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.
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.
Watch the Planning for Retirement Tier 1 Videos Part 1 and Part 2 to understand your eligibility and benefits.
Register for upcoming Health and Retirement Counseling Webinars (more information below).
