Railroad Retirement & Social Security
I am currently receiving railroad retirement. Can my wife file for RR spousal benefits at age 62 and then switch to her own social security benefits at her full retirement age 67 ?
Why can't I collect my Social Security & my ex late ex husband Railroad Pension at the same time??
I am 66 yrs & 2months old & will work till I am 70 yrs old.
He has a lot on money in his pension.
Also Why am I not getting his full benefits from his Railroad Pension since I am 66yrs & 2 months & just getting 50% from his Pension?
My husband, for 10 years, worked for CSX railroad, and then at a job he in which paid into Social Security for 27 years.
I did not pay enough into SS on my own, so collect as a spouse.
Railroad Retirement says if he dies, I will no longer get my benefits from RR, but through SS.
How does SS figure the amount? Equal, less?
Paid 17 years into Railroad Retirement from 1971 to 1987. Paid 29 years into Social Security from 1987 to 2016. Retired and started drawing Railroad Retirement at 63. Letting Social Security grow with delayed credits until 70 ( in about 2 years). My question is since social security takes the top 35 years of indexed earnings, will my years of railroad retirement payments be considered or will I have 6 years of zero earnings.
I want to change from receiving RRB Tier 1 and Tier 2, to receiving social security and Tier 2.
I'm concerned about the timing. Will I lose a month or more of payments because social security takes 2 months to pay from when I file my claim?
I have 25 years with the railroad. But before I came to the railroad I have 17 years with Social Security. Is it best that I draw my Social Security and then wait until I reach the age of 67 to get my full benefits from the Railroad RRB
Hi. My expertise is limited to Social Security (SS) benefits, not Railroad Retirement (RR) benefits. The extent of my knowledge about RR benefits is that if you claim both SS & RR benefits, the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) will offset your Tier 1 RR benefits dollar for dollar by the amount of your SS benefit.
I am recieving divorcee RRR can I still apply for my early retirement
I am spouse of Railroad employee who worked for 42 yrs on RR. He retired @ 60 with full retirement benefits. I have been collecting RR benefits since I turned 60. I am now applying for my social security (worked 32+yrs) as I am able to @ 66.2 mo. yrs old. My SS benefit is $803.00 more than what I am collecting from Tier I. from RRB. It was confusing with the SS rep (as never dealt with any one on RRB nor had her boss) when I applied because I am considered under the jurisdiction of RRB. They only need to certify the increase in benefits to RRB after I applied.
I worked 15 years on the railroad before receiving an occupational disability. I am am now eligible for social security retirement based on previous occupations prior to working for the railroad. I am also receiving a public service pension through Ohio Police and Fire. How do I recover my social security earnings?
