03/29/2011, V. Robert DiPaola - Fund Administrator,  

The Sound Recording Special Payments Fund is proud to announce the re-launch of our website (! The website has been updated, improved and now has a more colorful and modern look. It was designed so the user could locate information about the Fund quickly and easily. For instance, the “About the Fund” section has been expanded to include the Fund’s mission statement, policy and rules, and important due dates. We also updated the Frequently Asked Questions “FAQ’s” and “Distribution” sections, which in addition to other items, now includes information on Sampling distributions.

For musicians and beneficiaries who believe the Fund may be holding unclaimed distribution(s) due them, please click on the “Money Owed Musicians (Distributions)” icon on the home page or the “Money Owed Musicians” link on any page.

If you’re not already a member of the site, I encourage you sign up and become one. Once your membership is activated, among other things, you will be able to review your prior years recording session wages-statements, designate a beneficiary and sign up for direct deposit (U.S. residents only)1.

We plan to continually improve the website so our members can access all the information and services they deserve. Once you have had an opportunity to explore the website, please send us your comments and suggestions.

Warmest regards,

V. Robert DiPaola

1For those of you that are Apple/Mac users we have corrected the limitation that prevented you from printing forms in the past, except for the prior years’ tax statements (i.e. W-2 , T4A), which we expect will be working shortly.
