GN 03313.055 Disclosure to the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB)
We provide general instructions for disclosing information from our systems of records
to other Federal agencies and officials and a link to our systems of records and their
applicable routine uses in GN 03313.001. If you receive a request from RRB, please contact your regional Privacy Act Coordinator.
The RRB administers comprehensive retirement-survivor and unemployment-sickness programs
for the nation's railroad workers and their families, under the Railroad Retirement
and Railroad Unemployment Insurance Acts. These programs meet our criteria for income
maintenance and health maintenance programs. In connection with the retirement program,
the RRB has administrative responsibilities under the Social Security Act for certain
benefit payments and railroad workers' Medicare coverage. RRB also administers a representative
payee program for which we may disclose information to RRB.
We may disclose certain tax and non-tax return information to RRB to administer the
Railroad Retirement and Social Security Acts relating to railroad employment. For
more information about disclosures of tax return information without consent to RRB,
