LAGERS has been monitoring the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in an effort to ensure we are proactively protecting the health and safety of our members and staff, and to ensure that our normal business operations and services to our members and retirees continue uninterrupted.
LAGERS has assembled a response team to ensure we are taking all necessary and responsible steps in ensuring the continued effective operation of your retirement system and remains committed to keeping our stakeholders informed of any forthcoming developments.
It is times like these when we are especially reminded of the importance of the work our members do. Missouri LAGERS represents nearly 70,000 working and retired local government employees including local health department workers, other public health and long-term care providers, emergency responders, as well as countless other local government workers from public administrators all the way down to local sanitation workers– these are the men and women on the front lines, working to ensure that every community in our state is a safe, healthy, and desirable place to live.
As our members continue their important work in serving their communities, LAGERS remains resolved in ensuring that the COVID-19 virus causes little to no disruption in our services, and our members and retirees should feel confident that their LAGERS retirement system remains strong and secure.
