AFSPA Connect Member Portal


The Member Portal is a secure gateway designed for our members. This feature allows Private Messages to be sent to our members to maintain compliance with HIPAA, SOX and other Federal regulations. AFSPA is required to protect its members’ Personal Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI) and all financial information. When our staff’s reply to your e-mail contains sensitive information or PHI, you will receive an e-mail notification from AFSPA, at the e-mail address on file, notifying you to log in to the Member Portal to read the Private Message. To submit a claim (health only) or enrollment/application in a confidential manner, simply click on the appropriate insurance plan section and follow the on screen prompts.

To log in to the Member Portal, you must be enrolled in one of our insurance programs and be the primary member, not a spouse or dependent. You may update your contact information, including preferred communication method with AFSPA (e-mail or USPS mail) at any time.

Legal Services

Because of the nature and demands of the Foreign Service and serving overseas, it is often difficult for our members to address legal matters. As a result, many of our members have legal needs that have gone unmet; others have expended considerable effort to locate and retain advice and representation.

To help our members find appropriate representation and advice, the Protective Association has arranged for a number of Washington, DC metropolitan area law firms to be available to represent our members with most legal matters.

Review the participating law firms descriptions of services to determine which firm is right for you.

Tax Consulting Services

Preparing taxes is the least desirable activity we face before the annual deadline of April 15th! To make it an easier and a less stressful endeavor, AFSPA now offers a tax consulting service to answer your questions no matter where you reside.

Beers, Hamerman, Cohen & Burger, P.C., offers services from a group of five CPA tax accountants with at least 10-years of accounting experience.

They offer:

  • A complimentary 20-minute consultation to AFSPA members and retirees who have tax questions. Just identify yourself as an AFSPA member when you call or email.
  • 10% discount will be given off the standard hourly rates.
  • A dedicated secure email address for members to ask their questions.
  • Prior to services being rendered, a letter of understanding is issued.

New tax laws are an annual occurrence and can be very confusing. Let the CPA professionals alleviate your “tax anxiety” and provide assistance.

To reach Beers, Hamerman, Cohen & Burger, P.C., please email or call John Ermer, Sharon Brune, Martin Bernstein, Nicholas Iwanec or Rosemary McGovern at 203- 787-6527.
