P.D. James Memorial Fund

The P.D. James Memorial Fund (formerly known as the Pension Fund) is available to SoA members.

This Fund offers regular payments to a small number of SoA members who find themselves in financial hardship.

Awards are given by a committee to long-term SoA members who are either aged 60 or over or are completely incapacitated for work. The fund currently distributes £2,200 per annum to each recipient.

Awards are granted at the discretion of the P.D. James Memorial Fund Committee (formerly known as the Pension Fund Committee). The Committee consists of the Chair of the Management Committee and six other Members, three elected by the Management Committee and three by the Members of the SoA.

Applications are now open until 31 July 2018 for grants starting in October 2018. To apply, download and print this application form and return it to us by post. If you have any queries, contact Catherine Fuller on cfuller@societyofauthors.org.
