3 SUMMARY PLAN DESCRIPTION RETIREMENT INCOME PLAN The Retirement Income Plan ( RIP ) of the Saudi Arabian Oil Company ( Saudi Aramco ) is a defined benefit pension plan which provides benefits for (1) vested Employees who retire from Saudi Aramco or an Associated Company or (2) vested Employees who terminate employment with Saudi Aramco or an Associated Company prior to becoming retirement eligible. The RIP is a qualified plan under Section 401(a) of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and provides certain advantages to U.S. taxpayers: The security of RIP benefits is protected through funding standards and insurance established by the U.S. Government; Members pay no current tax on Company contributions to the RIP or on RIP investment earnings until distributions are made and received from the RIP; and At retirement or termination from employment, if the Cash Payment Option is elected, the lump sum distribution qualifies for rollover to another qualifying retirement plan, including the Savings Plan of the Saudi Arabian Oil Company ( Savings Plan ), or to an Individual Retirement Account. WHO IS ELIGIBLE The RIP covers full-time salaried Employees on the U.S. Dollar payroll of Saudi Aramco and Associated Companies (such companies including Saudi Aramco collectively referred to as the Companies or individually as a Company ). Such Associated Companies include the following listed companies and any others who are named as a participating employer under the Plan: Aramco Services Company Aramco Associated Company Aramco Overseas Company B.V. Aramco Capital Company, LLC Saudi Petroleum International, Inc. Saudi Refining, Inc. Unless eligible Employees voluntarily waive participation in the RIP, they become Members as of their date of hire and remain Members until they receive all the RIP benefits to which they are entitled. Hourly or daily paid employees, leased employees, independent contractors, consultants and supplemental contract workers are excluded. This document describes the RIP benefits available to all Employees hired or rehired on or after October 1, Employees who were hired or last rehired prior to this date should refer to Appendix 1 for more information about their RIP benefits US RIP SPD FINAL Page 1 of 12 January 1, 2016
4 COST AND FUNDING The Company has paid the full cost of funding the RIP for U.S. based Employees since October 1, 1974, and for foreign based Employees since April 1, Prior to those dates, a portion of the cost was funded by mandatory Employee contributions. All Company and Employee contributions to the RIP are held in trust by the Trustee, JP Morgan Chase Bank, 270 Park Avenue, New York, N.Y or by Aetna, 151 Farmington Avenue, Hartford, Connecticut 06156, under a contractual agreement. These assets are held for the exclusive benefit of RIP Members and their beneficiaries. VESTING Vesting in the RIP occurs when a Member completes 5 years of Service or reaches age 60, whichever occurs first. If a Member terminates employment with the Company before becoming vested, no benefits are payable under the RIP. SERVICE For purposes of vesting and determining eligibility for retirement under the RIP, Service generally means employment with one of the Companies named above or certain other controlled Saudi Aramco subsidiaries. Service does not result in accrual of benefits under the RIP unless it counts as Accredited Service as summarized below. ACCREDITED SERVICE Accredited Service is earned for each year or fraction of a year of employment as a full-time salaried Employee with any of the Companies. Accredited Service is used to calculate a Member s RIP benefits. For Employees Whose Last Period of Employment Began Prior to October 1, 2013: Please refer to Appendix 1, Employees Hired or Rehired Before October 1, 2013 regarding Accredited Service for such Employees, which is limited to a maximum of 25 years, except as otherwise specified. For Employees Whose Last Period of Employment Began After September 30, 2013: Accredited Service is calculated in the same way for all work locations and is subject to a maximum credit of 30 years. In the case of a rehired Employee hired after September 30, 2013, prior periods of Accredited Service will be aggregated for eligibility for Retiree Medical and Retiree Life Insurance benefits. RIP FORMULA Your RIP benefit is determined by this formula: 2.0% x years of Accredited Service x final Average Earnings. Your RIP benefit is a monthly amount payable to you as an annuity starting at age 60. If you elect to begin your benefit before age 60 or elect a different payment option, the RIP benefit may be adjusted US RIP SPD FINAL Page 2 of 12 January 1, 2016
5 AVERAGE EARNINGS For purposes of calculating RIP benefits, an Employee s Average Earnings means the average of the 36 highest consecutive full months of base salary during the last 120 months of Service. Base salary means regular monthly base salary, excluding premiums, overtime pay, bonuses, payments under any incentive plans, allowances, living and other expenses and other income. RETIREMENT DATES Normal Retirement: An Employee s Normal Retirement Date is on the first day of the month following his or her 60 th birthday. However, if he or she was born on the 1 st day of the month, the Employee s 60 th birthday is the Normal Retirement Date. Late Retirement: If an Employee works beyond his or her Normal Retirement Date, then his or her late retirement date is the first day of the month following the month when employment terminates. Early Retirement: An Employee is eligible to elect to retire early if he or she is at least 50 years of age and has completed 10 or more years of Service. The Early Retirement Date for such eligible Employees is the first day of the month following the month when employment terminates. RIP BENEFITS (RETIREMENT ELIGIBLE) Normal or Late Retirement: The RIP annuity benefit at normal or late retirement is determined by multiplying 2.0% of the Employee s Average Earnings by the Employee s years of Accredited Service. Example: An Employee retires at age 60, on his Normal Retirement Date, with Average Earnings of $8,000 a month and 20 years of Accredited Service. The lifetime monthly annuity benefit from the RIP is: 2.0% x $8,000 x 20 = $ 3,200 Early Retirement: The RIP annuity benefit at early retirement is determined using the same formula as for normal or late retirement, multiplied by an Early Retirement Factor from the following schedule. The Early Retirement Factors are prorated for partial years based on the Employee s age at the Early Retirement Date. Age at Retirement Date Early Retirement Factor 60 or older 100% 59 97% 58 94% 57 91% 56 88% 55 85% 54 80% 53 75% 52 70% 2016 US RIP SPD FINAL Page 3 of 12 January 1, 2016
6 51 65% 50 60% Example: An Employee retires at age 55 with Average Earnings of $8,000 a month with 20 years of Accredited Service. The lifetime monthly annuity benefit that he or she would receive from the RIP is: 2.0% x $8,000 x 20 = $3,200 x 85% $2,720 TERMINATION BEFORE RETIREMENT ELIGIBILITY If an Employee terminates employment with the Company after 5 or more years of Service, then he or she has a vested right to the normal RIP retirement benefits accrued as of the date of termination which will be payable at his or her Normal Retirement Date. If elected by the Employee, a reduced RIP benefit is available prior to his or her Normal Retirement Date. If the Employee has at least 10 years of Service and elects to defer the Benefit Commencement Date until at least age 50, RIP benefits will be payable in a reduced amount in accordance with the following table: Age at Benefit Commencement Percentage Payable 60 (no reduction) 100% 59 97% 58 94% 57 91% 56 88% 55 85% 54 79% 53 73% 52 67% 51 60% 50 52% Example: An Employee terminates employment at age 45 with Average Earnings of $8,000 a month and 12 years of Accredited Service. If the Employee elects to defer the RIP Benefit Commencement Date until age 60, the lifetime monthly annuity benefit from the RIP is: $8,000 x 2.0% x 12 = $1,920 Example: An Employee terminates employment at age 45 with Average Earnings of $8,000 a month and 12 years of Accredited Service. If the Employee elects to defer the RIP Benefit Commencement Date until age 50, the lifetime monthly annuity benefit at age 50 is: $8,000 x 2.0% x 12 x 52% = $ US RIP SPD FINAL Page 4 of 12 January 1, 2016
7 Other discounting rules apply if an Employee elects to receive RIP benefits either before reaching normal retirement age 60 with less than 10 years of Service or before reaching early retirement age 50 with more than 10 years of Service. Before electing a RIP Benefit Commencement Date, it may be helpful for Employees to compare the lifetime monthly annuity benefit immediately available to the lifetime monthly annuity benefit available at various later dates. Members can obtain estimates of RIP benefits using various Benefit Commencement Dates at All vested terminated Employees have the right to elect to receive their accrued, actuarially adjusted RIP benefits under any annuity option or under the Cash Payment Option as described in the section Payment Methods below. DISABILITY If an Employee becomes totally and permanently disabled before age 60 and receives disability benefits under the Long-Term Disability Plan, his or her participation in the RIP continues until the Employee elects to receive RIP benefits at the time of termination of employment from the Company or at a later Benefit Commencement Date, up to the Employee s Normal Retirement Date. If he or she chooses to continue to participate in the RIP (and to defer receipt of RIP benefits), Accredited Service is granted for the period that disability benefits are received. The additional Accredited Service ceases on the Employee s elected retirement date or Normal Retirement Date, whichever comes first. For purposes of calculating Average Earnings of an Employee during the period that the Employee is receiving disability benefits under the Long-Term Disability Plan, the Employee s base salary at the time the Employee becomes disabled will be deemed to continue during the period of total and permanent disability. DEATH BENEFITS RIP death benefits depend upon whether death occurs before or after the Benefit Commencement Date. Death Before Benefit Commencement Date: If the death of a Member occurs during active employment or prior to the Benefit Commencement Date after termination of employment, the designated beneficiary can elect to receive a death benefit in the form of an annuity payable during the beneficiary s remaining life, based on a 100% Joint & Survivor Annuity calculated using the life expectancies of the Member and the beneficiary. Alternatively, the beneficiary may elect to receive a single lump sum payment of actuarial equivalent value based on the beneficiary s life expectancy. The beneficiary may elect to receive an annuity or lump sum payment as early as the first day of the month following the date of death. The beneficiary can choose to defer the Benefit Commencement Date, but not later than the end of the year after the year in which the Member died, unless the Member s surviving Spouse is the primary beneficiary, in which case the surviving Spouse can defer the Benefit Commencement Date until any time prior to the end of the year when the Member would have turned age 70½, if later than the end of the year following the year in which the Member died. A beneficiary must be designated in writing and submitted to the Personnel Office on forms available from Personnel. If an Employee is married at the time of death, the beneficiary will be the Employee s Spouse unless a written waiver signed by the Employee and Spouse was filed with Personnel prior to the Member s death in accordance with RIP procedures. Whether married 2016 US RIP SPD FINAL Page 5 of 12 January 1, 2016
8 or single, successive contingent beneficiaries may also be designated. A named beneficiary, whether primary or contingent, must be a natural person and may not be a corporation, trust or estate or more than one individual. If no beneficiary is designated, the beneficiary will be determined according to a hierarchy provided in the Plan. Death After Benefit Commencement Date: Upon the death of a Member after the Benefit Commencement Date, the death benefits payable will be determined by the form of RIP benefit payment elected. If the Life Annuity Option or Cash Payment Option was elected, then no additional benefits will be payable under the RIP upon the death of the Member. LIMITATIONS OR REDUCTIONS IN RIP BENEFITS In some situations, RIP benefits may be limited or subject to reduction, as follows: Under the Internal Revenue Code, there are several limitations on the maximum benefits that may be paid under qualified plans, including the RIP. There are limitations on the amount of Employee earnings used to calculate RIP benefits; on annual RIP benefits that may be paid under the RIP; and on lump sum amounts that can be paid. If benefits under the RIP are impacted by any of these limitations, the Company will make a payment to the Employee under the Supplementary Savings and Retirement Income Plan ( SRIP ), which is a nonqualified plan under the Internal Revenue Code, in an amount equal to the difference between what would have been payable absent these limitations and the amount which is payable after application of these limitations. These SRIP amounts are required to be paid to the Employee upon termination of employment. Amounts paid from a nonqualified plan such as the SRIP are taxable as ordinary income when paid by the Company and are not eligible for deferral or for a tax-free rollover. MULTIPLE PERIODS OF EMPLOYMENT Employees who terminate employment and are rehired on or after October 1, 2013 will have RIP benefits calculated only for the period of Accredited Service since the last calculation of a RIP benefit which resulted in an initial or additional vested benefit. Prior periods of Accredited Service will not be aggregated for the purpose of recalculating RIP payments, nor will prior RIP or Severance Award payments be used to offset any future RIP benefits. Multiple vested RIP benefits for multiple Periods of Employment for which a lump payment has not been paid will be aggregated to calculate the total RIP benefits earned. Prior periods of Service will be taken into account in determining eligibility for retiree medical and life insurance benefits. PAYMENT METHODS The RIP annuity benefit is calculated and paid in the form of a Life Annuity whereby monthly benefit payments are made to Members throughout their lifetimes, ceasing upon death. Unless both the Member and Spouse elect another form of payment as described below, if a Member is married when RIP benefit payments commence the benefits will be paid using the 100% Joint Annuity Option with the surviving Spouse as the joint annuitant. The surviving Spouse will receive 100% of the adjusted RIP benefits until death, at which time RIP benefits will cease. If an Employee terminates employment and does not elect to receive RIP benefits at that time, the payment of RIP benefits will automatically be deferred. If RIP benefits are deferred, the Member may not subsequently elect a retroactive Benefit Commencement Date; i.e., RIP benefits 2016 US RIP SPD FINAL Page 6 of 12 January 1, 2016
9 are payable only following the election of a Benefit Commencement Date in the future and RIP benefits are computed as of that later date. The elected Benefit Commencement Date must be the first day of a subsequent month. The Benefit Commencement Date may not be deferred to a month later than the first of the month following attainment of age 62, or 60 days after the close of the RIP plan year in which the Employee terminates employment, whichever occurs later. If the Member has not made a valid written election by that time, then RIP benefits will automatically be paid in the form of a Life Annuity (if the Member is single) or the 100% Joint Annuity Option (if the Member is married). Instead of the payment methods described above (Life Annuity or 100% Joint Annuity Option), a Member may elect any of the following alternative optional payment methods. An election must be made in writing, properly executed and submitted to the Personnel Office, or to Milliman if the Member is retired, on forms available online at Properly executed forms submitted to Personnel will be provided by Personnel to Milliman. If married, the consent of the Spouse to any of these alternative optional payment methods must be witnessed by a representative from the Personnel Office or by a notary public or consular official. Five Years Certain Life Annuity Option: Under this option, the Member will receive adjusted monthly RIP benefits payments for his or her lifetime. If death occurs within 5 years after these monthly payments commence, the beneficiary will receive the amount that the Member would have received each month for the balance of the 5 year guaranteed payment period. 50% Joint Annuity Option: Under this option, the Member elects to receive adjusted RIP benefits payments during his or her lifetime, with benefits continuing after the Member s death for so long as the joint annuitant lives. The amount of the adjustment depends upon the age and resulting life expectancy of the person named as the joint annuitant. Both the Member and the joint annuitant must be living when payments start for this option to be effective. Once payments commence, even if the joint annuitant dies before the Member, under this option the Member will continue to receive the same adjusted benefits under this previously elected option. Cash Payment Option: Whether or not eligible for retirement at the time of termination of employment from the Company, under this payment method the Member may elect to receive a cash lump sum payment in lieu of receiving an annuity. The amount of the lump sum is equal to the present value of the Life Annuity payments to which the Member is entitled, using factors based upon average life expectancy and specified interest rates. The applicable interest rate used to calculate the lump sum payment under this option will be the Minimum Present Value Segment rates as published periodically by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. The Employee will receive the greater of the benefit calculated using (1) the average of the 24 monthly average Minimum Present Value Segment rates for each rate segment; or (2) the Minimum Present Value Segment rates for each rate segment for the single month four months prior to the Benefit Commencement Date. If the Cash Payment Option is elected and as a result of actions or delays by the Company the lump sum payment is not distributed within 60 days of the Benefit Commencement Date, interest will be paid for the period beginning at the Benefit Commencement Date and ending on the date of distribution of the lump sum payment. Simple (not compounded) interest will be computed using the same interest rate as the rate used in computing the lump sum payment under the Cash Payment Option. If the Member qualifies for a Severance Award under Saudi Labor Law, the RIP benefits attributable to Company contributions are used to satisfy this obligation. If the Severance Award exceeds the Cash Payment Option value of the RIP benefits attributable to Company contributions, the balance of the Severance Award is payable by the Company, not by the RIP US RIP SPD FINAL Page 7 of 12 January 1, 2016
10 Employees who are rehired and receive credit for prior service under the break-in-service rules are subject to an offset of any Severance Award payments previously paid. Benefits provided under the RIP cannot be pledged, assigned, encumbered or garnished in payment of any debt. However, the RIP will comply with a proper court order (such as a Qualified Domestic Relations Order). BREAK IN SERVICE Beginning with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ( ERISA ), and on several occasions since, the U.S. Government has established or modified the rules governing the computation of benefit entitlements of employees who have a break in service. The statutes and related regulations impact the aggregation of service periods both for vesting Service and for Accredited Service. The calculation of Service and Accredited Service under the RIP upon rehire depend upon the Employee s prior length of Service, prior termination date(s) and subsequent rehire date(s). Upon rehire every Employee is provided a letter stating whether or not prior Service and Accredited Service (before the latest hire date) qualify for restoration. HOW TO APPLY FOR BENEFITS All applications for RIP benefits should be filed on the appropriate forms with the Personnel Office or Milliman, which can be reached at , or online at RIP benefits may also be paid in accordance with a Qualified Domestic Relations Order which has been filed with Milliman, the QDRO Administrator, if the order meets all applicable requirements. Retirement income (annuity) benefits are paid directly by Aetna, 151 Farmington Avenue, Hartford, CT Cash Payment Option lump sum amounts are calculated by Milliman and paid by Vanguard. Any information on your benefit should be requested through Milliman. Employees may at any time obtain estimates of their projected RIP benefits at after the participant establishes log-in credentials. RIP ADMINISTRATOR The RIP Administrator is the Saudi Arabian Oil Company. The RIP Administrator's address is Saudi Arabian Oil Company, Attn: Corporate Benefits Advisor, Box 5000, Dhahran 31311, Saudi Arabia. The Company and the Benefits Plan Review Committee administer the Plan in accordance with the written terms and provisions of the RIP, which legally governs all aspects of the administration of the RIP. CLAIM APPEAL If an application for payment of RIP benefits is denied, the Member or beneficiary will receive written notification stating the reasons for denial and referencing the applicable RIP provisions. Following denial in whole or in part, an appeal for reconsideration may be submitted to the Secretary, Benefits Plan Review Committee, c/o Saudi Arabian Oil Company, Attn: Corporate Benefits Advisor, Box 5000, Dhahran 31311, Saudi Arabia, within 60 days after receiving the 2016 US RIP SPD FINAL Page 8 of 12 January 1, 2016
11 denial. Any such request should be accompanied by documents or records in support of the appeal. The Benefits Plan Review Committee will respond in writing with their decision within 60 days after receipt of the appeal. Comparable procedures are available for seeking clarification of rights to future benefits under the Plan. The Benefits Plan Review Committee has the exclusive right to construe and interpret the terms of the RIP and to resolve any ambiguities, and with respect to such matters the Committee s decision will be final. No action at law or in equity shall be brought to recover benefits under this Retirement Income Plan until the appeal rights herein provided have been exercised, all administrative procedures under the RIP have been exhausted and the RIP benefits requested in such appeal have been denied in whole or in part. Any action brought in state or federal court must be commenced within one year after the cause of action accrues. PENSION BENEFIT GUARANTY CORPORATION Benefits under the RIP are insured by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation ( PBGC ). Generally, the PBGC guarantees most normal retirement benefits, early retirement benefits, certain disability benefits and survivor's pensions. However, the PBGC does not guarantee all types of benefits under qualified plans and the amount of benefit protection is subject to certain limitations. The PBGC guarantees certain vested benefits at the level in effect on the date of plan termination. However, if a plan has been in effect less than five years before termination or if benefits have been increased within the five years before plan termination, the whole amount of the plan's vested benefits or the benefit increase may not be guaranteed. In addition, there is a ceiling on the amount of monthly benefits that the PBGC guarantees, which is adjusted periodically. For more information on the PBGC insurance protection and its limitations, ask the RIP Administrator or the PBGC. Inquiries to the PBGC should be addressed to the Office of Communications, PBGC, 1200 K Street N.W., Washington, D.C The PBGC Office of Communications may also be reached by calling AMENDMENT AND TERMINATION OF PLAN Saudi Aramco reserves the right to amend or terminate the RIP at any time; provided, however, that no such amendment or termination shall affect the right to any unpaid benefit of a Member while covered by this RIP. Any amendment of the RIP shall be effected through the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors or, where appropriate, the Chief Executive Officer, his authorized delegate, or as otherwise authorized under the RIP. If the RIP should ever be discontinued, its assets would be used to provide accrued benefits to Members as required by U.S. law and the RIP. SUMMARY PLAN DESCRIPTION This is only a summary of key provisions of the RIP. The RIP is governed by formal plan documents, the terms of which are controlling over the information in this summary US RIP SPD FINAL Page 9 of 12 January 1, 2016
12 Appendix 1: Employees Whose Last Period of Employment Began before October 1, 2013 This Appendix 1 applies to Employees whose last Period of Employment began prior to October 1, Most rules and procedures described previously in this Summary Plan Description which apply to Employees hired or rehired on or after October 1, 2013 generally apply to such Employees, with the exception of the following: (1) The Accredited Service and accrual rate which applies to the calculation of the single life annuity of the Employee; (2) The interest rate applicable in calculating the lump sum payment under the Cash Payment Option; (3) The applicable mortality tables and joint and survivor annuity tables; and (4) he manner of calculating benefits for multiple Periods of Employment. In summary, for Employees whose last Period of Employment began before October 1, 2013, RIP benefits will be calculated using the interest rate policies, accrual rates, mortality tables, and methodology and procedures in effect prior to amendments to the RIP which apply to Employees hired and rehired after September 30, ACCREDITED SERVICE Before January 1, 1992: For Employees with Accredited Service Before January 1, 1992: For purposes of calculating benefits, Accredited Service means the period of an Employee s participation in the RIP through and including December 31, 1991, calculated as follows: One and one-half years for each year of foreign specified service up to a maximum of 25 years, plus One year for each year of foreign non-specified service, domestic service, or foreign specified service in excess of 25 years of foreign specified service. There is no maximum on the total cumulative Accredited Service before Service with Star Enterprise, Chevron Corporation, Texaco Inc., Exxon Corporation, Mobil Oil Corporation or their successors does not count as Accredited Service under this RIP. After December 31, 1991: Accredited Service earned on and after January 1, 1992 is the same for all work locations and is subject to a maximum credit of 25 years, exclusive of Accredited Service earned through December 31, Accredited Service is earned for each year or fraction of a year of employment. RIP ACCRUAL RATE The accrual rate for Employees whose last Period of Employment began before October 1, 2013 shall be 2.4% for Accredited Service after Thus, the RIP annuity benefit at normal or late retirement for such Employees will be calculated under the following formula: the sum of (1) the Employee s Average Earnings multiplied by 1.6% for years of Accredited Service before 1992 multiplied by the number of years of Accredited Service before 1992; plus (2) the Employee s Average Earnings multiplied by 2.4% multiplied by the number of years of Accredited Service after US RIP SPD FINAL Page 10 of 12 January 1, 2016
13 CASH PAYMENT OPTION INTEREST RATE The amount of the lump sum payable under the Cash Payment Option is equal to the present value of the Life Annuity payments to which the Member is entitled, using factors based upon average life expectancy and specified interest rates. The applicable interest rate used to calculate the lump sum payment under this option is the average of the 24 monthly averages of the U.S. 30 Year Treasury Securities rates, as published by the Internal Revenue Service, minus 2% from each month s average rate, and with each month s average rate subject to a 2% floor. Should the actual average U.S. 30 Year Treasury Securities rate for any month be below 2%, the 2% floor will not apply to that month s average rate. The 24 month period ends with the fourth month prior to the Benefit Commencement Date when the lump sum payment will be paid. For example, in determining the 24 months average rate used in calculating a May 1, 2014 lump sum payment, the monthly average of the U.S. 30 Year Treasury Securities rate for each month (less 2% and subject to a 2% floor) beginning with February 2012 and ending with January 2014 would be used. APPLICABLE MORTALITY AND JOINT AND SURVIVOR TABLES The applicable mortality tables, joint and survivor tables, and all other factors and procedures used in calculating RIP benefits for Employees whose last Period of Employment began before October 1, 2013 remain unchanged from those Tables, factors and procedures applicable and in effect prior to the amendments to the RIP which apply to Employees hired or rehired after September 30, MULTIPLE PERIODS OF EMPLOYMENT The benefit for an Employee who had more than one vested Period of Employment beginning before October 1, 2013 is calculated by applying the Employee s Average Earnings at the time of retirement or other termination to the Employee s total Accredited Service for all Periods of Employment. If benefits were paid with respect to an earlier Period of Employment the amount of the final accrued benefit will be reduced by the actuarial equivalent value of the benefits previously paid, applying actuarial factors described in the Plan US RIP SPD FINAL Page 11 of 12 January 1, 2016
