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?
Railroad Retirement & Social Security
My Father was told 15 years ago that if he took his railroad pension that he couldn't file for Social Security so he hasn't gotten any Social Security for the last 15 years and now they are telling him that they can't even find his Social Security Number on record. Is there anyone that can help us
I am receiving a windows pension from my deceased husband. I took his railroad pension because it was more than his S.S. I am now 62 can I receive my social security benefits also.
I am a spouse of a railroad retiree who had over 30 years of service. I am 64, and have paid into SS for 46 years, why can't I receive both retirement.
Hi. My expertise is limited to Social Security benefits, so you may want to direct your question to someone at the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) for a more thorough explanation.
I retired from the railroad and did contribute to ssi as well via other part-time work . I have contributed almost 23 years to ssi and currently although retired from railroad with pension am still working and have ssi deductions. I am also entitled to military retirement pay at 60. My question: If I accumulate 30 years of payment into SSI, will I then be entitled to receive payments ?
What about paying into SS after retirement from RR. I have contributed 20 years worth in SS as a private contractor. Can I file for that period of time separate of RR benifits ?
I retired from the railroad after 30 years of service in March 1 ,2000,In 2004 thru 2017 I earned 40 quarters in social security,My question is my railroad retirement pension should not affect any of my social security pension or vice versa since the 40 quarters was earned AFTER railroad retirement ? THANKS
I am currently 55 years of age . I have worked for the railroad and have 16 years of service. If I leave the railroad industry and take another job and retire at 62 , will I receive both railroad retirement and social security?
I reached full retirement age in Sept. I believe my Social Security retirement will be higher than the spousal Rail Road retirement I am getting from my Husband at this time. I understand I will continue to receive on Tier even if I get Social Security. Can my Husband apply for spousal benefits thru my social security account and continue to collect his Railroad Retirement benefits? Does his Railroad retirement reduce his social security spousal benefits? we are both over 66.
My husband worked for the railroad for over 40 years. He passed away in 2008. I get a check once a month. I have worked for over 50 years that paid into Social Security and I am now retired and wondered if I can collect my Social Security and still get the check from the railroad? Thank you!
I'm sorry for your loss.
