We're making big changes to the Schwab Equity Award Center. Your company offers equity awards as part of your compensation. You can manage your awards with your Charles Schwab account. The changes we've made are all designed to make managing your equity awards easier and better.

There’s no charge to open a Charles Schwab account, and you don’t have to pay any account service fees. And now, with one-stop access, you can manage your equity awards more efficiently. When you sign on, you can view both your Schwab equity awards account and your brokerage account, if you have one, in one place. The redesigned dashboard is more intuitive, so navigation is easier than ever. The Equity Summary section gives you an overview of your awards at a glance. The new Awards view clearly and simply displays details on all your awards. See all your vesting information quickly and easily with our new Vesting Date view. The Events & Activities view helps you stay on top of current and upcoming events.

Have equity awards from multiple companies? See market price and change information side by side, and quickly filter out tickers without additional navigation.

Want to take action? Use quick links for convenient access.

And this is just the beginning. More enhancements are planned, including grant agreement acceptance, ESPP enrollment, tax election capabilities, calendar view with action items, and calculators to run what-if scenarios.
