What It Costs

Membership subscriptions for the MLSA are 0.7% of basic salary. Click here to download an MLSA application form.

If you pay by deduction at source, your payroll department will deduct 0.7% of your basic salary and send it to the MLSA. The deduction will be itemised on your payslip. If you change employer, you will need to authorise your new employer to continue this deduction. You can do this by sending the MLSA a new signed mandate for the deduction, which can be found on the MLSA membership application form. We will amend your membership record and forward the mandate to your new employer so that your subscription continues.

If you pay by cheque or standing order, it is your responsibility to ensure that your subscription is paid in a timely manner and does not fall into arrears. The MLSA rulebook states that members in arrears for more than 3 months can be deemed to have ceased their membership.
