Eligibility for assistance

NASUWT members who are three or more months in arrears with their subscriptions at the time of the accident/development of the illness are not entitled to legal assistance and cannot establish entitlement to assistance by subsequently paying arrears.

Retired, former, career break and associate members who were in membership at the time the issue arose, and, in the case of former members, providing they have not joined another teacher trade union, are also entitled to assistance.
