Getting into the Screen Actor’s Guild can be a humbling and emotional experience for many actors. Most actors work really hard for many years to become established actors. For many actors, getting a SAG Card signifies that an actor has “arrived” and become a respected, professional actor.
The Screen Actor’s Guild was established to represent actors who perform in film. Like all actor’s unions, Screen Actor’s Guild, or SAG for short, protects actors from unfair treatment and ensures that actors receive fair and just compensation for their work. SAG is responsible for setting the minimum amount of money an actor should be paid, which is known as scale.

The Screen Actors Guild helps actors in a number of ways. In particular, SAG provides benefits and contractual representation, as well as other services that help actors further their careers.
