REVIEW AND UPDATE YOUR DESIGNATED BENEFICIARIES
Designating a beneficiary is one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones. It provides a clear roadmap of your intentions, and in most cases, can eliminate unnecessary stress and worry for those left behind. If you don’t designate a beneficiary, your loved ones may be forced to acquire legal documents, which can be costly and result in significant delays in processing any payable survivor benefits. Once you have designated a beneficiary, it is important that you review and update your beneficiary information periodically, as your family situation may change over time.
If you are not sure whether or not you have a beneficiary form on file at LACERS, check your MyLACERS account or call the LACERS Member Service Center for assistance. You can also download the LACERS Designation of Beneficiary form from the LACERS website.
