Making it easier to pay with ‘My Account’
 
We strongly encourage all nurses and midwives to set up an online account through My Account.
 
Most nurses and midwives now use My Account to pay the ARF.
 
Using My Account will make the transition to a new digital system in 2020 easier for you.
 
Please ensure you provide the correct postal address for your certificate to be posted to and the correct email address.
 
For more information about using My Account please see our information page.
 
The Options for ARF Payment from November onwards are:
 
Online 
 
If this is your first time setting up an online account with the NMBI please visit our website and click into the My Account tab.  When logging in for the first time, you will need to use your Personal Identification Number and the Personal Security Number previously issued to you by the NMBI. If you have forgotten or lost this number please contact our call centre on 1890 200 116 or 01 6398500 and select option 1. Alternatively, these will be issued to you by NMBI in your ARF notification letter.
 
Phone
 
You can contact our dedicated payments line on 1890 200 116 or 01 6398500 and select option 1 to make your payment by debit or credit card.  This 1890 line is open from 9.00am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
 
NMBI is no longer accepting direct debits and partial payments for ARF 2020
 
In advance of the introduction of a new digital platform next year NMBI has ceased accepting partial payments and direct debits for ARF 2020. 
 
Direct debits
 
Direct debits are being phased out over the next year in advance of the new digital platform being introduced. This is being done to avoid ambiguity regarding when an ARF is paid, and if a nurse or midwife is registered. The new system will result in a live Register; removing reliance on printed certs and the Register being live and updated immediately. 
 
Partial payments
 
There was a very low level of uptake of partial payments, and as we are now preparing for a new digital system we are streamlining everything in advance of that to make the transition to the new system easier for registered nurses and midwives next year.
