    Default till+present perfect progressive or future perfect progressive

    1)"We won't get any perks yet. We have to wait till we have been working here for two years."

    OR

    2)"We won't get any perks yet. We have to wait till we will have been working here for two years."

    Is 2) correct? Is 1) natural?
