Supreme Court Denies Writs 

On September 19, 2014 the Supreme Court of the State of Louisiana denied writs requested by 47 school systems in the EBR et al v. LSERS suit which was filed in 2005. 
 
This ruling brings the case to a conclusion favorable to LSERS holding that the mechanism through which employer contributions are funded within the MFP is constitutional.

After DROP Enrollments Now Available Online

Employers can now use the online Enrollment form to re-enroll members who complete their DROP participation and work at least 30 days after completing DROP.  According to state law, LSERS members must work at least 30 days before employers can re-enroll the member into LSERS.  Once the member works 30 days, an enrollment can be processed  reflecting the date after their DROP end date.  If you have any questions about re-enrolling DROP members, contact Carolyn Forbes at 225.925.6490 or cforbes@lsers.net.
