New Headquarters Employees

Welcome to the U.S. Census Bureau!

We are excited to have you join our team! Prior to arriving on your first day, we recommend that you:

  • Download the New Employee Handbook: Please download and review our New Employee Handbook which provides important information about the mission, safety and security, amenities, administrative procedures, and training at the Census Bureau.
  • Review the Employee Benefits section: In particular, we recommend that you review the Employee Benefits section of the Handbook to become familiar with the Federal Programs prior to orientation.
  • Complete the New Hire Forms Below: Complete the following new employee pre-appointment personnel forms prior to your first day of employment at the Census Bureau to prevent any delays in receiving your pay or benefits. You can find them on this page under New Hire Forms.
  • Keep Your own Copies: We recommend you keep copies of these documents for your records. Several 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.
