Greetings everyone and hope you are having a wonderful start to this New Year of 2021! The stay at home orders due to COVID-19 put a wrinkle in many of our plans for 2020, but we hope to return to normalcy in the near future. Our thoughts are with all those who have passed away this past year and to those who lost friends or family members due to the pandemic. Our deepest condolences to each of you.
RLACEI is THE organization that looks out exclusively for the interests of retired employees of the City of Los Angeles, and we hope that you are currently a member. If not, please consider joining us. The strength of our organization comes from its members, together we are stronger and have a louder voice.
The coming year will be an exciting one for us as we track the actions of the City and pension systems as they make decisions on our pension and health funding, as well as health plans and subsidies. The actions they take are critical to us as they impact the health of our pension plans and directly affect the benefit levels of the health plans you earned in your City career. We continue to work in partnership with LACERS, who demonstrate over and over again their dedication and loyalty to us and the pension system members.
We are working this year to update our website to make it easier to navigate and more useful to you. Please send us your suggestions or comments. In addition, we continue working on a provision to give retirees who remarry after retirement an option to provide a pension for the new spouse. This is a cost neutral option that has been provided to members of the Fire and Police Pension System since 2009, and is now being provided to some members of LACERS as an enhanced benefit. We look to make this enhanced option available to all LACERS active and retired members.
Thank you for your membership, and please contact us if we can be of assistance to you.
