Unfortunately, we are unable to offer life membership as our membership fees are reviewed each year.
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 the level of qualification. If you do want proof of your designatory letters or professional registration, you can request a certification letter.
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 Member and Customer Services.
Will I receive a replacement card if I transfer to a different category of membership or if it is lost?
You will automatically receive a replacement card if your category of membership changes. If your card is lost please contact the membership services team: Tel: +44 (0)1438 765678
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 selecting ‘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.
