Membership

Since its inception in 1987 we have focused on helping firefighter's in New Zealand and their families.
The NZ Firefighters Welfare Society is a member of the Associated Agencies group of the New Zealand Fire Service.
Members of the Associated Agencies offer their members various benefits and in most cases these benefits are available to other members of the New Zealand Fire Service.

The Associated Agencies also includes the New Zealand Fire Service, Firesuper, NZ Firefighters Credit Union, United Fire Brigades Association, NZ Professional Firefighters Union, New Zealand Executive Fire Officers Society, Sports Council and Christchurch Emergency Services Credit Union.

CONTRIBUTION RATE AS OF APRIL 1, 2015
At the recent AGM in September, the following membership types were approved and since have been ratified by government. There are now 3 membership types: Junior, Ordinary, and Senior. Current Senior members between 60-65 may remain paying the senior contribution rate but will not be eligible for the funeral benefit. Any existing Senior member under the age of 65 may return to Ordinary membership until they reach 65 by contacting the office. The contribution fee schedule will be adjusted automatically as listed below unless a member contacts the office and requests otherwise. Senior members do not qualify for the funeral benefit.
