DUES WITHHOLDING OPTIONS FOR CURRENT NARFE MEMBERS
• Current chapter members who switch to Dues Withholding program will receive a bonus of $20 and we'll reward their local chapter with a check for $5. Use NARFE Form DW-2.
• Current national members who switch to Dues Withholding program will receive a bonus of $20. Use NARFE Form DW-2.
• Current Dues Withholding Members. If you are already enrolled in our Dues Withholding program, and you would like to add your spouse as a new DW member, you'll receive the $20 reward. Use NARFE Form DW-3.
MEMBERSHIP AND DUES WITHHOLDING OPTIONS FOR NEW MEMBERS
• New members. If you are NOT a member of NARFE but are a retired and receiving a monthly annuity from OPM, you and your spouse can join NARFE as Dues Withholding members. If you both join NARFE, you'll each receive the $20 reward. Use NARFE Form DW-3.
• NOTE: New members will NOT initially receive the 15% discount. All new members will automatically be charged the amount of $40.00 for the first year. However, our $20 reward will offset the first-year dues by 50%, and then future yearly dues will be discounted by 15%.
