Eligibility and Benefits
To be eligible to receive benefits from a LOSAP, an individual must be a bona fide volunteer.
A bona fide volunteer is someone who receives no compensation for the services and instead receives only reasonable reimbursement or nominal stipends. It is the responsibility of the participating entity to determine who qualifies as a bona fide volunteer and to develop a criteria for awarding LOSAP contributions.
LOSAP contributions, and any associated investment earnings, may be distributed to volunteers upon attainment of age 45 and completion of five years of eligible volunteer services or in the event of a death or disability.
