Before Age 60
If you perform work after your disability annuity begins and while you are still under age 60, full monthly payments will continue until it is determined that your disability has ended and you are no longer entitled to a disability annuity. However, your annuity is not payable for any month in which you work for a railroad employer, and you must return your annuity payment for that month to the RRB.
Your work and earnings will be evaluated to see if you are able to do regular work (see Part V, Item 7, for the definition of regular work). Also, any work performed after your disability annuity begins may raise a question about medical recovery (see Part V, Item 3, for the definition of medical recovery), regardless of the amount of your earnings. If this happens, you will be asked to provide additional information about your medical condition and we may request you to report for a medical examination.
After Age 60
If you perform work after age 60, your annuity is subject to the same earnings restrictions that apply to an aged widow(er)'s annuity. Your annuity payments may be withheld for any month during a year in which you are under full retirement age and estimate your earnings to exceed the annual exempt amount described in Form G-77, How Earnings Affect Payment of Survivor Annuities. In addition, your annuity is not payable for any month in which you work for a railroad employer, and you must return your annuity payment for that month to the RRB.
