Get The Facts About Financial Core

FI-CORE MEANS YOU ARE QUITTING SAG-AFTRA AND GIVING UP YOU SAG-AFTRA CARD AND MEMBERSHIP. GET THE FACTS ABOUT FINANCIAL CORE:

  • Turning Fi-Core means you become a Fee Paying Non-Member (FPNM).

  • Fi-Core/FPNM can NOT represent themselves as SAG-AFTRA members on headshots, resumes, electonic submissions or web sites.
  • In order to be considered for reinstatement into active membership, a FPNM would need to submit a petition for reinstatement that is granted approval. If approved, there are also financial obligations.
  • Fi-Core/FPNM are viewed as scabs or anti-union by SAG-AFTRA members, directors, and writers-most of whom also belong to entertainment unions.
  • Fi-Core/FPNM can't take advantage of member only benefits.
  • REMEMBER: If you are choosing financial core because you were asked to work on a non-union project, you're missing out on an opportunity for the union to organize the project for you and all SAG-AFTRA members.

  • We may be able to organize the project before you make a decision that could significantly affect your career.
