Question 984: How can I find out which railroad my father worked at?
Answer: You can ask the Railroad Retirement Board to check its records. You should include your father's complete name, Social Security Number and location where he worked. Also include his birth date and place of birth.
The Railroad Retirement Board charges $27 for the search. You should enclose a check for that amount. Send your request and check to:
U.S. Railroad Retirement Board
Congressional Inquire Section
844 North Rush Street
Chicago IL 60611
