Step 1

One meeting with the volunteer organization or local government officials to select program rules. Discussions will include choice of type of program plan if necessary, entitlement age, length of service award, etc. Penflex will then prepare a draft summary of the proposed program rules based on this meeting.

Step 2

A second meeting will be held to prepare an outline of LOSAP service crediting. You can reduce fees here by establishing a LOSAP credit system on your own.

Step 3

A Penflex representative will explain the proposed LOSAP to volunteers at a highly recommended yet optional meeting.

Step 4

Penflex will then prepare a draft of the neccesary documents to be adopted by the sponsor. If required by state law, voter approval may be required.

Step 5

An optional public information meeting on the proposed LOSAP. Of the hundreds of programs the Penflex staff gave helped establish, less than 10 were not approved since 1990. Penflex recommends that a public information meeting be held if voter approval of a proposed program is required.

Step 6

Formal approval of the LOSAP. (May require an election.)

Step 7

Penflex drafts the required formal and legal plan documents.

Step 8

Penflex advises officials of their responsibilities in operation of the program.

Costs of LOSAP Programs

The total fee for the above services depends on how many steps are needed. One-time establishment fees range from $500 - $5,000.
