Compensation deferral agreement

Another name for a nonqualified deferred compensation plan. It is an agreement between a plan participant and the company that specifies (1) the amount of each component of compensation that the participant has elected to defer to the plan, along with the percentage, and (2) the payment schedule. The company may allow different deferral amounts for each component of compensation and may establish a minimum or maximum deferral amount for each.
