LACERS’ online Retirement Application Portal (RAP) is now
ready for eligible Members (those applying for a
Tier 1 Normal Service Retirement or a Tier 1 Early Service
Retirement) to use! This secure and convenient
application process is a one-stop-shop for applying for
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.
