A membership is a new legal plan membership or stand-alone identity theft plan. If an individual has any plan active with the Company (or has had an active plan of any type within the last six months) the plan is not a new membership and does not count for Bonus Level. All commissions will be earned at the “Base Level” unless the General Agency qualifies for a “Bonus Level”. The General Agency will qualify with membership sales processed in one month to be paid the “Bonus Level” on memberships processed during the next calendar month. Qualification for “Bonus Levels” is based on membership sales, (not production counters). A membership is a new legal plan membership or stand-alone identity theft plan. If an individual has any plan active with the Company (or has had an active plan of any type within the last six months) the plan is not a new membership. First Year Commission Levels – Family Plans Base Level Sales Per Month Earned Bonus Level 2 Bonus Level 3 Bonus Level 4 Bonus Level 5 Bonus Level 6 Below 50 51 – 74 75 – 99 100 – 124 125 – 149 150 + 16% 19.5% 20.2% 20.8% 21.2% 21.4% Example: The General Agency processes 50 sales in the month of June. All 50 sales will be paid at 16% of the annual membership fees for each membership processed. In July all memberships processed will be paid at Bonus Level 1, or 19.5%, of the annual membership fees for each membership processed.
  • 42. General Agency Commission Structure – 48% • All commission amounts are expressed as a percentage of the annual membership fees paid by the individual member and are amounts paid to the General Agency as the writing agent. Amounts shown are the commission percentages applicable to LS’s standard plan memberships, business plans and the standard identity theft plan. Commission percentages for specialty plans may vary from the percentages shown. The additional $3.00 per month membership fee for the identity theft tri-bureau monitoring plan is not commissionable. Percentages shown represent the total amount of commissions available including the indicated bonus level. • All commissions will be advanced at the “Base Level” unless the General Agency qualifies for a “Bonus Level”. The General Agency will qualify with membership sales processed in one month to be paid the “Bonus Level” on memberships processed during the next calendar month. Qualification for “Bonus Levels” is based on membership sales, (not production counters). A membership is a new legal plan membership or stand-alone identity theft plan. If an individual has any plan active with the Company (or has had an active plan of any type within the last six months) the plan is not a new membership. • First year commissions are the commissions advanced for the first 12 months of the membership life. Renewal commissions are earned in all months thereafter. Renewals vary depending upon the commission (bonus) level achieved by the General Agency and the Monthly Retention Rate of all memberships sold in a given calendar month through the General Agency or any other entity sponsored by the General Agency. • Renewals are amounts the General Agency will earn on memberships that “renew” or continue paying after the first 12 months of the life of the membership. Since the General Agency receives a commission advance amount representing commissions for the first 12 months of payments made, all additional payments made by the member after month 12 represent renewal payments. The General Agency will begin earnings renewals beginning with the member’s 13 payment. Renewal earnings for months 13-15 are applied in month 16 (cumulative), after a three month evaluation period. All earnings will first be applied to any outstanding Debit Balance. Once the Debit Balance is recovered, future earnings will be paid to the General Agency. • The Monthly Retention Rate of the memberships will be calculated by dividing the active memberships for a given production month by the total number of memberships originally processed during that month. The Monthly Retention Rate will be determined at the end of the 15 month for each production month and will thereafter remain the same fixed amount for the remaining life of memberships processed that month.

All 50 sales will be paid at 48% of the annual membership fees for each membership processed. In July all memberships processed will be paid at Bonus Level 2, or 58.4%, of the annual membership fees for each membership processed.

General Agency Commission Structure – 48% Annual Renewal Commissions – Family Plans Monthly Retention Rate Base Level Bonus Level 2 Bonus Level 3 Bonus Level 4 Bonus Level 5 Bonus Level 6 Up to 55% 3.02% 3.67% 3.81% 3.91% 3.99% 4.03% 56% to 65% 6.04% 7.34% 7.63% 7.83% 7.99% 8.07% 66% to 75% 9.05% 11.02% 11.44% 11.74% 11.98% 12.10% 76% to 85% 12.07% 14.69% 15.25% 15.65% 15.98% 16.14% Above 85% 15.09% 18.36% 19.06% 19.57% 19.97% 20.17% Annual Renewal Commission rates can range from 3.02% to 20.17% of annual membership fees for each plan processed, dependent upon the commission (bonus) level of the General Agency and the Monthly Retention Rate for the given calendar month. Example: The General Agency processed 10 memberships at Bonus Level 3 in June 2011. At the end of August 2012 (15 months of membership life) 7 members are still active. The Monthly Retention Rate for those memberships would be 70% (7/10 = .70, or 70%). The Annual Renewal Commission percentage paid to the General Agency would be 11.44% of the annual membership fees paid by each member processed in June 2011, and would continue at this rate for the life of each membership. This is illustrated in the chart above at the point where the column ‘Bonus Level 3’ and row ‘66 to 75%’ intersect.
