Frequently asked questions about ESOPs

An ESOP, or employee stock ownership plan, is a tax-qualified deferred compensation employee benefit which makes the employees of that company beneficial owners of stock in that company. ESOPs are unique in that only ESOPs are required under US tax and labor laws to invest primarily in the securities of the sponsoring employer and the only employee retirement savings plan that law permits that may use borrowed funds to acquire its asset, the employer securities.

Rich Perteet, PE, founded Perteet Engineering, Inc. in 1988. Our now-spacious offices began as one desk in the back room of a friend’s downtown Everett office.
