Terms and Conditions: The VFW Life Membership installment plan allows any VFW member/applicant to purchase a Life Membership by making
either 11 or 23 monthly installments after an initial payment of $35.00. The member will be issued a "Provisional
Life" membership card and can elect, upon receipt of first monthly invoice, to pay via check, credit card or ACH Debit.
The monthly fee (shown in the payment schedule) includes a $1.75 monthly service fee. The applicable Life Membership
fee is to be determined from the schedule using the applicant's age on December 31 of the installment plan year in which
the application is submitted, regardless of actual date of birth. A permanent Life Membership card will be issued upon
completion of this agreement. No refund of any portion of current year dues will be made.
A "payoff amount" will be printed on each monthly invoice, allowing the member
the option to pay in full, thereby avoiding additional service fees. If the member pays off early, no additional monthly
fees will be collected.
Delinquencies will be handled as follows:
· Up to 30 days - continue to bill.
· 31 to 120 days - delinquency can be corrected through make up payment
or plan end date pushed forward.
· More than 120 days - member is dropped from the installment plan, all payments made to date, excluding
service fees, are applied to future years dues. Any excess amount will remain on the member's account.
