NARFE has a number of Coalition Partners

Coalition-building is an important advocacy tool used by organizations to advance their mutual goals. NARFE has founded two national coalitions and has also joined alliances where the member organizations share strategy and strengths on issues of concern. NARFE officers and activists can use the links provided below to access our coalition partners to often find local units in their area.

The Fund to Assure an Independent Retirement (FAIR)
Originally convened by NARFE and The Retired Officers Associations to join forces against congressional attacks on federal and military retirement benefits, today's member groups represent more than six million public service employees and retirees. The 33 national federal and postal organizations work to protect the economic and health security of their members.

The Coalition to Assure Retirement Equity (CARE)
Founded by NARFE in 1991, it is comprised of over 49 national, state, and local organizations solely for the purpose of addressing the Social Security Offsets, the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP). Like federal annuitants, many state and local government retirees are also affected by the GPO and WEP.

The Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO)
NARFE is an active member of LCAO, a coalition of 64 national nonprofit organizations concerned with the well-being of America's older population. LCAO works on issues common to all senior citizens, including Medicare, Social Security, long-term care, and prescription drug costs.

The Military Coalition
While no formal alliance currently exists between federal and military organizations, a long-standing tradition of cooperation and coordination continues to benefit both communities. Today, NARFE and the 35 members of the Military Coalition, including the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), promote premium conversion legislation, work on long-term care insurance, support pay parity.

The Coalition for Effective Change (CEC)
Established in 1993, it is a non-partisan alliance of associations representing both active and retired federal managers, executives, and professionals. CEC seeks to provide a forum for these federal employees to assist in re-inventing government and to share their expertise with policymakers.
