Vesting schedule

A schedule that sets forth the timeframe and/or performance goals that must be met before NQDC (usually just company contributions or matches) ceases to be subject to the risk of forfeiture and becomes part of the distributions you will receive in the future. There are various types of vesting: graded vesting (a portion per year or month), cliff vesting (all at once), or rolling vesting.
