How long should I wait before I apply for Railroad Retirement Disability Benefits?

You should not wait to apply for Railroad Retirement board disability benefits because the longer you wait, the more difficult your case is going to be. Off the bat, if you think you're unable to return to your prior relevant work on the railroad or if you're younger and filing for Railroad Retirement board disability benefits, and you don't think there are any jobs you could otherwise do in the national economy, you should go down and immediately file for your benefits.
