Plan Documents and Administration
The plan documents and the most recent group short- and long-term disability insurance policy or policies contain the detailed provisions of the plans.

The Employee Benefit Committee of PG&E Corporation is the Plan Administrator of the plans and has the discretionary authority to interpret and construe the terms of the plans, to resolve any conflicts or discrepancies between documents and to establish rules which are necessary or desirable for the administration of the plans. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the insurer has the authority to construe and interpret the terms of the insurance policy, the certificate of insurance or other similar documents which describe the terms and conditions of the disability insurance policy or policies. Nothing in the plan documents or any other communication or document is intended to provide any individual with a substantive right to short- or long-term disability benefits that are not provided for in the short- and long-term disability insurance policy or policies.
