Greetings and welcome to employment at AAAS Fellowship Programs, Inc. (AFPI).  Prior to our session on August 31st, we want to share some information and provide some details about benefits and the employment on-boarding process.


AdamsKeegan will provide general HR, benefits and payroll services to AFPI employees and in the coming weeks, you will receive more information and requests for information from them.  When you receive a request, please respond promptly to ensure a smooth onboarding process.


Through Adams Keegan you will have access to an internet-based system called Efficenter.  Within Efficenter you can view check stubs, change your address, view W2’s, change your direct deposit, request time off and update your tax withholdings.  

In order for Adams Keegan to process your first paycheck you will need to complete new tax, I-9 and direct deposit forms online.  In the upcoming days you will receive an e-mail from Efficenter containing a link.  Please click on the link in the e-mail and you will be directed to Adams Keegan’s secure Efficenter.  You will be asked to confirm your identity and you’ll need to create a password/PIN in order to complete the tax, I-9 and direct deposit forms online.  Please be prepared to fill out new tax forms including the W-4 and State Withholding Form as well as your direct deposit banking information (routing and account numbers – NO voided check is necessary).


The employment on-boarding process will be completed virtually via Efficenter.  AdamsKeegan will supply the link and log in instructions.   Below is a list of some of the information that will need to be completed during on-boarding. 

  • I-9 Form and I-9 Instructions
