LACERS Retired Members June Update
Upcoming City Holidays: Mayor Eric Garcetti recently proclaimed Juneteenth an official City holiday. This year, LACERS will be closed on Monday, June 20, 2022 in observance of Juneteenth. LACERS will also be closed on Monday, July 4, 2022 in observance of Independence Day. LACERS office hours are Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. and Tuesday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. To experience the lowest call wait time, contact LACERS Tuesday through Thursday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.
Taking Steps Against Fraudulent Behavior: If you suspect fraud or are experiencing identity theft etc., contact LACERS so we can flag your account and take additional measures to safeguard your account. To protect yourself from fraud, the major credit agencies offer the ability to freeze your credit which prevents new credit accounts from being opened. Even if you do not suspect fraud or identity theft, it is a good idea to consider a credit freeze for the extra protection it brings. Learn more on our website.
