Member Dues

SEA membership dues distinguish between active (currently employed in the federal government) and retired executives (those who have left government service). Active dues are $299 annually or $12.50 per pay period when paid via payroll withholding (available in almost all Executive Branch agencies). For a member paid at the Executive Schedule III pay cap ($165,300), their annual dues of $299 represents approximately two-tenths of one percent of their salary. At the average Executive Schedule salary, 3.5 hours of work pay for a year of SEA membership.  For those paying $12.50 per pay period via payroll withholding, membership is only 89 cents per day. Retiree dues are $103 annually. Lifetime memberships are available for $1,795 for active members and $945 for retired members.

The following table compares SEA membership dues to the dues of comparable associations (figures accurate as of March 2014). Associations are listed in order from those with the highest dues to those with the lowest.
