Have You Experienced A Recent Life Changing Event?


A life changing event may have an impact on your pension and on the eligibility of your survivor(s) upon your death as an active or retired member.

It is important that you update your information with LAFPP when a major life event occurs, such as a marriage, the birth of a child, or a divorce. Updating your information may require official documentation, which may include:

  • Certified copies of marriage certificates
  • Birth certificates
  • Divorce decrees

Please review the Qualified Survivor Handbook for more information on survivor benefits.

Submit your documentation to LAFPP via email at pensions@lafpp.com.  For questions regarding dissolution of marriage or beneficiary designations, please contact the Active Member Services Section at (213) 279-3140 or via email at amssection@lafpp.com. For questions regarding survivor benefit eligibility, please contact the Disability Pensions Section at (213) 279-3165 or via email at disability@lafpp.com.
