Understanding your membership

Please take time to read the guide to your responsibilities as a member and examples of those circumstances in which we are unlikely to be able to help with a request for assistance.


How to renew your membership

You will receive your renewal pack one month before the end of your current membership year. When you have received your pack you will be asked to login into your MyMPS account and:

  1. Check your information
  2. Update any details that have changed
  3. Renew your subscription
    • You can pay by credit or debit card or set up a Direct Debit online at MyMPS or by contacting us by phone
    • If you already pay by Direct Debit, your payment will be taken automatically.

It is important to check your details as any missing or inaccurate information could affect your right to request assistance and in some circumstances can result in your membership being cancelled.
