock that is then issued and outstanding. If the aggregate of all Participant directions under this Plan for one month would cause this limit to be exceeded, each such Participant’s transfer from the Money Market Fund into the UAL Stock Fund will be reduced on a proportionate basis so as not to exceed the limit. The amount not available for transfer because of the limit will be transferred to the UAL Stock Fund in a later month when first permitted by the limit, unless the Participant directs otherwise.

(i) The Company reserves the right to suspend transfers into the UAL Stock Fund at any time in its sole discretion.

(a) Upon a Participant’s Termination of Employment, other than on account of death, he or she may elect either of the following:

(i) Immediate distribution of his or her Accounts, in accordance with Sections 7.3 and 7.4; or

(ii) Deferred distribution of his or her Accounts. A Participant who elects to defer distribution may defer the distribution indefinitely. At any time (and from time to time) thereafter, he or she may elect, in accordance with Sections 7.3 and 7.4, to commence receipt of his or her benefits in a form described at Section 7.3. A Participant who defers distribution of his or her Accounts will continue to have the right to direct the investment of his or her Accounts in accordance with Section 6. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Participant who elects to defer the distribution of his or her Accounts will receive not less than the minimum required distributions under Section 7.3(c), commencing not later than April 1 following the later of the calendar year in which he or she attains age 70 1/2, or the calendar year in which he or she has a Termination of Employment.

(b) If a Participant dies before the payment of his or her benefits has begun, his or her Accounts shall be paid pursuant to Section 7.6 if the Participant was single, or pursuant to Section 7.5 if he or she was married. If a Participant dies before the payment of his or her benefits has begun, his or her benefits must be distributed to his or her Beneficiary over a period not exceeding the greatest of: (i) five years from the death of the Participant; (ii) in the case of payments to a designated Beneficiary other than the Participant’s Spouse, the life or life expectancy of such Beneficiary, provided payments begin within one year of the Participant’s death; or (iii) in the case of payments to the Participant’s Spouse the life or life expectancy of such Spouse, provided payments begin by the date the Participant would have attained age 70 1/2, or if he or she dies while employed with the Company or an Affiliate after that date, beginning on the date of his or her death. The life expectancy of a Participant, his or her Spouse, or his or her designated Beneficiary shall be determined in accordance with actuarial tables adopted by the Committee for this purpose.

7.3 Forms of Distribution.

(a) Subject to the conditions and the limitations set forth in Section 7.4 and in Section 7.8, a Participant whose Accounts are to be distributed pursuant to Section 7.2(a) may direct the Plan to make distribution in any one of the following forms:

(i) Lump sum. As elected by the Participant, the lump sum may be paid, either by check to be sent to the address designated by the Participant, or by wire transfer to the trustee, custodian, or other financial institution (including an IRA trustee or custodian) designated by the Participant.

(ii) Immediate Annuity. The Committee shall arrange for a nontransferable, immediate annuity contract to be purchased by the Plan from a major insurance company selected by the Committee providing an annuity benefit in any form elected by the Participant that is available from such life insurance company and that is available under the Pilot Pension Plan.

(iii) Periodic Distributions. Under this option, a Participant may elect to establish a schedule of substantially equal periodic distributions. The schedule must designate (A) the amount of the distributions and (B) whether the distributions will be made monthly, quarterly, semiannually, or annually. Each periodic distribution will be made on the 12th day of a month (or the next Business Day): each month, if monthly; in March, June, September, and December, if quarterly; in June and December, if semiannually; and in December, if annually. Each periodic distribution will be made pro rata from all Investment Funds except for the UAL Stock Fund, which will be paid only after the Participant’s interests in all other Investment Funds are exhausted. A Participant’s request to initiate, change, or stop periodic distributions will be made in the manner required by the recordkeeper and is subject to the requirement of Section 7.4. If it is an initial distribution, it must be sent to the Committee; otherwise it must be sent directly to the recordkeeper.

(iv) Partial Distributions. A Participant may elect to receive a distribution of a portion of his or her Account balance in a single sum. He or she must designate the amount of the distribution to be made which may be no less than $3,000. All partial distributions will be paid out in the following order:

(A) Pre-1987 Participant Voluntary Contributions.

(B) Pre-1987 mandatory after-tax contributions in the Regular Contribution Account.

(C) Post-1986 Participant Voluntary Contributions and earnings on pre- and post 1987 Voluntary Contributions.

(D) Elective Deferral Contributions and earnings.

Original     January 1, 2002


(F) Company contributions and earnings, except for the UAL Stock Fund.

(G) Company contributions and earnings from the UAL Stock Fund.

A Participant who elects a partial distribution described at clause (iv) may thereafter elect additional partial distributions of his or her Account balance or may elect that the balance of his or her Accounts be paid in a form described at clause (i), (ii) or (iii). In the case of a Participant who elects a periodic distribution (described in clause (iii)), the periodic distribution amount shall be increased to the extent, and at such times, necessary to satisfy the minimum distribution rules of Code Section 401(a)(9). An election to receive benefits in a form described at clause (i), (ii) or (iii) shall apply to the entire balance in the Participant’s Accounts at the time of the election, provided, however, that a Participant who elects a form of distribution described at clause (iii), above, may, subject to the Spousal consent requirements of Section 7.4 elect to cease receiving periodic distributions and receive another distribution method in accordance with the foregoing.

A Participant’s election of one or more of the forms of distribution under paragraph (a) must be made in the form required by the Committee and at such time before the date payment is to be made or commenced as the Committee may determine. Each such election of a form of payment shall contain such information as the Committee may require to determine the amount of the Participant’s elected form of monthly benefit.

(b) If the Participant has not filed an election with the Committee, then his or her benefits shall be paid to him or her in the form of a Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity.

(c) With respect to distributions made on or after December 1, 2001, the Plan will apply the minimum distribution requirements of Code Section 401(a)(9) in accordance with the regulations under Code Section 401(a)(9) that were proposed in January, 2001, notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, until the effective date of final regulations or such other date specified in guidance published by the IRS.

7.4 Requirements for Annuity Forms of Payment.

(a) If a Participant is eligible to receive a distribution under Section 7.2, 7.14 or 7.15 then, in lieu of any other form and amount of benefit payment provided by the applicable Section, his or her benefit will be paid in the form of a Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity unless before such date the Participant elects in writing not to have his or her benefits paid by such method and his or her Spouse consents to such election in the manner described below.

(b) Any election permitted under this Section shall be made in writing and in such form as may be required by the Committee. The Committee shall furnish each married Participant at least 30, and not more than 90, days before a Participant’s Annuity Starting Date with a written explanation of the terms and conditions of the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity form of payment; the Participant’s right to make, and the effect of, an election not to have his or her benefits paid in such form; the requirement of spousal consent to such an

 

2002 Restated PDAP   7-3   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


election; the Participant’s right to make, and the effect of, a revocation of such election; and a general description of the material features and the relative values of the optional forms of benefit available under the Plan. Any such election or revocation thereof must be in writing on a form provided by the Committee and signed by the Participant. The election may be made and revoked by the Participant at any time during the 90-day period ending on his or her Annuity Starting Date. An election not to have his or her benefits paid in the form of a Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity will be effective only if the Participant’s Spouse consents to the election in writing, such election designates a Beneficiary (or a form of benefits) that may not be changed without the Spouse’s consent (or the consent of the Spouse expressly permits designations of Beneficiaries or forms or payment by the Participant without any requirement of further consent by the Spouse), the Spouse’s consent acknowledges the effect of the Participant’s election, and such consent is witnessed by a notary public. Distribution must start no earlier than 30 days after the notice described above is given, except that distribution may start less than 30 days but at least 7 days after the notice described above is given if the Committee clearly informs the Participant that he or she has a right to a period of at least 30 days after receiving the notice to consider the decision of whether or not to elect a particular optional form of distribution and the Participant, after receiving the notice, affirmatively elects a distribution. If the net credit balances in the Participant’s Accounts do not exceed $5,000, PAWPAC shall direct the Trustee to distribute the net credit balances in one lump sum rather than purchase an annuity.

(c) If a Participant elects a distribution in the periodic form described at Section 7.3(a)(iii) above, his or her Annuity Starting Date shall be the first day of the first period for which a periodic distribution is made. If his or her Spouse consents to the payment of his or her benefit in such periodic form in accordance with Section 7.4(b), above, no spousal consent to subsequent periodic distributions in the form and amount elected is required. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Participant may request that his or her entire Account balance be paid in a series of irregular partial distributions of his or her benefit (described in Section 7.3(a)(iv)) and waive the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity form of payment with respect to his or her entire Account balance, provided that the Participant executes a written waiver that provides that the Participant waives the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity form for the initial and all future distributions and that the Participant’s Spouse consents to such waiver of the Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity for the first and all later irregular partial distributions. Thereafter, no spousal consent will be required with respect to later partial distributions.

7.5 Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity Requirement. Notwithstanding anything contained in the Plan to the contrary, the following provisions of this Section 7.5 shall apply in the case of the death of a married Participant prior to the commencement of his or her benefit payments:

(a) Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity Benefit. If a married Participant dies after August 22, 1984 and before commencement of the distribution of the balances in his or her Accounts under the Plan, 50% of the balances in his or her Accounts will be distributed to his or her Surviving Spouse in the form of a Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity unless the Surviving Spouse has either waived the right to such annuity under paragraph (c) below, is paid a lump sum pursuant to paragraph (d) below, or has elected an alternate form of distribution pursuant to paragraph (e) below. The remaining 50% of the balances in the Participant’s

Original     January 1, 2002


Accounts at his or her death that is not used to provide the Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity under this paragraph shall be distributed to the Participant’s designated Beneficiary under Section 7.6.

(b) Waiver of Spouse’s Benefits. By writing filed with the Committee, a Participant may elect to waive the Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity at any time during the period beginning on the latest of the earlier of the first day of the Plan Year in which the Participant attains age 35 years or the date the Participant’s employment is terminated, and the Participant’s date of hire, and ending on the earlier of the date benefit payments to the Participant commence and the date of the Participant’s death. An election under this paragraph shall not be effective unless the Participant’s Spouse consents to the election in writing, such election designates a Beneficiary (or a form of benefits) that may not be changed without the Spouse’s consent (or the consent of the Spouse expressly permits designations by the Participant without any requirement of further consent by the Spouse), the Spouse’s consent acknowledges the effect of the Participants election, and such consent is witnessed by a notary public. The Committee shall provide each Participant during the Participant’s “notice period” (as defined below) with a written explanation of the terms and conditions of the Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity, the Participant’s right to make, and the effect of, an election to waive the Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity, the requirement of spousal consent to such a waiver and the Participant’s right to make, and the effect of, a revocation of such a waiver. A Participant’s “notice period” shall mean one of the following periods as applies in his or her case:

(i) The period beginning on the first day of the Plan Year in which the Participant attains age 32 years and ending with the close of the Plan Year in which the Participant attains age 35 years.

(ii) If the Participant is hired after he or she has attained age 32 years, the three year period beginning on the first day of the first Plan Year for which he or she is a Participant.

(iii) If the Participant terminates employment prior to attaining age 32 years, the one-year period beginning on the date his or her employment terminates.

(iv) If the Participant had attained age 34 years by August 23, 1984, the period beginning on such date and ending on December 31, 1985.

(c) Payment. Payment of the Surviving Spouse’s benefits under this Section 7.5 shall commence as of the first day of the month coincident with or next following the date of the Participant’s death and shall end with the month in which the Participant’s Spouse dies provided, that the Surviving Spouse may elect to commence payment of the Qualified Pre-Retirement survivor Annuity, as of any month thereafter, but no later than the month in which the Participant would have attained age 62.

(d) Cashout of Small Amounts. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 7.5, if on the date benefit payments to a deceased Participant’s Surviving Spouse are to begin under this Section 7.5, the portion of the Participant’s Account balances to be used for the

purchase of the Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity does not exceed $5,000 or does exceed $5,000 but the Participant’s Surviving Spouse consents in writing, the Committee will direct that such benefits be paid in the form of a lump sum distribution.

(e) Surviving Spouse’s Election of Optional Form. A Surviving Spouse may elect, in lieu of the Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity, to receive the value of such Qualified Pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity in either of the following:

(i) Immediate distribution of his or her Accounts, in a form described in Section 7.3.

(ii) Deferred distribution of his or her Accounts. A Surviving Spouse who defers distribution may defer distribution indefinitely, subject to paragraphs (b) and (c) of Section 7.2. At any time (and from time to time) thereafter, he or she may elect to commence receipt of his or her benefits in a form described in Section 7.3.

If a Surviving Spouse elects (i) or (ii) above, the Accounts will be maintained in the Surviving Spouse’s name and the Surviving Spouse must direct investment of the Accounts in accordance with Section 6.

7.6 Payments to Beneficiary.

(a) The balances in a Participant’s Accounts that are not distributed under the provisions of Sections 7.2, 7.4, or 7.5 shall be distributed to the Participant’s Beneficiary.

(b) Each Participant and Surviving Spouse maintaining Accounts under the Plan, from time to time, by signing a form approved by the Committee, may designate a Beneficiary to whom his or her Accounts are to be paid if he or she dies before he or she receives all of his or her Accounts. Each Participant and Surviving Spouse, from time to time, may change his or her designation of Beneficiary. A Beneficiary designation form will be effective only when the form is filed with the Committee while the Participant (or, as applicable, Surviving Spouse) is alive and will cancel all Beneficiary forms previously filed with the Committee.

(c) Upon the dissolution of marriage (no matter when occurring) of a Participant who dies after July 11, 1994, any designation of the Participant’s former Spouse as a Beneficiary will be treated as though the Participant’s former Spouse had predeceased the Participant, unless (i) the Participant executes another Beneficiary designation that complies with paragraph (b) and that clearly names such former Spouse as a Beneficiary, or (ii) a court order presented to the Committee before distribution on behalf of the Participant explicitly requires the Participant to continue to maintain the former Spouse as his or her Beneficiary, or that such former Spouse be treated as a Surviving Spouse.

(d) If the Participant is not survived by his or her designated Beneficiary, if his or her designated Beneficiary disclaims benefits under the Plan, or if he or she fails to designate a Beneficiary, the Participant’s Beneficiary shall be:

(i) The Participant’s Surviving Spouse.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   7-6   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


(ii) If subparagraph (i) does not apply, the Participant’s surviving child or children, by blood or adoption. If the Participant’s Beneficiary is two or more of his or her children determined in accordance with this subparagraph (ii), the amount shall be divided into equal shares among such children, and each child shall be entitled to receive payment in any form that the Participant would have been able to elect under Section 7.3.

(iii) If subparagraphs (i) and (ii) do not apply, the Participant’s estate.

(e) A Surviving Spouse maintaining Accounts under the Plan may designate another Beneficiary to receive the balance of the Surviving Spouse’s Accounts upon the Surviving Spouse’s death, in which case, the Accounts will be paid to the Beneficiary of the Surviving Spouse in the form of an immediate lump sum. A Beneficiary other than the Participant’s Surviving Spouse shall not be permitted to designate another Beneficiary to receive benefits under the Plan upon such Beneficiary’s death. Upon the death of a Beneficiary (other than the Participant’s Surviving Spouse) in whose name Accounts are maintained under the Plan, any amounts remaining in such Accounts shall be paid to the Participant’s next succeeding Beneficiary determined in accordance with paragraphs (b) through (d) above.

(f) The Participant’s Beneficiary other than the Participant’s Surviving Spouse will be entitled to receive payment of the Participant’s Account balance in any form permitted under Section 7.3(a), subject to the requirements of Section 7.2(b) and (c).

(g) A Beneficiary who is the Participant’s Surviving Spouse may elect either of the following:

(i) Immediate distribution of his or her Accounts, in a form described in Section 7.3.

(ii) Deferred distribution of his or her Accounts. A Surviving Spouse who defers distribution may defer distribution indefinitely, subject to paragraphs (b) and (c) of Section 7.2. At any time (and from time to time) thereafter, he or she may elect to commence receipt of his or her benefits in a form described in Section 7.3.

If a surviving Spouse elects (i) or (ii) above, the Accounts will be maintained in the Surviving Spouse’s name and the Surviving Spouse must direct investment of the Accounts in accordance with Section 6.

7.7 Missing Participants or Beneficiaries. In the event the Committee, after reasonable, good faith effort, is unable to locate a Participant or Beneficiary who is required to receive a payment and the Participant or Beneficiary fails to claim his or her benefits or make his or her whereabouts known to the Committee within six years after such efforts to locate the Participant or Beneficiary, the Account will be forfeited and the forfeited amount will be applied toward the amount of future Company contributions under Section 4.1. The forfeited amount will be restored to the Accounts from which the amount was forfeited, unadjusted for interest or any change in value occurring after the forfeiture, upon the Participant’s or Beneficiary’s claim for the benefit. The Company will contribute the amount required to restore the Accounts.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   7-7   Effective Beginning

7.8 Payments to Minors and Other Persons Under Legal Disability. Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Plan, if, in the Committee’s opinion, any payee of a Plan benefit is under a legal disability or is in any way incapacitated so as to be unable to manage his or her financial affairs, the Committee may direct payment to a relative or friend of such person for his or her benefit until valid claim for payment is made by a guardian, conservator or other person legally charged with the care of his or her person or of his or her estate. Thereafter, any Plan benefit to which such payee is entitled shall be paid to such guardian, conservator or other person legally charged with the care of his or her person or of his or her estate.

7.9 Benefits May Not Be Assigned or Alienated. The interests of Participants and other persons entitled to benefits under the Plan are not subject to the claims of their creditors and may not be voluntarily or involuntarily anticipated, assigned, alienated or subject to attachment, garnishment, levy, execution or other legal or equitable process except as may be required by federal or state tax withholding provisions or pursuant to a qualified domestic relations order as defined in Code Section 414(p) and Section 206(d)(3) of ERISA.

7.10 Commencement of Distributions. Except as provided below in this Section, distribution of a Participant’s Accounts shall be made (or installment payments shall commence) as soon as practicable after the occurrence of the event requiring the distribution as provided in Section 7.2, but not later than 60 days after (a) the end of the Plan Year in which such event occurs, or (b) such other date on which the amount of the payment is first reasonably ascertainable by the Committee. The amount of the distribution shall be based on the values of the Participant’s Accounts as of the close of business on the last Business Day immediately preceding (i) the date of actual distribution, with respect to lump sums, or (ii) the date of transfer to an insurance company, with respect to annuities. Notwithstanding the foregoing, distribution of the balances in a Participant’s Accounts will be made (or installment payments will commence) by April 1 of the calendar year next following the calendar year in which the Participant attains age 70 1/2, or if later, his or her termination of employment with the Company and its Affiliates. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of Sections 7.14 or 7.15, or Section 7, if the total nonforfeitable balances in the Participant’s Accounts is greater than $5,000, to the extent required by law, no distribution or withdrawal of such balances will be made before the earlier of the date of the Participant’s death or the date the Participant attains age 62 years, unless the Participant and his or her Spouse, if any, and if required by Section 7.4, otherwise consent.

7.11 Distribution of QDRO Account.

(a) Distribution of a QDRO Account shall be made pursuant to the qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) referred to in Section 5.1(e), provided that such order does not conflict with the terms of the Plan. Unless otherwise provided by the QDRO, the alternate payee may request that the QDRO Account be distributed (or that distributions from the QDRO Account begin) on any date during the period beginning with the date the QDRO Account is established and ending on April 1 of the year following the calendar year in which the Participant (from whose Account assets were transferred to establish the QDRO Account) attains or would have attained at 70 1/2. The alternate payee may elect in writing any form of distribution permitted under Section 7.3; provided, however, that an alternate payee is not subject to the requirements of Section 7 regarding payment in the form of a Qualified Joint and Survivor Annuity or Qualified pre-Retirement Survivor Annuity.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   7-8   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


(b) Upon the alternate payee’s death, any amounts remaining in the QDRO Account will be distributed to the alternate payee’s Beneficiary (designated by the alternate payee in accordance with Section 7.6(c) and (d)) in a lump sum, or in a combination of a lump sum and an annuity; provided that if the alternate payee’s Beneficiary is his or her estate determined in accordance with Section 7.6(d)(iii), the QDRO Account will be paid only in a lump sum. An alternate payee’s Beneficiary may not elect any other form of distribution and may not maintain an account balance under the Plan beyond the period of administration needed to effect such distribution(s) and/or annuity purchase(s).

7.12 Direct Rollover. To the extent required by Code Section 401(a)(31), the Participant (or a Beneficiary who is the Surviving Spouse) will have the right to elect to have any distribution that constitutes an “eligible rollover distribution” (as defined in Code Section 401(a)(31)(C)) paid directly to an “eligible retirement plan” (as defined in Code Section 401(a)(31)(D)) specified by such Participant (or spousal Beneficiary). Notwithstanding the foregoing, an “eligible rollover distribution” includes, until January 1, 2000, a distribution made on account of a financial hardship. If a Participant (or spousal Beneficiary) fails to make the foregoing election, he or she will be deemed not to have made such election. Any such direct rollover shall be subject to such rules and procedures as the Committee, with the written consent of the Association, may adopt from time to time, including rules relating to whether such direct rollover may be made in-kind and rules relating to the investment funds from which such direct rollover may be made.

7.13 Delay in Payments. Should payment of any benefit be postponed to an extent which the Pension Board deems to be substantial, by reason of a court order or by reason of a dispute as to entitlement, the assets providing such benefit shall be maintained in the Accounts (or held in some other form if pursuant to court order) pending final resolution, and the benefit payments shall reflect the gains or losses of such interim experience or investment.

7.14 Distribution of Elective Deferrals on Account of Financial Hardship.

(a) Hardship Distributions. Distribution of Elective Deferrals (but not earnings thereon) may be made to a Participant in the event of financial hardship. For this purpose, financial hardship is defined as an immediate and heavy financial need of the Participant where such distribution is necessary to meet such need because the Participant lacks other available resources. Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (b), an “immediate” need is one arising within three months after the hardship application is filed. A “heavy” need is judged on the magnitude of the need compared to the Participant’s ability to meet the need. To qualify for a financial hardship distribution, a Participant must file a written application therefor in a form acceptable to the Committee and receive approval for such a distribution. A hardship distribution is subject to the requirements of Sections 7.4 and 7.5, provided, however, that no financial hardship distribution shall be made unless the Participant and his or her Spouse, if any, consent (in accordance with those subsections) to such distribution in the form of a single sum payment.

 

2002 Restated PDAP   7-9   Effective Beginning
Original     January 1, 2002


(b) Special Rules.

(i) The following are automatically considered immediate and heavy financial needs:

(A) deductible medical expenses (within the meaning of Code Section 213(d)) of the Participant or the Participant’s Spouse, children, or dependents (as defined in Code Section 152);

(B) the purchase (excluding mortgage payments) of a principal residence for the Participant;

(C) payment of tuition (plus related educational fees, and room and board expenses) for the next 12 months of post-secondary education for the Participant or the Participant’s spouse, children, or dependents (as defined in Code Section 152); or

(D) the need to prevent the eviction of the Participant from, or a foreclosure on the mortgage of, the Participant’s principal residence.

(ii) A distribution will be considered necessary to satisfy an immediate and heavy financial need of the Participant only if the distribution does not exceed the immediate and heavy need (including taxes and penalties imposed on the distribution amount) and if (A) or (B) is true:

(A) The Participant submits a signed statement in a form acceptable to the Committee representing that the need cannot be satisfied in any of the following ways:

(1) through reimbursement or compensation by insurance or otherwise;

Pilot Disability Income Plan), a loan will be made to the Participant from his or her vested Accounts under the Plan, subject to the further provisions of this Section 12. A Participant’s application must be made on such form or through such medium as the Committee may require. The Trustee will deliver the loan proceeds to the Participant by one of the following methods, as elected by the Participant: by wire to the Participant’s account at a financial institution, or by check payable to the Participant, via ground or overnight mail. A Participant may have only one loan outstanding at a time, and must wait at least 12 months after one loan is paid in full before receiving another loan from the Plan.

12.2 Amount of Loan. The amount of the loan will be designated by the Participant as an even multiple of $1,000, up to $50,000; provided, that no loan will be made to a Participant if, immediately after such loan, the sum of the outstanding balances (including principal and interest) of all loans made to him or her under this Plan and under any other qualified retirement plans maintained by the Company or Affiliate would exceed the lesser of:

(a) $50,000, reduced by the excess, if any, of (i) the highest outstanding balance of all loans to the Participant from the plans during the one-year period ending on the day immediately before the date on which the loan is made, over (ii) the outstanding balance of loans from the plans to the Participant on the date on which such loan is made; or

(b) one-half of the value of the total vested balance of the Participant’s Accounts under the Plan as of the date the loan is made.

12.3 Interest Rate Charged on Loan. Interest will be charged on a Plan loan at an annual rate equal to 1% above the prime rate as reported in the Wall Street Journal on the business day immediately preceding the effective date of the Participant’s request for a loan.

12.4 Fee for Loan. An administrative fee for each loan from the Plan will be deducted from the Participant’s Accounts to cover all administrative expenses in connection with the loan, including the Trustee’s cost to send the check for the loan proceeds by overnight delivery. The fee will be deducted from the Participant’s Accounts invested in the Money Market Fund, in the same order as a loan depletes the Participant’s Accounts invested in the Money Market Fund under Section 12.5. The amount of the fee will be: (a) $90, effective as of the date loans are first made available under the Plan, or (b) such other amount as the Company and the Association mutually determine, effective as of the date (which may not be retroactive) specified in communications to the Participants. This fee is not included in the amount loaned or in the maximum loan amount set forth in Section 12.2. No fee will be charged unless a loan is actually made.

12.5 Order of Depletion of Accounts for Loans. Loans will be funded by depleting a Participant’s Accounts under the Plan invested in the Money Market Fund in the following order:

(a) Company contributions and earnings in the Regular Contribution Account;

(d) Post-1986 Voluntary Contributions and earnings on pre-1987 and post-1986 Voluntary Contributions;

(e) Pre-1997 Participant mandatory after-tax contributions in the Regular Contribution Account.

If a Participant’s loan application designates a loan amount which, together with the fee required under Section 12.4, cannot be funded in full from the Participant’s interest in his or her Accounts invested in the Money Market Fund, in accordance with the order of depiction set forth above, such loan application will be denied. No loan will be funded from a Participant’s interest invested in any Investment Fund other than the Money Market Fund.

12.6 Promissory Note; Security for Loan. A loan will be evidenced by the Participant’s written promissory note to the Trustee, who will hold the promissory note. The note shall constitute an enforceable agreement and shall set forth the loan’s interest rate (including the loan origination fee, if any), repayment amortization schedule, and such other terms and conditions (which are not inconsistent with this Section 12) as the Committee may determine. The Participant’s obligation to repay a loan (or loans) from the Plan shall be secured by 50% of the Participant’s vested Accounts under the Plan. A Participant who is married may obtain a loan only if his or her application is accompanied by the written, notarized consent of the Participant’s spouse to the use of the Participant’s Accounts as security for the loan.

12.7 Loan Repayments.

(a) Period of Loan Repayment. The Participant shall designate the number of months to constitute the period of repayment of the loan. The minimum period a Participant may designate is 6 months. The maximum period a Participant may designate is (i) 60 months from the date the loan is made, or (ii) 180 months from the date the loan is made, for a loan used to acquire a dwelling which within a reasonable period of time will be used as the Participant’s principal residence. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a loan shall become due and payable within 60 days following the Participant’s Termination of Employment from the Company for any reason. For purposes of the preceding sentence, a Participant receiving benefits from the United Air Lines, Inc. Pilot Disability Income Plan will not be deemed to have incurred a Termination of Employment.

(b) Level Amortization. The amount of each loan repayment shall be determined by PAWPAC so as to result in substantially equal repayments, to be made no less frequently than quarterly, of principal and interest over the loan repayment period.

Original     January 1, 2002


(c) Accounting. Each loan repayment shall reduce the outstanding balance of that loan and be credited to the Participant’s Account or Accounts which were depicted to fund the loan.

(d) Investment. Each loan repayment shall be invested in the Investment Funds in accordance with the Participant’s current investment directions under Section 6.2(a), applicable to the Account or Accounts to which the loan repayment is credited. A Participant without current investment directions applicable to an Account to which all or any portion of the amount of a loan repayment is to be credited shall be deemed to have directed investment of such amount in the Money Market Fund.

(e) Method of Repayment. Generally, loan repayments will be made by payroll deduction for each payroll period. However, during any period when payroll deduction is not possible or is not permitted under applicable law, repayment will be made by personal check.

(f) Loan Repayments During Leaves of Absence.

(i) Military Leave of Absence. The obligation to make loan repayments shall be suspended during the period a Participant is on an approved leave of absence from the Company for service in the uniformed services (as defined in chapter 43 of title 38, United States Code). With respect to such a Participant who returns to service with the Company prior to expiration of the Participant’s federal veterans’ reemployment rights, loan repayments shall resume in an amount which the Committee determines is necessary to provide for level amortization of the entire amount then outstanding on the loan, over a loan repayment period equal to the original loan repayment period extended by the length of the military leave, or such longer period as may be allowed by applicable law. With respect to such a Participant who fails to return to service with the Company prior to expiration of the Participant’s federal veterans’ reemployment rights, the loan repayment period shall be accelerated in accordance with paragraph (a) above.

(ii) Other Leave of Absence. The obligation to make loan repayments shall be suspended, for up to one year, during the period a Participant is on an approved leave of absence from the Company other than for service in the uniformed services, if such leave of absence is either without pay or at a rate of pay (after income and employment tax withholding) which is less than the amount of the loan repayments. Loan repayments which have been suspended shall resume upon the earlier of the expiration of the approved leave or the expiration of one year of approved leave. If loan payments have been suspended, the Participant may elect to extend the original loan repayment period, but not beyond the maximum loan repayment period which the Participant could have designated at the time the loan was made originally. When loan repayments resume after a suspension, they shall be in an amount, as elected by the Participant, equal to: (A) the amount determined by the Plan administrator necessary to amortize the entire amount then outstanding on the loan, on a level basis, over the remaining loan repayment period, or (B) the same amount as had been payable under the terms of the original loan, with the entire outstanding obligation on the loan due and payable at the end of the loan repayment period. With respect to a Participant who fails to return to service with the Company upon expiration of an approved leave of absence, the loan repayment period shall be accelerated in accordance with paragraph (a) above.

Original     January 1, 2002


(g) Prepayment. The entire loan balance may be prepaid, in full, without penalty, at any time at least six months after the date the loan is made.

(h) Default on Loan. If any loan repayment installment is not paid when due, the Participant shall be allowed a grace period, beginning on the day after the date the loan repayment installment was due and ending on the last day of the calendar quarter following the calendar quarter within which the loan repayment installment (including repayment due upon acceleration) was due, within which to make such overdue loan repayment. If such overdue loan repayment installment is not paid upon expiration of the grace period, then the entire outstanding obligation on the loan shall be in default. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan to the contrary, as of the date of such default, the Trustee shall apply an amount from the Participant’s Accounts, up to 50% of the Participant’s vested Accounts, in satisfaction of the entire outstanding obligation on the loan, but only to the extent such vested interest (or portion thereof) is then distributable under the terms of the Plan. If necessary to satisfy the entire outstanding obligation, such application of the Participant’s vested interest may be executed in a series of actions as amounts credited to the Participant’s Account become distributable.

12.8 Administration of Loans. Loans shall be granted or denied solely on the basis of whether the Participant’s application meets the requirements and limitations set forth in this Section 12. There shall be no discretion to grant or deny a loan application. The Company and the Association may jointly establish uniform procedures (not inconsistent with this Section 12) for applying for a loan, which procedures shall be communicated to Participants in writing.

Pilot Directed Account Plan

(2002 Restatement)

By virtue and in exercise of the amending power reserved to United Air Lines, Inc. (the “Company”) by Section 11.1 of the United Airlines Pilot Directed Account Plan – 2002 Restatement (the “Plan”) and pursuant to the authority delegated to the undersigned officer of the Company by resolution of the Board of Directors of the Company adopted November 6, 2001, the Plan is hereby amended as follows:

1. The amendments made by paragraphs 10, 11, 12, and 13, below, are adopted to reflect certain provisions of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 (“EGTRRA”), are intended as good faith compliance with the requirements of EGTRRA and are to be construed in accordance with EGTRRA and guidance issued thereunder.

2. The definition of “Earnings” under Section 1.5 is amended and restated, effective January 1, 2002, to read as follows:

Earnings. The term ‘Earnings’ with respect to any Participant means the total cash compensation (determined before deduction for the Participant’s Elective Deferral contributions under this Plan, the Participant’s elective contributions to the United Air Lines, Inc. Pilots’ Flexible Spending Program or any other pre-tax earnings deferral elections pursuant to a qualified cash or deferred arrangement, cafeteria plan or Section 132(f)(4) transportation fringe benefit plan) paid to him or her by the Company (whether paid before or after retirement, disability, death, or other termination of employment), with respect to services he or she performed while classified as a Pilot and performed after becoming a Participant in accordance with Section 2.1, provided, however, that, Earnings will not include: (i) only for the purpose of making Elective Deferral Contributions under Section 4.2 vacation pay received after the Participant’s termination of employment with the Company; (ii) contributions made or deemed to have been made by the Company on behalf of the Participant to any qualified or non-qualified deferred compensation plan (except contributions made by reason of the Participant’s earnings reduction election under a qualified cash or deferred arrangement) or other employee benefit plan (including but not limited to the Pilot Disability Income Plan or any other group disability plan), or any distribution or payment made or deemed to have been made to or on behalf of the Participant under any such plan; (iii) Company contributions, except contributions made by reason of an earnings reduction election to, or credits under, a Code Section 125 cafeteria plan whether or not received by the Participant in cash; (iv) except as provided under a qualified cash or deferred arrangement maintained by the Company,

compensation, the payment of which is deferred pursuant to an election of the Participant; (v) hiring bonuses or other special payments relating to initiation of employment, moving expenses, relocation allowances, housing allowances, membership costs and dues, fees paid for employment referrals, prizes and awards (other than annual awards), expense reimbursement payments and allowances, pay for time on Furlough, and severance pay or other special payments relating to termination of employment; (vi) any foreign service allowances, goods and services differential, hardship pay, and tax equalization payments paid to a Participant who is designated by the Company as an expatriate, and any other special payments made in connection with such designation; (vii) amounts realized with respect to restricted stock, non-qualified stock options, or stock appreciation rights; and (viii) payments received for lost employer contributions under a qualified retirement plan on account of compensation in excess of the Code Section 401(a)(17) limit.

The annual compensation of each Participant taken into account under the Plan for the Plan Year is limited to $200,000 (or such higher figure that reflects adjustments for changes in the cost of living provided under Code Section 401(a)(17)). If Earnings for any prior Plan Year are taken into account in determining a Participant’s allocations or benefits for the current determination period, the Earnings for such prior Plan Year are subject to the applicable limitation on Earnings in effect for that prior Plan Year. If the period for determining Earnings used in calculating a Participant’s allocation for a Plan Year is fewer than 12 months, other than on account of mid-year commencement or cessation of active participation, the Earnings limitation shall be an amount equal to the $200,000 limitation (as adjusted for cost of living increase) multiplied by the fraction, the numerator of which is the number of months in the short Plan Year, and the denominator of which is 12 months.”

3. Effective April 1, 2002, Section 4.2(a) is amended by changing the maximum annual deferral rate from “50%” to “60%,” and adding the following sentence to the end of such Section:

“For the 2002 Plan Year, elective deferrals for any payroll period after April 1, 2002, may exceed 60% but not more than the deferral percentage established by Plan Rules, provided the Participant’s annual deferral percentage does not exceed 60% for the 2002 Plan Year.”

4. Section 6.1(a)(ii) is amended by adding the word “Fund” to the end of the heading so that it reads “Short Term Bond Fund.”

5. Section 6.1(b)(vi)(F) is amended and restated to read as follows:

“(F) The recapitalization provided for in the Recapitalization Agreement will also result in the issuance by UAL Corporation of cash in

6. Section 6.5 is amended and restated to read as follows:

6.5 Investment of Accounts on Death of Participant. Upon notice to the Company of the death of a Participant or the death of a Surviving Spouse maintaining Accounts under the Plan and a request for distribution, the Company shall notify the Trustee, and shall direct that the balances in the deceased individual’s Accounts that are not already invested in the Money Market Fund be transferred, in full, to the Money Market Fund, where they shall remain until distributed in accordance with the Plan. If a Participant’s Beneficiary elects to maintain Accounts under the Plan following the Participant’s death, then no automatic transfer will be made to the Money Market Fund and the Accounts will be subject to investment direction by the Beneficiary in accordance with Section 6. Accounts automatically transferred to the Money Market Fund pursuant to this Section 6.5 will remain in the Money Market Fund until distributed in accordance with the Plan. The date of transfer to the Money Market Fund shall be the day following notification to the Trustee, and the Accounts shall be valued as of the close of business (a) of the day of notification to the Trustee of the death of the Participant and request for distribution, or (b) of the fifth Business Day following the date of official notification to the Company of the death of the Participant and request for distribution.”

7. Section 7.6(b) is amended and restated to read as follows:

“(b) Each Participant or Beneficiary maintaining Accounts under the Plan, from time to time, by signing a form approved by the Committee, may designate a Beneficiary, or change his or her designation, to whom his or her Accounts are to be paid if he or she dies before he or she receives all of his or her Accounts. A Beneficiary designation form will be effective only when the form is filed with the Committee while the Participant (or, as applicable, the Beneficiary) is alive and will cancel all Beneficiary forms previously filed with the Committee.”

8. Section 7.6(e) is amended and restated to read as follows:

“(e) A Beneficiary maintaining Accounts under the Plan may designate another Beneficiary to receive the balance of the Beneficiary’s Accounts upon such Beneficiary’s death, in which case, the Accounts will be paid to the designated Beneficiary of such Beneficiary in the form of an immediate lump sum. Upon the death of a Beneficiary (other than the Participant’s Beneficiary in whose name Accounts are maintained under the Plan), any amounts remaining in such Accounts shall be paid to the Participant’s next succeeding Beneficiary determined in accordance with paragraphs (b) through (d) above.”

“(f) The Participant’s Beneficiary will be entitled to receive payment of the Participant’s Account balance in any form permitted under Section 7.3(a), subject to the requirements of Section 7.2(b) and (c). If the Beneficiary does not elect an immediate distribution in a lump sum, the Accounts will be maintained in the Beneficiary’s name and the Beneficiary must direct investment of the Accounts in accordance with Section 6.”

10. Section 7.12 is amended by adding the following language to the end of such Section:

“An eligible retirement plan includes an annuity contract described in Code Section 403(b) and an eligible plan under Code Section 457(b) that is maintained by a state, political subdivision of a state, or any agency or instrumentality of a state or political subdivision of a state and that agrees to separately account for amounts transferred into such plan from this Plan. The definition of eligible retirement plan will also apply in the case of a distribution to a surviving spouse, or to a spouse or former spouse who is the alternate payee under a qualified domestic relations order, as defined in Code Section 414(p). No amount that is distributed on account of hardship will be an eligible rollover distribution, and the distributee may not elect to have any portion of such a distribution paid directly to an eligible retirement plan. A portion of a distribution will not fail to be an eligible rollover distribution merely because the portion consists of after-tax employee contributions which are not includible in gross income. However, such portion may be transferred only to an individual retirement account or annuity described in Code Section 408(a) or (b), or to a qualified defined contribution plan described in Code Section 401(a) or 403(a) that agrees to separately account for amounts so transferred, including separately accounting for the portion of such distribution that is includible in gross income and the portion of such distribution that is no includible.”

11. Section 7.14(b)(ii)(B)(3) is amended by changing “12 months” to “six months,” effective for distributions made after September 17, 2001.

12. Section 7.14(b)(ii)(B) is amended by deleting Section 7.14(b)(ii)(B)(4).

13. Section 10.1(b) is amended by adding the following sentence to the end of such Section.

“The compensation limit referred to in this clause (b) will not apply to any contribution for medical benefits after separation from service (within the meaning of Code Section 401(h) or 419A(f)(2) that is otherwise treated as an Annual Addition.”

If such overdue loan repayment installment is not paid upon expiration of the grace period, then the entire outstanding obligation on the loan shall be in default. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan to the contrary, as of the date of such default, the Trustee shall apply an amount from the Participant’s Accounts, up to 50% of the Participant’s vested Accounts, in satisfaction of the entire outstanding obligation on the loan, but only to the extent such vested interest (or portion thereof) is then distributable under the terms of the Plan. If necessary to satisfy the entire outstanding obligation, such application of the Participant’s vested interest may be executed in a series of actions as amounts credited to the Participant’s Account become distributable.”

15. Except as otherwise provided herein, this Second Amendment is effective as of January 1, 2002.

Such catch-up contributions will not be taken into account for purposes of the provisions of the Plan implementing the required limitations of Code sections 402(g)(1)(B) and 415.

For distributions beginning before the Participant’s death, the first Distribution Calendar Year is the calendar year immediately preceding the calendar year which contains the Participant’s Required Beginning Date. For distributions beginning after the Participant’s death, the first Distribution Calendar Year is the calendar year in which distributions are required to begin under Section 7.16(c)(ii).

other Distribution Calendar Years, including the required minimum distribution for the Distribution Calendar Year in which the Participant’s Required Beginning Date occurs, will be made on or before December 31 of that Distribution Calendar Year.

Life Expectancy. ‘Life Expectancy’ means the life expectancy as computed by use of the Single Life Table in section 1.401(a)(9)-9 of the Treasury regulations.

Participant’s Account Balance.

Final    


  (B) If there is a Designated Beneficiary (other than as described in paragraph (A) above), the Participant’s entire interest will be distributed to the Designated Beneficiary by December 31 of the calendar year containing the fifth anniversary of the Participant’s death. This paragraph will apply to all distributions, subject to the Designated Beneficiary’s right to elect to receive distributions over his or her Life Expectancy under Section 7.16(c)(iv) below.

 

  (C) If there is no Designated Beneficiary as of September 30 of the year following the year of the Participant’s death, the Participant’s entire interest will be distributed by December 31 of the calendar year containing the fifth anniversary of the Participant’s death.

For purposes of this Section 7.16(c)(ii) and Section 7.16(e), unless paragraph (D) above applies, distributions are considered to begin on the Participant’s Required Beginning Date. If paragraph (D) applies, distributions are considered to begin on the date distributions are required to begin to the Surviving Spouse under paragraph (A) above. If distributions under an annuity purchased from an insurance company irrevocably commence to the Participant before the Participant’s Required Beginning Date (or to the Participant’s Surviving Spouse before the date distributions are required to begin to the Surviving Spouse under paragraph (A) above), the date distributions are considered to begin is the date distributions actually commence.

 

  (iii)

Forms of Distribution. Unless the Participant’s interest is distributed in the form of an annuity purchased from an insurance company or in a single sum on or before the Required Beginning Date, as of the first Distribution Calendar Year distributions will be made in accordance with Sections 7.16(d) and (e).

  (iv) Election of Life Expectancy Rule. Beneficiaries may elect on an individual basis whether the 5-year rule in Section 7.16(c)(ii) or the life expectancy rule in this Section 7.16(c)(iv) or Section 7.16(e)(ii) of the Plan applies to distributions after the death of a Participant who has a Designated Beneficiary. The election must be made no later than the earlier of September 30 of the calendar year in which distribution would be required to begin under Section 7.16(c)(ii) of the Plan, or by September 30 of the calendar year which contains the fifth anniversary of the Participant’s (or, if applicable, Surviving Spouse’s) death. If neither the Participant nor Beneficiary makes an election under this paragraph, distributions will be made in accordance with Section 7.l6(c)(ii) and Section 7.16(e)(ii) of the Plan. A Designated Beneficiary who is receiving payments under the 5-year rule may make a new election to receive payments under the life expectancy rule until December 31, 2003, provided that all amounts that would have been required to be distributed under the life expectancy rule for all Distribution Calendar Years before 2004 are distributed by the earlier of December 31, 2003 or the end of the 5-year period.

(d) Required Minimum Distributions During Participant’s Lifetime.

Joint and Last Survivor Table set forth in Treas. Reg. Section 1.401(a)(9)-9, using the Participant’s and spouse’s attained ages as of the Participant’s and spouse’s birthdays in the Distribution Calendar Year.

 

  (ii) Lifetime Required Minimum Distributions Continue Through Year of Participant’s Death. Required minimum distributions will be determined under this Section 7.16(d) beginning with the first Distribution Calendar Year and up to and including the Distribution Calendar Year that includes the Participant’s date of death

(e) Required Minimum Distributions After Participant’s Death.

 

  (i) Death On or After Date Distributions Begin.

 

  (A) Participant Survived by Designated Beneficiary. If the Participant dies on or after the date distributions begin and there is a Designated Beneficiary, the minimum amount that will be distributed for each Distribution Calendar Year after the year of the Participant’s death is the quotient obtained by dividing the Participant’s Account Balance by the longer of the remaining Life Expectancy of the Participant or the remaining Life Expectancy of the Participant’s Designated Beneficiary, determined as follows:

 

  (1) The Participant’s remaining Life Expectancy is calculated using the age of the Participant in the year of death, reduced by one for each subsequent year.

 

  (2)

If the Participant’s Surviving Spouse is the Participant’s sole Designated Beneficiary, the remaining Life Expectancy of the Surviving Spouse is calculated for each Distribution Calendar Year after the year of the Participant’s death using the Surviving Spouse’s age as of the spouse’s birthday in that year. For Distribution Calendar Years after the year of the Surviving Spouse’s death, the remaining Life Expectancy of the Surviving Spouse is calculated using the age of the Surviving Spouse as of the spouse’s

Final    


 

birthday in the calendar year of the spouse’s death, reduced by one for each subsequent calendar year.

 

  (3) If the Participant’s Surviving Spouse is not the Participant’s sole Designated Beneficiary, the Designated Beneficiary’s remaining Life Expectancy is calculated using the age of the Beneficiary in the year following the year of the Participant’s death, reduced by one for each subsequent year.

 

  (B) No Designated Beneficiary. If the Participant dies on or after the date distributions begin and there is no Designated Beneficiary as of September 30 of the year after the year of the Participant’s death, the minimum amount that will be distributed for each Distribution Calendar Year after the year of the Participant’s death is the quotient obtained by dividing the Participant’s Account Balance by the Participant’s remaining Life Expectancy calculated using the age of the Participant in the year of death, reduced by one for each subsequent year.

 

  (ii) Death Before Date Distributions Begin.

 

  (A) Participant Survived by Designated Beneficiary. If the Participant dies before the date distributions begin and there is a Designated Beneficiary, and the Designated Beneficiary elects to receive distributions over his or her Life Expectancy, then the minimum amount that will be distributed for each Distribution Calendar Year after the year of the Participant’s death is the quotient obtained by dividing the Participant’s Account Balance by the remaining Life Expectancy of the Participant’s Designated Beneficiary, determined as provided in Section 7.16(e)(i).

 

  (B) No Designated Beneficiary. If the Participant dies before the date distributions begin and there is no Designated Beneficiary as of September 30 of the year following the year of the Participant’s death, distribution of the Participant’s entire interest will be completed by December 31 of the calendar year containing the fifth anniversary of the Participant’s death.

“10.2 Limitations on Allocations; Adjustments. If, for any calendar year, a Participant in this Plan is also a participant in any other qualified defined contribution plan maintained by the Company or an Affiliate, allocations will be made first under this Plan and then under such other defined contribution plan. If a Company or Participant contribution that would otherwise be contributed or allocated to the Participant’s Account would cause the Annual Additions for the calendar year to exceed the limitation under Section 10.1, the amount contributed or allocated will be reduced so that the Annual Additions for the calendar year will equal the maximum amount that may be allocated under Section 10.1. Prior to determining the actual amount of a Participant’s Section 415 Compensation for the calendar year, the Company may determine the maximum amount that may be contributed on behalf of a Participant on the basis of a reasonable estimate of the Participant’s Section 415 Compensation for the calendar year, provided the Company uniformly determines Section 415 Compensation for all Participants similarly situated. As soon as administratively feasible after the end of the calendar year, the maximum amount that may be allocated to a Participant’s Account under Section 10.1 will be determined on the basis of the Participant’s actual Section 415 Compensation for the calendar year. If, as a result of a reasonable error in estimating a Participant’s annual compensation, a reasonable error in determining the amount of Elective Deferrals that may be made with respect to a Participant, or under other limited facts and circumstances that the Internal Revenue Service finds justify the adjustment rules set forth in this Section 10.2, the amount that would otherwise be credited under the Plan on behalf of a Participant for a calendar year that causes the limitation of Section 10.1 to be exceeded, the Company will, to the extent necessary, treat the contributions as follows:

(a) first, refund the Participant’s Voluntary Contributions including any earnings or gains accrued on such contributions;

(b) second, refund the Participant’s Elective Deferrals (other than ‘Catch-up Contributions’ within the meaning of Code section 414(v)), including any earnings on such Elective Deferrals;

(c) third, reduce the Company’s contribution under Section 4.1(e) of this Plan, to be held in a suspense account and reallocated among all Participants, in accordance with Treas. Reg. Sec. 1.415-6(b)(6)(iii) and Section 4.1(e);

 

7th Amendment     Effective Beginning

(d) fourth, reduce the Company’s contributions under Section 4.1(d), to be held in a suspense account and reallocated to the Participant in accordance with Treas. Reg. Section 1.415-6(b)(6)(ii); and

(e) fifth, reduce the Company contributions under Section 4.1(a), to be held in a suspense account and reallocated in accordance with Treas. Reg. Section 1.415-6(b)(6)(ii).”

14. Section 10.3(a) is amended by adding the following language to the end of such Section:

“Notwithstanding the foregoing, ‘Annual Addition’ does not include any Elective Deferrals that are treated as a ‘catch-up contribution’ under Section 4.2(g).”

15. Section 12.5 is amended by redesignating existing Sections 12.5(b) through (e) as Sections 12.5(c) through (f) respectively and inserting the following new Section 12.5(b):

“(b) Contributions to the C Plan Account and earnings in the C Plan Account;”

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this amendment to be executed on its behalf this              day of December, 2005.

Appendix A-2


Exhibit A

AFA Group

Each Qualified Flight Attendant Employee assigned to the AFA Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Shares allocated to the AFA Group determined as follows:

1. Foreign Qualified Flight Attendant Employees. For all Qualified Flight Attendants who are domiciled outside of the United States and who are not entitled to have compensation deferred under a qualified 401(k) plan, Shares that would otherwise be allocable to such Qualified Employees will be held back by the Company for a period not to exceed six months following the Effective Date. At the end of the six month period, such Qualified Flight Attendant Employees will receive a distribution and allocation of their allocable Shares in accordance with Section III.B. of the Plan.

2. Allocation Formula.

(a) Tranche 1. One-third of the Shares allocated to the AFA Group will be allocated among Qualified Flight Attendant Employees on a per capita basis determined by dividing such one-third amount by the number of Qualified Flight Attendant Employees.

(b) Tranche 2. Two-thirds of the Shares allocated to the AFA Group will be allocated among Qualified Flight Attendant Employees based on each Qualified Flight Attendant Employee’s pro rata percentage equal to the ratio of (i) the Qualified Flight Attendant Employee’s Wages for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 30, 2005 to (ii) the total amount of Wages for all Qualified Flight Attendant Employees for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 30, 2005.

 

Exhibit A-1


Exhibit B

ALPA Group

Each Qualified Pilot Employee shall be entitled to receive a portion of the Shares allocated to the ALPA Group (or cash in lieu of such Shares) determined as follows:

1. Furloughs and Recalls. For purposes of this Exhibit B, a “Furloughed Pilot” is any Pilot on the Pilot Seniority List who is reflected as being on Furlough as of May 1, 2003, or who was furloughed subsequent to that date. Subject to adjustment for recalls as hereinafter provided, five per cent (5%) of the Shares allocated to the ALPA Group shall be distributed per capita to those Qualified Pilot Employees who are Furloughed Pilots; provided, however, that any Furloughed Pilot who is recalled, accepts recall and either reports for indoctrination and training prior to January 1, 2006, or has a “class date” which is earlier than February 1, 2006, shall receive an allocation of Shares under paragraph 2 below and the Shares that would otherwise have been allocated to such recalled Furloughed Pilot under this paragraph 1 shall be assigned to the pool of Shares to be allocated under paragraph 2. The pool of Shares to be allocated to Furloughed Pilots under this paragraph 1 shall be further reduced and assigned to the pool of Shares to be allocated under paragraph 2 if and to the extent necessary so that the number of Shares allocated under paragraph 2 to any recalled Furloughed Pilot who has not retired, died or otherwise incurred a termination of employment prior to January 1, 2006, and whose 60th birthday is not earlier than January 1, 2010, is not less than the number of Shares that would have been allocated to such Furloughed Pilot under this paragraph 1.

2. Active Pilots. The balance of the Shares allocable to the ALPA Group after providing for the distributions to Furloughed Pilots under paragraph 1 shall be distributed to the remaining Qualified Pilot Employees (the “Active Pilots”), including recalled Furloughed Pilots who are treated as Active Pilots for this purpose, as follows:

(a) First, the Shares will be assigned to each Active Pilot so that the most senior Active Pilot is assigned a number of Shares which is, as nearly as is mathematically possible, allowing for rounding and elimination of fractional Shares as provided in paragraph 2(d), two hundred per cent (200%) of the number of Shares assigned to the most junior Active Pilot and each other Active Pilot is assigned a number of Shares between 100% and 200% of the shares received by the most junior Active Pilot based on a straight line progression formula in order of seniority.

(b) Next, in the case of any Active Pilot (including any recalled Furloughed Pilot) who, as of December 31, 2005 (i) has retired (whether such retirement was at or before the Pilot’s Normal Retirement Date); or (ii) has not yet retired but will attain age 60 on or before December 31, 2009; or (iii) has resigned, died or otherwise incurred a termination of employment, the Shares assigned to such Active Pilot under paragraph 2(a) above shall be adjusted by multiplying such Shares by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of months of such Active Pilot’s actual and projected active service between May 1, 2003 and the last day of the month in which occurs the earliest of such Active Pilot’s retirement, 60th birthday, resignation, death or other termination of

 

Exhibit B-1


employment (excluding from such active service any full months between such Active Pilot’s furlough date and recall class date), and the denominator of which is 80. The Active Pilots, including recalled Furloughed Pilots, described in this paragraph 2(b) shall be entitled to receive the adjusted number of Shares determined under this paragraph 2(b).

(c) The Shares that are not distributable to the Active Pilots and recalled Furloughed Pilots described in paragraph 2(b) because of the adjustment required by that paragraph shall be allocated to those Active Pilots whose entitlement to Shares is not subject to adjustment under paragraph 2(b), in the same manner as the preliminary assignment of Shares made under paragraph 2(a) by only taking into account the Active Pilots whose entitlement is not subject to adjustment under paragraph 2(b). The number of Shares allocated to each Active Pilot not subject to paragraph 2(b) is the sum of his or her assigned Shares determined under paragraph 2(a) and his or her allocation determined under this paragraph 2(c).

(d) In accordance with the Company’s plan of reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, any fractional Shares allocated to the ALPA Group as a whole shall be reserved and accumulated until the final distribution, at which time the remaining fractional Share shall be retained by the Company. The computations under paragraph 2(a), (b) and (c) of Shares to which Qualified Pilot Employees are entitled shall be carried to at least three decimal places and shall be rounded up to the next higher full Share for fractional entitlements equal to or in excess of 0.500 and down for fractional entitlements less than 0.500, so that each Qualified Pilot Employee shall receive a distribution in full Shares only.

(e) Shares distributable hereunder to a deceased Qualified Pilot Employee shall be distributed to the beneficiaries of such deceased Qualified Pilot Employee determined in accordance with Section 7.6 of the Pilot Directed Account Plan, without regard to Section 7.6(c).

4. Cash in Lieu of Stock. If, and to the extent, that ALPA sells, assigns or otherwise disposes of all or any portion of its claim in the Employer’s pending Chapter 11 bankruptcy case (the “Claim”) at or prior to the date the Employer’s confirmed plan of reorganization becomes effective (the “Exit Date”), then:

(a) Any Shares that relate to that portion of the Claim that is sold or assigned shall be distributed to the appropriate assignee rather than the affected Qualified Pilot Employees who would otherwise be entitled to receive such Shares.

(b) The Employer shall distribute cash to or on behalf of the affected Qualified Pilot Employees, in lieu of the Shares otherwise distributable to them hereunder, in an amount equal to the portion of the proceeds of such sale or assignment attributable to such Employee’s respective interests in the Claim and related Shares.

(c) Cash to be distributed to Qualified Pilot Employees in lieu of Shares shall be distributed at the same time as the initial distribution of Shares is made under this Plan.

 

Exhibit B-2


Exhibit C

IAM Group

Each Qualified IAM Employee assigned to the IAM Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Shares allocated to the IAM Group determined by the ratio that each Qualified IAM Employee’s Wages for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 31, 2005 bears to the total Wages for all Qualified IAM Employees for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 31, 2005.

 

Exhibit C-1


Exhibit D

AMFA Group

Each Qualified AMFA Employee assigned to the AMFA Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Shares allocated to the AMFA Group determined as follows:

1. Tranche 1. Eighty-four and forty-four one-hundredths percent (84.44%) of the Shares allocated to the AMFA Group will be allocated among Qualified AMFA Employees based on each Qualified AMFA Employee’s pro rata percentage determined as the ratio that the Qualified AMFA Employee’s Wages, less overtime pay, for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 31, 2005 bears to the total amount of Wages, less overtime pay, for all Qualified AMFA Employees for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 31, 2005.

2. Tranche 2. Fifteen and fifty-six one hundredths percent (15.56%) of the Shares allocated to the AMFA group will be allocated among Qualified AMFA Employees based on each Qualified AMFA Employee’s pro rata percentage equal to the ratio of (i) the Qualified AMFA Employee’s Wages, less overtime pay, for the period from January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005, to (ii) the total amount of Wages, less overtime pay for all Qualified AMFA Employees for the period from January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005.

Exhibit E

PACFA Group

Each Qualified PACFA Employee assigned to the PACFA Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Shares allocated to the PACFA Group equal to the ratio of (i) the Qualified PACFA Employee’s Wages for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 31, 2005 to (ii) the total amount of Wages for all Qualified PACFA Employees for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 31, 2005.

 

Exhibit E-1


Exhibit F

TWU Group

Each Qualified TWU Employee assigned to the TWU Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Shares allocated to the TWU Group equal to the ratio of (i) the Qualified TWU Employee’s Wages, less overtime pay, for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 31, 2005, to (ii) the total amount of Wages, less overtime pay, for all Qualified TWU Employees for the period from May 1, 2003 through December 31, 2005.

 

Exhibit F-1


Exhibit G

SAM Group

Each Qualified SAM Employee assigned to the SAM Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Shares allocated to the SAM Group equal to the ratio of (i) the Qualified SAM Employee’s Wages, plus any success sharing program-performance Incentive Plan payments, for the period from January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005, to (ii) the total amount of Wages, plus any success sharing program-performance Incentive Plan payments, for all Qualified SAM Employees for the period from January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005.

contribution to any entity or entities authorized to receive such contributions under the Funding Part, on behalf of each Participant who is eligible to receive an allocation of proceeds generated from the sale of convertible notes issued by UAL Corporation pursuant to the terms of the UAL Corporation Convertible Notes Plan of Allocation and Distribution, attached as Exhibit C.

12. Section 10.2 is amended and restated effective August 1, 2006, to read as follows:

“10.2 Limitations on Allocations; Adjustments. If, for any calendar year, a Participant in this Plan is also a participant in any other qualified defined contribution plan maintained by the Company or an Affiliate, allocations will be made first under this Plan and then under such other defined contribution plan. If a Company or Participant contribution that would otherwise be contributed or allocated to the Participant’s Account would cause the Annual Additions for the calendar year to exceed the limitation under Section 10.1, the amount contributed or allocated will be reduced so that the Annual Additions for the calendar year will equal the maximum amount that may be allocated under Section 10.1. Prior to determining the actual amount of a Participant’s Section 415 Compensation for the calendar year, the Company may determine the maximum amount that may be contributed on behalf of a Participant on the basis of a reasonable estimate of the Participant’s Section 415 Compensation for the calendar year, provided the Company uniformly determines Section 415 Compensation for all Participants similarly situated. As soon as administratively feasible after the end of the calendar year, the maximum amount that may be allocated to a Participant’s Account under Section 10.1 will be determined on the basis of the Participant’s actual Section 415 Compensation for the calendar year. If, as a result of a reasonable error in estimating a Participant’s annual compensation, a reasonable error in determining the amount of Elective Deferrals that may be made with respect to a Participant, or under other limited facts and circumstances that the Internal Revenue Service finds justify the adjustment rules set forth in this Section 10.2, the amount that would otherwise be credited under the Plan on behalf of a Participant for a calendar year that causes the limitation of Section 10.1 to be exceeded, the Company will, to the extent necessary, treat the contributions as follows:

(a) first, refund the Participant’s Voluntary Contributions including any earnings or gains accrued on such contributions in accordance with Treas. Reg. Section 1.415-6(b)(6)(iv);

(b) second, refund the Participant’s Elective Deferrals (other than ‘Catch-up Contributions’ within the meaning of Code section 414(v)), including any earnings on such Elective Deferrals in accordance with Treas. Reg. Section 1.415-6(b)(6)(iv);

(c) third, reduce the Company contributions under Section 4.1(a), to be held and applied in accordance with Treas. Reg. Section 1.415-6(b)(6)(ii);

(d) fourth, reduce the Company’s contributions under Section 4.1(f) to be held and applied in accordance with Treas. Reg. Section 1.415-6(b)(6)(iii);

(e) fifth, reduce the Company’s contributions under Section 4.1(d) to be held and applied in accordance with Treas. Reg. Section 1.415-6(b)(6)(ii); and

(f) sixth, reduce the Company’s contribution under Section 4.1(e) of this Plan, to be held and applied in accordance with Treas. Reg. Sec. 1.415-6(b)(6)(iii).”

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this amendment to be executed on its behalf this          day of December, 2006.

UAL Corporation

Convertible Notes Plan of Allocation and Distribution

Methodology

 

I. Purpose.

 

  A. General. In connection with the reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code of UAL Corporation (the “Company”) and its affiliates (collectively “United”), United employees have seen, and in the case of the unionized workforce, agreed to, the termination of their Pension Plan as part of the reorganization process in order to reduce costs and improve the Company’s financial position. As a result, the Company agreed to issue Convertible Notes (the “Notes”) and to allocate such Notes, or the proceeds related to the sale of the Notes (the “Proceeds”), to employees who were adversely affected by the Pension Plan termination. This document establishes the terms for allocating the Notes and distributing the Proceeds to or on behalf of such employees pursuant to the Company’s Plan of Reorganization.

 

  B. Collective Bargaining. As it relates to Eligible Employees who are in the class or craft of employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement with an Employer pursuant to which an Employer has agreed to provide such Eligible Employees with participation in a profit sharing bonus plan, this Convertible Notes Allocation and Distribution methodology is pursuant to such collective bargaining agreement.

 

  C. Definitions. Unless otherwise specified, the capitalized terms herein have the meanings given below:

AFA. “AFA” means the Association of Flight Attendants - CWA.

AMFA. “AMFA” means the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association.

ALPA. “ALPA” means the Air Line Pilots Association, International.

Board. “Board” means the Board of Directors of the Company.

Cause. “Cause” means (i) dishonesty, fraud, embezzlement, or material and deliberate injury or attempted injury, in each case related to an Employer or any affiliate or its businesses, (ii) unlawful or criminal activity of a serious nature that in the reasonable opinion of the Company, is likely to have an adverse effect on an Employer, any affiliate or its reputation, (iii) any willful and deliberate breach of a duty or habitual neglect of duty, or (iv) any breach of any confidentiality, non-compete or non-solicitation agreement with an Employer or any affiliate, provided, in the case of a Collective Bargaining Employee, such basis for termination of employment is considered “cause” justifying termination under the applicable collective bargaining agreement.

An individual who has a seniority date of June 1, 2006 or earlier, but was recently hired, must have completed his or her probationary period to receive an allocation of Proceeds.

Exhibit A

AFA Group

Each Eligible Flight Attendant assigned to the AFA Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Notes and Proceeds allocated to the AFA Group’s Grantor Trust determined as follows:

1. Allocation Philosophy. The Notes, approved by the Bankruptcy Court, partially offset the retirement benefits that Eligible Flight Attendants lost when the Pension Plan was terminated and replaced. The AFA has reviewed how the termination of the Pension Plan affected flight attendants, taking into consideration the degree to which that loss will be offset by (i) any continued payments under the Pension Plan that will be made by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (“PBGC”); and (ii) Company contributions under the United Airlines Flight Attendant 401(k) defined contribution replacement plan (the “401(k) Plan”). This review demonstrated that nearly all flight attendants would be adversely affected by the loss of the Pension Plan should they choose to retire earlier than normal retirement under the Pension Plan at age 65. This review also demonstrated that while all flight attendants were adversely affected by the loss of the Pension Plan to some degree, there was also a smaller group of flight attendants who were most adversely affected by the termination of the Pension Plan. This sub-group generally were those flight attendants who had not yet reached their early retirement eligibility under the terminated Pension Plan but were over the age of 40 and as a result did not have a sufficiently long remaining working career to make up the entire loss of the Pension Plan under the 401(k) Plan.

2. Allocation Formula.

(a) Tranche 1. 90% of the Proceeds will be allocated on a per capita basis among all Eligible Flight Attendants.

(b) Tranche 2. In addition, the sub-group of Eligible Flight Attendants most adversely affected (as described above) will receive an additional allocation of the remaining 10% of such Proceeds on an age and service weighted basis. These Eligible Flight Attendants will include those who (i) were hired after March 31, 1980, (ii) have ten or more years of service as of June 30, 2005, (iii) were over age 40 as of June 30, 2005 (the “Date of Plan Termination”); and (iv) were not yet eligible for early retirement under the Pension Plan (had not yet reached age 50 even though they satisfied the ten years of service requirement) as of the Date of Plan Termination (“Tranche 2 Eligible Participant”). A Tranche 2 Eligible Participant shall receive an allocation that is age and service weighted based on the sum of the person’s age and service on the Date of Plan Termination divided by the sum of all Tranche 2 Eligible Participants’ age and service on the Date of Plan Termination.

3. Age and Service Determination. Age shall be determined as of the Date of Plan Termination calculated in days based upon a 30/360 year. Service levels shall be determined based on all service with United as of the Date of Plan Termination calculated in days based upon a 30/360 year. Fractional ages and service levels will be expressed in decimals with no rounding.

Exhibit B

ALPA Group

Each Eligible Pilot Employee (as defined below) assigned to the ALPA Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Notes and Proceeds allocated to the ALPA Group’s Grantor Trust, determined as follows:

Eligible Pilot Employee. “Eligible Pilot Employee” means an individual who satisfies the eligibility criteria established by ALPA. In general, an “Eligible Pilot Employee” is an individual employed by an Employer in the class or craft of employees covered by the collective bargaining agreement between the Company and ALPA (a “Pilot Employee”) and who is on the United Airlines Pilot System Seniority List as of January 1, 2005 (the “Eligibility Date”) and who(a) is on active status on the Eligibility Date; (b)on or after the Eligibility Date, is on military leave, maternity/paternity leave, or an ALPA leave of absence pursuant to Section 12-F or 12-G of the collective bargaining agreement; (c) dies, retires or becomes disabled after the Eligibility Date; or (d) is on furlough status as of the Eligibility Date and, as of the date the Company exited bankruptcy on February 1, 2006 (the “Exit Date”), has (i) been recalled and returned to active status, or (ii) been recalled, has accepted recall, and has been assigned to a class date (even if the assigned class date is subsequent to the Exit Date); but excluding, (a) any otherwise Eligible Pilot Employee who resigned from employment or was involuntarily terminated effective on or before the Exit Date and (b) any management pilot who is a corporate officer of the Company. Notwithstanding an involuntary termination, an otherwise Eligible Pilot Employee shall not cease to be eligible if he or she has filed a grievance challenging the validity of the termination, which grievance, as of the Exit Date, has not yet been finally resolved by decision of the United Pilot System Board of Adjustment, withdrawal or settlement upholding the termination, regardless of the ultimate disposition of the grievance after the Exit Date.

Notwithstanding anything in the foregoing paragraph to the contrary, any pilot who dies in the line of duty on September 11, 2001, shall be an Eligible Pilot Employee. Any distribution payable to such deceased Eligible Pilot Employee will be paid to his surviving spouse, unless ALPA determines that there is a material risk of dispute over the identity of the proper distributee(s), in which case payment shall be made to the deceased Eligible Pilot Employee’s legal representative, or to the registry of the appropriate probate or other court of competent jurisdiction for determination of the proper distributee(s).

Allocation Philosophy. The allocation formula (and the assumptions and methodologies incorporated in that formula) has been determined by ALPA . In addition, the allocations to deceased or disabled Eligible Pilot Employees shall be modified and adjusted as provided in the methodology adopted by ALPA. The formula is intended to allocate the total amount of Notes and Proceeds in the ALPA Group’s Grantor Trust among Eligible Pilot Employees in proportion to the value of benefits under the Pension Plan which were accrued prior to the date of termination of the Pension Plan, or which would have accrued under the Pension Plan in the future had the Pension Plan not terminated, but which are not expected ever be paid, taking into account estimated payments to be made by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (the “PBGC”) pursuant to Sections 4022 and 4044 of ERISA and the value of follow-on C Plan contributions.

 

8th Amendment     Generally Effective Beginning
PDAP   Exhibit B-1   January 1, 2006
Final    


Allocation Formula. An Eligible Pilot Employee’s allocation of the Proceeds shall equal the present value of the Eligible Pilot Employee’s Gap Benefit, multiplied by the Replacement Ratio. For allocation purposes, an Eligible Pilot Employee’s “Gap Benefit” is the difference between (1) and (2):

(1) the present values of the Eligible Pilot Employee’s Pension Plan benefit and of his or her non-qualified defined benefit plan, projected to age 60 in accordance with the assumptions and methodology adopted by ALPA ; and

the sum of the present values of (a) plus (b):

(a) benefits estimated by ALPA’s actuary to be payable under the Pension Plan by the PBGC (including benefits payable from Pension Plan assets in accordance with Section 4044 of ERISA and/or benefits payable by the PBGC in accordance with the ERISA plan termination insurance program pursuant to Section 4022 of ERISA); and

(b) Company contributions made under the Qualified Plan applicable to the ALPA Group and held in the C Plan Account (as such term is defined under the ALPA Group Qualified Plan), excluding contributions of UAL Stock or cash made pursuant to the UAL Corporation Employee Equity Distribution Plan and excluding any Company Contribution of Notes Proceeds, projected to age 60 in accordance with the assumptions and methodology adopted by ALPA .

The “Replacement Ratio” is the total net Notes Proceeds available for distribution to Eligible Pilot Employees, divided by the total Gap Benefits for all Eligible Pilot Employees.

Allocation Schedule. ALPA has determined the schedule of Eligible Pilot Employees and their share of the Proceeds based on the above Allocation Formula. Such schedule is maintained by ALPA and individual Eligible Pilot Employees may obtain their allocation information by contacting ALPA.

Exhibit C

IAM Group

Each Eligible IAM Employee assigned to the IAM Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Notes and Proceeds allocated to the IAM Group’s Grantor Trust determined as follows:

1. Allocation Philosophy. The Notes represent the compensation that the Bankruptcy Court authorized to partially offset the retirement benefits that Eligible IAM Employees lost when the Pension Plans were terminated and replaced. The IAM reviewed how the termination of the Pension Plans affected its membership, taking into consideration the degree to which that loss will be offset by (i) any continued payments under the Pension Plans that will be made by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and (ii) Company contributions under the replacement plans. That review led the IAM to conclude that the Proceeds should be allocated among the Eligible IAM Employees.

2. Allocation Formula. An Eligible IAM Employee will receive a pro rata share based on the individual’s years of service with United as compared to the total years of service with United for all Eligible IAM Employees. Years of service will be actual years of service for Eligible IAM Employees who retired prior to January 1, 2006. Years of service will be projected through December 31, 2009 for other Eligible IAM Employees.

3. Schedule. The IAM Group has determined the schedule of Eligible IAM Employees and their share of the Proceeds based on the above Allocation Formula. Such schedule is maintained by IAM and may be obtained by contacting IAM .

1. Allocation Philosophy. The allocation formula has been determined by the AMFA Group. It is intended to allocate the total amount of Notes and Proceeds in the AMFA Group’s Grantor Trust to each Eligible AMFA Employee in a manner which partially compensates him or her for the lost value of the Pension Plan that would have been accrued by such Eligible AMFA Employee if the Pension Plan were not terminated.

2. Allocation Formula.

PAFCA Group

Each Eligible PAFCA Employee assigned to the PAFCA Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the cash amount allocated to the PAFCA Group determined as follows:

1. Allocation Philosophy. The allocation formula has been determined by the PAFCA Group.

Exhibit G

SAM Group

Each Eligible SAM Employee assigned to the SAM Group shall be entitled to receive that portion of the Notes and Proceeds allocated to the SAM Group’s Grantor Trust determined as follows:

1. Philosophy. The allocation formula has been determined by the Company. It is intended to allocate the total amount of Notes and Proceeds in the SAM Group’s Grantor Trust to each Eligible SAM Employee in a manner which partially compensates him or her for the lost value of the Pension Plan that would have been accrued by such Eligible SAM Employee if the Pension Plan were not terminated.

2. Base Allocation Formula. Each Eligible SAM Employee’s base allocation of the Proceeds shall equal the Allocation Ratio for such Eligible SAM Employee’s Age and Service Class multiplied by such Employee’s Pay for 2005.

(a) An “Age and Service Class” exists for each possible group of Eligible SAM Employees who have the same age and seniority service determined as of December 31, 2005.

(b) The “Allocation Ratio” for each Age and Service Class equals the Lost Benefits Percentage for that Class multiplied by the Ratio.

(c) The “Lost Benefits Percentage” is calculated for each possible Age and Service Class as follows:

(i) Determine as a percentage of Pay the lump sum value that would have been paid from the Pension Plan had a hypothetical Eligible SAM Employee in that Age and Service Class continued working until age 65, projecting years of participation to age 65.

(ii) Determine as a percentage of Pay the lump sum value that the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation would pay out of the Pension Plan when a hypothetical Eligible SAM Employee in that Age and Service Class reaches age 65, based on the age and service level as of the date the Pension Plan was involuntarily terminated, determined without regard to any maximum limitations imposed by the PBGC.

(iii) Determine as a percentage of Pay the lump sum value that a hypothetical Eligible SAM Employee in that Age and Service Class would receive under the Qualified Plan at age 65, assuming continued service to age 65 and receipt of the full Safe Harbor Enhanced Matching Contribution and Employer Direct Contributions each of such working years, ignoring for this purpose, any limitations that would be imposed by Code Sections 401(a)(17) and 415.

 

8th Amendment     Generally Effective Beginning
PDAP   Exhibit G-1   January 1, 2006
Final    


(iv) Each of the lump sum values in (i), (ii) and (iii) are determined using the 1983 GAM unisex table and an interest rate of 7.5%. Each of these values is then discounted back to December 31, 2005 for each Age and Service Class using a 7.5% interest rate. The sum of the discounted values of (a)(ii) and (a)(iii) is subtracted from the discounted value of (a)(i) giving the Lost Benefits Percentage for that Age and Service Class.

(d) The “Total Benefits Lost” equals the Lost Benefits Percentage for each Age and Service Class multiplied by total Pay as of December 31, 2005 for all Eligible SAM Employees in such Age and Service Class.

(e) The “Ratio” equals the amount of Proceeds to be allocated divided by the Total Benefits Lost.

3. Supplemental Allocation Formula. The base allocation formula does not proportionately compensate for the loss from the Pension Plan for a number of Eligible SAM Employees due to the impact of PBGC limits. Any Eligible SAM Employee so impacted shall receive a supplemental allocation of the Proceeds equal to such Eligible SAM Employee’s Discounted PBGC Loss multiplied by the Ratio (determined under 2(e) above).

(a) For each Eligible SAM Employee with a “PBGC Loss”, such Eligible SAM Employee’s “Discounted PBGC Loss” equals his or her PBGC Loss discounted to the PBGC Affected Age using an interest rate of 7.5%.

(b) The “PBGC Loss” for each Eligible SAM Employee equals the excess of his or her Pension Plan Benefit over the PBGC Offset. If the result is $0 or less, then the Eligible SAM Employee’s PBGC Loss is $0 and such Employee shall not receive a supplemental allocation.

(c) The “PBGC Affected Age” is 57, the average age for all Eligible SAM Employees whose PBGC Loss exceeds $0.

(d) The “PBGC Offset” is $434,413 This is the lump sum value at age 65 of an annual single life annuity of $45,614, determined using the GAM83 Unisex table and a 7.5% interest rate. $45,614 was the maximum PBGC guaranteed benefit for plans involuntarily terminating in 2005.

(e) The “Pension Plan Benefit” for an Eligible SAM Employee is the lump sum value at age 65 of an annual single life annuity equal to the Pension Plan Multiplier times such Eligible SAM Employee’s Pay and service as of December 31, 2005. The lump sum value is determined using the GAM83 Unisex table and a 7.5% interest rate.

(f) The “Pension Plan Multiplier” is 1.612%.

An Eligible SAM Employee’s Company seniority date on December 31, 2005 shall be used for determining service under this Exhibit and only full years of service will be used.

5. Other Commitments. Notwithstanding the foregoing, those Eligible SAM Employees for whom the Company gave a written commitment to provide service credit under the United Airlines Management, Administrative and Public Contact Defined Benefit Pension Plan based on prior employment with United or to provide other similar adjustments will have their service under this Exhibit G and resulting allocation adjusted to abide by such commitments.

“7.12 Direct Rollover.

 

  (a) Right of Election of Direct Rollover. To the extent required by Code Section 401(a)(31), the Participant (or a Surviving Spouse or other Beneficiary who is a “designated beneficiary” within the meaning of Code Section 401(a)(9)(E)) will have the right to elect to have any distribution that constitutes an “eligible rollover distribution” paid directly to an “eligible retirement plan” specified by such Participant (or Beneficiary). Any such direct rollover shall be subject to such rules and procedures as the Plan Administrator, with the written consent of the Association, may adopt from time to time, including rules relating to whether such direct rollover may be made in-kind and rules relating to the investment funds from which such direct rollover may be made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to any distribution made to a Beneficiary who is a “designated beneficiary” (as defined by Code Section 401(a)(9)(E)) and who is not the Participant’s Surviving Spouse, such Beneficiary may elect a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer of the eligible portion of such distribution in accordance with Code Section 402(c)(11)

 

  (b)

Eligible Rollover Distribution. An eligible rollover distribution is a distribution that constitutes an “eligible rollover distribution” under Code Section 401(a)(31)(D). No amount that is distributed on account of hardship will be an eligible rollover distribution, and

 

10th Amendment     Generally Effective Beginning
PDAP   5   January 1, 2008
Final    


 

the distributee may not elect to have any portion of such a distribution paid directly to an eligible retirement plan. A portion of a distribution will not fail to be an eligible rollover distribution merely because the portion consists of after-tax employee contributions which are not includible in gross income. However, such portion may be transferred only to an individual retirement account or annuity described in Code Section 408(a) or (b), or to a qualified defined contribution plan described in Code Section 401(a) or 403(a) that agrees to separately account for amounts so transferred, including separately accounting for the portion of such distribution that is includible in gross income and the portion of such distribution that is not includible.

 

  (c) Eligible Retirement Plan. An eligible retirement plan is a plan that constitutes an “eligible retirement plan” under Code Section 401(a)(31)(E). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the term “eligible retirement plan” includes an annuity contract described in Code Section 403(b) and an eligible plan under Code Section 457(b) that is maintained by a state, political subdivision of a state, or any agency or instrumentality of a state or political subdivision of a state and that agrees to account separately for amounts transferred into such plan from this Plan. The term “eligible retirement plan” also includes a Roth individual retirement plan described in Code Section 408A. In the case of distributions to Beneficiaries other than a Surviving Spouse, the term “eligible retirement plan” means an individual retirement account or annuity described in Code Section 408(a) or 408(b) (other than an endowment contract).

 

  (d) Alternate Payees. The provisions of this Section shall apply to a spouse or former spouse of a Participant who is an alternate payee under a qualified domestic relations order, as defined in Code Section 414(p).

 

  (e) Installment Distributions. The distribution period for an installment distribution under Section 7.3(a)(iii), for purposes of determining whether such distributions constitute an eligible rollover distribution, will be determined by assuming earnings equal to 120% of the applicable Federal mid-term rate under Code Section 1274(d).

 

  (f) Default of Direct Rollover Election. If a Participant (or Surviving Spouse or other Beneficiary) fails to make an election pursuant to this Section, he or she will be deemed not to have made such election.”

25. A new Section 7.15(c) is added to the Plan effective as of January 1, 2009 to read as follows:

 

  “(c) Military Service Withdrawals. Effective January 1, 2009, pursuant to the Heroes Earnings Assistance and Relief Tax Act of 2008, a Participant who is on active military duty for a period of more than 30 days may thereafter elect to withdraw all or any part of the balance in his or her Elective Deferral Account (if any). If a Participant receives a distribution under this Section 7.15(c), then such Participant’s Elective Deferral Contributions will be suspended for six (6) months after the receipt of such distribution.”

26. Section 12.2 is amended effective January 1, 2008 by deleting the phrase “as an even multiple of $1,000” in the first sentence thereof and replacing it with the phrase “as an even multiple of $1.00”.

27. Section 12.7(e) is amended effective January 1, 2008 in its entirety to read as follows:

 

  “(e) Method of Repayment. Generally, loan repayments will be made by payroll deductions for each payroll period. However, during any period when payroll deduction is not possible or is not permitted under applicable law, repayment will be made by one or more methods as approved by the Plan Administrator in its sole discretion from time to time. In addition, to the extent permitted under applicable law, loan repayments will continue during a Participant’s bankruptcy, unless a court of competent jurisdiction orders the Plan to cease such repayments and a copy of such order is provided to the Plan Administrator.”

1. The definition of “Highly Compensated Employee” in Section 1.5 is amended in its entirety to read as follows:

Highly Compensated Employee.

 

  (a) A “Highly Compensated Employee” for any Plan Year is any employee who:

 

  (i) at any time during such Plan Year or the 12-month period preceding such Plan Year, owns or owned (or is considered as owning or having owned within the meaning of Code Section 318) more than five percent of the outstanding stock of the Company or an Affiliate or stock possessing more than five percent of the total combined voting power of all outstanding stock of the Company or an Affiliate; or

 

  (ii) during the 12-month period preceding such Plan Year, received compensation in excess of $80,000 (or such dollar amount, adjusted to reflect increases in the cost of living, as in effect under Code Section 414(q)(1)(B) for the calendar year during which the Plan Year in question begins).

 

  (b) For purposes of this section:

 

  (i) an ‘employee’ is any individual (other than an individual who is a nonresident alien who receives no earned income (within the meaning of Code Section 911(d)(2)) from the Company or an Affiliate that constitutes income from sources within the United States (within the meaning of Code Section 861(a)(3)) who, during the Plan Year for which the determination is being made, performs services for the Company or an Affiliate as

  (B) an employee pursuant to Code section 401(c)(1) or

 

  (C) a Leased Employee; and

 

  (ii) ‘compensation’ for any period means an employee’s Section 415 Wages for the period.

 

  (iii) a former employee of the Company or an Affiliate shall be treated as a former Highly Compensated Employee of the Company or an Affiliate if the former employee was a Highly Compensated Employee of the Company or an Affiliate when the former employee terminated employment or the former employee was a Highly Compensated Employee of the Company or an Affiliate at any time after attaining age 55. The determination of who is a former Highly Compensated Employee is based on the rules applicable to determining Highly Compensated Employee status as in effect for that determination year in accordance with Section 1.414(q)-1T, Q&A-4 of the Temporary Income Tax Regulations and Notice 97-45 or later guidance under the Code.”

2. The definition of “Leased Employee” in Section 1.5 is amended by deleting the phrase “primary direction and control” contained therein and substituting the phrase “primary direction or control” in lieu thereof.

“If a Highly Compensated Employee participates in two or more cash or deferred arrangements that have different plan years, the Elective Deferral Contributions made under all such cash or deferred arrangements during the Plan Year shall be aggregated for purposes of the testing provisions of this Section 4.5.”
