MMC Benefits Handbook
Dividends on Marsh & McLennan Companies Shares and Stock Voting Rights
As a shareholder you are entitled to receive dividends declared, if any, on any Company common stock that you own, including shares acquired through Plan participation, provided that you still own the shares on the record date for that dividend. The record date is the date set by the Company on which you must own shares in order to be eligible to receive a declared dividend. If you have a balance in the MMC Stock Fund, you are entitled to receive current payment of your share of dividends declared, if any, on shares of Marsh & McLennan Companies common stock held in the MMC Stock Fund, on the record date for dividend payments. You are always 100% Vested in these dividends, even if you are not fully vested in your Company contribution account (this right does not apply to any other Investment Funds).
In no event may dividends for a Plan year be paid later than 90 days following the end of that Plan year.
Notwithstanding the Company's payment of dividends in the past, the existence of a dividend payout schedule, or any other fact or circumstance, the payment of dividends in the future is never guaranteed.
Any dividends are determined and declared in the discretion of the Marsh & McLennan Companies Board.
