      Note: Enter the salary you expect to pay for a single full-time individual in this group. LivePlan will multiply this amount by the total number of staff in the group.

      Then indicate when the employee(s) will start:

      And, indicate whether you want to include annual raises (and if so, what percent):

    • If you chose Varying amounts over time, enter the salary you expect to pay for a single full-time individual in this group. If you are adding a group of employees, we will multiply that single salary by the total number of staff in the group:

      Note: You do not need to answer the questions about start date or annual raises if you choose this option, because you will be manually entering them instead of having LivePlan calculate them.
  8. Click Next.
  9. Indicate whether these are on-staff or contract employees. Then click Save & Close:
