Our Goals, Mission & Priorities
Our goals and mission are to protect the earned entitlements, rights and benefits of the federal retirees, employees and survivors. Our priorities are recruiting and retention of our members and, of course, legislation. Our purpose - to unite, work and vote on issues concerning our benefits.
We are proud of our 41 chapters that extend from Northern Virginia (close to the Nation’s Capital) to the beaches of Southern Virginia to the Shenandoah Mountains. The VFN was founded April 9, 1955. Currently, we have almost 8,000 Chapter Members and over 7,000 Virginia National Only members. The VFN is organized by geographic areas.
STATE LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM – VFN has a highly active State Legislation Program. It includes an “A State Legislation Plan” that’s developed every year and presented to the Virginia Delegates in support of State Legislation to strengthen fair and efficient governance in our State. The Plan protects the rights, safety, and assets of Virginia’s seniors. We invite you to look at our Plan and Newsletter on the VFN website at www.vanarfe.org .
