Q. What if I don't receive an Earnings Statement?

A. If you have not yet registered with the AFTRA Retirement Fund, we cannot track your earnings and contributions or send you an Earnings Statement; visit our registration Web page, download a  Performer Registration Form and complete and return the form to AFTRA Retirement. If you have already registered but did not receive a statement, please call Participant Services at (800) 562-4690 to verify that the AFTRA Retirement Fund has your correct mailing address on file.

Q. What do I do if earnings or contributions for work I performed last year are missing from my statement?

A. Always contact the AFTRA Retirement Fund about any earnings or contributions which you feel should be included but do not appear on your statement. Please call Participant Services at (800) 562-4690 or send us a completed  Earnings Discrepancy Form along with the required documentation. Refer to the  Policies for Covered Earnings Inquiries brochure for details. One common reason earnings are excluded from statements is because earnings are reported late. Any earnings reported to the AFTRA Retirement Fund after March 31 each year will not appear on your previous year's Earnings Statement.

Q. What documentation should I send with my inquiry?

A. Please refer to the  Policies for Covered Earnings Inquiries brochure. This policy outlines the necessary documentation performers are required to supply to the AFTRA Retirement Fund in order to resolve earnings discrepancy issues when they believe that employers have failed to report or have underreported AFTRA-covered earnings to the AFTRA Retirement Fund.

Q. What if my statement lists covered work and earnings or contributions for which I never received payment?

A. Contact your SAG-AFTRA union representative and explain the situation. The representative will contact the signatory employer (the company signed to the AFTRA collective bargaining agreement for which you performed work) to attempt to resolve this issue.

Q. Where is my pension estimate, and how do I get one?

A. Please note that your Earnings Statement is not a benefit statement. If you are vested in the Retirement Fund pension plan and would like a personalized pension projection, or if you are not vested and would like to know how many years of vesting credit you have, please contact Participant Services at (800) 562-4690.
