Autopay

Thank you for your interest in signing up for AutoPay.

The AutoPay registration period for school year 2023-2024 has now closed. If you have questions about your AutoPay enrollment or dues payment, please ask your FRS for assistance.

AutoPay is a way for FEA members to pay Association dues with EFT or Credit Card payments, rather than payroll deduction through DoDEA, or via personal check or cash payments.

 

This page will provide you all the information you need to switch to EFT or Credit Card payment of your Association dues. If you are unable to find the answers you are looking for, please send your question to FEA staffer Gary Hritz.

  • After completing your enrollment via the link above, send a message to FEA staffer Gary Hritz, informing him you have enrolled in AutoPay. Be sure to include your full name and your school in your message. Please send your message to Gary even if you receive an automatic confirmation e-mail message from the AutoPay system immediately after you enroll.
  • If you paid Association dues via payroll deduction last school year, you will have to take action to prevent those payroll deductions from continuing this year. Enrolling in AutoPay DOES NOT shut off your existing payroll deductions! To turn off your payroll deductions download government form SF 1188 and submit the completed form to the location listed on page three of the “Transitioning to AutoPay” document referenced in step 1, above, for your location (Overseas or Stateside). If you have questions about this step, send them to Gary Hritz.

 

Remember, there is only a limited time at the start of the school year to end your payroll deductions and switch to AutoPay. Don’t delay!

 

Answers to Some Common Questions About AutoPay

 

Q: Do I have to switch to AutoPay?

No. No member is required to use AutoPay. Members may remain on payroll deduction if they wish. AutoPay was made available because many members do not want DoDEA management or other government agencies to have any involvement in their Association membership through payroll deduction of dues. Risk of government agencies committing errors related to payroll deduction is another reason to consider switching to AutoPay.

 

Q: What are the payment options under AutoPay?

Participants who enroll in AutoPay may select either Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payments tied to their bank account, or Credit Card payment.

 

Q: Can I use my credit card for installment payments?

Credit cards can only be used to pay annual dues as a one-time lump sum payment. Those wishing to pay in installments can only do so via EFT transactions. To pay in installments, be sure to select the “Bank Account” option showing multiple payments instead of one annual payment.

 

Q: Can I enroll as a new FEA member using AutoPay?

If you are seeking to join the Federal Education Association for the first time, thank you! The AutoPay system is unable to process new memberships. Please consult your FRS/Building Representative for information on how to join. If you are unsure who that person is, please send a message to FEA membership processor Nereyda Jones-Luciano at njones@nea.org, asking her to send you contact information for your local Association rep. Be sure to include your name and the name of your school and complex in your message, to help us find your rep.

 

Q: Do I have to sign up for AutoPay every year?

No. Like the payroll deduction system through the government, your AutoPay payments will be set up as recurring payments. You will be emailed a notice before a new school year’s payments begin, informing you of any changes to dues amounts and providing information on how to make changes to or end your AutoPay deductions.

 

Additional questions and answers can be found on page 4 of the “Transitioning to AutoPay” document referenced in the first bullet point under How To Sign Up for E-Dues (above).

Thank you again for your interest in signing up for AutoPay.
