Re: AMF hike rolled back?

Count your blessings.  Since your certification cycle starts Mar 2019, you have the option of loaning (ISC)² money in exchange for delaying the impact to you.  The unfortunate members who's cycle starts August 2019 have no such opportunity.  I do believe that (ISC)² could have played this better if everyone had been allowed to pay up to two years in advance, not just those lucky enough to have their cycle start at the right time.

 

Keep in mind that the only thing today is that they have announced a rate increase effective July 1st.  The rate has not yet changed.

Re: AMF hike rolled back?

@Shannon It technically depends on when a cycle starts/ends for each individual member. If you are in a current three-year cycle that expires after June 30, 2019, you can pay the current rate up until June 30, 2019. If you recently renewed or started a new three-year cycle, members will have up until June 30, 2019 to pay all three years at the current rate. Technically, only the first year would be due at the start of the three-year cycle, but to save a little money, they have the option to pay at current rate, up until June 30, 2019.

@amandavanceISC2, in my case, with my certification having to be renewed by 28 February 2019 would it have been an option for me to pay for all 3 years (2019, 2020, & 2021) at 85 USD, for a total of 255 USD..?  (I've already made the payment for a single year, but I want to know if I'd understood it correctly)

Re: AMF hike rolled back?

@Shannon Yes, since your cycle start date would be March 1, 2019, you will have the option to pay $85.00 for the next three-year cycle as long as you make the payment prior to June 30, 2019. If you wait, your second year AMF will be due March 1, 2020 for $125.00. If you pay all three years now, you will save around $120.00 for the three-year cycle.

Re: AMF hike rolled back?

I have called up the representative from local ISC2.

The so called "option to pay at the end of 3 year certification" is gone.

 

So "forget" it, regardless of which year your are in , their descriptions or text on the "last" year of certification cycle is actually not a good example.

 

For me, I am holding CISSP (cycle start in late April) and CCSP (cycle start in late Oct).

After discussing with the representative, she gives me tips and information and so I will pay up (before June)

2018-2019 CISSP - US$85

2018-2019 CCSP - US$100

2019-2020 CISSP - US$85

and likely prepaid

2020-2021 CISSP - US$85

which make both my certification current till 2021.
