Social Insurance for Railroad Workers provides comprehensive retirement-survivor and unemployment-sickness benefit programs for the nation’s railroad workers and their families. In connection with the retirement program, the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) has administrative responsibilities for certain social security benefits and railroad workers’ Medicare coverage.
In order to qualify for railroad retirement benefits, you must have been a railroad worker for at least 10 years, or for at least 5 years after 1995. Workers can receive full retirement benefits at age 60 with 30 years of service. The RRB also pays benefits to family members and survivors of railroad workers. In order to qualify for railroad unemployment or sickness benefits, an employee must have had earnings of at least $3,325 in 2011 or $3,412.50 in 2012.
