JPMorgan Chase

Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon received restricted stock and options within his bonus package for 2009, but no cash, according to the company.

According to a

Securities and Exchange Commission

filing on Friday, Dimon received 195,704 shares of restricted stock earlier this week. Fifty percent of the restricted stock units will vest in January 2012, and the rest in January 2013, the filing said.

Based on Thursday's closing price of $38.35 for JPMorgan shares, the restricted stock awards are worth roughly $7.5 million.

Dimon also received 563,562 of stock-appreciation rights, which expire in January 2020. The options, granted with an exercise price of $43.20 become exercisable in five equal installments starting in January 2011, the SEC filing said. Shares that result from the exercise of these options must be held for at least five years from the grant, JPMorgan said in the filing.

Dimon will not receive a cash component of his bonus for 2009, a spokesman confirmed to



Dimon received about $19.7 million in total compensation for 2008, media reports have said.

JPMorgan was one of the first recipients of funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, to repurchase preferred shares held by the U.S. Treasury last summer.
