21,000 and counting Legionnaires beat dues increase with multiyear membership

More than 21,000 American Legion members have selected the multiyear membership option to renew or join since its launch in early December 2023. The multiyear members locked in the current national per-capita rate of $18.50 for the next three years to beat the $5 dues increase that goes into effect July 1. You too can beat the dues increase by selecting a three-year membership now. Here’s how:

- To renew your membership for 2025, visit legion.org/renew and select the three-year membership option.

- To join the Legion, visit legion.org/join and select the three-year membership option. 

The American Legion’s national per-capita dues will increase from $18.50 to $23.50 starting with the 2025 membership year. The $5 increase will go into effect July 1, 2024.

“It’s exciting to see the number of renewals and new joins who have selected the three-year membership option as this is what our members have been asking for,” National Membership & Post Activities Committee Chairman Matt Jabaut said.  “They are saving money, renewal notices in their mailbox and using a great benefit to being a member of The American Legion. I know our multiyear membership numbers will continue to grow before the July 1 dues increase, which I look forward to seeing.”

What you need to know about a multiyear membership:

- The three-year membership sign-up is only available on the national American Legion website (legion.org/renew and legion.org/join). Current or potential members cannot renew or join for a three-year membership at the post level or through MyLegion.org.

- Payment for the three-year membership is upfront. 

- There is not a discounted rate with the three-year membership.

- Membership cards will still be sent annually by Legion posts. 

- Those who sign up for a multiyear membership will not receive a renewal notice during the time they have signed up for the multiyear membership.

- A single year membership is still an option.
