Many state employees pledge annually to their agency's SEFA campaign. Their contribution is collected by means of payroll deduction taken from their bi-weekly paychecks. That deduction is not carried over to the pension checks, which means that SEFA contributions stop when employees retire from active State service.
If you made a pledge during the current SEFA campaign, you can continue your support during retirement. Your local SEFA campaign administrators can offer you a choice of convenient payment schedules. By filling out this form you will authorize your local SEFA campaign to write to you about how you can fulfill the balance of your SEFA pledge and continue to give the charities of your choice.
I authorize my community's State Employees Federated Appeal to contact me about fulfilling the balance of my SEFA pledge and or continuing to contribute through a choice of payment schedules.
***Update - July 2018 - SEFA is currently working with OSC, New York State and Local Retirement System to offer retirees the ability to donate through your retirement check. If you would like to participate in this, please also complete this form. SEFA will reach out to you as soon as we have more definitive information.
