Retirement Plan at-a-glance

The AFTRA Retirement Plan, together with Social Security and your personal savings, can provide a steady stream of income during your retirement years. The Retirement Plan is a defined benefit plan, meaning that your pension benefit is an annuity, or a fixed monthly amount. The value of your pension is based upon your career earnings and contributions we receive on your behalf for AFTRA-covered employment. 

The AFTRA Retirement Plan offers seven different annuities from which you may choose. The following pages provide an overview of your Retirement Plan options and other information to help you make the most of your benefits.
