Employer test-test
Can I transfer the funds to my bank?
Yes. After receiving a signed agreement between employee and employer, Keep will complete any regulatory review required, ensure that your employer is current on its obligations with Keep, and fund your loan within 1-2 days thereafter. We will notify you when we have initiated funding. Keep Vesting Cash Plan funds can be transferred to your bank account once this process is completed.
What happens if I leave the company?
If you have withdrawn more cash than has vested at the date of your departure from your company, you are legally required to pay back the total remaining balance on your vesting schedule. There is a 60 to 120-day repayment period at 0% interest before the loan converts into a 1 or 3 year interested-bearing loan, divided into monthly payments.
Why is this called a 0% interest loan?
Keep Cash Plans are structured as loans in order to facilitate the vesting process, and in the event of early employee exits, the collections process. However, these loans are offered at 0% interest during your tenure at your company and are fully prepaid by your employer.
Can I spend money that hasn’t vested?
Yes. Once your Keep Vesting Cash Plan has been signed by both parties, you can access 100% of your available funds.
What should I do with the money?
The cash is yours to allocate however you see fit. Alleviate any financial stressors, make a down payment, invest, or more. The possibilities are limitless.
Does the loan have an interest rate?
During your tenure at the company that offered you the Keep Vesting Cash Plan, your loan will have a 0% interest rate. If you leave the company before your plan fully vests and you have withdrawn more cash than has already vested, you are legally required to pay back the total remaining balance on your vesting schedule. There is a 60 to 120-day repayment period at 0% interest before the loan converts to a 1 or 3 year interest-bearing loan, divided into monthly payments.
How do taxes work?
You will not be taxed on the loan you receive from Keep. However, when your employer prepays this loan (on each of your vesting dates), you will be taxed for the amount that has vested.
