Benefits

Insurance

All active LAAPOA members receive a paid City Employees Club of Los Angeles membership. The club connects City employees through a network of information and discounted products such as theme park and movie tickets. Members also have access to group-rated insurance products.

PORAC Insurance and Benefits Trust

LAAPOA members are granted free membership in the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC), which offers a number of insurance options and benefits.

Retiree Medical Trust

PORAC’s Retiree Medical Trust (RMT) is a health care pre-funding vehicle that is funded by defined contributions set in the labor agreement and provides a stream of monthly payments for life, for those who meet the eligibility rules.

Short- and Long-Term Life and AD&D Needs

Available through our membership in PORAC, these plans are administered by Myers, Stevenson & Toohey, which has countless years of serving its clients.

Long-Term-Care Plan

All active members receive the optional initial benefit amount of $1,000 per month in coverage from the City Employees Club of Los Angeles.

Banking

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.

Accounting

Since 1941, Miller, Kaplan, Arase & Co., LLP, has been committed to providing clients with the highest level of personal service and attention. So it only makes good sense to ensure that LAAPOA maintains an accurate account of its funds.

Investing

LAAPOA has partnered with UBS Financial Services, drawing on its 150-year heritage to serve private, institutional and corporate clients worldwide by combining wealth management, investment banking and asset management businesses to deliver superior financial advice and solutions. LAAPOA members have access to the UBS wealth management team to assist with any investment needs.

Communication

All members receive complimentary copies of the print BOLO newsletter, providing timely updates on law enforcement issues and association news. In addition, members receive, at no cost, the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) monthly publication, PORAC Law Enforcement News, which contains information on statewide legislative issues, reports from the Legal Defense Fund, member association news and career-related articles. Members also receive the award-winning, quarterly FOP Journal, which includes law-enforcement-related feature articles and updates on national FOP activity, lobbying efforts and federal legislation.
