What Is DA Form 3433 Series?
The DA 3433 Forms are released by the U.S. Department of the Army (DA) and are used during the application for non-appropriated fund employment. Non-Appropriated funds (NAF) employment is considered federal employment. The main difference from federal service is the source of money for NAF salaries. NAF employees are paid with money self-generated by daycare facilities, bowling centers, golf courses, and other activities that employ these individuals.
Fillable versions of the DA 3433 Forms are available for download below. Non-Appropriated Fund Employment requires a total of three forms:
- DA Form 3433, Optional Application for Non-appropriated Fund Employment, is a form used instead of or along with a resume when applying for NAF positions.
- DA Form 3433-1, Supplemental Employment Application Form, is submitted with all NAF applications. It is used as an addition to the DA 3433 supplying information about previous job experience, education, and military service.
- DA Form 3433-2, Supplemental-A Employment Application Form for Child-Youth Services Positions, is a document used by individuals applying to NAF positions requiring child care. This form is used to check if the applicant had any law violations that might lead to them being unfit to work with children.
Both DA Form 3433 and DA Form 3433-1 are obligatory and must be completed upon hire or submitted instead of a resume. Each individual position will require its own two copies of both forms.
How to Apply for NAF Positions?
All applicants must submit an application and a resume in person or by mail or fax. Resumes may also be submitted electronically by following the specific instructions in each job listing. Applications and resumes are valid for 90 days after the receipt date. Applicants must use their legal name as listed on their social security card. Individuals selected for a position will need to present their actual social security cards during the hiring process.
Employees with regular NAF appointments are eligible for a variety of benefits and compensations: health and life insurance, awards, retirement plan, 401(k), annual leave, sick leave, military leave, administrative leave, maternity leave, paternity leave, court leave, overtime pay, holiday pay, Sunday premium pay, workers' compensation, and unemployment compensation.
