|SAG Unclaimed Actor Royalties & Residuals - AFTRA & Coogan Payments|
|The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) is holding money for
thousands of performers whose residuals checks - royalties earned from
television and film performances - have gone unclaimed.
Residuals go unclaimed if an outdated address is on file, or if the legal beneficiary to a deceased performer's estate is unknown.► SAG processes over 1.5 million residuals payments annually, and because residuals are paid well into the future, keeping track of performers owed funds is a cumbersome task. A number of well known personalities are on the unclaimed residuals payment list.
► Other unclaimed payments owed performers are held by AFTRA - the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists; and The Actors Fund of America. Note if you were a minor appearing in a film or TV show, you may be entitled to special compensation under the Coogan Act; which requires that 15% of the earnings of minors rendering artistic or creative services be transferred to a special trust account.
