If you've been working on the railroad all your livelong life, the US Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) will help take care of you after you retire. Serving railroad workers and their families in the US, the board manages retirement-survivor and unemployment-sickness benefit programs under the Railroad Retirement and Railroad Unemployment Insurance Acts. Annually, it administers more than $11 billion in retirement-survivor benefits to about 570,000 beneficiaries and nearly $90 million in unemployment-sickness benefits to some 26,000 claimants. Established in the 1930s, the RRB acts as an independent arm of the federal government's executive branch, with more than 50 field offices across the US.
