From 01 April 2020 we'll be introducing new concessionary membership fees.
|Category||Renewal cost||Maternity/paternity leave (75% discount for 39 weeks, full fee for 13 weeks)||Low wage (50% discount) earning less then £10,000 or the equivalent of $15,000)||Unemployed (100% discount)||Retired (not working) with CPD (75% discount)||Retired (not working) without CPD||Ill health (75% discount)|
Members who have retired completely from working life can continue their membership at a concessionary rate. The options are as follows;
Retired with CPD – If you want to keep your Technical, Graduate, Chartered or Chartered Fellow status you will need to maintain your CPD record online via MyIOSH. Ensuring that it meets our standard of compliance and is updated at least every six months. You will need to re-apply for the concessionary rate on an annual basis if you chose this option.
Retired without CPD – If you decide not to maintain your CPD then your status will be changed to one of the following; TechIOSH (retired), GradIOSH (retired) MIOSH (retired) or FIOSH (retired). If you take this option then you will NOT need to re-apply for the concessionary rate the following year. Your renewal will automatically be reduced to the concessionary rate going forward.
Applying for concessionary rates
To join as an IOSH member under a concessionary rate, you will need to download and complete both the membership application form and the concessionary application form and submit both to email@example.com along with one piece of evidence from the list provided on the form.
To renew an existing IOSH membership under a concessionary rate, you will need to download and complete the concessionary application form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with one piece of evidence from the list provided on the concessionary form.
You will receive a reply to your application within five working days. The processing of the application can take between seven and 10 days.
If approved for the concessionary rate, this will be valid for 12 months (unless you have retired and are not maintaining your CPD). You will therefore need to re-apply again next year if your circumstances remain the same.
