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

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Impact of Worker's Bankruptcy

(Posted March 6, 2003)

Question 225: To what extent, if any, are Railroad Retirement benefits protected from creditors? Also, are Railroad Retirement benefits included in a worker's bankruptcy estate?

Answer: Your questions are of a legal nature and are well beyond the scope of either my expertise or the intent of this column.

If you are an attorney or an accountant, I suggest that you consult with the Bureau of Law at the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board, 844 North Rush Street, Chicago, IL 60611.


Important notice:

Answers are provided as general guidance on the subjects covered in the question and are not provided as legal advice to the questioner or to readers. Any legal issues should be reviewed by your legal counsel to apply the law to the particular facts of this and similar situations.

The law in this area changes frequently. Answers are believed to be correct as of the posting dates shown. The completeness or accuracy of a particular answer may be affected by changes in the law (statutes, regulations, rulings, court decisions, etc.) that occur after the date on which a particular Q&A is posted.
