Our purpose

The AFTRA Retirement Fund was founded more than 60 years ago to provide retirement benefits to performers working under American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (AFTRA) agreements. The AFTRA Retirement Fund administers pension benefits that help provide financial security to performers during retirement.

The AFTRA Retirement Fund recognizes the many challenges of the broadcast and entertainment industries, and we strive to meet the unique and diverse needs of the performers we serve. We’re committed to providing comprehensive, quality benefits, as well as a knowledgeable staff to deliver superior customer service in a courteous and professional manner. We partner with our participants to help them better understand and manage their benefits.
