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

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Can Disability Annuity Be Stopped If Condition Improves?

(Posted August 5, 2004)

Question 498: I already receive an Occupational Disability Annuity. Can it be stopped if my condition improves? Does my doctor make the decision?

Answer: If you return to work, or your doctor tells you that you are again able to work, notify your local RRB district office. They will ask for more information about your condition and possibly request new medical examinations. Failure to promptly contact the RRB about changes in your disability status could result in large annuity overpayments with penalties.

The final decision on disability questions is made by the RRB. They have medical consultants and specially trained staff who will review and evaluate your case.


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.
