Online Renewal

You can now renew your American Legion membership online.  The online renewal for your membership is the fastest and easiest way to pay your dues.  All you need is a credit card and your American Legion ID number.  Your ID number can be found on your current membership card.

When you use the online renewal, you will receive a temporary membership card that can be exchanged with your Post Membership Chairman for the regular printed membership card.  Your local Post will be notified through the My Legion website that you have renewed your membership.  The American Legion will also send your Post a check for the local portion of your dues.  It’s easy and it works.
