Railway jobs are on the decline

The golden age of the railroad may be long over in America's history, but that doesn't mean that the railroad does not perform a very important function in modern society. It is very valuable, if not in moving people across the country, in moving goods and materials. An incredible amount of freight crosses the lines in California every day.

Could a Facebook post result in an SSDI denial?

No one who's legitimately eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits wants people defrauding the Social Security Administration (SSA) and taking money that should be used for those who are truly ill or injured.

Who qualifies for Railroad Employee Retirement Benefits?

The Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) was formed in 1937 by the U.S. Congress. At the time it was created, the use of railways was overly popular in California and the pensions that private railroad companies offered were inadequate for the risks that workers in Whittier and other parts of the state faced. The expectation was that the RRB would operate similarly to how the Social Security program does.
