Relief Fund

General President Harold Schaitberger is on the ground in Louisiana, visiting the flood-ravaged region and meeting with affected members in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. 

In St. George, Schaitberger -- along with 14th District Vice President Danny Todd and New Orleans Local 632 President Nick Felton -- distributed the first round of debit cards to provide financial relief to Local 4524 members and their families who lost their homes in the worst flooding to hit the state since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

14th District Vice President Todd and leadership from the Professional Fire Fighters Association of Louisiana, Baton Rouge Local 557 and throughout the state continue to assess member needs and provide assistance through a command operations center established to provide financial assistance, clothing, water and other basic supplies to the hundreds of members whose homes were damaged as they worked throughout the storm serving their communities.  

The IAFF urges you to support your brothers and sisters in Louisiana by making a donation to the IAFF Disaster Relief Fund or send checks to:

Wilson Humphries is a firefighter with our department , Camp Parks Fire, in Dublin California.Wilson is also the Treasurer for our Union, Camp Parks Professional Firefighters Local F-305. Wilson is married with 3 kids, the oldest of which is Chylee. Chylee has been battling Leukemia for the last four years and recently relapsed for the second time/her third diagnosis. They live in Sonora California and their daughter is admitted to Children's Hospital Oakland. Its about a 2.5 to 3 hour drive from home to the Children's hospital. Wilson and his wife, Heidi ,trade weeks at that hospital and at home. This has not only caused a lot of stress in their lives and Chylee's but also in the lives of their young sons Ethan and Everett who only get to see mom or dad , not both together, for weeks at a time.The goal is to offer support to the family in the way of needed improvements to their home so that Chylee can live an environment more suited to her depleted immune system. Any assistance offered will be greatly appreciated. 
Below you will find the link to Chylees donation page.
Let's get the word out and get some assistance for our brother and his family.Please let me know if there are any questions.

TSP Update


The below is from the TSP website.  If members are retiring they need to make sure the employing agency (Army/ Navy/ AF etc.) notifies TSP of the employees eligibility for TSP withdraw tax exemption status.  Your HR Retirement or Benefit Representative should be able to contact TSP and inform them of the employees eligibility.


Update: Information for Federal Public Safety Employees — (November 23, 2015) The Defending Public Safety Employees' Retirement Act (P.L. 114-26) amended the Internal Revenue Code to allow specified federal law enforcement officers, customs and border protection officers, federal firefighters, and air traffic controllers who separate from service in or after the year they turn age 50 to make a withdrawal from the TSP without incurring a 10% early withdrawal penalty. The law applies to TSP withdrawals paid after December 31, 2015.

We will rely on employing agencies and services to inform us if a separating (or already separated) employee was a public safety employee as defined by the law. Employees with this designation who were at least 50 during the year of separation and who are paid withdrawals after December 31, 2015, will be issued a Form 1099-R—in January of the year following the withdrawals—indicating they are exempt from the IRS 10% early withdrawal penalty. Other employees will continue to be exempt only if they separate in the year they turn 55 or older or have reached the age of 59½.
