On December 11, 2012, the Executive Compensation Committee of State Street Corporation's Board of Directors approved an amendment to State Street's Executive Supplemental Retirement Plan to reduce the amount of the annual defined contribution benefits for the 2013 compensation year. As participants in the plan, the amendment affects each of the officers identified as “named executive officers” for compensation disclosure purposes in State Street's 2012 proxy statement.
State Street maintains the plan to provide senior executives with competitive retirement benefits and to encourage their continued employment. The plan provides a defined contribution retirement benefit. This benefit is the subject of the December 2012 amendment. The plan also provides a defined benefit component, although this component has been frozen for all of the named executive officers and was replaced by the defined contribution benefit. The plan is described in State Street's 2012 proxy statement.
Pursuant to the amendment, the 2013 annual defined contribution credit for each of the named executive officers was reduced from $200,000 to zero. The annual $200,000 deferred stock grant for each of the named executive officers under the plan was not affected by the amendment. All defined contributions under the plan are subject to retirement eligibility and vesting.
The amendment applies to the 2013 compensation year (with contributions for that year scheduled to be credited in the first quarter of 2014) and does not affect contributions for the 2012 compensation year (scheduled to be credited in the first quarter of 2013) or for compensation years subsequent to 2013.
The named executive officers identified for compensation disclosure purposes in State Street's 2012 proxy statement are: Joseph L. Hooley, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer; Edward J. Resch, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Joseph C. Antonellis, Vice Chairman; James S. Phalen, Executive Vice President; and Scott F. Powers, President and Chief Executive Officer of State Street Global Advisors.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
