  • You can enroll and make adjustments to your 1165(e) plan contribution biweekly throughout the year.
  • The plan will automatically make a match of 100% of the first 5% of cash compensation (base pay + annual incentive/commissions) which you defer into the plan, at each payroll period.
  • To take advantage of the full company match, contribute at least 5% of your cash compensation (base pay + annual incentive/commissions) to the plan.

You must be employed by Crown Castle on December 31 of the plan year to be eligible for the PURPLE Stock Award.
