With the NAF Retirement Plan, you contribute 2% of your gross salary each pay period. Your employer contributes another 7.6% to the Army NAF Retirement Trust, which pays your retirement benefits when you retire.
Participation begins on your hire date. If you were an eligible NAF employee before 1 January 2001, your participation begins on the date you signed your Enrollment Form, DA Form 3473.
After contributing for five years participation, you’re guaranteed a monthly benefit at retirement for life. Retirees will have made back their contributions in the first three years of retirement – and continue to receive benefits. In the event of death, a spouse can receive a monthly lifetime benefit if that option is selected at retirement.
You may purchase up to 5 years of military service (provided the military service is not already providing you a retirement benefit, or you have not used the military service in another company's retirement plan).
For additional information, visit your servicing Human Resources Office or call the NAF Employee Benefits Office.

2020 Valuation of the Retirement Fund
The Annual Valuation of the Retirement Fund for fiscal year 2020 was completed and briefed to G9 Leadership and Trustees on 9 Feb 21. We are currently funded at 104%. Please note that the average funding level for similar public sector retirement funds is 75.1% (Source: National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems dtd 19 Jan 21). In the event our funding level were to fall below 90%, leadership has the ability to raise the employee contribution rate by .25% followed by a similar increase to the employer contribution rate.
