The Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) is an American Screen Actors Guild (created in 1933) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (created in 1952).[1]

As of January 2013, Variety reported that the merger had proceeded with "few bumps", amid shows of good will on both sides. The stickiest remaining problem was reported to be the merger of the two pension funds, in part as a way of dealing with the issue of performers who paid into each plan, yet did not quite earn enough under either of the old plans to qualify for a pension.[2]
