Your ARTA Membership Card


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.

The ARTA Membership Card contains three important pieces of information.

  • Your membership number.
  • Type. This is your membership category and is mostly just for office use. The different types of cards are: ARTA Membership, Honourary 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 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.
