Footnotes:

1Includes participants in plans providing a fixed benefit amount. Dollar amounts can be a flat amount or can vary by the employee’s
earnings or length of service.

2The 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 90th percentiles designate position within each published series. For example, at the 50th percentile
or median, half of participating workers receive the same as or more than the amount shown, and half receive the same as or less than the
amount shown. At the 25th percentile, one-fourth of participating workers receive the same or less than the amount shown. The remaining
percentiles follow the same logic.

NOTE: For definitions of major plans, key provisions, and related terms, see the "Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at
