Ways to reduce your membership fee

While we hope that you find your membership is of high value, we know that you may want to find ways to save even further. The following list is designed to help you explore your options for reducing your membership fee if necessary.

Concessionary rate
If you are a student, a new graduate (you graduated within the past two years), from a designated EDA country, or are retired from full-time employment (and your earned income does not exceed £12,500 pa) you are eligible for our reduced concessionary rate of membership. Please see our fee structure for more details.

Ask your employer
Your employer may be willing to reimburse you or pay for your subscription if membership contributes to your professional development.

Corporate membership
We offer a corporate membership scheme with discounted subscriptions to organisations with at least 10 RSS fellows. Please contact A.Heath@rss.org.uk for more details and to discuss setting up a scheme.

Tax Relief
If you pay for your own RSS membership and you are a UK tax payer your membership fee might be tax deductible (eligible for tax-relief). Please visit www.rss.org.uk/tax for more.

Payment by Direct Debit
Fellows who opt to pay their membership fees by Direct Debit receive a small discount. You will need a UK bank account to setup this method of payment and will need to fill out and return our Direct Debit form. Please contact J.Ratajczak@rss.org.uk for more details.

Member discounts scheme
Find out how much you could save through our Member Discounts scheme, for which all fellows are automatically eligible. Fill in our savings calculator and you may find you save the cost of your membership, if not more!

e-Student and e-Teacher
Students and school teachers can now sign up for FREE membership at the RSS.

Please remember that the RSS is a registered charity and obliged to provide public benefit. Your membership fees go towards supporting our many activities, which all aim at creating a world with data at the heart of understanding and decision making!

Do feel free to contact the Membership Team at any time to discuss your options if you are having problems with your subscription fee at membership@rss.org.uk.
