LACERS Services Update
Despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, LACERS continues to serve its Members and beneficiaries. However, due to reduced staffing, inquiries will be received through email and voicemail only. Our goal is to respond to your questions within two business days. However, based on day-to-day staffing levels, it may take longer. 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, www.LACERS.org. Also, you can find most of your retirement benefit and health plan enrollment information in your MyLACERS account. LACERS will continue to provide you and your families with the best service possible during these difficult times and will deliver all important updates on the LACERS website.
Added Security Feature Coming in May
A new feature is coming to your MyLACERS account that will ensure that your private information with LACERS is more secure than ever. Two-factor authentication is a widely used security tool that will add an extra layer of security to your MyLACERS account.
This feature will take effect in mid-May. When logging on to your MyLACERS account you will be automatically redirected to a page where you will be prompted to set up your two-factor verification preference before accessing the rest of the site. This is required, and you will not be able to proceed to your account information without setting up this feature.
In addition to using your username and password, two-factor authentication will also require you to provide a verification code to access your account which will be sent to you via email or text message. You will be prompted to provide this additional verification when: you login from a new or unrecognized device, forget your password, or forget your username.
If have any questions or need to request a PIN to create your MyLACERS account, please contact LACERS at email@example.com for assistance.
