Even though your payments may be sent by direct deposit, notify both the RRB and the financial institution that receives your payment as soon as possible if your home address changes.
We need your home address to mail important information about RRB benefit increases, earnings allowances, Medicare, and your income tax statements. If you do not report your address changes, the RRB is not responsible for information you do not receive.
To report an address change, write or call the RRB and provide the following information:
- Your railroad retirement claim number;
- Your name;
- Your new address;
- Your old address;
- The date you will start receiving mail at the new address; and,
- If your spouse also receives an RRA annuity, a statement that your notice of change of address applies for both you and your spouse or applies to you alone.
