Who can apply for a retired rate?
You can apply for the retired rate if you have retired from employment.
How much does the retired rate cost?
For the period to 30 April 2017, there is a flat fee of £50 per year for all retired rate membership subscriptions. Those members on a retired membership rate who have an Engineering Council (EC) registration will have a reduced annual EC renewal fee. This will be £16.60 for CEng and £13.90 for IEng. These fees are reviewed annually.
When should I apply for the retired rate?
You can apply for the retired rate at any time. A retired rate can be granted at any point during the calendar year in which you will retire. If you have already paid your yearly subscription your retired rate will take affect from your next renewal.
What if I am due to retire half way through my current subscription?
We can grant you the retired rate at any point in the year in which you retire, for example if you are due to renew in May and you are due to retire in December of the same year we will grant you the retired rate for your renewal in May.
I pay by Direct Debit, how can I ensure that the correct amount is debited from my account?
To ensure that the correct amount is deducted from your bank account, please return your retired rate application form to us by the 1st of the month prior to your renewal start date.
