Despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, LACERS
continues to serve its Members and beneficiaries.
What are LACERS priorities during this pandemic?
Due to COVID-19, LACERS has suspended office visits and only
critical staff is working in the office. As a result,
LACERS has had to make certain adjustments in serving you.
Response times may be slower, but we are still working to ensure
that retirements and health plan enrollments are processed, and
benefits are paid out on time.
A managed retirement process has been implemented
All retirement applications and health plan enrollment
forms will be processed by mail, fax or email. If you have
scheduled your retirement, you will be contacted by LACERS with
instructions for submitting your retirement application and
required ancillary documentation.
We are still available to answer your questions and address
LACERS currently accepts inquiries by email and
telephone. Our goal is to respond to your questions as
quickly as possible, but no later than within two business
days. We ask for your patience and understanding during
this time. If your question is not urgent, we ask that you
consider contacting us at a later time or finding your answer on
our website. Also, you can find most of your retirement
benefit and health plan enrollment information in your MyLACERS
account. If you have not set up your account yet, you can do so
by clicking here: MyLACERS.

How is LACERS conducting retirement counseling?
Currently, LACERS is holding individual counseling sessions over
the phone while staff explores different ways to connect with and
serve the Members.
Staff estimates that it will take approximately 4 days to begin
processing and respond to retirement applications.
Thank you for your patience.
Further updates will be provided as they become available.
