The Board of Retirement (BOR) is responsible for the administration of the retirement system, retiree healthcare program, and the review and processing of disability retirement applications.
The BOR is composed of nine trustees and two alternates: four trustees and two alternates elected by members, four appointed by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, and one ex-officio by law. Of the elected trustees, two are elected by active general members; one regular and one alternate are elected by retired members; and one regular and one alternate are elected by safety members. Elected and appointed trustees serve three-year terms, and the law requires the County Treasurer and Tax Collector to serve as the ex-officio trustee. The Deputy County Treasurer and Tax Collector serves as the acting ex-officio member, sitting in for the ex-officio trustee as needed.
Trustees sit on three BOR Committees (Disability Procedures and Services; Insurance, Benefits, and Legislative; and Operations Oversight) and two joint committees (Audit and Joint Organizational Governance). The BOR committees review designated retirement-related information in order to provide insight and recommendations to the full board(s).
The election of officers and other matter relating to the administrative procedures of the BOR are provided in the BOR Regulations, BOR Charter, and other adopted policies.
