1099-R Form

Overview

LACERS 1099-R MAILINGS

LACERS mails 1099-R tax documents to retirees and beneficiaries for the previous tax year on or before January 31 in accordance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules. Please note that 1099-Rs are only sent to the address on file with LACERS.

If you have recently moved or changed your address, update it with LACERS as soon as possible by submitting a Change of Address form.

Requests for Duplicate 1099-R

If you did not receive your 1099-R, the earliest you may request a duplicate 1099-R to be mailed to you is the second week of February. Also, you may view your 1099-R on your MyLACERS online account at your convenience.

TAX FORM 1095-B AND FORM 1095-C

Please be aware that you may receive one or more forms providing information about the health care coverage that you had or were offered in the previous year.

Most retirees will receive a Form 1095-B which is sent to them directly from either the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) or their health plan carrier through LACERS (i.e., Kaiser Permanente or Anthem Blue Cross). Some retirees may receive both a Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C if they retired within the last year; one will reflect their LACERS coverage and one their City of Los Angeles coverage while working.

Please do not contact LACERS if you do not receive your Form(s) as LACERS does not generate or have access to them. You may request a duplicate directly from your health insurance carrier.

For questions about using Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to file your taxes, please consult with your tax adviser or the IRS.
