Want to pay the discount rate?

Discount rate applies to full time and part time rates only and payment must be made before 10 February 2020. If you are currently paying via payroll deductions, you will need to advise your employer directly to cease deductions from 2020.

Automatic payers with no changes in 2020?

If there are no changes for 2020 to your professional or personal details, you do not need to return the renewal.

New employer in 2020?

Return the renewal this is especially important for payroll deduction payers as payment is not portable between employers and your new employer may not offer this service.

Change of workload in 2020?

Return the renewal to ensure you are paying the rate applicable to your work status in 2020.

Taking maternity leave or LWOP in 2020?

Return the renewal as we do offer rates that reflect your work status. If you are working casually whilst on leave you will need to pay a Casual membership.

Moving to casual work in 2020?

Return the renewal as we offer a Casual rate that provides you all the usual benefits at a rate reflective of your work status.

Retiring in 2020?

Return the renewal to pay the retired rate. Changes to Fair Work Legislation mean we can no longer offer industrial coverage under this rate. If you’re working casually you will need to take up Casual membership.

We hope this information helps you, but if you have other questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our best wishes for a successful Term 4 - we look forward to assisting in 2020.
