You will be eligible for annual awards of equity equal to 300% of your base salary. This award will be granted 60% in performance stock awards (PSA) and 40% in stock options and is typically granted in February.
Equity awards are generally granted annually, with manager discretion and with the approval of The Allstate Corporation Board of Directors.
Stock options generally have a ten-year term and vest one third on each of the first, second, and third anniversaries of the grant date.

Performance Stock Awards that are earned will convert into shares of Allstate stock on the third anniversary of the grant date. In addition, PSAs accumulate quarterly dividend equivalents in cash payable upon vesting. As a senior executive, you are subject to stock ownership guidelines and retention requirements.
Sign-on Bonus - Cash and Equity:
You will be eligible to receive a cash sign-on bonus of $4,000,000, less applicable withholdings, payable in two installments: $2,000,000 payable within 60 days of your start date with the balance of $2,000,000 payable within 30 days after the 1st anniversary of your start date. You must be employed by Allstate on the dates each installments payable in order to receive the sign-on bonus. If you terminate your employment with Allstate within 24 months of either sign-on payment date, within 30 days of the date of your termination, you must repay to Allstate a prorated amount calculated over a 24-month period from the payment date. For purposes of determining the proration, each payment will be treated as a separate payment and any proration calculated over a 24-month period from the payment date.
Also, you will be eligible to receive an equity sign-on bonus of $4,000,000 to be granted in restricted stock units. The restricted stock units will be granted to you on the third business day on which the New York Stock Exchange is open for trading of the month immediately following your first day of employment.
Restricted stock units will become 100% vested on the day prior to the third anniversary of the grant date.
