Available through our membership in PORAC, these plans are administered by Myers, Stevenson & Toohey, which has countless years of serving its clients.
All active members receive the optional initial benefit amount of $1,000 per month in coverage from the City Employees Club of Los Angeles.
LAAPOA is partnered with several banks to offer the best service to its members, including Citibank and the Los Angeles Police Federal Credit Union. These full-service banks have been in business for years and have sound track records. Among the benefits offered are checking and savings, real estate loans, Internet banking, debt consolidation, direct deposit, low-interest credit cards and auto loans.
