Welcome to the Department of Florida Membership

If you are interested in becoming a member of Florida AMVETS, some of our eligibility requirements are listed below. Additional requirements for membership within AMVETS can be found on the National AMVETS website.

Eligibility: To be eligible for membership in AMVETS, you must have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves, any time 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.

Dues: Annual dues are $35 and life member dues are $250. These dues fund, in part, the programs, services and representation AMVETS provides.
