Are you sure you aren't screwing yourself over on benefits by waiting until after the new year to start your new job? Always start a new job before the beginning of a month and especially before the beginning of a year.
A friend of mine put his two weeks in and realized the date would be the 30th of the month and would fall on a Tuesday. He put his notice in with final work date of the 1st. His reasoning was that his company pays out for medical on the first on the month, so he basically got a month of his health care covered while he waited for his new company benefits to take over.
