Membership Support Schemes

Reduced rates for special circumstances or retiring members


We understand that sometimes our members need support during challenging times in their careers. If you find yourself out of work for a period of time or you decide to leave the industry, these schemes mean you can continue your membership at reduced rates. And to ensure that we do not lose the experience of our long-serving members, we also offer a pricing scheme for retired members.

We offer three schemes to cover special circumstances:

  • Retired membership scheme - for those who have fully retired from active business life in the financial services industry
  • Continued membership scheme - for those leaving the industry but wishing to maintain their membership
  • Membership support scheme - for those taking a break from employment including redundancy, maternity leave and ill-health, or under other special circumstances

Note: These schemes are available to anyone who has been a member of the Chartered Insurance Institute/Personal Finance Society continuously for at least one year from the date of application.


Retired membership scheme

The scheme aims to encourage long term continued involvement of our retired members by offering membership at a reduced annual fee of just £40. In recognition of long service, for those with 20 years or more continuous membership*, the annual fee is just £20. Under the scheme you retain all the benefits of full PFS membership. This fee is payable at your normal renewal date.

If you wish to join the scheme, please complete and return the application form available on the right.

*Continuous membership also accrues within the retired membership scheme.
 

Continued membership scheme

If you have left the industry, you can continue your membership and maintain your relationship with the PFS through the continued membership scheme. This scheme offers a reduced annual membership fee of just £40. In recognition of long service, for those members with 20 years or more continuous membership*, the annual fee is just £20. Under the scheme you retain all the benefits of PFS membership. This fee is payable at your normal renewal date.

If you wish to join the scheme, please complete and return the application form available on the right.

* Continuous membership also accrues within the continued membership scheme.
 

Membership support scheme

The membership support scheme is designed to help those who are temporarily out-of-work through redundancy or unemployment; to support those taking a career break or on maternity leave; or for those who are not working through ill-health or other special circumstances.

This scheme enables you to continue your relationship with the PFS with a 50% reduction in your subscription fee. Under the scheme you retain all the benefits of full PFS membership. This fee is payable at your normal renewal date. If you wish to join the scheme, please complete and return the application form available on the right.

Note: continuous membership accrues within the membership support scheme.
