General

We have renamed the Benefits Program from “My Flex” to “LAwell” to better demonstrate the ultimate purpose of all of our employee benefits: to support our employees’ and their families’ current and future health and wellbeing.

As a new hire, you will receive your LAwell Benefits Enrollment package 2-4 weeks after your first paycheck IF you are working a minimum number of qualifying hours (at least 40 hours per pay period for Full Time employees) and you are a contributing member to LACERS.

Once an offer is made, you have 60 days to make an election.
