If your email address is in our system and you are a basic or premium member, you can try resetting your password. If you are prompted to renew upon logging in, either your membership has expired, or you are receiving the newsletter only membership which allows you to access the free content available on the website through the newsletter. If you wish to access any basic or premium member content, you will need to upgrade by following the renewal prompts and selecting a paid membership option. If you are sure you have a paid membership, please check you are using the correct email address. Have you got a redirect from another email address to your inbox? Perhaps the original account was set up with your organization’s generic or your predecessor’s email address. If you are still unable to log in, please contact us and we'll assist you in gaining access.
If you have shared your individual membership log in details with anyone else you may find you are able to log in but are being logged out automatically. There is a system in place that doesn’t allow for simultaneous log-ins on the one account from many computers. If you are logged in, and someone else logs in using your account, you will be logged out automatically. Attempting to log back in will log out the other person and a circle of logging in and being signed out will occur. Individual memberships are not meant to be shared, to avoid this happening again, you should change your password under My Account once logged in. To upgrade to a group membership so all members of your team can utilize the website, please email email@example.com .

I’m trying to join but it says my email address already exists, what do I do?
This means you have been a member of Return to Work Matters at some point and are probably expired. Perhaps this was a free trial, an opt-in at a conference or as part of a group membership. You can simply log in using your email address and the password you were registered with (click forgotten password to retrieve it) and you will be prompted to renew as an individual member. If you wish to be added to a group membership please email email@example.com for assistance.
I’m getting the newsletter from you, does that mean I am a full member of Return to Work Matters?
Not necessarily. Expired members will still receive our newsletters but can only access the free content available in the newsletter. If you don’t remember paying for a membership in the past, this could be because you signed up for the free newsletter or a free trial at some point. To become a full member and access the many resources on the site, just log in using your email address and the password you were registered with (click forgotten password to retrieve it) and you will be prompted to renew as an individual member. If you wish to be added to a group membership please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
