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
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.
Prior to Accessing the RAP You Should:
90 days prior to your anticipated retirement
date call LACERS at (800) 779-8328 to notify us of your intent
to retire, request an official retirement benefit estimate and
to register for Retirement Counseling and Health Counseling
sessions. Your retirement estimate will provide your estimated
retirement allowance and other information that you will need
in order to complete your application in the portal.
