Reduced subscription claim - 2019

You may be eligible to claim a reduced subscription for 2019 if you are not retired and have:

  • an income less than £25,900 for the 12 months ended 31 December 2018, or
  • started or expect to start parental leave in 2018 or 2019

How to claim

Complete the 2019 Reduced Subscription Claim Form (2018 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 2019 subscription if you are the child's parent and want to take leave as primary carer for that child for at least three months.  You can claim if your child is born or adopted in 2018 or 2019 using this form, but you cannot claim twice for the same pregnancy or adoption.

2019 reduced subscription claims will not be processed after 31 December 2019.
