How do I make my renewal payment?

We offer four ways to renew – Direct Debit, online with your credit or debit card, by bank transfer, or by calling our customer services team.​

1. Direct Debit

Renewing by Direct Debit makes managing your membership renewal simple. Many members find Direct Debit is the easiest way to renew. With Direct Debit you can choose to spread your renewal fee with quarterly instalments, or you can pay the fee annually when it’s due. Once your direct debit is setup, you’ll receive a payment schedule and then annually in June.

We update our €/£ exchange rate every year for members who pay through SEPA (Euro) Direct Debits. For 2021, this exchange rate is €1.15 = £1.00. If you’re based in the Eurozone, you can set up a Euro Direct Debit by completing the SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) form and emailing it to us.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Calling customer service

Alternatively, you can pay by phone on +353 (0) 1 513 6796 (calls route to the UK). 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 +353 (0) 1 513 6796 (calls route to the UK).

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.​
