NAF employment is considered federal employment. It is, however, different from federal civil service employment because the monies used to pay the salaries of NAF employees come from a different source. Civil service positions are paid for by money appropriated by Congress. NAF money, on the other hand, is self-generated by Air Force clubs, bowling centers, golf courses, and other activities that use NAF employees.
We have two types of NAF positions: "flexible" and "regular." Flexible employees have work schedules that depend on the needs of the activity. These employees may work a minimum of zero hours to a maximum of 40 hours per week, and do not receive benefits. Regular employees work between 20 and 40 hours a week depending on position requirements, and are entitled to receive benefits.
Flexible: Employees have work schedules that depend on the needs of the activity. These employees may work a minimum of zero hours to a maximum of 40 hours per week, and do not receive benefits.
Regular Part-Time: Employees work between 20 to 34 hours a week depending on position requirements and are entitled to receive benefits.

What? Military Spouse Preference is a benefit given to a qualified military spouse seeking employment within the Department of Defense, which includes Non appropriated Funds (NAF), Civil Service (GS/WG) and AAFES positions. MSP gives the spouse a higher priority for government positions.
- Relocation via a PCS move to sponsor’s new permanent duty station
- Married the military member PRIOR to his/her reporting date to new area
- Meets basic qualifications and is among the best qualified
- Meets all pre-employment criteria and is immediately appointable under applicable recruitment procedures
- Posses a copy of PCS orders identifying the sponsor, reporting date to new location and YOUR name is on the orders
Do I have to use my MSP to apply?
No, but if you are hired for, or are converted to a regular part-time/regular full-time position, your eligibility for this PCS move has not been used. A regular part-time/regular full-time position position is defined as positions which appointments are made without time limitation, and are required to have a fixed work schedule, i.e., part time or full time. NAF Flexible category positions are considered non-continuing and MSP eligibility remains intact if appointment for a flexible position only.
How is MSP Lost?
- Accepting or refusing a regular part-time/regular full-time in the Federal Service, whether or not preference was applied
- Refusal to participate in established recruitment procedures
- Loss of military spouse status due to divorce, death of sponsor, sponsor’s retirement, or separation from active duty
Other Important Information:
- MSP only applies to positions within the commuting area of the military sponsor’s permanent duty station
- MSP eligibility begins 30 days before the military sponsor’s reporting date at the new duty location
-Military spouses seeking preference with less than six months remaining in the area will not be eligible to use military spouse preference
