How Can a Person with a Hearing Problem Contact the Railroad Retirement Board?
(Posted January 19, 2016)
Question 1241: I would like to know about applying for Divorce Spouse retirement benefits. I am researching both the Social Security and RR Retirement plans to determine which one better serves my situation. From what I can tell, I meet the qualifications. I was married for 13 years, am now single, and will be 65 this year. I have a hearing disability and am unable to communicate by phone, which is why I'm reaching out to you via e-mail. What can I do to apply?
The Railroad Retirement Board has a TTY phone number: (312) 751-4701.
