Congratulations on your new position.
Welcome to the USDA!

Decisions around benefits elections and beneficiaries are very personal. It is highly recommended that you do some research into all your options before you begin.

Remember that Benefits elections have very specific eligibility requirements and deadlines. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you meet these deadlines.

You will not receive any reminders if you fail to act within the specified time period. Be sure to follow the on-screen guidance about which documents need witnesses, hard copy "wet" signatures and/or physical mailing to locations other than our Human Resources office in Minneapolis MN.
