2019 Holiday Schedule
Please be advised that the Online Membership System (OMS) will be shutting down at 4:00pm CST on Tuesday, December 31, 2019. Any transactions that are submitted through OMS on December 31, up to the closing time, will be posted to Memstats and Post Query later that evening and available for viewing the morning of January 2, 2019.
Mail received at the National HQ prior to December 31, 2019 will be processed and counted in the December total. Mail received after that date, regardless of the postmark date, will not be counted in the December total. We suggest you have your posts mail in their membership as early as possible or take advantage of the Online Membership System tools. Please note that email sent to individual member service center advisors are not guaranteed to be processed; please utilize the email address.
The OMS system will be back on line for the submittal of transactions by 12:00 (noon) CST, Thursday, January 2, 2020; however, membership transactions that are processed will not be posted to Memstats until January 6, 2020.
The ability to CALL the Member Service Department is now closed for the holiday but, all members can resume calling starting on January 2 to renew or convert to Life Membership. 1-833-VFW-VETS or 1-833-839-8387 Monday - Friday 8:15am until 5pm.
That means we are in serous crunch time with very limited days left in 2019 to pay annual dues with a December 31, 2019 expiration date.
Renewing online by Post QM or individually is likely the only option left for members to get dues processed before 12/31 if not already in the mail.
Please click this link to safely renew online with credit or debit card and renew now!
Thank you in advance for renewing and being a member of the greatest combat veteran organization.
