YOUR SUPPORT HELPS
Join NHPA's efforts to make NASA better and greater!
Step 1 - Check if you eligible
Almost all non-managerial employees based at NASA HQ can join the NHPA, unless the type of work that you perform excludes you according to FLRA statutes 5 USC 7112(b) and (c).
If you refer to the most recent version of your SF-50 form, in block 37, if you see a bargaining unit code "1292" (Scientists/Engineers) or "5929" (Clerical/Administrative/Technical) you are eligible to join.
Step 2 - Fill out a Payroll Deduction SF-1187 Form
This PDF that can be filled out on your computer and digitally signed. If you digitally sign it (on your work computer), send it from your work email to a NHPA official's work email so the digital signature forwards. You can also fill it out, print, sign it in pen, scan and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Steps 3 - Fill out our NHPA Membership Application
We have an online form that is easy and quick to complete, but if you prefer the PDF form, fill it out on both the front and back, sign and scan and email it back to email@example.com
