1.93 Period of Severance.

See Section2.03(a)(6) for rules regarding eligibility and Section7.05(b) for rules regarding vesting.
(6) Elapsed Time method. Instead of counting actual Hours of Service in applying the minimum service requirements under this Section2.03, if allowed under AA §4-3, the Employer may elect to apply the Elapsed Time method for calculating an Employees service with the Employer. Under the Elapsed Time method, an Employee receives credit for the aggregate period of time worked for the Employer commencing with the Employees first day of employment (or reemployment, if applicable) and ending on the date the Employee begins a Period of Severance which lasts at least 12 consecutive months. In calculating an Employees aggregate period of service, an Employee receives credit for any Period of Severance that lasts less than 12 consecutive months. If an Employees aggregate period of service includes fractional years, such fractional years are expressed in terms of days.
(i) Change to Elapsed Time method. If the service crediting method is changed from an Hours of Service method to the Elapsed Time method, the amount of service credited to an Employee will equal the sum of the service under subsections (A)and (B)below. For this purpose, a change in service crediting method will occur if the Plan is amended to change the service crediting method or if the service crediting method is changed as a result of an Employees change in employment status.
(b)Elapsed Time Vesting. Unless otherwise provided by the Employer in Section 1.08, vesting shall be determined based on the elapsed time method. For purposes of the elapsed time method, “Years of Service” means, with respect to any Participant or Inactive Participant, the number of whole years of his periods of service with the Employer and any Related Employers (as defined in Section 2.01(a)(26)(A)), subject to any exclusion elected by the Employer in Section 1.08(c). A Participant or Inactive Participant will receive credit for the aggregate of all time period(s) commencing with his Employment Commencement Date and ending on the date a break in service begins, unless any such years are excluded by Section 1.08(c). A Participant or Inactive Participant will also receive credit for any period of severance of less than 12 consecutive months. Fractional periods of a year will be expressed in terms of days.
