Why National MOAA Membership?

Although it is not necessary to be a member of National MOAA to be a SENCLAND Chapter member, we strongly encourage it. National MOAA membership ensures that we have a strong voice with Congress on matters of importance to active duty, Reserve and Guard, retired Service men & women and their families.

There are three levels of National MOAA membership:

  1. Basic Membership: This is a free electronic membership that provides the opportunity to experience what MOAA is all about. You'll stay current with MOAA e-newsletters and have opportunities to participate in grassroots activism efforts.

  2. Premium Membership: This level provides full access to everything MOAA has to offer, including unlimited access to the full spectrum of MOAA National's career resources, financial-planning advice, and all MOAA-exclusive publications and news updates. That’s on top of all the benefits included at the BASIC Membership level. Dues are paid annually.

  3. Life Membership: This level of MOAA provides the greatest level of benefits...all of the benefits of Premium membership, plus:

    • Direct Access to Staff Experts via MOAA’s LIFE Member Hotline.
    • Protection for Your Spouse. LIFE membership privileges automatically transfer to your spouse after your death at no cost. This provides quick access to expert advice on survivor benefits and services.
    • Bonus Rewards and Travel Discounts. Earn an additional 7,500 rewards points for use on your first trip when you book through MOAA's vacation center.
    • Discounts for products and services such as car rentals, computers, hotels and insurance
    • One time dues payment which covers you and your surviving spouse for life.

Membership Dues Policy for Local Chapters

National MOAA and Local Chapter Dues

Some have asked "Why do I have to pay Chapter dues if I am a member of the National MOAA Organization and pay annual dues there or am a Life Member of MOAA national?" Although our Chapter (and all other local Chapters) are part of MOAA's National structure and network, all chapters are separate entities, responsible for their own funding.

National MOAA conducts functions on a national scale, for example:

  • Lobbying with the US Congress on benefits and entitlements for military members, retirees and military families on a National scale
  • Offering counseling and assistance to its members worldwide; for example:
    • Career transition assistance
    • Survivor benefit counseling

  • Offering products and services to its members worldwide; for example:
    • Insurance products such as TRICARE Supplements, Term Life insurance, and Long Term Care insurance
    • Product and services discounts such as travel, Dell and Apple computers, sports and outdoor equipment, apparel, jewelry, etc.
    • Financial calculators, tax guide, Estate planning and other resources .
    • More information on Member Benefits and Resources is available at the National MOAA website.

Local Chapters offer local opportunities, for example:

  • Luncheons and social gatherings
  • Local JROTC Scholarships
  • Support of local military events and programs.
  • Liaison with local elected officials on matters of military interest
  • A Chapter Website and Newsletter

You do not have to be a member of National MOAA to be a member of our Chapter, but we strongly encourage National MOAA membership because of the strong voice it gives us in Congress.
