LACERS welcomes our newest Commissioner to our Board of Administration, Mr. Gaylord “Rusty” Roten. Commissioner Roten will attend his first LACERS Board meeting on Tuesday, July 25, 2023. Join us in welcoming him to the LACERS Board!

To learn more about Commissioner Roten and the other members of the Board, please visit our Board Members webpage


All LACERS Members participating in our retiree health care plans beginning at the age of 65 are impacted by LACERS Medicare requirements, including paying for Part B premiums and, for some, the Federal required surcharges known as Income-Related Monthly Adjusted Amounts (“IRMAA”).

We’ve heard from our Membership that changes to the benefit are needed.

LACERS’ outreach effort aims to educate Members about how the City benefit, LACERS, and Federal requirements work and the process to recommend benefit changes. We are collecting feedback from Members and Stakeholders on this issue. Please visit our IRMAA webpage to learn more about what LACERS is doing and to participate in our survey and/or submit your public comment to our Board of Administration.


The achievements and contributions of our most mature people of the United States are profound. So much so that on August 21, 1988, the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, issued Proclamation 5847 proclaiming August 21 as National Senior Citizens Day.

Observing this special day may involve spending time with senior citizens you know or volunteering at a retirement home. If you are a senior citizen, check for special discounts and promotions that may be offered at stores and restaurants in your area. 

Finally, LACERS wishes to recognize the impact that our Retired Members have had on the Los Angeles Community within our great City. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do!  


The next meeting will be on Tuesday, July 25, at 10:00 a.m. Click here for more information.
