Renewing TDF Membership#1
Posted: 2/1/19 at 1:20am



Ive been a TDF member for six years or so now and Ive never had an issue with renewing but now its telling me I need proof that I qualify all over again (my HR department is not easy to get ahold of at all) and the price has gone up to $40? There is no membership for 100 miles away from NYC anymore??

Just mainly wondering if Im actually going to be forced to get a document saying that I am a full time employee eligible for overtime or not. Has anyone else had this happen?

Yup...a year or two ago...i don't remember how mant many years in I was, but i dont remember doing it every year.  People change jobs and stop being eligible. Cant blame them.  I think i just photocopy my id. 

Last time I renewed, it was the long distance membership. My renewal is in the spring.

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

I've been asked every couple of years to send in documentation that I still qualify. Yes, I did pay $40.00 recently to renew. I don't know if the 100 mile option has been discontinued. You should just ask them.

I renewed about a month ago. I didn't see the long-distance membership option so I emailed about it - turns out they discontinued it in August.

As for re-certifying, I haven't had to do that yet but I definitely remember seeing something about having to do it every few years (don't remember how many).

They've been asking me for a renewal of proof for about a year, but still let me buy tickets. So... I wouldn't worry too much about it.

If you have a staff ID you can make a copy and send that to TDF as proof of eligibility as well. At least that worked for me when I set up my account.

I was asked a month ago to renew (which is a thing that happens from time to time). I sent my renewal in and have yet to hear back and am still getting the "submit proof of eligibility" message from them. I've followed up multiple times and have now just given up. if it becomes a problem in buying tickets then i'll worry about it.

They have been asking me for that info for over five years.

I've tried to send it several times via email and it always gets booted back to me. The past several years I've just stopped trying and still have my membership.

so if you live outside the NYC area you can no longer apply for membership? I qualify but live in California, and take theater trips to new york every year

I think what above posters are referring to is the $10 membership that was offered if you lived within 100 miles of nyc. I always paid $10 and live in Buffalo. I’m not sure if $10 is an option anymore. 

It sounds like $40 will be for everyone.

Thanks guys! I guess I’ll just pay the $40 and if it becomes an issue I’ll start hounding HR.

Last year (February) I received my first "proof of eligibility" notice from them about renewal. I was enrolled as a recent graduate (up to age 26) but was I turning 27 in 2018. I have since enrolled under "full time non-exempt employee" and did need to submit a letter from my HR department. I received an email shortly after saying they received my proof of eligibility and updated my membership. Yesterday, I received a notification it's time to renew (for $40) but was not told I need to send in eligibility again.
