PICPA Special Circumstances

The PICPA wants to ensure you can maintain your membership, no matter what your financial situation. Special Circumstance rates are available to members for various reasons including, but not limited to, the following:*

  • Unemployment or underemployment
  • Long-term financial difficulties due to illness or other reasons
  • Stay-at-home parents or long-term care givers who have temporarily left the workforce
  • Lack of employer reimbursement/new employer unable to reimburse
  • Lack of income

To be considered for the Special Circumstance rate, please complete the Special Circumstance form below. You will hear from our member relations team after your request is reviewed. If approved, you will receive a response with your rate at the time of approval (usually within seven business days).

If you have additional questions, please contact membership@picpa.org or call (215) 496-9272.


Request Special Circumstance

*The Special Circumstance rate is subject to approval by the PICPA member relations team. Submission of a Special Circumstance Request Form does not guarantee approval of a discounted rate. The Special Circumstance rate is a temporary dues rate adjustment, and not a long-term membership renewal solution. If you have requested the Special Circumstance for more than three years in a row, for the same reason, you may be contacted by the member relations team to review other membership options. Please wait to receive your specific Special Circumstance rate before submitting a payment.

Reason for Requesting Special Circumstance







Request Dues Waiver

The PICPA also offers the possibility of a dues waiver for members who experience extreme difficulty and are unable to pay. Dues waiver requests must be approved by the PICPA Board of Directors. If you would like to be considered for a dues waiver, please email membership@picpa.org. The request will be reviewed by the Board at their next scheduled meeting: until that time, your membership will remain in good standing.
