REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC 
ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Board of Directors of Lazard Retirement Series, Inc. and 
the Shareholders of the Portfolios: 
In planning and performing our audits of the financial statements 
of Lazard Retirement Series, Inc. (the "Fund"), including the 
Lazard Retirement Emerging Markets Equity Portfolio, Lazard 
Retirement International Equity Portfolio, Lazard Retirement US 
Small-Mid Cap Equity Portfolio, and Lazard Retirement Global 
Dynamic Multi-Asset Portfolio as of and for the year ended 
December 31, 2020, in accordance with the standards of the 
Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) 
(PCAOB), we considered the Fund's internal control over 
financial reporting, including controls over safeguarding 
securities, as a basis for designing our auditing procedures for the 
purpose of expressing our opinion on the financial statements and 
to comply with the requirements of Form N-CEN, but not for the 
purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the 
Fund's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we 
express no such opinion.
The management of the Fund is responsible for establishing and 
maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting. In 
fulfilling this responsibility, estimates and judgments by 
management are required to assess the expected benefits and 
related costs of controls. A fund's internal control over financial 
reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance 
regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation 
of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with 
generally accepted accounting principles. A fund's internal 
control over financial reporting includes those policies and 
procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in 
reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and 
dispositions of the assets of the fund; (2) provide reasonable 
assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit 
preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally 
accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures 
of the fund are being made only in accordance with authorizations 
of management and directors of the fund; and (3) provide 
reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of 
unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of a fund's assets that 
could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial 
reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, 
projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are 
subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because 
of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with 
the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
A deficiency in internal control over financial reporting exists 
when the design or operation of a control does not allow 
management or employees, in the normal course of performing 
their assigned functions, to prevent or detect misstatements on a 
timely basis. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a 
combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial 
reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material 
misstatement of the fund's annual or interim financial statements 
will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.
Our consideration of the Fund's internal control over financial 
reporting was for the limited purpose described in the first 
paragraph and would not necessarily disclose all deficiencies in 
internal control that might be material weaknesses under 
standards established by the PCAOB. However, we noted no 
deficiencies in the Fund's internal control over financial reporting 
and its operation, including controls for safeguarding securities, 
that we consider to be a material weakness, as defined above, as 
of December 31, 2020.
This report is intended solely for the information and use of 
management and the Board of Directors of Lazard Retirement 
Series, Inc. and the Securities and Exchange Commission and is 
not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than 
these specified parties.
