I'm SAG eligible, but not AFTRA. I've been planning to get my SAG card anyway. Do I get SAG, AFTRA or wait? by Q: AFTRA's less expensive, so if I join AFTRA now, would I be "grandfathered" into SAG-AFTRA with my SAG eligibility should the merger happen in March? Will the cost(s) to join the unions(s) be different before versus after? BASICALLY, when should I join and what should I join?

A: Get AFTRA now, it's cheaper and you will be grandfathered in. AFTRA is about $1,600 to join, if you wait it'll cost $3,000 to join the merged union. See the link for the merger docs. The bottom of page 11 covers the grandfathering into the merged union if you are AFTRA. Page 16 at the top shows the cost of the fee if you join later after it's merged. Save tons of money by going AFTRA.

Can I join AFTRA to grandfather me into SAG? by Q: If I join AFTRA can I get grandfathered into SAG once the merger happens? How big is my window to do this? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Should I join SAG/AFTRA? by Q: I'm a non-union actor and was wondering if I should join AFTRA just in case the merger with SAG happens. I've only done background work so far, and a lot of actors I work with say they wanna join the union to "climb the latter." I would like to do non-union films so I can work on having a reel. What shoul I do?

A: Don;t join until you absolutely must. Joining SAG means you can ~only~ work union productions, and puts you in competition with MUCH more experienced actors.

If I join AFTRA before the merger, will I become SAG? by Q: I am a non-union actor in NYC. I have just done some background/extra work and was told by some other actors that "i'd be stupid NOT to join AFTRA". They are about to have a merger with SAG sometime in the near future. Should I join AFTRA before the merger? -would it make me SAG as well - i heard they may put a freeze on joins when they merge and would make it harder to join. I don't have film or TV credits (with speaking roles anyway). I was always under the impression "dont join until you have to", but with the agreement now reached, i'm wondering if I should slide under the garage door before it closes. Thoughts?

SAG-AFTRA merger question? by Ahmad D Q: It is cheaper to join AFTRA in my local market of TX however i am planning on moving to LA in November, will i have to pay setup fees in the new market?
