HASSRA National Associate Membership
Membership of the HASSRA National Associate Membership (NAMs) scheme is available to anyone who:
• works for a qualifying employer which does not deduct subscriptions directly from salary (eg. Group 4 staff on DWP premises, agency staff in DH); or
• has ceased to be eligible for ordinary HASSRA membership because they are no longer employed by a qualifying employer
• is not currently eligible to join HASSRA as a retired member.
Qualifying employers includes the Department of Health, Department for Work and Pensions, the Food Standards Agency or any of these organisations' executive agencies, arm's length bodies or qualifying contractors.
National Associate Members will be affiliated to a HASSRA regional association of their choice. Failure to nominate a region will result in a default affiliation based on the member’s address provided at the time of application.
It is imperative that once you have joined HASSRA as a National Associate Member that you e-mail the NESLC Secretary (Alan.Borrowdale@dwp.gov.uk) to nominate NESLC as your preferred HASSRA club. Failure to do so will result in you not being a member of NESLC and you will not be able to use any NESLC facilities such as the gym or take advantage of NESLC trips and offers.
Retiring from DWP/HMRC?
You can continue to be a member of NESLC if you maintain your membership to HASSRA. When renewing your membership please inform HASSRA that you wish to nominate NESLC as your chosen club and also inform Alan.Borrowdale@dwp.gov.uk of your retirement date and contact details. If you don’t tell us, we’ll not be able to keep you up to date with our offers and events.
