Preparing for your first day at the Census Bureau. This new employee pre-appointment package contains important personnel forms which should be completed prior to your first day of employment at the Census Bureau.
Several of the forms can be filled out on-line, or they may be printed and completed manually. Be aware that data entered on the electronic forms will not be saved and your input will be deleted when you exit the form. Please review each form for accuracy and print it before continuing to the next form. As you work through the pre-appointment package, use the list of payroll documents provided as your guide. We also recommend that you keep copies of these documents for your records.
If you have been instructed to complete additional forms, such as, a travel agreement or a seasonal employment agreement, you can find them under Special Forms and Information. In this section is also additional information if you now receive or have applied for unemployment benefits.
Please follow the instructions in this package carefully to insure successful completion of these forms. Once you are satisfied that all forms are completed correctly, sign and date the forms (if instructed to do so) and bring them to orientation. Should you have any questions, they will be answered during your orientation session. If you are completing these forms after orientation, please call the Workforce Development Branch on 301-763-2348 for assistance.
To supplement this package, we have included a Benefits and Compensation section, so you may become familiar with the Federal Programs prior to orientations.
