How to select Fidelity

Go to the Amazon Stock portal, and select Fidelity as your broker. After you select Fidelity as your broker, use our step-by-step guide to open your account. This should only take about 5–7 minutes. Once you open your account, we'll help you manage your awards and decide what to do after they vest.

If you skip this step, your election won't be complete, and your outstanding awards will post with Morgan Stanley.

Understanding restricted stock units (RSUs)

An RSU is a right to receive a share of Amazon.com stock after a waiting period (known as a vesting period).

Here's a video to help you understand how RSUs work. The more you know, the better your decisions will be.
