As the only organization solely
dedicated to the general welfare
of all federal workers and
retirees, NARFE delivers valuable
guidance, timely resources and
powerful advocacy. For nearly a
century, NARFE has been a trusted
source of knowledge for the
federal community, Capitol Hill, the
executive branch and the media.

Since NARFE’s founding in 1921,
the association’s mission has been
to defend and advance the earned
pay and benefits of America’s civil
servants. Today, NARFE’s team of
professional lobbyists continues
to work tirelessly on behalf of the
federal community. Supported by
grassroots activists, NARFE is a
leading voice in Washington and
across the country.

Federal benefits and retirement
plans are unique, complex
and subject to change. NARFE
provides both federal workers
and retirees with the clear, reliable
and accessible counsel they
need to make critical decisions
and gain confidence in a secure
future. NARFE webinars, training
conferences, magazine, online
benefit resource library, and
individual counseling services all
offer in-depth expertise on key issues


NARFE Chapter 717 was founded and exists to support and work toward the objectives of the National Association of Active and Retired Federal Employees.
