The WGAW maintains a searchable list of writers for whom we are holding foreign levies but have no current contact information. Most of the writers on the list have never been members of the Guild or worked under a WGA collective bargaining agreement. You may view the entire list or search for particular names by following the instructions below. Please contact us if:

  • Your name appears on the list.
  • You are the heir or beneficiary of a writer whose name appears on the list.
  • You have information about a writer whose name appears on the list.
  • You may provide us with this information by filing the online claim form and or calling the Foreign Levies Department at 323-782-4725.
