Applying for Retirement
Applying for Retirement Online
Submit your application 60 days before your retirement date in our online portal.
LACERS’ online Retirement Application Portal (RAP) is the secure and convenient portal where eligible Members (those applying for a Tier 1 Normal Service Retirement or a Tier 1 Early Service Retirement) submit their retirement application.
While Tier 3 Members, Tier 1 Deferred Vested Retirement Members, and Tier 1 Enhanced Retirement Members cannot use the portal at this time, we are looking to offer this service in the future. For now, you can access the necessary retirement forms here.
Withdrawing or Amending an Application
Your application for retirement may be withdrawn from the Retirement Application Portal (RAP) up to, but no later than, midnight the day before your retirement effective date.
Please contact your assigned retirement counselor prior to your retirement effective date for options if an amendment to your application is needed.
If you become disabled while an active Member, you may be eligible for a Disability Retirement. Your disabling condition need not be job-related, but it must prevent you from performing your regular job duties. A Disability Retirement Allowance is generally paid as one-third of your Final Compensation. A Disability Retirement Allowance is not tax-free.
