3 Summary of Benefits Introduction Who is eligible? How the Plan works Contributions The Ceridian Futures Retirement Plan (the Plan ) provides a tax efficient way for you to save for your retirement. This leaflet is intended to give you a summary of the main benefits provided through the Plan. This should be read in conjunction with the Member Booklet provided in your pack. Please note, however, that this summary takes precedent over the Booklet if there is a conflict. All full or part time employees who are not already members of a Qualifying Pension Scheme will be assessed for automatic enrolment and, if eligible*, will be automatically enrolled into the Plan on the first day of the month following two complete calendar months of service. If you do not qualify through auto enrolment assessment, or want to become a member earlier, you can join the Plan from the first day of the month following commencement of employment. *You are eligible for auto enrolment if you are: not already a member of a qualifying workplace pension scheme with your employer; aged 22 to State Pension Age (SPA) earning more than 9,440 per annum ( ); working, or if you ordinarily work, in the UK. The Plan works in a straightforward way. Contributions are invested through the Plan into your individual account. You will be sent annual statements showing the value of your individual account and you can view your account online at any time. At retirement, the value of your individual account (a combination of contributions and return on investments less annual charges) will be used to purchase retirement benefits. The Plan operates on a salary sacrifice basis where, instead of contributing directly, an equivalent amount is sacrificed from your salary and paid by the Company to the Plan. You will receive full tax relief at source under this arrangement. It is possible to opt-out of the salary sacrifice arrangement. If you have done so, you will automatically receive tax relief on any contributions you make at your highest marginal rate, because contributions are deducted from your gross salary before tax is deducted. Employer contribution (%) Employee contribution (%)* Auto enrolment legislation says that contributions will increase over time, therefore: From October 2017 the minimum employee contribution will be 3%. From October 2018 the minimum employee contribution will be 5%. Summary of Benefits Ceridian Futures Retirement Plan 1

4 Contributions (cont.) Investing your Contributions Charges under the Plan Viewing your Account What if I leave the Plan? Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) You can pay AVCs to boost your retirement savings. The AVCs are member contributions but are not matched by the Company. You will, however, still be entitled to tax relief at your highest marginal rate on the AVCs paid, subject to the restrictions imposed by the Annual Allowance (see Useful terms ). Your contributions are invested through the Plan. They are paid into your personal account and you then choose how your individual account is invested using a range of investment options selected by the Trustee Company of the Plan. More detail can be found in the Investment Options leaflet which also sets out some of the things you should consider when deciding how to invest your funds. A brief summary is provided below. Lifestyle A choice of three Lifestyle options is available. Put simply, Lifestyle aims to provide you with a good long-term rate of investment return over the majority of your working life, whilst aiming to protect the value of your savings as you near retirement. Your contributions will initially be invested in the DC Cash Fund while you have the option to opt-out of the Plan and will then be invested in the default investment option, Balanced Lifestyle, with a target retirement age of 65. You may subsequently choose a different target retirement age provided it is not less than age 55. This is not a recommendation and a Lifestyle Option may not be right for you. Self Select This option is available for employees who wish to make their own investment decisions. There is a range of nine funds which you may choose from. Full details of both the Lifestyle and Self Select options can be found in the Investment Options guide and you can change your investment choice at any time after joining the Plan, or after your opt out period if applicable, by contacting BlackRock online, by phone or by . An Annual Management Charge ( AMC ) is applied to your fund. The AMC is the cost of having your assets professionally managed. The fee pays the manager to select which investment your money (along with that of the other investors in the fund) is invested into. If a fund invests in a collective investment scheme it will also bear its share of the costs of other services, such as the fees paid to the trustee/depositary, custodian, auditors and registrar. An estimate of these charges is shown under Additional Expenses in the Investment Options guide. Once you have been enrolled, you will be provided with an Account number and, under separate cover, a password. This will enable you to login to your Account via blackrock.co.uk/blackrock-pensions/ceridian This secure site will enable you to get up to date details of your Account and carry out transactions online; such as view the value of your Account; change contribution levels; switch investments and use the Target Plan modeller. Leaving the Plan during the opt-out period If you do not wish to remain a member of the Plan you are able to opt out during the opt-out period. You will receive a refund of the contributions you paid into the Plan, including the value of any paid via Salary Sacrifice. Leaving the Plan before retirement and after the opt-out period If you have been a member for two or more years you will have a choice of either transferring your total fund value to another registered pension scheme, providing they are willing to accept it, or retaining your fund in the Plan until you decide to draw your benefits. If you cease to be a member between three months and two years, you will have a choice of either receiving a refund of the current value of the units purchased by your own contributions (but not those paid via Salary Sacrifice), or transferring your account to a new employer s scheme, or to a personal or stakeholder pension. If you cease to be a member between the end of the opt-out period but before 3 months membership, you will receive a refund of the current value of the units purchased by your own contributions (but not those paid via Salary Sacrifice). If you want to transfer your account to another scheme or insurance policy, you must contact BlackRock. If you do not contact BlackRock within three months of leaving then you will receive as refund as above. 2 Summary of Benefits Ceridian Futures Retirement Plan

5 What happens at Retirement Death Benefits You can take your benefits any time after the age of 55. When you are close to your target retirement age, BlackRock will provide you with information on the options available to you to help you with your decision as to what you want to do with your fund. You will be provided with details of an annuity service selected by the Trustee Company, and their aim is to seek the most competitive annuity rates available at which to buy your annuity (pension) to help maximise your pension benefits at retirement. The cost of purchasing your annuity (pension) will be made against your fund or can be paid by you directly, but will not be met by the Trustee Company or your employer. You have the legal right to shop around for the highest annuity income rates and the options that best suit you this is called the open market option. The annuity options you finally choose will be dependent on your own personal circumstances. In addition to a pension for yourself, you may be able to select one or more of the following: the option to give up part of your pension for a tax-free lump sum; a level pension or a pension with annual increases; a pension for your spouse, civil partner or other dependant in the event of your death; ` ` a guarantee period, where your spouse, civil partner or dependant would be paid the balance of any pension payments if you die within the guarantee period (which may be up to ten years). Other ways to take benefits at retirement You do not need to buy an annuity at retirement. One alternative is known as Income drawdown which is the name given to the facility where you continue to keep your retirement savings invested and take an income each year rather than buy an annuity. This option is not available through the Plan, but you may transfer the value of your benefits to another pension arrangement at retirement where income drawdown is offered. You are recommended to seek independent financial advice if you are interested in this option. You should be aware that your benefits at retirement from all UK registered pension arrangements are subject to the Lifetime Allowance. If total benefits exceed the Lifetime Allowance (see Useful terms ), tax charges may apply to the excess benefits. From Ceridian not the Plan If you die while you are employed by the Company, please refer to your contract of employment for details of any life assurance benefits that might become payable to your dependants. From the Plan In the event of your death before retirement, the value built up in your Account would become available as a lump sum payment. You should complete and return to BlackRock, at the address overleaf, the Nomination Form provided by BlackRock in the Welcome Pack which identifies the person(s) you wish to nominate to receive any benefits from the Plan that may become payable on your death. Benefits will be paid at the discretion of the Trustee Company. Summary of Benefits Ceridian Futures Retirement Plan 3

6 Trust Deed and Rules The Plan is a registered scheme under the terms of the Finance Act This results in valuable tax relief on pension contributions. To gain and keep its registered status, the Plan has to conform with requirements set down by HMRC and tax laws. The Plan is governed by its Trust Deed and Rules. The assets of the Plan are independent from the Company and can be used only for benefit purposes described within the rules of the Plan. Your benefits are governed by these documents together with the Plan Benefit Annex. Anyone entitled to benefits from the Plan (whether a member or a member s dependant) who would like to inspect the documents should contact BlackRock at the contact details below. In the event of conflict between this booklet and the Trust Deed and Rules, the latter will apply. The Trustee Company is Independent Trustee Services Limited and is independent from the Company and BlackRock. The Company may amend or alter the benefits provided under the Plan at any time, provided such an action does not impair certain rights of participants accrued under the Plan at such time. The Company may also terminate the Plan. If you have any questions about the Plan, please contact BlackRock at the contact details below. For more information: Website: blackrock.co.uk/blackrock-pensions/ceridian Telephone: Address: BlackRock Employee Savings Service Centre PO Box 704 Peterborough PE1 1WL Useful terms Annual Allowance The Annual Allowance is the maximum amount of pension savings that you can build up in a year without incurring a tax charge. Savings made by you and also those made on your behalf, for example by the Company, count towards the Annual Allowance. The Annual Allowance is set at 50,000 until 5 April From 6 April 2014, it is set to be reduced to 40,000. Savings in excess of the Annual Allowance may be subject to an Annual Allowance Charge. Auto Enrolment Auto enrolment (also called AE or workplace savings ) is a new approach to pension saving that was introduced in October Starting with the largest, but eventually being rolled out to cover any employer of any size, the Government now requires every employer to enrol their employees into a workplace pension scheme that meets new legal standards known as a qualifying scheme. Employees who meet certain conditions will automatically be enrolled into a qualifying workplace pension. If you are: not already a member of a qualifying workplace pension scheme with your employer aged 22 to State Pension Age (SPA) earning more than 9,440 per annum ( ) working, or if you ordinarily work, in the UK You will be automatically enrolled into your employer s qualifying workplace pension in this case, the Plan.

The period used for measuring the increase in your pension benefits against the Annual Allowance for tax relief purposes. Please note that the PIP for the Plan is 6 April to 5 April each year. Any contributions you make to the Plan during any PIP will count toward the Annual Allowance applicable to that tax year. In the case of the Plan, pensionable pay is defined as basic salary. These are total earnings as determined by the Company and may include the following, if an individual is in receipt of them: salary, wages, commission, bonuses, overtime, statutory sick pay, statutory maternity, paternity and adoption pay. To qualify for auto enrolment, your earnings must be more than 9,440 for the tax year Both your contributions and those from the Company are then based on earnings between 5,668 and 41,450 for the tax year Independent Trustee Services Ltd ( ITS ) Summary of Benefits Ceridian Futures Retirement Plan 5
