Concessional membership 
We understand there are many different circumstances that can impact your ability to work or earn an income.

Perhaps you’ve been out of the workforce for a substantial period due to unemployment or family care responsibilities, working part-time on significantly reduced hours, or on unpaid parental leave.

A member who is financially disadvantaged, a full-time student, retired or not in full-time employment may apply to become a concessional member. 

Those seeking the concessional rate should contact the AARE office and provide evidence as to why they warrant concessional status. Students should provide proof of student status (e.g. a letter from the university).

Concessions are granted at the discretion of the AARE management, on a case-by-case basis.
