Immediate Vesting

Immediate Vesting

Describing a stock option or qualified retirement plan to which a person is entitled to the benefits of ownership immediately upon receiving the option or plan, even if he/she no longer works at the company providing it. Vesting usually occurs after an employee has worked at the company for a certain number of years, but in immediate vesting, as the name implies, the person has full benefits immediately. Once a benefit is vested, the benefits of the stock option or plan cannot be revoked.
