Combat the “Holiday Blues” with an Upcoming Zoom Meeting

Please join us for our LACERS Zoom Meeting – Holiday Wellness Workshop: Understanding Holiday Blues. This Zoom meeting will feature Dr. Haydeh Fakhrabadi, Psy.D., CPII Clinical Psychologist with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. 

Holidays can be a challenging time for those who have suffered losses or who are feeling alone and without family or social support. This seasonal presentation discusses strategies to combat feelings of sadness or “the blues” during the winter holidays. The presentation will also provide a brief and general overview of the impact of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) on wellbeing.

Date: November 18, 2020

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., PST

Safeguard Your LACERS Information: Create a MyLACERS Account Today

Did you know that the simplest and perhaps most important thing you can do to protect your sensitive LACERS information is to set up your MyLACERS account? Get started today and request a PIN letter be mailed to you here. Once you’ve claimed your account, a “bad actor” can’t do it fraudulently on your behalf.

Other best practices to keep in mind to help protect your MyLACERS account are: 

  • Make sure you have a strong and unique password. Your password shouldn’t be predictable and should include unique characters, such as @, &, #, and *. Never reuse a password that you use to access another account, as it makes it easier for your account to be compromised. 

     
  • Choose strong security questions. You have control over the security questions linked to your MyLACERS account, so make sure to choose questions and answers that only you would know. Providing any answer—as long as you will be able to remember and provide the answer—ensures your account and its sensitive information stays secure.
     
  • Don’t wait to get help. If you have any questions, or if you suspect that your account has been compromised, please contact LACERS immediately for assistance.
