Sometimes members need support during challenging times in their careers. If you're out of work for a while or decide to leave the sector, our support schemes help you continue your membership at reduced rates.
We offer three schemes, available to anyone who has been a member continuously for at least one year from the date of application.
Retired membership scheme
Suitable for those who have fully retired from active business life in the insurance sector. This scheme aims to encourage long term continued involvement of our retired members by offering membership at a reduced annual fee of just £40. Under the scheme you retain all the benefits of membership. This fee is payable at your normal renewal date.
Continued membership scheme
If you have left the sector, you can continue your membership and maintain your relationship with the CII through the continued membership scheme. This scheme offers a reduced annual membership fee of just £40. And, in recognition of long service, for those with 20 years or more continuous membership*, an annual fee of just £20. Under the scheme you retain all the benefits of membership. This fee is payable at your normal renewal date.
Membership support scheme
The membership support scheme helps those who are temporarily out-of-work through redundancy or unemployment, taking a career-break or on maternity/shared parental leave, who are not working through ill-health, working part-time or other special circumstances that may cause hardship in paying the full member fee.
This scheme enables you to continue your relationship with the CII with a 50% reduction in your subscription fee. Under the scheme you retain all the benefits of membership. This fee is payable at your normal renewal date.
*Continuous membership also accrues within all three schemes
