LACERA is offering as many in person appointments as safety and staffing allows. Currently, at mid-month, we open in person Member Service Center appointments for the entire next month. Virtual appointments are available for up to the next ninety days. On days when appointments are no longer available the appointment calendar is black. Days with available appointments is shown in white. Our knowledgeable Retirement Benefits Specialists are available between 7:00am and 5:30pm Monday thru Friday at 800-786-6464 to provide full retirement counseling.
LACERA’s highest priority is the health and well-being of our staff members and employees. We have a responsibility to each other, our staff members, and the greater community to help ensure good health, decrease the potential impact of COVID-19, and to help prevent its exposure to vulnerable populations.
Virtual Member Service Center: We are pleased to announce our new Virtual Member Service Center (VMSC)! The VMSC is an alternative to a face to face meeting in our office. Now, you can virtually meet face to face with a retirement specialist through your computer screen using Zoom. A retirement specialist will be able to share retirement documents with you through your computer screen, run retirement estimates, and help show you how to fill in documents. A retirement specialist will call you within 15 minutes before or after your appointment time.
To see if your computer meets the minimum system requirements, click on the following link https://support.goto.com/meeting/system-check.
The VMSC is a new feature and may not be right for everyone. If you do not want to set up a virtual session or your computer does not meet the system requirements, you may select the Telephone Counseling Appointment instead.
Member Service Center (In Person): LACERA’s highest priority is the health and well-being of our staff members and employees. We have a responsibility to each other, our staff members, and the greater community to help ensure good health, decrease the potential impact of COVID-19, and to help prevent its exposure to vulnerable populations. At this time, we require that all members and their guest wear a mask, during the in-person counseling session, regardless if you have been fully vaccinated. If you are unable to wear a mask for medical reason(s), please contact us for other available counseling options. Only one guest will be allowed to accompany you during your counseling session. Any other visitors will be required to wait in the Main Building Lobby.
Virtual Call Center: No need to book an appointment to speak to a retirement specialist. You can call (800) 786-6464 anytime Monday-Friday, 07:00AM-5:30PM, except holidays. A retirement specialist will be glad to assist you.
