The economic uncertainty and long-term health risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic present a challenge nationally, and the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB), which administers railroad sickness and unemployment benefits, is advising all railroaders to establish an online login.gov account.
Establishing this account gives workers a head start in the event that RRB unemployment or sick benefits are needed by RR workers in the case of illness or unemployment.
Information needed to create the login.gov account includes:
• A current, state-issued ID;
• An email address;
• Enabling two-step authentication;
• Providing basic information such as name, address and phone number;
• Social Security number;
• Address verification.
Once the info is processed, a personal key will be provided to the worker that will be needed to gain access and make changes to the account. This key should be written down and stored in a safe place.
