We want our retirees to have peace of mind regarding their LAGERS benefit during this time of uncertainty. Here are three important things to remember:
Normally, when thinking about a city administrator from Missouri, you don’t rush to the thought of a band rocking it in Isesaki, Japan. But, then again, perhaps Mike MacPherson isn’t your typical city administrator.
After a long-time career serving her community as a Juvenile Officer in St. Charles County, Patricia (Pat) Wahler took the retirement plunge and has forged a new path for herself. Her passion for writing has lead to an award-winning second career as an author.
Pat explains, “Although I’d previously had short pieces published in a number of venues, including the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, I wanted to devote more time to establishing myself as a full-time writer.” And that is exactly what she has done.
One of the most common questions members ask at Pre-Retirement Seminars is ‘what is the average cost of living adjustment LAGERS retirees receive each year?’

As former active members, many of you worked in positions that made our communities safer, cleaner and stronger. These roles were vital to ensure we have vibrant communities.

Wondering what you'll do in retirement? With LAGERS lifetime benefit, you'll have the foundation to dream big and live a stable, secure retirement. And perhaps have some fun along the way! One of our retirees, Dixie Gunnett, sent us some pictures of what retirement is like for her. She's been retired from Jefferson County Sheriff's Office since September of 2014 and has been busy living out the next chapter of her life her way. Here's her story in her own words, and pictures.
Pre-Retirement Seminar season 2019 is well underway here at LAGERS. We're traveling the state, coming to your area to educate and inform you on the process of retiring and receiving your LAGERS benefit. If you are within 5 years of retirement, we recommend you attend at least one before retirement rolls around. We asked those who attended our seminars how we did, and we came up with 3 reasons why you should attend a Pre-Retirement Seminar.
