Finding Attorney for Railroad Retirement Matters
(Posted March 30, 2009)
Question 690: I need a lawyer in the New Jersey area to represent me with the Railroad Retirement Board.
Answer: If you need an attorney to pursue a matter with the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB), I suggest that you contact the local bar association and ask for a referral. You also can check with your rail brotherhood representative to see if they have any recommendations.
In dealing with the RRB, you are not required to have an attorney. Sometimes using a brotherhood official or a Congressman or Senator can serve the same purpose.
