the not so Successful Sharing Plan

Our office has received some inquiries regarding the SSP payout that is normally deposited into employee HRA accounts.  However, because the closing stock price on September 30, 2013, of $33.82, was lower than the opening stock price, of $37.75 on October 1, 2012, (down 10.41%) there will be no payout this year. The "Stock Appreciation Award Value" is only paid out when the stock price increases.   We do not get the dividend payout since we traded that in bargaining to cover the increases in the Cash Balance Account.
