STOCK OPTIONS 6.1 Grant of Options. Subject to the provisions of Section 4.1, Options may be granted to Participants at such time or times as shall be determined by the Committee. Options granted under the Plan may be of two types: (i) Incentive Stock Options and (ii) Nonstatutory Stock Options. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Committee shall have complete discretion in determining the number of Options, if any, to be granted to a Participant. Each Option shall be evidenced by an Option agreement that shall specify the type of Option granted, the exercise price, the duration of the Option, the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Option pertains, and such other terms and conditions as the Committee shall determine which are not inconsistent with the provisions of the Plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Options granted to a Participant who is an Agent shall comply with the provisions of Section 4228 of the New York Insurance Law and any regulations thereunder. 6.2 Option Price. Nonstatutory Stock Options and Incentive Stock Options granted pursuant to the Plan shall have an exercise price no less than the Fair Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the date the Option is granted. 6.3 Exercise of Options. One-third of each Nonstatutory Stock Option or Incentive Stock Option granted pursuant to the Plan shall become exercisable on each of the first three anniversaries of the date such Option is granted; provided that in no event shall any Option be or become exercisable hereunder prior to the second anniversary of the Initial Public Offering and, if and to the extent this proviso limits the exercisability of any Option, the portion so limited shall become exercisable on such second anniversary; provided, further, that the Committee may at the time of grant establish longer periods of service for Options to become exercisable and may establish performance-based criteria for exercisability. Subject to the provisions of Article VII, once any portion of any Option has become exercisable it shall remain exercisable for its full term. The Committee shall determine the term of each Nonstatutory Stock Option or Incentive Stock Option granted, but in no event shall any such Option be exercisable for more than 10 years after the date on which it is granted. 6.4 Payment. The Committee shall establish procedures governing the exercise of Options. No shares shall be delivered pursuant to any exercise of an Option unless arrangements satisfactory to the Committee have been made to assure full payment of the option price therefor. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, payment of the option price may be made (i) in cash or its equivalent, (ii) by exchanging shares of Common Stock owned by the optionee (which are not the subject of any pledge or other security interest), (iii) through an arrangement with a broker approved by the Company whereby payment of the exercise price is accomplished with the proceeds of the sale of 8 Common Stock or (iv) by any combination of the foregoing; provided that the combined value of all cash and cash equivalents paid and the Fair Market Value of any such Common Stock so tendered to the Company, valued as of the date of such tender, is at least equal to such option price. The Company may not make a loan to a Participant to facilitate such Participant's exercise of any of his or her Options. 6.5 Incentive Stock Options. Notwithstanding anything in the Plan to the contrary, no Option that is intended to be an Incentive Stock Option may be granted after the tenth anniversary of the effective date of the Plan and no term of this Plan relating to Incentive Stock Options shall be interpreted, amended or altered, nor shall any discretion or authority granted under the Plan be exercised, so as to disqualify the Plan under Section 422 of the Code, or, without the consent of any Participant affected thereby, to disqualify any Incentive Stock Option under such Section 422. ARTICLE VII. TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT 7.1 Termination of Employment Due to Death. In the event a Participant's employment terminates by reason of death, any Options granted to such Participant shall become immediately exercisable in full and may be exercised by the Participant's designated beneficiary, and if none is named, in accordance with Section 10.2, at any time prior to the expiration of the term of the Options or within three (3) years (or such shorter period as the Committee shall determine at the time of grant) following the Participant's death, whichever period is shorter. 7.2 Termination of Employment Due to Disability or Approved Retirement. In the event a Participant's employment terminates by reason of Disability or Approved Retirement, any Options granted to such Participant which are then outstanding shall continue to become exercisable in accordance with Section 6.3 notwithstanding such termination of employment and may be exercised by the Participant or the Participant's designated beneficiary, and if none is named, in accordance with Section 10.2, at any time prior to the expiration date of the term of the Options or within three (3) years (or such shorter period as the Committee shall determine at the time of grant) following the Participant's termination of employment, whichever period is shorter. 7.3 Certain Divestitures, etc. In the event that a Participant's employment is terminated in connection with a sale, divestiture, spin-off or other similar transaction involving a Subsidiary, division or business segment or unit, the Committee may provide at the time of grant or otherwise that all or any portion of any Options granted to such Participant which are then outstanding shall continue to become exercisable in 9 accordance with Section 6.3 notwithstanding such termination of employment and may be exercised by the Participant or the Participant's designated beneficiary, and if none is named, in accordance with Section 10.2, at any time prior to the expiration date of the term of the Options or within three (3) years (or such shorter period as the Committee shall determine at or following the time of grant) following the Participant's termination of employment, whichever period is shorter. 7.4 Termination of Employment for Cause. In the event a Participant's employment is terminated for Cause, any Options granted to such Participant that are then not yet exercised shall be forfeited. 7.5 Termination of Employment for Any Other Reason. Unless otherwise determined by the Committee at or following the time of grant, in the event the employment of the Participant shall terminate for any reason other than one described in Section 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 or 7.4, any Options granted to such Participant which are exercisable at the date of the Participant's termination of employment may be exercised at any time prior to the expiration of the term of the Options or the thirtieth day following the Participant's termination of employment, whichever period is shorter, and any Options that are not exercisable at the time of termination of employment shall be forfeited. ARTICLE VIII. CHANGE OF CONTROL 8.1 Accelerated Vesting and Payment. Subject to the provisions of Section 8.2, in the event of a Change of Control each Option shall be fully exercisable regardless of the exercise schedule otherwise applicable to such Option and, in connection with such a Change of Control, the Committee may, in its discretion, provide that each Option shall, upon the occurrence of such Change of Control, be canceled in exchange for a payment in an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the Change of Control Price over the exercise price for such Option. 8.2 Alternative Awards. Notwithstanding Section 8.1, no cancellation, acceleration of exercisability, vesting, cash settlement or other payment shall occur with respect to any Option if the Committee reasonably determines in good faith prior to the occurrence of a Change of Control that such Option shall be honored or assumed, or new rights substituted therefor (such honored, assumed or substituted award hereinafter called an 'Alternative Award'), by a Participant's employer (or the parent or an affiliate of such employer) immediately following the Change of Control; provided that any such Alternative Award must: 10 (i) be based on stock which is traded on an established securities market, or that the Committee reasonably believes will be so traded within 60 days after the Change of Control; (ii) provide such Participant with rights and entitlements substantially equivalent to or better than the rights, terms and conditions applicable under such Option, including, but not limited to, an identical or better exercise or vesting schedule and identical or better timing and methods of payment; (iii) have substantially equivalent economic value to such Option (determined at the time of the Change of Control); and (iv) have terms and conditions which provide that in the event that the Participant's employment is involuntarily terminated or constructively terminated, any conditions on a Participant's rights under, or any restrictions on transfer or exercisability applicable to, each such Alternative Award shall be waived or shall lapse, as the case may be. For this purpose, a constructive termination shall mean a termination of employment by a Participant following a material reduction in the Participant's base salary or a Participant's incentive compensation opportunity or a material reduction in the Participant's responsibilities, in either case without the Participant's written consent. ARTICLE IX. AMENDMENT, MODIFICATION, AND TERMINATION OF PLAN The Board at any time may terminate the Plan, and from time to time may amend or modify the Plan; provided, however, that any amendment which would (i) increase the number of shares available for issuance under the Plan, (ii) lower the minimum exercise price at which an Option may be granted or (iii) extend the maximum term for Options granted hereunder shall be subject to the approval of the Company's shareholders and no amendment made prior to the fifth anniversary of the Demutualization shall be or become effective without the consent of the New York Superintendent of Insurance. No amendment, modification, or termination of the Plan shall in any manner adversely affect any Option theretofore granted under the Plan, without the consent of the Participant. 11 SECTION X. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS 10.1 Transferability of Options. No Options granted under the Plan may be sold, transferred, pledged, assigned, or otherwise alienated or hypothecated, other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution; provided that the Committee may, in the Option agreement or otherwise, permit transfers of Nonstatutory Stock Options by gift or a domestic relations order to Family Members. 10.2 Beneficiary Designation. Each Participant under the Plan may from time to time name any beneficiary or beneficiaries (who may be named contingently or successively) to whom any benefit under the Plan is to be paid or by whom any right under the Plan is to be exercised in case of his death. Each designation will revoke all prior designations by the same Participant, shall be in a form prescribed by the Committee, and will be effective only when received by the Committee in writing during his lifetime. In the absence of any such effective designation, benefits remaining unpaid at the Participant's death shall be paid to or exercised by the Participant's surviving spouse, if any, or otherwise to or by his estate. 10.3 Deferral of Payment. The Committee may, in the Option agreement or otherwise, permit a Participant to elect, upon such terms and conditions as the Committee may establish, to defer receipt of shares of Common Stock that would otherwise be issued upon exercise of a Nonstatutory Stock Option. 10.4 No Guarantee of Employment or Participation. Nothing in the Plan shall interfere with or limit in any way the right of the Company or any Subsidiary to terminate any Participant's employment or service at any time, nor confer upon any Participant any right to continue in the employ of the Company or any Subsidiary or any other affiliate of the Company. No Employee shall have a right to be selected as a Participant, or, having been so selected, to receive any future Options. 10.5 Tax Withholding. The Company shall have the power to withhold, or require a Participant to remit to the Company, an amount sufficient to satisfy Federal, state, and local withholding tax requirements on any Option under the Plan, and the Company may defer issuance of Common Stock until such requirements are satisfied. The Committee may, in its discretion, permit a Participant to elect, subject to such conditions as the Committee shall impose, (i) to have shares of Common Stock otherwise issuable under the Plan withheld by the Company or (ii) to deliver to the Company previously acquired shares of Common Stock having a Fair Market Value sufficient to satisfy such withholding tax obligation associated with the transaction. 12 10.6 Indemnification. Each person who is or shall have been a member of the Committee or of the Board shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Company against and from any loss, cost, liability, or expense that may be imposed upon or reasonably incurred by him in connection with or resulting from any claim, action, suit, or proceeding to which he may be made a party or in which he may be involved by reason of any action taken or failure to act under the Plan (in the absence of bad faith) and against and from any and all amounts paid by him in settlement thereof, with the Company's approval, or paid by him in satisfaction of any judgment in any such action, suit, or proceeding against him; provided that he or she shall give the Company an opportunity, at its own expense, to handle and defend the same before he undertakes to handle and defend it on his own behalf. The foregoing right of indemnification shall not be exclusive and shall be independent of any other rights of indemnification to which such person may be entitled under the Company's Certificate of Incorporation or By-Laws, by contract, as a matter of law, or otherwise. 10.7 No Limitation on Compensation. Nothing in the Plan shall be construed to limit the right of the Company to establish other plans, provided that the Company shall not be permitted to establish any other stock option or stock incentive plans prior to the fifth anniversary of the Initial Public Offering without the advance approval of the New York Superintendent of Insurance. Nothing in this Section 10.7 shall be construed to limit the ability of the Company to use stock in connection with any compensation arrangement, approved by the New York Superintendent of Insurance pursuant to Section 10.1 and Schedule 3(c) of the Plan of Reorganization. 10.8 Requirements of Law.

The Plan shall continue in effect, unless sooner terminated pursuant to Article IX, until no more shares are available for issuance under the Plan. 10.10 Governing Law. The Plan, and all agreements hereunder, shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to principles of conflict of laws. 10.11 No Impact on Benefits. Except as may otherwise be specifically stated under any employee benefit plan, policy or program, Options shall not be treated as 13 compensation for purposes of calculating an Employee's right under any such plan, policy or program. 10.12 No Constraint on Corporate Action. Nothing in this Plan shall be construed (i) to limit, impair or otherwise affect the Company's right or power to make adjustments, reclassifications, reorganizations or changes of its capital or business structure, or to merge or consolidate, or dissolve, liquidate, sell, or transfer all or any part of its business or assets or (ii) except as provided in Article IX, to limit the right or power of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to take any action which such entity deems to be necessary or appropriate. 14
