Do you offer life membership?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer life membership as our membership fees are reviewed each year.

 

How do I check my renewal status?

Once your renewal has been processed, an online receipt will be generated. You can access your receipt via the IET website. Alternatively, contact Membership Services on +44 (0) 1438 765678 or complete the online enquiry form.

Why does the membership card not show my designatory letters/professional registration?

The IET card is issued for the duration of your membership and designatory letters/professional registration details can change over time. Including these details would mean that replacement cards would be required more frequently, at a greater cost to the IET. The card is intended to demonstrate membership rather than level of qualification. If you do want proof of your designatory letters or professional registration, you can request a certification letter.

 

Will I get a replacement card each year?

The IET card is issued for the duration of your membership however; a replacement will automatically be issued if your personal details or category of membership change. Alternatively, you can request a new membership card from Membership Services.

I applied for a transfer to a different category of membership. How can I find out the progress of my application?

You can check your current membership category by going to My IET and clicking on ‘My membership’. If your transfer to a different category of membership is delayed or placed on hold, a letter will be sent detailing the reasons for this.
