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

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Problem With Severance Pay

(Posted June 6, 2007)

Question 627: I worked for the Union Railroad for 20 years. I was terminated but I didnot receive my severance pay. I now am 67 & receive Railroad Retirement. is is too late to do anything about the severance pay?

Answer: Your question involving severance pay is really beyond the scope of my column. The Union Railroad is now part of Transtar. Their address is 1200 Penn Avenue, Suite# 300, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.

I would suggest that you start by writing to Transtar. You may want to get a local union official to assist you. If there is a significant amount of money involved you may want to contact an attorney who specializes in employment issues.

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.
