LACERS WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU!
All LACERS Members participating in our retiree health care plans at the age of 65 (or sooner if eligible for Medicare Insurance due to being disabled or have specific medical conditions)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 participate in one of our upcoming meetings, in our survey, and/or via public comment to our Board of Administration.
