Many important benefits begin accruing with your start date. By saving your start date, it’s possible that your health, travel, and 401(k) benefits could be activated on your first day of work.  Plus, your year one performance review and corresponding pay increase would be tied to your saved start date, not the day that you report to training.  That means that you could receive a raise as soon as six months after you start work. 

Benefits tied to your start date:

  • Annual performance evaluations and associated wage increases
  • 401(k) benefits
  • Vacation
  • Paid sick leave
  • Flight benefits
  • Medical and dental insurance
