would have been paid to the Participant before the date the first installment is actually paid if the first installment had been paid on the Commencement Date, without interest. Each subsequent payment shall be made in accordance with Interpublic’s standard semi-monthly payroll schedule.
Employment with Another Interpublic Agency. If a Participant is Dismissed but is later hired or rehired by Interpublic or a Subsidiary, the amount of each remaining semi-monthly payment required by subsections (a) and (b), above, shall be reduced (but not below zero) by the amount of the base salary payable to the Participant for the applicable semi-monthly pay period under the terms of his re-employment.
Death. If a Participant dies after being Dismissed or being notified that he will be Dismissed, but before receiving his entire Salary Continuation Benefit, Interpublic shall pay to the Participant’s estate an amount equal to the portion of the Participant’s Salary Continuation Benefit that has not yet been paid to the Participant. Such payment shall be made in a lump sum (without any discount or interest to reflect the time value of money) as soon as practicable after the Participant’s death. For purposes of this Section 4.1(d), if the Participant’s death occurs before his Termination Date, the date of his death shall be treated as his Termination Date.
Separate Payments. For purposes of section 409A of the Code, each installment required by this Section 4.1 shall be treated as a separate payment.
4.2. Cash in Lieu of Continuing Medical, Dental, and Vision Benefits.
If a Participant is Dismissed, separates from service, and timely executes and submits to Interpublic the agreement required by Article 5, Interpublic shall make cash payments to the Participant in lieu of continuing medical, dental, and vision benefits, in accordance with the following provisions:
Subject to the provisions of Sections 4.4, 4.5, and 5.1, the amount of the payment for each month from the first month that begins after the Participant’s Termination Date through the last day of the Participant’s Severance Period shall equal 167 percent of the excess of:
The aggregate premium or premiums that the Participant would be required to pay for medical, dental, and vision coverage for such month at the level elected by the Participant in accordance with the terms of the applicable plan or plans, purchased through COBRA continuation coverage, over
The active employee rate for such coverage for such month. The “active employee rate” means the rate charged to an active employee who holds the position that the Participant held (or, if none, the employee who holds the position most nearly comparable to the position that the Participant held) immediately before his Termination Date for the same level of coverage under such plan or plans.
