North East Retired Members Group
A member leaving employment upon retirement and who was previously allocated to a working member category/branch is eligible to become a retired member. Prospect do not recruit from amongst the already retired and generally expect working members to have transferred to retired membership within six months of their retirement date.
Every working member that notifies Prospect of their retirement is issued with an explanation of our services that encourages them to continue their membership in the appropriate category. Where the individual is retiring and does not intend to engage in any employment then we encourage them to accept retired membership and if this is undertaken they are allocated to the appropriate Retired Members Group Area (RMGA). RMGAs are based upon home postcodes or the last address notified to the Prospect membership department.
