SUBSCRIPTION POLICY AND MEMBERSHIP OPERATION

(for subscriptions due 1 October 2017)

Personal Details
As detailed in Regulations 19, 20 and 21 the IFoA maintains a register of members and each
member is responsible for ensuring that their details in the register are complete, accurate
and current using the website personal profile facility or otherwise by contacting the
membership team by email at membership@actuaries.org.uk.
All members should ensure that they have marked their employment details with a
predominant and functional work area. Signing up to the Member Interest Groups can also be
done online and we would encourage you to join these.

Criteria for applications for Reduced Rate Subscription


In order to be eligible to pay the reduced rate subscription your total income, from all sources,
including pension and investment income, must be less than 30 times the current subscription
rate applicable to you.
Evidence of income may be requested.
Application for a reduced rate should be made prior to payment of your subscription as no
st
refunds will be made retrospectively and should be made no later than 31 December 2017

Full exemption from the requirements of the CPD Scheme


If you are granted a full exemption you will benefit from the reduced rate subscription.
The exemption must be held for the entire duration of the subscription year and be applied for
before 31 December 2017

Members classified as Retired (Cat7) under the CPD Scheme


You can apply to be classified as retired (Cat7) if you:
 are not in paid work which relies upon your actuarial training and experience, in the
widest interpretation, or on your membership of the IFoA; and
 do not expect to return to such work in the foreseeable future,

You may find this flowchart helpful in determining whether you are eligible to apply for retired
status.
Members classified as retired (category 7) will be eligible to pay the reduced subscription.

Partial Regulation
Fellows and Associates working outside the UK can opt to be regulated by another IAA
affiliated actuarial body and not by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Completion of a
Certificate of Eligibility for partial regulation is required. This must be received by 31
December 2017

Please note that a late payment surcharge will be applied to all applications which are
received in November and December.
If the circumstances of a member on a reduced, retired or partial subscription changes during
the year they must inform the Membership Team who will discuss their options.
