Please describe the nature of your financial hardship, including how the COVID-19 pandemic caused your hardship, the current duration of the hardship and its anticipated end, if known, and any other specifics pertinent to your waiver request. Financial “Hardship” is considered to be the situation where the applicant’s loss or depreciation of income, due only to COVDID-19, makes it impossible for them to pay their dues for annual certification maintenance. Applicants should include or attach any information they believe is relevant to demonstrating their hardship case. The Financial Waiver Review Panel will endeavor to review requests and respond within 60 days of the date of request.
