To help you get started, here are some recruitment tips:

• Be sure to have a member application handy.

• Articulate concrete reasons and advantages to being a NARFE member.

• Focus on the prospect’s needs. Is he or she working or retired, FERS or CSRS, an annuitant spouse? Working Feds may be more interested in our webinars and preretirement planning. CSRS prospects will be more interested in our work on COLAs, taxes and health care insurance costs.

• Share your copy of NARFE Magazine to provide an example of the publication’s value.

• Explain why you joined NARFE if you feel the prospect can relate to it.

• Note that the $40 annual fee is far less than what could be lost in retirement and health care benefits.

• Talk about the perks of membership: NARFE Magazine every month. “One-on-one assistance from our staff of federal benefits experts. Legislative updates, a weekly newsletter and NARFE’s exclusive Legislative Action Center.

Eligibility for disaster relief grants as well as college scholarships for children and/or grandchildren.

Discounts on hotels, car rentals, moving services and more.

• If you are unable to answer a prospect’s specific question, refer the person to NARFE’s membership department, which can be reached by dialing 800-456-8410 and choosing option1.

• Review the NARFE Membership Marketing Manual (FH-19). It’s available online and in print.

• Don’t forget to invite prospects to join!
