SAG-AFTRA Health Benefits

Roster Artists

Covered roster artists signed exclusively to a contributing record label will qualify for coverage by meeting the covered earnings thresholds.

Those exclusive active roster artists with insufficient earnings from a label (that is signed to the Covered Roster Artists side letter agreement to the Sound Recordings Code) over the current and immediately preceding six‐month reporting periods may enroll in coverage for one year but will not earn an Extended Career Credit.

Similarly, newly signed roster artists to an exclusive recording agreement with a signatory label to the Covered Roster Artists side letter agreement who do not otherwise qualify for coverage based on earnings can qualify for one year of coverage under the Plan based on the special newly signed roster artist rules that existed under the AFTRA Health Plan. These roster artists will not earn an Extended Career Credit until they qualify based on earnings.
