Emergency Assistance

During times of crisis, the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Emergency Assistance program provides financial assistance to eligible SAG-AFTRA performers and their families for basic expenses, including but not limited to rent, utilities and car insurance.

To be eligible, a SAG-AFTRA performer must be an active member for at least five years and have earned $15,000 over the last five years. Active members over the age of 55 who have earned $2000 per year for 10 years are eligible to apply. Members who are on Honorable Withdrawal who meet one of these eligibility requirements may apply.

Terminated, Suspended Payment or Fee-Paying-Non-Members are not eligible to apply.

The Emergency Assistance application process is completely confidential.

Emergency Assistance is made possible through gifts, grants and sponsorships. The Foundation never draws on SAG-AFTRA dues or initiation fees.

Give your support to the Emergency Assistance program.
