The National Association of Federal Retirees is a not-for-profit association dedicated to protecting the rights and enhancing the benefits of federal retirees.

The main role of the Branch is to keep members informed, provide assistance to members, and to ensure there is a link between the individual members and the National Association.

This web site is designed to keep our members up to date with Branch activities and to provide easy access to other sites such as the National Association, Government web sites of general interest to retirees, and other information that may be useful to seniors.
