Dividend
A dividend is a share of a company’s profits paid to stockholders or a share of a surplus paid to an individual by a participating insurance company. Dividends are usually given in the form of cash; however, they can also be given in the form of stocks and other property.

A dividend can also be a benefit or reward, normally received as a result of work or effort.
