Cost of Living Adjustment for 2018 NEW
Each year the LACERS Board of Administration determines a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for eligible LACERS Retired Members and beneficiaries. The COLA is a reflection of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the Los Angeles Area, which has been determined to be 2.8% for 2018. All Members who retired after June 30, 2017, will receive a COLA of 1/12th of the 2.8% for each full month of retirement completed by June 30, 2018. Members who retired prior to July 1, 1980, have a COLA “bank” and their COLA will be increased to 3.0%. The maximum COLA is set by the City of Los Angeles Administrative Code at 3.0% for Tier 1 Members.

The COLA will be included in all Members’ July 31, 2018, check or direct deposit.

New Medicare Cards Issued by CMS Coming Soon NEW
In an effort to prevent fraud and identity theft and protect essential program funding, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have taken steps to remove Social Security numbers from Medicare cards.  In April of 2018, CMS began to issue new cards to Medicare beneficiaries with randomly selected numbers called the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI).  The process of replacing Medicare cards is anticipated to be completed by April of 2019.

LACERS would like to remind Members and their dependents of the importance of having your updated Medicare information on file with us.  Upon receipt of your and/or your dependent’s new Medicare card, please be sure to send LACERS a copy.  You can provide LACERS with a copy of your new card in the following ways:
  • Email: LACERS.health@lacers.org
  • Fax: (213) 473-7284
  • Mail: P.O. Box 512218, Los Angeles, CA 90051  
  • In-Person: 202 W. First Street, Suite 500, Los Angeles, CA 90012-4401
