LACERA: Your Companion Throughout Your Career
From the day you enter the LACERA family, we provide you with a wealth of educational resources and service options.
From workshops explaining strategies for maximizing your retirement, to quarterly newsletters, to lacera.com, our online reservoir of all things LACERA — we stand with you as you navigate through your County career.
We offer a series of Outreach Workshops to educate and assist you in all stages of your career. New Member, Mid-Career, and Pre-Retirement Workshops provide valuable information regarding long-range retirement planning and offer the knowledge you can use to maximize your retirement benefit. Each registered Pre-Retirement Workshop attendee at LACERA receives a personalized Retirement Benefit Estimate. (Personalized estimates and one-on-one consultations are not available at offsite workshops.)
