LACERS 1099-Rs to Be Mailed by the End of January NEW
LACERS will complete its mailing of 1099-R tax documents to retirees and beneficiaries by the end of January 2019. Please note that 1099-Rs are sent only to the address on file with LACERS. If you have changed your address or plan to, update your address as soon as possible by submitting a ‘Change of Address’ form that is accessible at www.LACERS.org/retired.

In the event that you do not receive your 1099-R, the earliest that you may request a duplicate 1099-R to be mailed to you is the second week of February. Also, you may view your 1099-R on your MyLACERS online portal account at your convenience beginning in February.

Basic Medicare Part B Premiums For 2019 NEW
For 2019, the standard basic Medicare Part B premium amount will be $135.50 per month (not including Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amounts (IRMAAs), and late enrollment penalties).  Note that the Part B deductible for Medicare will increase for 2019 to $185.00 per year.

Retired Members enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B who are enrolled in a LACERS medical plan or participate in the Medical Premium Reimbursement Program are eligible for a reimbursement of their basic Medicare Part B premium.  If your basic Medicare Part B premium amount (not including IRMAAs or penalties) is different than $135.50, you will need to submit proof of the amount to LACERS so that your reimbursement amount can be adjusted.

As proof, Members may submit a copy of their Social Security Administration Annual Notice of 2019 Benefit, Notice of Medicare Premium Payment Due (either the monthly or quarterly billing statement), or payment to Social Security or CMS for the Medicare Part B premium amount.  Surviving Spouses/Domestic Partners, health plan dependents, and Retirees with only Medicare Part B do not need to submit proof, since they do not qualify for the basic Medicare Part B reimbursement.

For more information on the 2019 Medicare Part B premium, please visit the Medicare website at www.medicare.gov.  To contact LACERS, please call (800) 779-8328 / TTY (888) 349-3996, email us at LACERS.health@lacers.org, or visit the LACERS’ website at www.LACERS.org/retired.
