The Railroad Retirement Board will conduct a genealogical scan of its records PROVIDED THAT the retiree is deceased.
Cost of this service is $27 whether or not they develop any information.
Address requests to:
Office of Public Affairs
Railroad Retirement Board
844 North Rush Street
Chicago, IL 60611
Including the retiree's social security number will be a big help, assuming they had one.
