RRB Releases Q&A on Acting for Impaired Railroad Retirement Beneficiaries

According to Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) policy, every annuitant has the right to manage his or her own benefits.  However, when physical or mental impairments make a railroad retirement annuitant incapable of properly handling benefit payments, or where the RRB determines that the interests of the annuitant so require, the agency can appoint a representative payee to act on the annuitant’s behalf.  A representative payee may be either a person or an organization selected by the RRB to receive benefits on behalf of an annuitant.
