RSLWA has established a new online Service Membership portal designed to help you manage your RSLWA Service Membership.

Now when you renew or sign-up for Service Membership through our website, you have the option to be transferred to an extension of the RSLWA website, a digital platform powered by OQEA.

The digital platform is protected by Azure, Australia’s most secure data centre, and is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by an experienced team of technical experts.

RSLWA’s online membership portal will enable you to:

  • Renew your Service Membership
  • Manage and update your details
  • Set communication preferences (including your Listening Post preference)

Once registered, you can access the service by entering the OQEA app from your desktop computer.

To access this new service you will need to first 'çlaim your account'. To get started click here for instructions.

Alternatively, you can download the Application for Service Membership form here.
