Is my dues payment tax deductible?

Dues are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal tax purposes. Dues may be partially deductible under other provisions of the Internal Revenue code, such as trade or business expenses. The portion of your dues payment that supports lobbying efforts, 1.06%, is not deductible. Donations to the Education and Research Trust and Minority Scholarship Program may be tax deductible as charitable contributions.

Can I share a Common Address membership with a coworker?

The Common Address membership is only available to a school psychologist who shares a residential address with a current NASP Regular member and does not wish to receive duplicate copies of NASP publications.

Can I share my member login information with my colleagues?

NASP member benefits, including those accessed online, are provided exclusively for your use. Please do not share your website login username and password with others.

Does NASP offer group memberships?

NASP memberships are offered to individual school psychologists and graduate students; there are no group memberships.

What is the membership year?

The NASP membership year runs from July 1 through June 30.

When do my membership benefits take effect?

If you renew online, it usually takes 24 hours for your payment to be processed. While your membership is valid immediately, your access to certain benefits-Web access and professional liability insurance-does not take effect until your application has been processed. If you join by mail or telephone, please allow up to two weeks for processing.

Does my membership make me eligible for discounted professional liability insurance?

Yes, your NASP membership makes you eligible for discounted professional liability insurance with two companies:

  • Forrest T. Jones & Company, Inc. can be reached at (800) 265-9366 and offers life and health insurance to NASP members, in addition to offering professional liability insurance.
  • The American Professional Agency can be reached at (800) 421-6694 and offers professional liability insurance for NASP members.

NASP does not recommend one company over another; please call both agencies to see which policy will best fit your individual situation.

Does NASP accept purchase orders for membership dues?

We honor VISA, MasterCard, money orders, and personal checks as forms of payment; however, we are unable to accept purchase orders for membership dues unless accompanied by a check.

How can I get a membership card and certificate?

You can access your membership card and certificate online at any time. Shortly after you join or renew, you will receive an e-mail with a link to a personalized online membership card that you can print. If you need help accessing your card, please contact us at membership@naspweb.org, (866) 331-NASP, or (301) 657-0270.

Does joining my state association automatically make me a NASP member?

Your state association and NASP are separate organizations, each offering many benefits to its members. Joining a state organization does not make you a NASP member. Visit this list for information on your state association.
