NARFE - South Dakota Federation
Welcome to the South Dakota NARFE Federation Website

If this is your first visit to our web site, a sincere welcome!! If you have heard about NARFE before, we encourage you to browse through our web site and, hopefully, join us in the continuous battle to protect our benefits (COLA's, annuities, TSP benefits, tax benefits and, most important, health benefits). 

The South Dakota Federation consists of over 900 members in 12 chapters as well as over 420 "National" members located throughout the State of South Dakota.  Our Chapters meet at regular intervals and frequently offer entertaining and instructive programs featuring speakers prominent in the political and business life of the community.  Through membership in local chapters, retirees exchange information of common interest, assist one another in times of need and can widen their circle of friends.
