MOAA’s member service representatives (MSRs) are consistently some of the most informed members of the headquarters team. We routinely interact with and support every business unit and every mission area of the association. MSRs also undergo an intensive six-week training program at the start of their employment to prepare for any and all questions our members may have.


In 2018, the Member Service Center responded to a total of:

  • 33,809 phone calls
  • 10,288 emails
  • 4,392 online chats


The team provides outstanding customer service as evidenced by member feedback in calls, emails, chats, and post-engagement surveys. The following comment is typical of the feedback the MSC receives from MOAA’s members:


"I have been dealing with ‘customer service’ (which is how I think of the MSC) for about 60 years and cannot think of any activity that has done it better. Every single (MSR) I've dealt with has shown the epitome of courtesy, respect, knowledge, and expertise. It is an absolute pleasure to dial 800-234-6622 just to chat with these MOAA front-line reps ... and I do that a lot these days working committee module actions.”


MOAA’s Member Service Center is not your average call center, it is truly a unique member benefit. Whether it be a question on current legislation, military benefits, or just an account update, MOAA’s Member Service Representatives can help you with all of that and much more.
