Unemployment Benefits for Railroad Employees
Job Placement Service
The RRB operates a free job placement service with the primary purpose
of helping experienced railroad workers who have lost their jobs find
new employment. When you apply for unemployment benefits, you also
apply for employment service. You will be interviewed by an RRB
representative who will try to help you find new employment. You may
be referred by an RRB representative to a suitable railroad job;
otherwise, an effort will be made to place you in a non-railroad job
for which you are qualified.
The RRB maintains a list of
job vacancies reported by railroads to its
field offices. Information about job vacancies is available at all
offices of the RRB, and online at www.rrb.gov.
RRB Booklet UB-12, How to Find a Job, is available upon request from
any RRB office.
