Retiree and beneficiary associations

FAFICS is the Federation of Associations of Former International Civil Servants. It was founded in 1975.

 • It brings together Associations of retired International Civil Servants from the United Nations and the Specialized Agencies of the UN. There are currently 63 Member Associations of FAFICS, located in all regions of the world, with a total membership of some twenty thousand retirees.

 • FAFICS provides a framework for promoting and defending the interests of former civil servants, most notably in pension and health insurance issues. To this end, it keeps abreast of developments at the UN General Assembly and other Governing Bodies of UN System Organizations.

Retirees and their beneficiaries should be aware of the valuable information and assistance that can be obtained from the Federation of Associations of Former International Civil Servants (FAFICS) and its member associations. These associations, through the experiences of their respective members, serve as knowledgeable sources of information and advice, not only on pension-related matters but also on the laws and other aspects of life in countries around the world. They continue to act as “partners” to the Pension Fund secretariat and to the member organizations, through their support and assistance.   More specifically, FAFICS and its member associations provide invaluable assistance to retirees and beneficiaries in resolving problems, which may be encountered with the Fund’s Certificate of Entitlement process. FAFICS representatives participate actively and effectively in the sessions of the Pension Board and its Standing Committee.
