A little over a year ago, LAGERS deployed the Certified LAGERS Administrator (CLA) program to help educate those of you responsible for administration of the LAGERS at your subdivision. Topics include monthly reporting, understanding and communicating your LAGERS benefits, employer contribution rates, and much more! When we deployed this certification, we didn’t quite know what sort of interest we would have. Well, we have had a huge amount of interest and the enrollments keep coming in!

Interested in becoming a CLA?
As of today, we have received completed enrollment forms for 148 of you. If you are still on the fence about the program here is a testimony from a couple of our new recipients:
“I am proud to say that I am a Certified LAGERS Administrator and have enjoyed participating in the enrollment process. Notifications of upcoming webinar events made fulfilling the requirements needed for the program so easy to schedule and attend without traveling. I now feel confident to assist employees in situations that do not happen often, but most importantly to communicate the certainty of the benefits LAGERS provide. I am honored to add this to my credentials and recommend the CLA program to all plan administrators.”
Carla Davis, Treasurer -- Jackson County Public Water Supply
The CLA program offers framework and real life application of what you find in the Administrative Handbook. Since calendars fill quickly, the program is an easy way to keep on track and learn about all aspects of LAGERS. It enables you to be confident in speaking to stakeholders about retirement benefits and in making decisions regarding your employer's plan.
