Getting Information on RRB Plans for Reproccessing 60/30 Cases
(Posted January 11, 2002)
Question 152: I retired in March 2001 on a reduced 60/30. I understand that I need to cancel that claim and reapply for the new full 60/30 benefit.
I can't seem to get any information from the local RRB office on when I can start the reapplication process. I last talked to the RRB on 12/27/01 and they told me that hadn't recieved final instructions from their Chicago headquarters. What should I do?
Answer: First read my answers to Q&As 143, 144, 145, 147, 148 and 149. They should give you a good overview of how the reapplication process will work.
I suggest you call the local RRB office again to see if final instruction are now available. If the RRB office still is not in position to tell you where and when you can begin the reapplication process, ask them to call you back when they are ready. Give them until February 1. Then call them again!
