What does being a vested employee means?
Being a vested employee means that your rights to pension benefits are paid up and therefore not contingent on the employee's continuing in the service of the employer. Erisa (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) stipulates that employees be at least 25% vested in benefits derived from employer contributions after 5 years. By the time the employee has worked for 15 years their vesting must have risen to 100%.

Also used as "play it close to your chest," this is a poker idiom. It refers to the practice of keeping your cards close to you so that nobody can see what you have. The idiom… means to keep things to yourself, not to let everyone know what you are planning. There are many variations of this phrase. Variations include "play it/keep it close to your vest/chest" It is an idiom that means to keep the subject "it" closely guarded and to not share or disseminate the information easily. Example: "You can let them know that we are calculating a forecast for the next quarter but keep the preliminary earnings close to the vest". Most likely this was derived from the 19th century as a metaphor to card playing essentially telling one not to let others see their cards. The literal reference is to holding your playing cards close enough to your chest so that no one else can see them. The idea is to prevent others in the game from gaining a strategic advantage over you. You do this by not allowing them--or their possible confederates standing behind you--even a glimpse of your cards. Here is a snippet from Sinclair Lewis's Babbitt (1922), where the setting is a men's club: "He was a large man with hair en brosse, and he knew the latest jokes, but he played poker close to the chest." This is more than a factual description. The author is saying something significant about the man's character.

It means that one does not get to completely own the shares until specific requirements (such as length of employment) are met. The shares may also be divided into percentage …over a period of time before you can obtain the full 100% shares. For example, 50% for 1st year and the remaining 50% on second year to get a full 100%. Another example is one can own 100% of the shares after two years of employment. If one quits within the first two years, then he or she can only own 50%, and the other 50% is owned by the employer.
Vesting is an issue in conjunction with employer contributions to an employee stock option plan, or to a retirement plan such as a 401(k), annuity or pension plan. A vested …right is "an absoluted right; when a retirement plan is 100% vested, the employee has an absolute right to the entire amount of money in the account." It is a "basic right that has been granted, or has accrued, and cannot be taken away. Example: one's right to a vested pension." There is two type of vesting, graded and cliff. Graded means you get a certain percentage of your employer contribution each year, until you're fully vested. A five year grated plan would mean that you would have access to 20% of your employer contribution the first year, 40% the second, and so on. Cliff means that you have no acces whatsoever, until your worked your vesting period. A five year cliff vesting period means you have no access to the employer contribution, until your worked that full 5 year period. From: Wikipedia
It means to not reveal too much about your actions (so that your opponent/enemy can't figure out your strategy). The origin goes to cards.

Answer The interests of a beneficiary "vest in interest" when a trust is created. If a condition is placed on the beneficiary's entitlement then the interest beco…mes "contingent" instead of "vested". This may result in a problematic situation where the beneficiary's interests do not vest until after the perpetuity period. Thus, the remoteness of vesting principle is one in which a gift will be void if it might vest beyond the perpetuity period.

\n. \n Definition of Vesting \n. \n. \nWhen referring to employment benefits, vesting is the amount of time to ownership to the employer's contribution to his or her ac…crued benefits.\n. \nIn the case of a pension, an employer makes contributions to an employee's retirement plans over the course of his or her employment.\n. \nGenerally, the employee must complete a certain amount of time before he or she has rights to the employer contributions in the pension plan. Plan benefits are said to "vest" at the end of that time period.\n. \nExample: \n. \nAn employee receives $1,000 a year in employer contributions to his/her pension plan, with 50% vesting after 2 years of employment and 100% vesting after 3 years of employment.\n. \n[To keep it simple, assume 0% returns in the pension plan.]\n. \nIf the employee quits at the beginning of his/her third year of employment, he or she is entitled to $1,000 * 2 years of employer contributions * 50% = $1,000 in the pension plan.\n. \nIf the employee quits at beginning of his/her fourth year of employment, at retirement, he or she is entitled to $1,000 * 3 years of employer contributions * 100% = $3,000 in the pension plan.

The root word vest means to dress.
Vest means to confer full title to real property. "Title" to real property means legal and absolute ownership. When a person dies owning real property their estate must be pro…bated whether they die with a will or without a will. That is because title to real property, if not transferred by a deed from the owner, must be transferred by a court order. The court decree that allows the probate of an estate vests title to the real estate in the heirs. If the estate is never probated the heirs never gain legal ownership of the property and the result is a cloud on the title.
