Q. What are subscription dues and how do they work?

A.

Subscription dues are just like a magazine subscription. It gives you 365 days of membership in the VFW.  The basic breakdown of what is going to happen is: 

  • If you are an annual member and you pay your dues before January your expiration date will be January of the following year.  However, if you pay after that date whatever day your dues are processed at National that will be the new expiration date.
  • For example if you send in your dues to National on February 1 and National processed them on February 15th. Your new dues expiration date would be February 15th of the following year.
