Washington State residents, please note: Effective March 26, 2020 until further notice, the Network cannot accept new memberships from Washington State residents. We are allowed to serve and renew existing members, but cannot accept new orders from Washingtonians from this date forward.
We continue to fight this restriction by the Washington Office of Insurance Commissioner, just as we have for the past several years. Please share our optimism for a good resolution in the courts and check back with us periodically for updates. Updates are posted regularly at https://armedcitizensnetwork.org/join/fight-against-wa-insurance-commissioner as the case goes forward. If you wish to provide feedback, we recommend sharing your thoughts with the Insurance Commissioner https://www.insurance.wa.gov/connect-us.
New members pay $135 for their first year's dues and renewing members pay $95 per year. Members can add a member living in the same household for an additional $60 per year. (Multi-year rates available.)
Armed citizens have a number of options for support after self defense. These include the Network's membership benefits, as well as competitors selling insurance, prepaid legal service plans and hybrids. Frequently callers ask how they can choose. While we can't speak to what other businesses do, we are happy to provide an indepth review of the Network’s membership benefits.
