Hi all,
I did a quick search and didn't find the answer to my question, sorry if you've disussed before...

I am considering a new job and I would have to wait the standard one year before becoming eligible to participate in the 401. My question is: Is it a law that companies are required to make employees's wait a year before they start to contribute, or can I negotiate this with the potential employer? I hate to miss out on a year and would like to be able to contribute ASAP. I already max out my Roth as well as to my personal equity fund. Any suggestions on how to broach this?
