Our success is enabled by our world-class employees, who are the reason nearly every chip is built with Lam technology. Our dynamic employee team is essential to the company’s continued growth, so we offer a range of benefits to support you today and help you build the future you envision for yourself and your family.

You are eligible for all Lam benefits on your date of hire, but you have a limited time to select several important benefits, so make time right away to learn about your options.

What you need to do within 30 days

Within the first 30 days after your start date, enroll in the following benefits, based on your needs and the needs of your family:  

Enrollment timing

Be sure to enroll in these benefits within 30 days of your start date at Lam. After you enroll, you cannot make changes to your benefits until the next annual enrollment period unless you have a qualifying life event (such as getting married or divorced, having or adopting a child, losing a dependent, or losing other coverage). You have 30 days from the qualifying event to make changes (60 days after the birth of a child).


  • It can take up to 5 business days for your employee record to be active with PlanSource, where you’ll enroll in benefits. You’ll receive an email from PlanSource at your Lam email address when you can begin enrollment.
  • It may take another 10 business days after enrollment for each vendor to set up your benefits and provide ID cards as needed. The effective date of your coverage will be your Lam hire date.
  • Your employee record will be active with Fidelity, the Lam 401(k) administrator, after your first pay period at Lam. Fidelity will send you an email at your Lam email address when you can access your account to select your contributions and investments or opt out of automatic enrollment.
