MyLAFPP – DROP Member Status
Members who entered DROP between October 2018-February 1, 2019
The City’s amendments to the DROP Program effective February 1, 2019, resulted in a record-high number of members applying to enter DROP from October 2018 until the end of January 2019. Nearly 400 members entered DROP during this 4-month period. This contrasts with the average of 36 members who entered the program during the same time period over the past three years. In addition, a pension administration system was implemented earlier this year and a new MyLAFPP was launched at the end of May. As a result, there are approximately 122 applications still in process.
Recent DROP enrollees may find the following variations of their status in MyLAFPP as their applications pass through the approval process:
- Active; OR
- DROP, without dates or balance information
- DROP, with dates but without balance information
- DROP, with dates and balance information (application complete)
The outstanding DROP applications are our top priority. We have implemented a plan and work schedule to process the files as expeditiously as possible according to your DROP Entry effective date. We anticipate completing the remaining pending applications over the next couple of months. As we finalize each application, a letter will be mailed with your DROP account information.
We thank you for your patience. In the meantime, if you have any questions about your account you may contact the DROP/Service Pensions Section at (213) 279-3100.
