Sworn Retirement Incentive Pay Program (RIP)
As part of the amended 2019-2024 MOU 22 and MOU 23, the Retirement Incentive Pay Program (RIP) was developed to allow sworn employees who are retiring or entering DROP between July 4, 2021 and December 31, 2022 to include deferred salary increases as part of their pension benefit calculation or to apply toward their accrued leave (sick/vacation/overtime) payout at the time of retirement. The RIP makes employees whole for the deferred base wage increase for those who are retiring or entering DROP during the deferral period.
Members retiring or entering DROP between July 4, 2021 and December 31, 2022 must submit an application to the Employee Relations Division of the City Administrative Officer (CAO) to participate in the RIP. The CAO is responsible for receiving and approving applications for the RIP and they have developed a website containing application documents and a document with frequently asked questions (FAQ) pertaining to the RIP.

Questions about the RIP may be directed to your union, or to CAO representatives via email at [email protected]. Do not call Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions staff.
