LACERA Congratulates
Newly Elected And
Reelected Board Members

We recently became aware that some pension systems in California have reported that scammers have been making phone calls to their members saying they owe money to the fund. These scammers employ fear tactics, telling retirees they must send money through prepaid credit cards in order to receive their pension. LACERA has not had any reports from our members about this type of scam, but we feel you should be aware just in case you receive a similar call.


Should this happen to you, rest assured: Even if a caller claims to be from LACERA and the caller ID appears authentic, you can be confident it’s fraudulent because LACERA will never call to ask you for money. In the case of a legitimate overpayment (or underpayment), we will mail you a letter with details pertaining to your specific situation. Please call us at 800-786-6464 if you receive any suspicious communication.
