Don’t Forget: Renew Your ALTA Membership for 2013

January 31, 2013

If you enjoy reading TitleNews, utilize the Treasury Department Blocked Persons search or use ALTA’s policy forms, don’t forget to renew your ALTA membership to ensure you continue to receive these member benefits.

Access to member benefits will end Jan. 31 if your membership is not renewed. Membership rates for 2013 are the same as 2012. Only the primary contact for your company can renew ALTA membership online. If you are unsure if you are the primary contact, contact the Membership Department at 800-787-2582, ext. 228 or email

As soon as your renewal application is received, it will take three to five business days for processing. You will then receive a packet with your company’s license and membership certificate. Your company’s seven digit ALTA ID number will be displayed on your membership certificate. All employees at your company are attached to this ID number, and have their own individual login information to access the website. If you have additional employees from your company that you would like to add, you will be able to do so at the end of the renewal process. To renew online:
