Retiring Soon? LACERS Can Help

Retirement System offers resources to help you prepare.

The earlier you develop an understanding of your retirement benefits, the more prepared you’ll be to make good decisions and develop a plan for your financial future. So, whether you’re early in your City career or retirement is just around the corner, there are many resources available to help you learn about and prepare for retirement with LACERS.

LACERS staff is ready to help:


Attend a LACERS Planning for Retirement Webinar
With in-person events canceled until further notice, you can now attend informative virtual Webinars to learn about your benefits. Like past planning for retirement seminars, these virtual events will provide valuable information about the retirement process, retirement eligibility and calculations, medical and dental plan offerings, and much more.

To view a list of upcoming Webinar dates, visit and register to attend via your MyLACERS account.

Subscribe to the Official LACERS YouTube Channel
Can’t attend a Webinar but still want to learn about your LACERS benefits? Check out one of the many single-topic videos that cover all of your burning questions from “What’s the difference between service and service credit?” to “What survivor benefits are available to my family when I pass away?”. Learn from the comfort of your home or on the go – it’s never been more convenient! Make sure to subscribe to the LACERS YouTube channel to be the first to know when new videos are available.
