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:
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.
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.
