Dear Members,

We are proud to unveil a game-changing service spearheaded by SAG-AFTRA that will forever change how the entertainment industry gets paid.

Delivery of residual payments via direct deposit will finally become a reality in 2017. The program will begin with select payment partners and our eventual goal is to offer electronic processing of all residuals. This new service will not only add much-needed efficiency to the financial lives of performers who depend on these payments, but will also be another major step in SAG-AFTRA’s eco-friendly green initiative.
