Greetings from LSERS'

Welcome to the November Edition of LSERS’ Employer eNews. We hope everyone had a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! We are interested in how helpful this eNews is to our recipients and have provided a Satisfaction survey link for your feedback. I encourage you to complete the survey so that we may better serve you in the future. Also, please note our Holiday office closure dates. I encourage you to contact our knowledgeable staff to assist you with any questions or concerns.

-Charles P. Bujol


Membership Eligibility

As in every industry, change is part of our environment and from time to time school systems must create new positions.  If the employee’s work is in student transportation, maintenance, or the custodial field, then they should be enrolled in LSERS.  
When a school system is in doubt, contact Chenfei Zhou, at  or 225.925.6492, for more information.


Photo Id Requirements

In our ongoing effort to protect member information and provide excellent customer service, we are now requesting members to present  valid photo identification to conduct
