Attentiom Retirees

Due to rising costs with the State and National FOP's that directly affect us, we have no choice but to raise the active retiree's dues to $60.00 per year or, put another way, $5.00 per month. This is still in effect as of January, 2017. Thank you in advance for understanding and help in this matter.



Welcome to the Retiree's Page of the Jersey City FOP website. My name is Frank Ferrara and it is my job to handle the members who were active in the FOP while they were in uniform and want to stay active members after retiring.

This is where I come in. It is my job to make sure the retired active pay their yearly dues, get their membership information and dues cards. Every December a reminder letter will be sent out reminding everyone to send in their dues money. When the dues money is received the new membership card will be sent out along the FOP cards. The yearly dues is $60.00.
Included in this reminder letter will be a reminder to pay the life insurance policy offered by Lodge 4. The insurance is optional and is $60.00 per year. If you do desire to keep the insurance, a separate check should be included with your dues payment. Both checks should be made out to JCFOP Lodge 4.
It has been decided that if a member is still unpaid as of April 1, 2018, that member will be taken off the member rolls. If you have lost or misplaced your enrollment form you can download one in Adobe PDF format. Use the links below.

As a reminder - you must be active and in good standing to obtain the insurance policy. You must also be active and in good standing to keep any FOP plates that you have.

One of the main problems of losing contact with retired members is that they move and do not contact the FOP of this change. To help alleviate this problem I have placed a change of address form on the web site. All the individual has to do now is fill in the required information and I will take care of the rest.

If you need to contact me you can do so in two ways:

By mail to my PO Box address:

F.O.P., PO Box #239, Ramsey, NJ 07446

By emailing me

Enjoy the rest of your retired years.
