Claim a reduced subscription

Reduced subscription claim - 2018

You may be eligible to claim a reduced subscription for 2018 if you are not retired and have:

  • an income less than £25,100 for the 12 months ended 31 December 2017, or
  • started or expect to start parental leave in 2017 or 2018

How to claim

Complete the reduced subscription claim form and email it to us  as a  scan or photo, if you wish.

If you are paying by Direct Debit, you must send us the form by 1 December 2018 to ensure the first subscription instalment amount is correct.

Parental leave

You can get parental leave concession for your 2018 subscription if you are the child's parent and want to take leave as primary carer for that child.  You can claim if your child is born or adopted in 2017 or 2018 using this form, but you cannot claim twice for the same pregnancy or adoption.

2018 reduced subscription claims will not be processed after 31 December 2018.

Financial hardship

Contact us in confidence if your income has suddenly reduced.   This scheme is not for members who:

  • are retired
  • are on parental leave
  • have voluntarily given up their main source of income, except for voluntary redundancy

If you are eligible, we will send you the 2018 subscription concession claim form to complete and return to us by 31 May 2018.  You will also have to pay a £60 reduced subscription

You won't have to make a payment immediately and your membership status will not be affected.
