BMI writers and publishers should have received this email:
Dear BMI Songwriters, Composers and Publishers,
I hope this note finds you safe and well. While this is certainly a challenging time for the entire music community, we have been striving to ensure that your BMI service is as seamless as ever.
To that end, we are writing today with some good news. We are pleased to share that your upcoming June royalty payments will be distributed early, as we did with our March distribution. Rather than the originally scheduled date of June 19, we are planning the distribution a week earlier, on June 12. Please note, however, that only those who have signed up to receive BMI royalty payments via Direct Deposit will receive their distribution on this date. For others, checks will be mailed out on June 12. Keep in mind that mail delivery is taking longer than usual at this time, so there may be a longer wait time than usual for checks to arrive.
If you have not yet, we strongly encourage all BMI affiliates to sign up for Direct Deposit no later than May 22 to receive your early June distribution. Direct Deposit is a faster, more convenient and more secure way to receive your payments in general. Just log in to BMI’s Online Services with your username and password and select “Direct Deposit” from the menu. You can also sign up in BMI Mobile. Additional information is available here.
BMI is so proud to serve you, represent your outstanding work, and provide the royalties that help you to continue creating the world’s best music.
