APA offers special reduced rates for unemployed, in transition, retired, and life members. Members must meet all requirements to be eligible to receive the above rates.
Retired members are those who are a member of APA (current and continuous for 10 or more years); are 65 or older; and are completely retired, excluding part time non-planning related or nonprofessional work.
To be an APA Life member, you must be 65 or older and have been an active (current and continuous) member of APA for the past 25 years or more.
Unemployed/In Transition members who are unemployed or in transition may qualify for one year of reduced dues for every three years of continuous membership, up to a maximum of five years (15 years of membership). Members must request the reduced rate annually, and approval is subject to APA review.
