C. Secured Claims

2.08. Class 1 includes all delinquent secured claims that mature after the completion of this plan.

(a) Cure of arrears. All arrears on Class 1 claims shall be paid in full by Trustee. The cure will be paid in the equal
monthly installments specified in the table below as the “arrearage dividend.”

(1) The cure shall include interest unless a “0%” rate is specified below. If the provision for interest is left
blank, interest will accrue at the rate of 10%.

(2) The arrearage dividend must be applied by the Class I creditor to the arrears. If this plan provides for
interest on the arrears, the arrearage dividend shall be applied first to such interest, then to the arrears.

(b) Post-petition payments. Trustee shall maintain all payments falling due after the filing of the case to the holder
of each Class 1 claim.

(1) If Debtor makes a partial plan payment that is insufficient to satisfy such post-petition payments,
distributions will be made in the order such claims are listed below.

(2) Trustee will not make a partial distribution on account of a post-petition payment.

(3) If Debtor makes a partial plan payment, or if it is not paid on time, and Trustee is unable to make timely
a post-petition payment, Debtor’s cure of this default shall include any late charge.

(4) The automatic stay is modified to permit the holders of Class 1 claims to send statements, impound, and
escrow notices, and notices concerning interest rate adjustments or the assessment of fees and costs to
Debtor. However, Trustee will not make post-petition payment adjustments or pay post-petition fees, charges,
or assessments until they are demanded in accordance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3002.1.

(i) If the holder of a Class 1 claim gives Debtor and Trustee notice of a payment change in
accordance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3002.1(b), Debtor shall adjust the plan payment accordingly.

(ii) If the holder of a Class 1 claim gives Debtor and Trustee notice of post-petition fees, expenses,
and charges in accordance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3002.1(c), Debtor shall modify this plan if Debtor
wishes to provide for such fees, expenses, and charges.

(5) Post-petition payments made by Trustee and received by the holder of a Class 1 claim shall be applied
as if the claim were current and no arrearage existed on the date the case was filed.

(c) No claim modification. Each Class 1 creditor shall retain its lien. Other than to cure of any arrearage, this plan
does not modify Class 1 claims.

Case 13-25164 Filed 07/03/13 Doc 25

(c) Claim amount. The amount of a Class 2 claim is determined by applicable nonbankruptcy law. However, subject
to the two limitations below, Debtor may reduce the claim to the value of the collateral securing it by filing, serving,
setting for hearing, and prevailing on a motion to determine the value of that collateral. If this plan proposes to reduce
a claim based upon the value of its collateral, the failure to move to value that collateral in conjunction with plan
confirmation may result in the denial of confirmation.

(1) Debtor is prohibited from reducing a claim if the claim holder has a purchase money security interest and
the claim either was incurred within 910 days of the filing of the case and is secured by a motor vehicle
acquired for the personal use of Debtor, or was incurred within 1-year of the filing of the case and is secured
by any other thing of value.

(2) Debtor is prohibited from modifying the rights of a holder of a claim secured only by a security interest in
real property that is Debtor’s principal residence.

(d) Lien retention. Each Class 2 creditor shall retain its existing lien until completion of the plan and, unless not
required by Bankruptcy Court, entry of Debtor’s discharge.
