Retired from your practice? You’re eligible for exclusive membership status!


Maintain Your Membership Beyond Your Professional Career

Your member benefits don't stop when you retire or temporarily leave the workforce. APTA Virginia offers reduced membership rates for retired and life members. Members must meet all requirements to be eligible to receive exclusive membership status.

Retired Membership
If you find yourself in early retirement, and have been a member for at least 20 years, Retired Membership might be an option for you—stay connected to, support your profession, and enjoy the many benefits of being a member, all at a reduced rate. Individuals who qualify for this designation will sign an official statement at each dues period for which the individual is eligible for Retired Membership, confirming that you are no longer engaged in an occupation related to physical therapy. 

Life Membership
If you are at least 65 years old and have completed at least 30 years of APTA membership, or if you are unable to practice physical therapy due to a permanent disability and have completed at least five years of APTA membership, you may qualify for Life Membership with reduced membership dues. 

Keep These Great Benefits and So Much More!

Stay Connected. Participate in APTA Virginia's members-only special interest groups, find the right volunteer opportunity, and take advantage of unlimited access to our website, packed with guidance from our subject matter experts and leaders in the profession.

Stay Current. Receive our monthly newsletter the Virginian, 11 issues per year of APTA Magazine, unlimited access to PTJ, APTA's official scientific journal, special Friday Focus newsletters, and full text access to research and articles from more than 4,500 clinical and academic publications through the EBSCO discovery service.

Stay in Touch. Attend APTA Virginia meetings and events, often at a lower member rate, and keep those meaningful connections and friendships.

Give Back to Your Specialty. Get involved in legislative and advocacy efforts to propel the specialty forward and support public policy priorities.

We hope you will continue your membership or reinstate your membership if it has previously lapsed.
