Members can pay annual membership dues to the American Legion every year either to the local post where one is a member or online at Legion.org. When paying online, members can make this annual fee an automatic payment from a verified checking account.
Members can choose to pay for a lifetime membership, which is called a Paid Up For Life membership. Members who choose this program pay either a lump sum or 12 monthly installments equal to the total membership amount. This program ensures the member never pays dues again, regardless of any future increase in dues. Mailed renewal notices remind members when to pay dues.
