RMTs’ support of their professional association helps to keep the RMTBC strong, unified and effective. The RMTBC is pleased to offer MANY BENEFITS to our members.
Each member will now receive identity theft insurance with their dues. Activities that are part of your every day routine, such as using credit cards, ordering items over the phone or on-line by credit card, or submitting personal information to various levels of government can inadvertently expose your personal information to identity thieves. Your RMTBC dues now include expense reimbursements up to $25,000.00 per covered person to restore financial health and credit history as a result of an identity fraud.
RMTBC has several Membership Types. An RMT may qualify for any of these depending on the criteria. The base fee per year is provided below (to the right), and an Insurance Fee of $135.00 will be added to the overall Membership rate. All fees are a flat rate.
