Are you retired or planning to retire soon?
The Employees Club of California can assist you in making the retirement process seamless.
Hi I’m Noelle Kauffman, the Club’s Director of Sales with 12 years of insurance experience. We’ve set up this new page as a resource for you as you plan for retirement, or are living your best life in retirement already.
We’re here to support you!
If you have insurance plans with the Club, it is important that you speak with a Club Retiree Counselor to complete the correct paperwork to continue your deductions. The great news is that Club Membership for Retirees costs only $4 a month and can be conveniently deducted from your pension. As a Retiree, you are entitled to group rated insurance benefits such as life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment, long-term care, funeral pre-planning service, and our popular legal plan by MetLife.
Enjoy the most of your new beginning by allowing the Club to guide you through the retirement process. Make an appointment with our Retirement Specialists today!
Congratulations on your Retirement and be well!

Applying for Retirement Online
Members are encouraged to submit their retirement application 60 days before their retirement date when using LACERS’ new Retirement Application Portal (RAP). The RAP is a great asset to LACERS Members that helps to streamline the retirement process. While the filing period is within 30 to 60 days of your retirement date, starting your application early and submitting it on the first day you can at the 60-day-prior mark, will allow for a couple of benefits. These include having ample time to discover any complications and address them without having to move your retirement date, as well as ensuring LACERS staff has time to meet your retirement date request.
For example, if your desired retirement date is Aug. 27, 2022, you would aim to submit your retirement application in the portal on June 23, 2022. For more information, please visit lacers.org/applying-retirement.
