Emergency Assistance

During times of crisis, the SAG 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 SAG Foundation never draws on SAG-AFTRA dues or initiation fees.

Give your support to the Emergency Assistance program.
