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

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Working After Retirement

(Posted March 5, 2013)

Question 977: I retired from the railroad in 2008 with 40 years service. I get a 60/30 annuity each month. I've been working a non-railroad job since July 2008. Are my earnings reported to the RRB by Social Security each year, or do I need to notify RRB? Also, will my Railroad Retirement annuity be increased due to payments into Social Security?

Answer: Social Security should report your earnings to the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) annually.

If your annual earnings are higher than any of the years used to compute Tier 1, the RRB will increase your annuity effective in January of the following year. The adjustment payment will be made during the following year and will be retroactive to January.
