If you wish to become an Enhanced member of the FDSA, please review payment options listed below:

  • The Public Employees Relations Commission (PERC) recently ruled that a union has the exclusive right to payroll deduction for members of its collective bargaining unit. Because of this, the FDSA is no longer able to receive payroll deduction from any sheriff office employees that are represented by a collective bargaining union. If this ruling does not apply to you print a copy of this form and fax to 850-878-8665. You will also need to take a copy to your Personnel office so they may begin payroll deduction.
  • If you do not qualify for the option above, or your sheriff offices does not offer payroll deduction, you can have the dues withdrawn from your checking account or credit card monthly, please click here to access the membership application and online ACH form or click the APPLY button below and sign up on line.
