Board of Administration


The Retirement Board has the sole and exclusive responsibility to administer the Plan for the purpose of providing benefits to Plan members and their beneficiaries, minimize Department contributions, and to defray the reasonable expenses of administration. The duty to Plan members and their beneficiaries takes precedence over all other duties.

The Retirement Board consists of seven members. Three are elected by active members of the Plan to represent the systems in the Department – Power, Water and Joint. Three are ex officio representatives consistent with their positions in the Department – General Manager, Chief Accounting Employee of the LADWP as designated by the Board of Water and Power Commissioners, and a member of the Board of Water and Power Commissioners. One member is a Retiree Representative, who is also appointed by the Board of Water and Power Commissioners.

The members serve as trustees and must act in the exclusive interest of Plan members and their beneficiaries.
