History and Governance

The Motion Picture Industry Pension and Health Plans are trust funds established by collective bargaining agreements between many of the unions and employers in the motion picture production industry. They are primarily supported by employer contributions, as provided by these agreements.

The Agreement establishing the Motion Picture Industry Health Plan was signed on October 20, 1952, and the Agreement establishing the Motion Picture Industry Pension Plan was signed on October 26, 1953 by various employers in the Motion Picture Industry and over 40 Unions and Guilds representing employees in the Motion Picture Industry.

Contributions are received from employers engaged in the production of motion pictures or engaged primarily in the business of furnishing materials or services for motion picture productions and which have entered into a collective bargaining agreement(s) with one or more participating unions.

Although maintained as two separate legal entities, beginning in 1990, the two Plans merged to form the Motion Picture Industry Pension & Health Plans.

The Plans are governed by separate Boards of Directors appointed in equal number by the participating unions and employers, and contributions, until necessary to pay insurance premiums or benefits, are invested with the advice of professional investment counsel.
