How do I make my renewal payment?
We offer three ways to renew – online with your credit or debit card, by bank transfer, or by calling our customer services team.
1. Renew online
You can pay online via a credit or debit card. If you haven't already got a CIPD web account, you can use your email address and membership number to set one up. You can also use your account to access your member-only benefits and content.
2. Bank transfer
If you prefer to pay by bank transfer, use the details below. Please make sure you provide your membership number and surname as your reference, so we can update your account (without it, we won’t know you’ve paid and your membership may be cancelled). Your membership number may be formatted like this 12345678 or like this 1234567X and you’ll find it in your renewal emails or by logging into My Profile.
- Sort Code: 30-99-66
- Account number: 00549645
- Account name: CIPD
- Reference: Your 8-digit member number (then surname if space permits)
- International payments may also need our BIC Code: LOYDGB21070 or IBAN code: GB52LOYD30996600549645
Bank transfers usually take three working days to reach us, and you’ll receive a receipt by email up to three working days after that. If you don’t receive a receipt within a week of sending your payment, please email us with your payment date and membership number and we’ll check your record.
3. Calling customer service
Alternatively, you can pay by phone on +44 (0)20 8612 6242. Our lines will be busy as we approach the 1 July renewal date so please bear with us.
When will I receive my membership card for 2021-22?
To support our commitment to sustainability, we’re no longer sending a membership card to every member automatically. This will save 1.5 tonnes of paper every year. There are other, sustainable and convenient ways to show you’re a CIPD member. Find out more.
Can I get financial assistance with my fees?
We’re able to offer reduced membership fees to members who have been financially impacted by COVID-19, those on a career break or maternity leave, job seekers and members aged 60+. Find out more or call us on +44 (0)20 8612 6242.
We are, unfortunately, not able to put your membership on hold for any period of time. If you wish to cancel your membership, call us as soon as possible to let us know that you wish to resign. If you do not inform us of your intention to resign, you will continue to be contacted regarding the annual renewal.
