Hi,

My expertise is limited to Social Security benefits, and not Railroad Retirement (RR) benefits. I do know that the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) can use your Social Security covered earnings to calculate Tier 1 RR benefits, but I don't know if that would have any effect the benefits you receive. You'll probably need to direct your question to an RRB employee.
