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.
