The Foreign Service Family Reserve Corps (FSFRC) is a non-pay program. The FSFRC was created in order to improve the efficiency of the hiring process for Appointment Eligible Family Members (AEFMs). Family members who meet the eligibility requirements and are accepted into the FSFRC, will be appointed into a position without compensation or benefits. FSFRC members will then compete for available positions at their sponsoring employee's post overseas.
Foreign Service family members represent a rich and talented pool of professionals from a variety of backgrounds that the Department would like to utilize to fill skill gaps at posts abroad. The Foreign Service Family Reserve Corps (FSFRC) will create a workforce capable of rapid assignment to positions overseas, including sensitive positions. The FSFRC will improve efficiency in the hiring and Entry on Duty (EOD) process for Appointment Eligible Family Members (AEFMs), centralize the administration of family member hiring, and allow for certain efficiencies in security clearance processing.

Applicants will be evaluated based solely on FSFRC Program eligibility requirements using agency-developed standards. Applicants who meet the program requirements will be accepted as members into the FSFRC. NOTE: If it is determined that you do not meet program eligibility requirements or fail to submit proper documentation in a timely manner, you will be removed from consideration. Recertification to remain a member of the FSFRC will be conducted annually for all Category One and Category Two, and every five (5) years for FSFRC members in Category Three for members not currently in a local assignment. The FSFRC member will be required to respond to ongoing security reinvestigation requests from Diplomatic Security (DS). The FSFRC appointment will terminate if the member no longer qualifies for the FSFRC or does not respond to the Talent Services’ (GTM/TS) recertification query within the required timeline. FSFRC members must notify TS of any event (such as divorce, etc.) which may result in a loss of eligibility for the program.
