Married, partnered, or single, all members pay a minimum of $15 US to be a member of Prime Timers Worldwide Independent Chapter. This membership option provides electronic versions of "Prime Times" and "Outs and Ins" newsletters describing happenings in and about Prime Timers and occasional direct communication. You may submit a joint or individual new or renewal application if coupled. All communication for this option is by email. For those without a computer to receive email or for those who prefer a paper version of newsletters and communication, you may select the "postal" option. Those members pay $30 to defray a portion of postage and printing costs. Most couples opt to pay the partner minimum dues of $15 and $30 for the paper version if they do not use a computer and share the copy. If they list an email address, they will receive both electronic and postal distributions. For new members, the dues structure is the same as above except between July and December there is a discount described on the application. Clear as mud? Hopefully not!
