As you prepare to file your taxes, here’s how to obtain your 2019 Tax Form 1099-R information:

To be mailed on January 31, 2020

A hard copy of your 1099-R tax form will be mailed to your address on file via US mail on January 31, 2020.  If you have questions regarding Form 1099-R, please review the Frequently Asked Questions on our website or contact the Accounting Section at (213) 279-3040 or (844) 88-LAFPP ext. 93040.

Some members may receive more than one 1099-R tax form in a year. Here are some of the possible reasons: 

  1. You exited DROP and received at least one monthly pension payment in the same year (one 1099-R for DROP, one 1099-R for monthly pension payments)
  2. You have a non-tax dependent covered on your LAFPP-subsidized health insurance plan (e.g., domestic partner or child of a domestic partner)
  3. Your IRS tax distribution code changed during the year (e.g., when member attains 59 ½ years old by June of the same year)
  4. You moved to a different state during the year
  5. You received pension payments based on your City service and from a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) or as a beneficiary
