R.r.b. Help

does anyone here have any experience dealing with the Railroad Retirement Board? i have been denied twice and now have to go to the hearing.
the problem is they sent me the medical that they were basing there denials off of and they say they never have had any medical from my treating physician.
what can i expect at the hearing? i am 31. that is another reason they say they keep denying me.

Re: R.r.b. Help

Could you get your own medical records and sent it to them yourself? I know a lot of people do that because sometimes the records disappear along the process. Make copies of your records first then send them. I don't have any experience on the Railroad Retirement Board , but it sounds really hard to qualify just like reg. S.S

Re: R.r.b. Help

I don't know anything about RRB either Mscat but it actually sounds harder to get than SSDI. I recall reading somewhere you must have at least 10 years (120 months) of creditable railroad service before you can even qualify for total disability benefits I think.

Re: R.r.b. Help

I believe the job you had was union represented -- If so, you may want to talk with the local. They likely have someone who is experienced with the contract regarding medical issues of their workers. Many locals do have a medical appointee/committee within the local structure, or a district structure who can assist the members.
