Defined Contribution Retirement Feature

Full-time salaried employees hired after January 1, 2007 who are at least 21 years of age and have one year of service with Comerica will receive an annual company-defined contribution (based on age and years of service) that will be placed into an account established in their 401(k) account. Employees will have the same investment options that are available in the 401(k) plan and will manage the investment risk.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

The Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) is an affordable program that offers an excellent opportunity for you to own Comerica stock. You are eligible to participate in the plan beginning two weeks after your hire date. Shares are purchased through payroll deduction on an after-tax basis. Comerica provides a 15% quarterly match and a 5% retention match.


Paid Time Off (PTO)

Paid time off is accrued based on the length of service with the company. Not everyone needs or wants the same amount of PTO each year. At open enrollment, you may have the opportunity to buy or sell up to five days of PTO time. Of course, you may also choose to keep your current accrued PTO time and not buy or sell any PTO days at all.


Comerica observes ten (10) paid holidays.
