LACERS will mail Retired Members their IRS Form 1099-R (Distribution from Pensions, Annuities, Retirement, etc.) by the end of January 2015. The 1099-Rs were mailed out on 01/22/15. Members and Beneficiaries who do not receive their 1099-Rs by February 15 should contact LACERS to request a new one. Regenerating a 1099-R may require a few working days to process.
If there is a dollar amount in "Box 5" of your 1099-R it is your pension contributions that were made on a post-tax basis and therefore, the amount stated is excluded from your taxable income for tax year 2014.
Also, Retirees who recently moved should contact LACERS to update their address information.
Change of Address Request form
is available from LACERS website.
