The California Public Records Act
Occasionally, Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions (LAFPP)
receives requests from members of the public, websites and the
media for Plan information. Pursuant to (CPRA), we are required
to release information that is not legally exempt from
disclosure. These requests are routinely reviewed by the
City Attorney’s office to ensure the information being released
Examples of information commonly requested and eligible for release include: names of members, employing departments, pension and health subsidy amounts, tier membership and years of service.
Information exempt from disclosure includes: social security numbers, birthdates, addresses and phone numbers. Exempt information is never released to the public.
In response to a recent CPRA request, LAFPP has been advised that it must release information regarding all of its retired members, including their names, pension amounts, years of service, and retirement year. This information was provided to Transparent California and has been published on its website, www.transparentcalifornia.com, which has published information from many other public pension systems.
For questions concerning CPRA requests, please contact the Communications & Special Projects Section at (213) 978-4530.
