METHOD OF PAYMENT

Direct Deduction at Source(DDS)


Members can have monthly membership dues deducted directly from their superannuation payments by signing a form authorizing Public Works and Government Services Canada to deduct their dues from their pension cheque. This option of payment is optional, but it is strongly recommended because of its simplicity of administration, the safety of the process and the lesser costs of management compared with the payment by check. Furthermore, it can be revoked whenever, by a simple notice given to the national Office of the FSNA. This authorization is on the application form, it is necessary to complete it if you privilege this method of payment.

Important notice : The DDS cannot be applied to RCMP survivor allowances, judges’ pensions and judges’ survivor allowances. It is the same for associate members. Payment by a cheque is the only method of payment.


Payment by cheque

A member can prefer to pay its contributions by cheque rather than by monthly deduction at source, in which case he has to issue a cheque in the name of the FSNA in the amount corresponding to the chosen type of membership. The period of contribution corresponds to the calendar year and falls due on December 31st. It is up to the member which chooses this option to make sure, to continue to take advantage of the advantages associated to its membership in the FSNA, that the expenses of membership are acquitted before January 31st of the new year. A mail reminder or an e-mail will be made for the annual renewal
