Founded under the name Federal Superannuates National Association, FSNA now operates as the National Association of Federal Retirees. This new operating name more accurately reflects our members and who we serve. FSNA is a not-for-profit association dedicated to protecting the benefits and promoting the interests of federal retirees.
Contribute today to protect your pensions and benefits
Your Association is protecting your pensions and benefits. But we can’t do it without your help.
Many of you pitched in when you sent letters to your MPs and signed petitions after the Treasury Board announced an increase to your Public Service Health Care Plan premiums. Despite our efforts, the federal government increased the retiree cost-sharing ratio from 25 to 50 per cent.
The National Association of Federal Retirees has directed the firm Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP to take the necessary legal action to protect your rights and interests. A Notice of Application has been filed with the Federal Court of Canada on behalf of the Association and some of its members.
While we continue to oppose the changes to your PSHCP contributions through legal channels, your Association is also mounting an advocacy campaign to strengthen political and public support for the protection of retiree pensions during the 2015 election campaign.
We need your support — now more than ever before.
Many of you have contacted our national office to volunteer your help in the fight for your pensions and benefits, and we thank you. Many of you have offered to make a financial contribution to our legal fund and advocacy campaign. We’re now able to accept those contributions.
If you wish to contribute, please visit our online store or call our national office at 1-855-304-4700. All contributions will be used to assist the Association with legal and advocacy campaign costs.
As a not-for-profit advocacy organization, we are only as strong as our people. The larger our Association grows, the stronger our voice becomes — and the more effectively we can speak out for federal retirees.
Please encourage your friends to join our Association as we continue to fight for your pensions and benefits. It’s as easy as clicking here.
We also encourage you to contact our office — firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-855-304-4700 — and provide us with your email address so that we can keep you informed and equipped with tools you can use to help us in the fight to protect your retirement.
The National Association of Federal Retirees is not a charity, and we are therefore unable to provide a tax receipt for your contribution.
