Pension Benefits for Baltimore & Ohio RR Workers
(Posted July 7, 2000)
Question 55: What type of pension plan did Baltimore & Ohio RR workers have? Is there a way to trace Direct Deposit pension payments made to a widow between 1996 and 1999? Is there a local Baltimore & Ohio pension plan office we can contact?
Answer: Like all other American rail workers, those who worked for the Baltimore & Ohio RR were covered by the Railroad Retirement System, a Federal program administered by the United States Railraod Retirement Board (RRB).
The RRB is headquatered in Chicago but maintains full-time sevice at about 60 local offices throughout the country. You can find the nearest office to where you live by following the instructions in Q&A-9 of this column.
The RRB can give you information about Direct Deposit payments made to a widow if you have a good reason to get the information.
