Membership dues for NWSEO may be paid by payroll deduction, check or credit card.
The current dues for payroll deduction is only one percent of your salary to a maximum per pay period amount of $22.52. The rate increases each year in accordance with the OPM's salary rate increases for the rest of the U.S.
Employees who wish to join NWSEO through Payroll Deduction may fill out a Standard Form 1187 and provide the necessary information in boxes 1, 4, and 5, then sign and date the form at the bottom. The completed form may be scanned and emailed to Christy Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to NWSEO at 202-600-2145 or mailed to the NWSEO address below.
Another option for paying dues is by credit card. Your credit card charged $48.80 per month on a subscription basis and you no longer have to worry about renewals. (Please note: Do not increase the quantity when using the store. It does not pay for additional months, it only purchases additional memberships and the increased amount will be charged each month.)
If you prefer, you have the option to pay dues with a check or the credit card for an entire year or every six months. Annual dues is one percent of your base pay up to $585.60 and a half year is the same up to $292.80.
Employees may also pay their annual or semi-annual dues directly to NWSEO by writing a check made out to "NWSEO" and mailing it to NWSEO at the address below. (Please do not send a monthly check. We can only process checks for annual or semi-annual membership.)
