SAG's Residuals Department prides itself on processing members' residuals in the fastest and most efficient way possible.
Due to limited resources, however, SAG can no longer "expedite" residual checks—a process where the production information associated with the payment is mailed separately from the check.
As a result, effective immediately, the double mailing will cease. TV and theatrical residual payments will now be processed in a single mailing, with the payment and production information sent together. Members should expect to receive their residuals within 60 days from the date SAG receives the checks and producers’ information. Members are encouraged to track the status of their TV/Theatrical residuals by registering on the SAG website at www.sag.org.
Despite the challenges presented by limited resources, the Guild will strive to ensure that members receive their residual payments within the quickest possible timeframe.
