City’s Separation Incentive Program Payment Information

Approved Separation Incentive Program (SIP) retirees will be paid their first SIP payment no later than eight weeks after their actual retirement date from the City. The second SIP payment will be paid twelve months after their actual retirement date from the City.

SIP retirees will receive their payment via direct deposit or hard copy check:

  • If direct deposit, the payment will go to the payroll direct deposit account on file with the Controller. Please note: this may or may not be the same direct deposit information used for the retirement benefit from LACERS.
  • If receiving a hard copy check, the check will be sent to the employing department for the department to mail to the retiree.

LACERS is unable to assist with SIP questions or payments.

For questions regarding SIP payment direct deposit, contact the Controller’s Office at (213) 978-7200 or email controller.galperin@lacity.org.

For questions regarding the SIP, contact the office of the City’s Administrative Officer at (213) 978-7676 or submit your question here CAO Comments.
