LACERS: IRS Tax Forms Have Been Mailed


LACERS has mailed its 2923 1099-R tax forms to Retirees and beneficiaries. The 1099-Rs are sent only 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 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.

2023 Tax Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C

As you prepare to file taxes this year, you may receive one or more forms providing information about the healthcare coverage you had or were offered in 2023. Beginning mid to late January, most Retirees will receive a Form 1095-B sent directly from 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 your tax adviser or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
