Is switching to IEA Smart Pay required?

Not yet. States all across the country are restricting the use of payroll deduction to pay union dues. Idaho is expected to follow suit within the next few years. In advance the expected mandate from the State of Idaho, IEA is working to move all members away from payroll deduction for paying their membership dues. Smart Pay makes it easy to implement a different payment method and ensures your continued membership in IEA.
