NARFE responses to the Presidential Questionnaire sent to both candidates. 


We are striving to keep up to date with the latest information for your benefits. As you know, the overwhelming issue facing us and the Congress is the Coronavirus. Most, if not all of our Representatives time is being utilized to deal with this crisis facing our nation. If issues do arise that affect our benefits or pay, NARFE will strive to provide our members with all the information you need to stay tuned into these issues.

In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.

2021 tax brackets now available

As we slowly wave goodbye to summer, let’s hope that the fall season brings us health and safety, not only for us here in NY, but throughout the country.

In your September NARFE magazine (p.48), you may have read that our association is again offering a $10 incentive to each member who enlists a new recruit. Well, we here in your NY Federation want to sweeten the pot even more. For each new member that you have complete an application:

      -The recruiter will receive an additional $10

       -The new member will also receive $10 or $20 if they immediately enroll in Dues                 Withholding

        -The Chapter (at the end of the campaign) who recruits the most new members will receive $100

This campaign will run from Sept. 1—Dec. 31, 2020. Applications must be sent to:

Arnie Zdrojewski

605 Newland Ave

Jamestown, NY 14701-6727

Or by email to: azdrojewski@stny.rr.com

This will ensure the application is recorded here in NY before being forwarded to National for processing. Please provide your NARFE member number (shown on the cover of your magazine) is listed on the application.

Thanks for your support and continued safety,

Mark Bernstein

NY Federation President
