DGA-Producer Pension and Health Plans

One of the most important benefits the DGA provides to its members is the DGA-Producer Pension and Health Plans.

Created as a result of the Directors Guild of America's collective bargaining agreements with producer associations representing the motion picture, television and commercial production industries, the DGA-Producer Pension and Health Plans provide excellent benefits to participants, providing directors and their teams with a safety net that allows them to work as freelance artists and entrepreneurs in the entertainment industry.

The DGA-Producer Pension Plan was created in 1960, arising from the labor strife of the late 1950s over the reuse of films on television. The new pension plans were a major achievement for the Guild and showed great foresight, finally giving members a meaningful retirement plan.

The DGA-Producer Health Plan was added in 1969, filling another crucial gap in the benefits available to Guild members.

The Plans are separate entities from the DGA and are administered by a Board of Trustees made up of DGA representatives and Producers' representatives.
