Railroad Disability

Burnett & Driskill has qualified lawyers who can help disabled railroad workers nationwide obtain disability benefits from the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB). The RRB is part of the executive branch of the United States Government and is a separate system from the Social Security Administration. However, the two work together to coordinate earnings records, payments of benefits, taxes, paid, etc.

The claims process can include an initial application, reconsideration of a denied claim and a hearing if the claim is not approved. The hearing before a Hearing Officer is typically the best opportunity to have the claim approved. There are appellate options if the decision of the Hearing Officer is not favorable.

Contact Burnett & Driskill now to schedule a free, no obligation consultation to see if you qualify. There is no fee until you receive your benefits.
