Your Pension Plan

This SPD is provided to help you understand and summarize the material provisions of the Plan, effective as of January 1, 2013 and thereafter, and it is applicable to benefits that have not begun to be paid by that date. For example, the SPD provides general information about eligibility and participation requirements, how to earn retirement benefits, vesting, forms of benefit payment, how to apply for a pension benefit, how to designate beneficiaries, as well as your rights and protections under the law. A Glossary of Terms appears at the end.

This SPD is only a summary of the benefits provided by the Producer-Writers Guild of America Pension Plan. It is subject to the provisions of the official Plan documents and cannot modify or affect the Plan documents in any way.

In case of any differences between this SPD and the official Plan documents, the official Plan documents will prevail. Neither you nor any of your beneficiaries shall earn (or lose) any rights because of any statement in, or omission from, this SPD. The provisions of the Plan documents cannot be modified or amended in any way by any statement or promise, written or oral, made by any person, including employees of the Administrative Office, the Union or any Employer. From time to time, however, the Directors may adopt Plan changes that amend the information included in this SPD. Plan changes and modifications that materially affect your Plan benefits are reported through Summary of Material Modifications ("SMM(s)"), which are distributed to Plan participants and are available at the Plan's website. To view this SPD along with all SMMs that modify it, please visit www.wgaplans.org.

Generally speaking, the pension benefits to which you are entitled are determined under the terms of the Plan in effect when you retire (or otherwise terminate covered employment), unless otherwise required by law. The Board (or its designated Committee) shall have full and absolute discretion and authority to determine questions concerning the interpretation or administration of this Plan, including, without limitation, all questions relating to eligibility for Plan benefits, and the determinations of the Board (or its designated Committee) shall be conclusive and binding as to all persons and for all purposes.



Any inquiries about your benefits or your rights and responsibilities should be directed to the Administrative Office at the following address. Any notice you are required to give the Plan should also be addressed to this office.
