NARFE Chapter 893 Springfield

P.O. Box 523118
West Springfield, VA 22152-3118

Welcome to SPRINGFIELD CHAPTER 893 of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE). Being one of the largest chapters in the United States and located in the DC Metro area, we are privileged to have frequent opportunities to work with our State and Federal legislators, who are major proponents for Federal Employee benefits and rights, which include employee compensation, retiree annuities, health benefits, health care reform, and other benefits, all of which are subject to change as a result of restructuring of Government and weighing the costs of benefits.

Your membership in NARFE gives us a voice. So thank you! The Springfield “mixing bowl” is symbolic of our goal to bring together active and retired Federal employees, blending their talents and experience to work to protect our earned benefits.

We actively support the NARFE national agenda, a combination of legislation, regulatory changes and judicial actions, aimed at ensuring a secure future for our families and ourselves. At the same time, we host informative business meetings, host a Holiday Luncheon and Spring Luncheon, attend plays at the Little Theater of Alexandria, and fund research for a cure for Alzheimers with the Alzheimer’s Association of America.

We invite you to join us for our meeting which is held the second Wednesday of the month (September thru May) at the American Legion Post, 6520 Amherst Avenue, Springfield, VA. Click here for meeting times and directions.
