Page 47 Honeywell International Inc. established the Honeywell Retirement Earnings Plan (the ―Plan‖) effective January 1, 2000 which introduced a new simplified lump sum benefit formula, referred to as the ―lump sum formula.‖ Honeywell employees covered by certain pension formulas at that time were offered the opportunity to be covered by the new lump sum formula or to remain covered by their ―traditional‖ AlliedSignal or Honeywell pension plan formulas (―Pension Choice‖). The Plan therefore consists of the lump sum formula as well as the traditional benefit formulas for those employees who elected to remain covered by those traditional formulas (―Old Formulas‖). The Old Formulas are also relevant for employees who elected to be covered by the lump sum formula, since they have a minimum ―grandfathered‖ or ―frozen‖ benefit (―Protected Benefit‖) under the Old Formulas that must be compared to the benefits provided under the lump sum formula. Such employees receive the greater of the lump sum formula benefit or the Protected Benefit under the Old Formula. This Summary Plan Description (SPD) provides information about the basic features of one of the Old Formulas—the Bendix Salaried Formula. You should read this SPD if you elected to remain covered by the Bendix Salaried Formula during Pension Choice. This SPD is also relevant to you if you were covered by the Bendix Salaried Formula before Pension Choice but elected the lump sum formula during Pension Choice. This SPD describes how your Protected Benefit under the Bendix Salaried Formula is calculated. There are other Old Formulas that may apply to you or other groups of Honeywell employees. These Old Formulas are described in separate SPDs. If you think you may be covered by Old Formulas other than the Bendix Salaried Formula and want to request the SPD that applies to you, call One Stop—Your Employee Services Access Line at 1-877-258-3699 and select option 5 for Retirement and Pension Benefits. In the event of any inconsistency or conflict between this SPD and the Plan document, or any omission from or ambiguity in the terms of the SPD, the Plan document will control. Terms starting with capital letters throughout this SPD are defined in the appropriate section or in Section 8 - Definitions. The Company intends to continue the Plan. However, it reserves the right to modify, change, revise, amend or terminate the Plan at any time, for any reason. Section 1 — Why Should I Read This SPD? You should read this SPD if all or a portion of your pension benefit is calculated under the Bendix Salaried Formula. Your pension benefit may be calculated under the Bendix Salaried Formula if:  You participated in the Bendix Salaried Formula at one time, but you later transferred to a new work location that provides a different pension plan or formula.  You elected to remain in the Bendix Salaried Formula during Pension Choice.  You elected to be covered by the lump sum formula during Pension Choice, but you participated in the Bendix Salaried Formula immediately before Pension Choice. This SPD describes the important features of the Bendix Salaried Formula. It will help you understand how your benefits are calculated and paid. However, special provisions apply to the calculation of your benefits under the Bendix Salaried Formula if you elected to be covered under the lump sum formula. You have a Protected Benefit under the Bendix Salaried Formula that is always compared to your benefit under the lump sum formula. Your benefits under the lump sum formula are not described in this SPD. For specific information about those benefits, you should obtain a copy of the Retirement Earnings Formula SPD
