All members of ARTA are issued a membership card. A second card is supplied to members who subscribe to the ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan. Each of these cards has important features that you should be familiar with.
Your ARTA Membership Card
The ARTA Membership Card contains three important pieces of information.
- Your membership number. Use it as your user name at the ‘Member Login Portal’ when you are trying to access your membership information. There is an orange tab at the top of ARTA’s main web page. If you click on it, it will take you to a page with a box that says ‘Member Login Portal.’ Click on that and use your membership number as your user name.
- Type. This is your membership category and is mostly just for office use. The different types of cards are: Educational Sector Membership, Public Sector Membership, Honorary Membership and Life Membership.
- Expiry Date. This is your membership expiry date. If you are in doubt as to when your membership renewal is due, it is this date. Each time you renew your membership, you will receive a new membership card. That new card will have a new expiry date.
Your ARTA Retiree Benefits ID Card
Provide this card to your health care professionals such as your dentist and pharmacist.
Manage your Retiree Benefits by using the seven-digit identification number to access the ‘ARTA Members Health Care Account’ at https://arta.asebp.ab.ca. Notice that this is a different number from your membership number.
If your extended health care coverage includes travel, make sure to take this card with you on all trips. You will require this card in the case of any emergency while you travel.
All emergency travel numbers are on the back of this card.
