What is an ESOP?

An ESOP is an Employee Benefit Plan that makes the employees of a company owners of the stock of the company.
In an ESOP, only the employees can own stock. No One Else. 

How do ESOP's work?

The Plan is filed for approval with the Department of Labor (DOL) and the IRS.
Once the Plan is approved, the ESOP has 12 months to act.
The ESOP then creates a Trust.
The Trust buys all the stock of the company.
The Trust then makes annual contributions of stock to individual employee accounts through a compensation allocation formula.
