Los Angeles is proud to be a protector of the American Dream and a defender of the inclusive values that are the bedrock of this great country. Mayor Garcetti is a national leader in the movement to help create new pathways to citizenship for people who are American by every measure except the papers they hold — and who deserve job opportunities, better wages, the right to vote, and peace of mind that citizenship brings into people’s lives.

LACERS Open Enrollment Period Continues

LACERS Open Enrollment started on October 15, 2020 and will run until March 31, 2021. This year’s Open Enrollment period was extended to allow staff more time to process your requests while handling the increased workload associated with the City’s retirement incentive program. As mentioned in previous communications, LACERS will have up to three months to process your request and keep in mind that you cannot make another change for at least one year from your change’s effective date unless you have a qualifying event.
