The Louisiana Assessors' Retirement Fund was created in 1950. It is administered by a board of trustees as authorized under Louisiana R.S.11:1401. The president, vice president and treasurer of the Louisiana Assessors' Association also serve as officers of the Retirement Fund. Assessors and full time employees of assessors' offices are required to participate in the fund.
Retirement benefits are available for persons who meet the age eligibility and have earned the required years of service credit. Active employees who become disabled may qualify for benefits. Benefits are also provided for surviving spouses or designated beneficiaries and minor children.
