The USSSA focuses on keeping both current and former employees connected to each other and to important opportunities.


Not only do we maintain a strong relationship with Secret Service headquarters, we also serve as a connection hub for current and former Secret Service personnel around the world.


Service to others is in our DNA. We are passionate about providing ongoing support to our members, whether they are current USSS employees, in the midst of their second career, or enjoying retirement.


Members and their families are eligible for educational scholarships through the USSSA Foundation. We also provide financial support to members, their families, survivors, and the greater law enforcement community in times of crisis.


We believe that once you join the Secret Service, you are part of a proud, life-long family. The U.S. Secret Service Association (USSSA) is a nonprofit organization focused on providing continuing assistance and connection for the dedicated men and women bound together by their collective support of the U.S. Secret Service mission.

USSSA Scholarships Now Closed

The scholarship application period for the USSSA Foundation is now closed for the 2023-2024 school year and the committee is reviewing all submitted applications.

Thanks to the generosity of our members, the USSSA Foundation has funded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships to eligible members and their families over the past 15 years.

In addition to the General Foundation Scholarship, the Julie Cross Memorial Scholarship, the Ron Shurer Memorial Scholarship, and the USSSA 9/11 Scholarship are all open. Eligibility requirements can be found in the Members Only / Member Benefits section of the website.

Please note: ALL scholarship applications MUST be submitted ONLINE and the deadline is April 7, 2023. Awardees will be notified by the end of May and checks will be mailed directly to the educational institutions in July.


By the end of the Civil War, nearly one-third of all currency in circulation was counterfeit. As a result, the country's financial stability was in jeopardy.

To address this concern, the Secret Service was established in 1865.


The 1865 Fundraiser for USSSA Scholarships

The starting point for great futures. Confirming what we value. A reset on stability.


To honor our history, give $18.65 to the USSSA Foundation Scholarship Fund.


Let our many small gifts uphold a big future. 1865: It’s a number we can all get behind.
(And we’re not going to dictate where you put the decimal point.)

Averting Targeted School Violence

New Video on Averting Targeted School Violence

The U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) extends our deepest condolences to all communities impacted by targeted school violence.

USSS Stars

As part of its mission to prevent targeted violence, the National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) has long maintained a particular focus on the safety of children in schools. To further advance this mission of protecting school communities, NTAC has released a video which highlights the findings and implications of its research on school violence prevention based upon the study Averting Targeted School Violence: A U.S. Secret Service Analysis of Plots Against Schools (2021). This study examined 67 disrupted plots against K-12 schools that took place between 2006 and 2018. This important video describes the thinking and behavior of the plotters, as well as their attack plans, how the plots were discovered, and how this information can be utilized to prevent violence in schools.
