U.S. Railroad Retirement Board (RRB)

The United States Railroad Retirement Board (RRB)

The U.S. Railroad Retirement Board handles sickness benefits, retirement applications, and disability and survivor annuities for employees of all railroads. The RRB requires proof of medical disability demonstrating the applicant's inability to perform railroad duties before benefits or a retirement can be granted. Often a formal hearing before an RRB officer is required. It can be very difficult to prove that a disability has prevented the applicant from performing his work without the assistance of an experienced attorney. This is especially true as the laws governing the RRB (revised in October, 1996) also govern eligibility for early Medicare benefits.
