Eligibility & Dues:
To be eligible for membership in AMVETS, you must have served in
the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves,
anytime after Sept. 15, 1940. Additionally, unless still serving,
your discharge must have been under honorable conditions. If you
served as an American citizen in the armed forces of an allied
nation, under honorable conditions, between Sept. 15, 1940 and May
8, 1975, you are also eligible, as are wartime members of the
Merchant Marine. Proof of eligibility can take the form of a DD-214,
an honorable discharge certificate or other appropriate document.
As a rule of thumb, annual dues are $30, but this amount may vary
from state to state or post to post. Life member dues are a minimum
of $250 as of 1/1/2012. These dues fund, in part, the programs,
services and representation AMVETS provides.
