Scarlett, 33 and a three-time premiership hero, automatically qualified for AFL life membership by playing a total of more than 300 games including 284 with the Cats and his NAB Cup and International Rules appearances.
And long-serving West Coast chief executive Trevor Nisbett will be awarded membership under a "special service to the game" provision.
Nisbett started his lengthy service with West Coast back in 1989 as football manager when the Eagles recruited now highly-coveted coach Mick Malthouse.
Nisbett relinquished his football operations role in late 1999, to become West Coast's chief executive, after two historic premierships alongside Malthouse in 1992 and '94.
Scarlett retired quietly at the end of the 2012 season.
The champion fullback joins three coaches who also ticked over 300 games played and coached in Gold Coast mentor Guy McKenna, Fremantle coach Ross Lyon and hard-nosed Richmond coach Damien Hardwick.
Dockers captain Matthew Pavlich also notched a total of 300 games during the 2012 season, including amassing 279 appearances for Fremantle over 13 seasons.
The AFL announced on Monday it will award life membership to eight players, coaches and administrators at the Annual General Meeting in March.
The special provision will also allow former Collingwood player and president Kevin Rose to be inducted, along with Richmond Team of the Century member Michael Green.
