Membership of the CII is open to anyone wholly or mainly
employed or engaged in work connected with insurance or financial
CII membership starts from just £6.24 a month.
This entry-level membership is for insurance practitioners who
are studying for their first CII qualification or who wish to enjoy
the benefits of membership without committing to formal study.
Membership for CII qualified
The CII offers a range of different levels of membership for
practitioners holding CII qualifications.
Each level entitles the member to use a designation highlighting
their technical knowledge and commitment to professional
development. In doing so, members must comply with the CII
continuing professional development (CPD) member scheme.
It is a requirement of membership that members join at the level
that equates to the highest CII qualification they hold.
The membership fees for the different levels of membership are
|Qualified (Certificate - SMP)
|Associate (Advanced Diploma)
Fees shown are applicable from 01 January 2017 to 31 December
2017. Please note for new and reinstating members a one-off
admission fee of £37 is also payable.
Note: Membership fees are reviewed each year
with effect from 01 January.
Direct debit payment
The easiest way to pay your membership fee in the UK is by
direct debit, especially as there is no additional charge for this.
To set up a Direct Debit, please return the attached Direct Debit mandate or call
Customer Service on 020 8989 8464.
Because the CII is a professional body approved by HMRC, and
membership is relevant to the job you do, membership fees qualify
for a tax deduction. This means that you can include it on your
annual tax return as an allowable expense and it will reduce your
final tax bill by a percentage of the fee. For example, if you
are a higher rate tax payer your £170 ACII title fee will reduce
your tax bill by 40% or £68 (plus any additional NHI reduction) so
the net cost to you would be only £102.
Your employer will also be entitled to show this as an allowable
expense if they pay your membership fee, but of course you can not
then claim the cost on your own tax return.
