Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)

An employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) is a retirement plan in which a company contributes its stock (or money to buy its stock) to the plan for the benefit of the company’s employees.  Currently, it is estimated that ESOPs are a vital source of retirement savings for over 13 million employees.

ESOPs are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”) and the Internal Revenue Code.  As a qualified plan, ESOPs must operate for “the exclusive benefit of plan participants.”
