What is CLA?
Certified LAGERS Administrator (CLA) is a certification given to you upon completed attendance at specified LAGERS educational events. It is voluntary and at no cost. Requirements must be completed within two years from enrollment, and then you must be re-certified every two years. You are responsible for tracking your own events using a checklist provided by us.

Does This Mean I Can Speak On Behalf Of LAGERS?
LAGERS has created the Certified LAGERS Administrator (CLA) program with the following goals:
• Educate CLAs about LAGERS benefits
• Enhance CLAs’ ability to assist LAGERS members in learning about and applying for LAGERS benefits
However, CLAs are not agents or employees of LAGERS and LAGERS will not be bound by information and advice provided to LAGERS members by CLAs. It does NOT mean LAGERS’ representatives will no longer visit with your employer or employees. We will continue to provide your employer with our services upon request.
