Xerox to Aid City of Los Angeles in Delivering Fire and Police Pensions, Benefits

NORWALK, Conn. —
The Los Angeles Fire and Police Pension System provides health and retirement benefits to more than 25,000 men and women in blue, who spend their careers and risk their lives protecting the City of Los Angeles. Over the next three years, CPAS, A Xerox Company, will work with Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions to streamline and improve its administration and record keeping operations, helping the city deliver more efficient member and retiree services.

With CPAS technology, police and fire retirees and members will have instant access to benefit statements, estimates, balances and payment information, with online access to documents, forms, and other vital communications. CPAS provides a single, comprehensive solution for defined benefit, defined contribution, and retirement savings plans as well as health, welfare, and group life insurance premiums.

“Pension plans look to maximize operational and technical efficiencies that improve member services while managing their operating costs,” said Don Hubicki, group president, Xerox State Government Services. “One area that pension plans can find cost savings today is by updating expensive legacy administration systems with state of the art web-based technology.”

“While the dream of retirement is in every worker’s future plan, it can be a stressful transition when the day comes. We wanted to make it easier for those who have helped to keep our city safe by improving their access to benefits and enhancing their service experience,” said Ray Ciranna, general manager, Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions. “By working with CPAS, we’re implementing a unified solution to better serve our members, retirees and their beneficiaries.”

Xerox currently employs nearly 5,000 people in California. In addition to providing pension technology to serve Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions’ 25,000 retirees and members, Xerox Public Sector Solutions provides statewide Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) services for California’s Department of Social Services, operates parking and transportation management programs in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and manages the call center for California’s Lifeline program and California Child Support State Disbursement Unit, among others.
