We have an existing web application with Security implemented for Internal and External user authentication and authorization.
We have been asked to work on upgrading the application for implementing Role membership provider model/wif.
As all the data structure already exists we need to continue using that. Our db is in Ingres and use AD and forms authentication for Internal and External users right now. Now we will have to write our own custom membership and custom Role provider.
So then what will be the benifit of using role membership provider here?

In a pair of words "Security Trimming."
If you have not used security trimming with your menus it is worth considering as you can make menu items available or unavailable based on role. It is a lot and I know from experience a lot less work than alternative ways of accoplishing something similar.
You can also control security based on roles.
Here is a link to get you started

Hope this helps.
