Today is 1 July 2020, Jason is planning to purchase a corporate bond

with a coupon rate of j2 = 4.08% p.a. and face value of 1000. This corporate bond matures at par. The maturity date is 1 July 2022. The yield rate is assumed to be j2 = 3.16% p.a. Assume that this corporate bond has a 3.83% chance of default in the first six-month period (i.e., from 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2020) and this corporate bond has a 2.80% chance of default in any six-month period during the term of the bond except the first six-month (i.e., 2.80% chance of default in any six-month from 1 January 2021 to 1 July 2022). Assume also that, if default occurs, Jason will receive no further payments at all.
What's is the expected coupon payment on 1 January 2022?
