Stop, Look & Listen: Railroad Retirement Benefits Q&A

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Change of Address

(Posted March 1, 1998)

Question 10: Do I need a special form from the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board to change my address on their records? M. C. Baer Homestead, PA.


No, you do not have to use a special form to change you address on the U. S. Railroad Retirement Board's records. All you need to do is call or write to the nearest RRB office and report your new address. Be sure you include your full RRB Claim Number and name exactly as it appears on the RRB records. You can locate the nearest RRB office on the WEB(see answer to Question#9). It's very important that the RRB has your current address in their records even if your payments are sent directly to a bank or other financial institution. This way the RRB will be able to contact you when necessary, and you will recive important mailings throughout the year. Robert S. Kaufman
