Membership Application

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of AFSPA. Please complete the form below.

Please fill in all mandatory fields marked with an asterisk (*).

Are you Eligible? 
AFSPA membership is limited to American Foreign Service personnel and direct hire employees (i.e. eligible for FEHB insurance) including Executive Branch civilian employees assigned overseas or to U.S. possessions and territories; and the direct hire domestic employees assigned to support those activities. Executive Branch includes all Federal civilian employees except those working for the Legislative (Congress) and Judicial (Courts) Branches of the Federal government.

I understand that my membership is for life, even if my Government affiliation ceases, and even if I am not covered under any of the Association's insurance plans. As a member, I pay no dues or membership fees (I pay only for the services I choose). Membership entitles me to apply for the insurance AFSPA offers and to use other services provided by the Association. I understand that in order to enroll in the Foreign Service Benefit Plan (AFSPA's health plan), I must contact my employing office for enrollment procedures.
*Direct hire employees and Executive Branch civilian employees must enroll in the Health Plan when actively employed in order to retain or choose the Plan in retirement. Only annuitants who are eligible under the Foreign Service Retirement System may enroll under this Plan as annuitants.
