The Department of Labor (DOL) has informed the Plans that it will be releasing several redacted documents in response to requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The documents being released are part of the DOL’s comprehensive multi-year audit of the Plans that was completed in 2016.
Every year, the SAG-Producers Pension Plan mails verification letters to all participants receiving pension benefits in order to verify that payments are being paid to the intended participants.
If you are currently receiving a pension, you will receive your letter in early July. Review the letter, confirm that your information is correct, then sign, date and return it to us by July 31st. If it isn’t, make all corrections directly on the letter before signing and returning.
