Early Retirement Incentive Program (ERIP)



If you have submitted an ERIP Election Form, you will be notified on whether you have been approved for the program.  Due to the high number of election forms received, notification may take several weeks. For information about ERIP retirement processing, click here.


About ERIP
On October 30, 2009, ERIP was approved by the City Council and subsequently signed by the Mayor. ERIP is an early retirement window that was negotiated with bargaining units representing members of the Los Angeles City Employees’ Retirement System (“LACERS”). The program intends to reduce annual ongoing City payroll costs by providing incentives for eligible LACERS members to retire in the form of retirement benefit enhancements and/or separation pay incentives. The goal of the ERIP is to separate 2,400 employees from City service as quickly as possible.
