Invest in your work and future with an ESPP

An Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) is a company-run program that lets you purchase company stock—sometimes at a discount. And that can make it a great way to potentially save for short- and long-term goals.

Start with the basics

New to ESPPs or just need a refresher? Get a glimpse into how things work and some commonly used terms.

Get more familiar with the key steps that occur so you know what happens next.

Watch to understand how to enroll, when shares are purchased, and what price you will pay.

Have an ESPP, but haven't yet enrolled?

If you're eligible and the enrollment window is open, you'll see "Enroll" next to your ESPP's name when you log in to Fidelity NetBenefits. You will be prompted to open your Stock Plan Account if it isn't already open (it's where your purchased shares are deposited).
