Fees reductions and waivers
Career break and maternity leave
Members (all categories) on a career break or maternity leave are eligible for a one year waiver of the subscription fee from the date you notify us of these circumstances. If this applies to you please write to us at email@example.com. You retain all your benefits of membership during this period.
Retiring or retired
If you are retiring, and have been a paying Member with voting rights for at least five years, you can apply for free retired Member status by submitting our online declaration. Retired Members can access all the usual benefits of membership and attend Society meetings at a reduced cost.
If you are a Retired Member, you can submit an application to become a Fellow; if your application is successful you will be elected to Fellow (retired) status. You will continue to access all benefits, including those specific to Fellowship, without the need to pay an annual subscription.
If you pay your own Society membership subscription and are a UK taxpayer, you can claim the tax back on your annual tax self-assessment under section 201 of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act (1998). Further details can be found online.
If you are working in a developing country and find the cost of membership prohibitively high, please contact us for assistance.
