Develop and process all R-HI claims for persons whose insured status is based on RR
service or entitlement to an RR annuity as if they were insured under title II.
Request confirmation of annuitant status or status of the spouse or parent (i.e.,
an RR microfiche or other acceptable record or statement) from the nearest RRB field
office. The RRB web site www.rrb.gov has a zip code finder for all RRB offices.
Request the claimant's earnings record if he/she is not the annuitant or insured RR
worker because the claimant's SSN is the one under which the R-HI claim is controlled
and entitlement established.
Follow the instructions in DI 11052.010 or DI 45001.020 for processing RR cases.
