Welcome to LASERS! As you work and make contributions to LASERS, you will accumulate service credit toward retirement eligibility as defined in the Member’s Guide to Retirement. Once you meet eligibility for retirement, you may retire and begin receiving a monthly benefit from LASERS, which is payable for life.

This section is designed to help you understand your LASERS membership. We encourage you to explore the information provided here and follow the steps outlined to familiarize yourself with important topics relevant to you as a LASERS member.

New to LASERS Checklist

myLASERS gives members the power to monitor their accounts and accomplish many tasks in a paperless capacity.

With myLASERS, you can:

  • View your membership history
  • Monitor your contributions
  • Track your retirement eligibility
  • Create a retirement benefit estimate
  • Upload important documents
  • Setup notifications, and much more!

It’s important to stay informed with LASERS throughout your career. We periodically email members about retirement legislation during legislative sessions, upcoming seminars, new initiatives, and other important and timely news.

LASERS seminars provide essential information to help you understand your membership plan for your future retirement. The Early-Career seminar introduces members to LASERS and the defined benefit retirement plan. This seminar is for LASERS members hired on or after January 1, 2011, but not within five years of retirement eligibility. We encourage registration for all new hires who meet the above requirements, especially those with no previous LASERS service.

Members Investing Now for Tomorrow (MINT) is designed to educate early-career LASERS members on the basics of our System and guide you toward a secure financial future.
