To support our members during the global coronavirus crisis, we have extended the payment schedule for the 2020/2021 subscription year. This means that you have until 14 November 2020 to pay your subscription without surcharge. The surcharge that will be applied for late payment on 15 November will be just 1%, with a further 1% surcharge added on 2 January 2021. If your subscription remains unpaid by 15 February 2021, your membership will be cancelled.
The IFoA also collects the optional subscriptions for the Staple Inn Actuarial Society (SIAS) and for the specialist sections of the International Actuarial Association (IAA).
The simplest way to subscribe to any of the optional subscriptions is to email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will set up the subscription for you and you can pay online.
