Production

  • Step 4

    Working With Non-SAG-AFTRA Members

    If you are hiring a principal performer or background actor who is not yet a SAG-AFTRA member, you should submit the applicable Taft-Hartley Report to your Business Representative, along with a head shot and resume.

    Step 5

    During production, complete and submit the following to interactive@sagaftra.org:

    Delivery of each week’s payroll checks to the performers: Itemized checks made payable to each performer must be delivered within 12 business days after services have been rendered. (Please note, SAG-AFTRA strongly encourages production to engage an entertainment payroll house to process performers’ payroll.)

    Delivery of each week’s total Health and Retirement contributions: In addition to the payroll checks, you must deliver a check made payable to the SAG-AFTRA Health Plan in the amount of the total Health and Retirement contributions for the previous week’s payroll, accompanied by a completed Health Plan Weekly Report of Contributions.
