Procedure to Report Violations of Law or Accounting
or Audit Irregularities (Whistleblower Procedures)

Trustmark is committed to complying with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, and not engaging in or encouraging fraudulent activity. Trustmark’s associates, officers and directors should promptly report any violations or suspected violations of state or federal laws, rules and regulations applicable to Trustmark. In addition, Trustmark strongly encourages its associates, officers, directors and others to promptly report complaints regarding accounting, internal accounting controls or auditing matters, and concerns regarding questionable audit or accounting matters. Any such violations of law or complaints or concerns regarding accounting or auditing matters may be reported by contacting our independent online reporting center at www.reportlineweb.com/trustmark or calling Trustmark’s Hotline at 1-866-979-3769.

Any reported violations or complaints will be reviewed pursuant to procedures overseen by the Trustmark Audit and Finance Committee. We encourage you to provide as much detail as possible about the violation of law or the complaint or concern, since the ability to investigate the report will depend on the quality and specificity of the information. The Audit and Finance Committee may delegate authority and responsibilities to investigate and seek the resolution of any reported violations or complaints or concerns to the General Counsel, internal auditing department, or such other persons as the committee determines to be appropriate.

Complaints will be treated anonymously and confidentiality will be preserved to the fullest extent possible.

Trustmark will not retaliate in any way against an associate who, in good faith, reports any matter covered by this procedure or participates in an investigation in connection with this procedure.

This procedure is publicly distributed as required and is available on Trustmark’s corporate website. Trustmark associates will receive this procedure via internal correspondence and it will likewise be posted on the internal website.

Complaints and related documentation will be retained in a confidential file maintained in the office of the General Counsel for a period of five years from the date the complaint is made or such other period of time determined by the General Counsel to be consistent with applicable law.
