About Us

The IATSE National Benefit Funds are trust funds established by the IATSE through collective bargaining with various entertainment industry employers. Generally, funding comes from contributing employers that are engaged in industries such as live theatre, motion picture, television, commercials, music videos, and trade shows and that have Collective Bargaining Agreements with IATSE or an affiliated local union.

The Funds are governed by Boards of Trustees made up of an equal number of representatives of the IATSE(labor) and the employers (management). The IATSE National Benefit Funds include the Pension, Annuity, Health & Welfare, and Vacation Funds. Employees and employers participate in one or more Funds, depending on the terms of their Collective Bargaining Agreement. For more information on a Fund, click on the specific Funds' SPD link below. Under each Fund, there are summaries of the plan rules, frequently asked questions, and forms that can be downloaded. You can also call the Fund Office directly at 1-800-456-FUND (3863).
