Bull-Bear Market

In 2019, U.S. stocks, as reflected by the S&P 500 Index, gained 28.9%.  This year we see the long-run bull market ending, much of it caused by recent global health concerns.  The enormous market volatility can and probably will continue for many months.  As such, you may have many concerns about its impact on LACERS.

Over the past week, LACERS has updated our processes to adhere to Mayor Garcetti and Governor Newsom’s Safer At Home order. This is for the benefit of all. While we have suspended office visits and changed how we do things, we remain focused on providing our Members with the best possible service and support during this time.

For this reason, LACERS has suspended public access to our offices from external visitors at this time. Please know that assistance is still available via telephone and email during our normal business hours, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., excluding holidays.
