Nonqualified Deferred Compensation (NQDC)
Description of Johnson Amendment

The amendment makes technical changes to the proposed legislation on NQDC. The amendments are consistent with eliminating abusive arrangements and provide bright-line rules on a going forward basis for NQDC. These modifications are needed to ensure that employers can satisfy the new rules on a timely basis; that participants in non-abusive arrangements are not improperly penalized; and that employers may continue to offer appropriate NQDC and equity arrangements that will assist employees in saving for their retirement and satisfy retention goals.
