Note 17 — Employee Benefits

401(k) Plan

We have a 401(k) plan for the benefit of substantially all of our employees. We match 75 percent of participant contributions to the 401(k) plan up to 8 percent of each 401(k) plan participant’s annual compensation. Contributions to the 401(k) plan were $2.4 million, $2.4 million and $2.0 million for the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Personal Paid Time Off

Full time employees of the Bank are provided a benefit for personal paid time off for vacation and sick time based on their length of employment. As of December 31, 2019, the accrued expense liability for personal paid time off was $2.5 million.  

Bank-Owned Life Insurance

As of December 31, 2019, cash surrender value of bank-owned life insurance was $52.8 million. The Bank is the main beneficiary under the policy, although certain employees named on the policy are eligible for their heirs to be paid upon their death. In the event of the death of a covered officer, we will receive the specified insurance benefit from the insurance carrier.
