For over 50 years, Missouri LAGERS has helped middle class workers transition into middle class retirees. Dependable monthly income is essential for people to exit the workforce with dignity, and helps them maintain their standard of living throughout retirement.
LAGERS exists solely for the benefit of our members and the people who are dependent upon them. We take our responsibility seriously and strive to ensure the people who keep our communities going can depend on us. The security, flexibility, and portability of our benefits make LAGERS the preferred retirement plan for Missouri’s local governments.
We believe in the three legged stool approach to retirement security where the legs of the stool represent income from a pension, Social Security, and personal savings. As long as the stool has three legs it will be strong enough to support the person sitting on it. Take one of those legs away, and the stool becomes much less stable. LAGERS offers modest benefits that are designed to be combined with other sources of retirement income. This is the best way to achieve retirement security for all.
To provide and preserve retirement security for those dedicated to serving Missouri’s local communities.
Our vision is what we hope to achieve, our mission is why we exist and our values are the beliefs we hold dear.
