Filing For Disability Annuity
(Posted December 3, 2011)
Question 841: Must I inform my railroad employer before I can file for a disability annuity?
Answer: No! The Railroad Retirement Board will notify your last railroad employer after you file your application. They also will ask your employer to confirm the last day that you worked and whether your condition disqualifies you for further employment.
Answers are provided as general guidance on the subjects covered in the question and are not provided as legal advice
