IMRF Membership Fee Increase As you know, IMRF is a registered charity and depends on the subscriptions paid by members to cover its operating costs. Inevitably, these costs have increased significantly over the past few years and so, at their meeting in October, the Trustees reluctantly decided that membership fees would need to be increased. Whilst they understand that a price rise may prove difficult for some members they feel that it is necessary to cover increases in operating costs due to inflation. This is the first membership fee increase in six years and will take effect from 1st January 2019. Fees will increase by approximately 5% as shown below.
