Default WGA question

Once you accrue the 24 units over three years required to join, do you then suddenly have to pay dues (1.5%) on everything you've earned over the last three years -- or are the dues levied only on projects going forward?

Great question. Call the WGA. They're great at picking up the phone (seriously)

Your dues should start with whichever project finally gains you membership.

Like the other poster said, call them. Although I'm in the WGC, I've always found the WGAw incredibly helpful.

Once you are a full member you report your earnings every quarter and then pay dues on whatever you made that quarter.
