LACERS 2023 1099-R FORMS HAVE BEEN MAILED
LACERS has completed its mailing of 1099-R tax forms to retirees and beneficiaries for the 2023 tax year. The 1099-Rs are only sent to the address on file with LACERS. Therefore, if you have recently moved or changed your address, please complete and submit a Change of Address form. If you have not received your 1099-R, the earliest that you may request a duplicate to be mailed to you is the second week of February. You may also view your 1099-R via your MyLACERS account beginning in February.
2023 TAX FORM 1095-B AND FORM 1095-C
Tax season is here and as you prepare to file this year, you may receive one or more forms providing information about the health care coverage that you had or were offered in 2023. Beginning mid to late January 2024, most retirees will receive a Form 1095-B, which is sent directly from either the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) or your health plan carrier through LACERS (i.e., Kaiser or Anthem Blue Cross). Some retirees may receive two Form 1095-Bs and a Form 1095-C (from the City) if they retired within the last year; one 1095-B will reflect the LACERS coverage and the other one along with the 1095-C will reflect the coverage provided by the City of Los Angeles while working.
Please do not contact LACERS if you do not receive your form(s). LACERS does not administer the 1095-B or 1095-C forms. You may request a duplicate directly from your health insurance carrier. For questions about using Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to file your taxes, please consult with your tax adviser or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
