  • Note:
  • Please note that an SFFSA membership covers a single person, a co-habitating couple, or entire family. In other words, if your are living under one roof, you only need a single membership. You do however, get only one copy of PROBE, no matter how large the number of people covered by a membership.
  • To make life easier for ourselves, especially when it comes to renewals, we charge new members the Pro Rata rate applicable at the time they join.

  • Local:
    Subscriptions are R275 per annum for local members (in the Gauteng area.)

  • Country:
    Subscriptions are R200 per annum for country members (not in the Gauteng area.)

  • International:
    US$30.00 (or equivalent), with an additional US$30.00 to receive Probe by airmail
