NARFE is Your Legislative Voice

NARFE’s national legislative program is advanced in Congress by a team of registered lobbyists backed by an informed network of grassroots activists in every state and congressional district, as well as a member-supported Political Action Committee (PAC).

About The Federal Community

America’s federal community is made up of hard working men and women who dedicated their working lives to public service and serving their community in retirement. Every American benefits from the work of federal employees every day. Their service is felt across the country and ensures our nation functions efficiently and effectively.

Size of the Federal Community

America’s federal community totals nearly 5.2 million federal and postal employees and retirees with their survivors. Nearly 2.8 million are current federal employees and postal workers, working in every congressional district and overseas.

Where are Feds Located

Federal employees live and work in every community across the country. In fact, 85 percent of the federal workforce is employed outside the national capital area. These workers deliver your mail, defend our borders and support the military.

Veterans Continuing to Serve

The federal community is also home to a large number of veterans, allowing these fine men and women to continue serving their country. According to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), nearly 31 percent of the federal workers are veterans, making the federal government a leader in veteran hiring.

Federal employees and retirees are the backbone of America’s middle-class and are our nation’s best and brightest. Their service represents some of the best that America has to offer as they continue to work every day for the betterment of our nation.
