                              WHY SHOULD I JOIN NARFE

                                    Celebrating 100 years (1921 - 2021) 

NARFE was formed less than a year after passage of the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS) of 1920, when 14 federal employees met in downtown Washington, DC.

At the time of that inaugural meeting, civil service annuities for the 16,500 federal annuitant were capped at $60 per month, with a meximum annual payout of $720.  Retirement was mandaroty for employees with 15 years of service who had reached retirement age.

The new group, then names Associal of Retired Federal Employees, would work solely for "the betterment of the status of retired federal employees."
