RS 01602.205 Survivor Claims Transferred to the Social Security Administration (SSA) from the Railroad
Retirement Board (RRB)
When the RRB determines that SSA has jurisdiction of a survivor claim filed with the
RRB, the RRB will send all claims material to the SSA processing Center (PC) with
jurisdiction for the SSN involved.
Generally, we deem a RRB application as an application for title II benefits. If you
cannot deem the RRB application as an application for title II benefits, secure and
process a new SSA application with the current filing date. For more information on
applications filed with the RRB or with SSAs, see RS 01601.230.
