Fellows may request their 2024 subscription invoice for prepayment. The following rules will apply to prepayment: Prepayment is only available for ANZCA and FPM full annual memberships/subscription fees for existing fellows – full year only, excluding concessions or pro-ratas. All other fees are excluded. A maximum of two (2) years can be prepaid - the current membership/subscription year plus one additional year. Prepaid membership fees are not refundable for “change of mind” or “change in circumstance”. Requests for prepayment of 2024 membership fees should be made by COB on Tuesday 31 January 2023. Payment will be due 30 days from the invoice date. Fellow must make an email request to email@example.com to prepay a future year annual membership/subscription fee. Apply for a concession We recognise that your circumstances may change. You may be undertaking further studies, volunteering overseas or taking time away from work to care for your family. If this is the case, you may be eligible for a concession. This is a reduction (discount) in the standard annual subscription fee. Types of concession The concessions types available are outlined here. Please note that supporting documentation may be required when submiting your application. Is my concession automatically applied? If you are a fellow aged 65 or over, we will automatically grant you an aged-based concession on your annual subscription. Fellows who received concession 5 (fellows practicing another speciality) from 2018, will automatically be awarded this concession henceforth. Should circumstances change, fellows are required to inform the college. If you are planning on retiring please send us an email with the date of your retirement. You will continue to remain a fellow of the college and no further fees will be raised in relation to your membership. All other concessions must be applied for annually, and are awarded prospectively for the forthcoming year Apply for a concession Apply online for a concession to your annual ANZCA membership subscription.
