SSA for persons who have applied for benefits under the Railroad 
Retirement Act and a record of the amount of benefits paid by that 
agency to persons who are receiving or have applied for benefits under

4(a) and 4(f) of the Railroad Retirement Act (45 U.S.C. 231b(a), 45 
U.S.C. 231c(a) and 45 U.S.C. 231c(f)). The benefit information is

This information is not available from any other source.
    c. The SSA will receive from RRB earnings information on selected 
individuals. The transfer of information may be initiated either by RRB 
or by SSA. SSA needs this information to determine eligibility to 
Social Security benefits and, if eligibility is met, to determine the 
benefit amount payable. Section 18 of the Railroad Retirement Act (45 
U.S.C. 231q(2)) requires that earnings considered as compensation under 
the Railroad Retirement Act be considered as wages under the Social 
Security Act for the purposes of determining entitlement under the

service or has 10 or more years of service but does not have a current 
connection with the railroad industry at the time of his/her death.
    2. Weekly exchange: The SSA will receive from the RRB earnings 
information for all railroad employees. SSA will match the identifying 
information of the records furnished by the RRB against the identifying

Reappraisal Operation. This information is available from no other

make the necessary cost-of-living computation adjustments quickly and 
accurately for those RRB annuitants who are also SSA beneficiaries.

Railroad Retirement Act and current beneficiaries will have a record of
