Agency benefits

This text allows the agency to describe benefits that they offer above and beyond the standard federal government benefits. If your agency has it’s own benefits page, you can add a link to that page.

Suggested text

Learn more about our benefits: [Insert link to agency specific benefits page]


Learn more about our benefits and careers: [Insert link to agency specific benefits and career page]


  • Add a link to your agency’s benefits or career page, but make sure the label of the link accurately describes the page. For example, if you only have a benefits page, the link label should say “Learn more about our benefits”. If you have a benefits and career page together, use “Learn more about our benefits and careers.”

Do Not

  • Repeat benefits information in any other section—it should only appear in the Benefits section.
  • Repeat benefits information that is already made available via the links above.
  • Keep using broken links or links that send applicants to outdated content.
