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.
