Paying Your Membership
How can I pay for my membership?
Membership premiums can be paid via direct debit, credit card, cheque, money order or via BPAY.
What happens if I miss a contribution payment?
Failure to pay membership contributions within two months of your last “paid to date” (that is, the day to which your membership is paid up), will mean your membership and entitlement to benefits will cease. Once you have paid the arrears amount, your membership will resume and you will once again be entitled to benefits.
