Informational Conference Program

The U.S. Railroad Retirement Board's Informational Conference Program began in October 1957, over 50 years ago.  Sponsored by the Office of the Labor Member, these conferences are conducted at the request of the Chief Executives of the railway labor unions.  They are designed to provide local union officers with comprehensive information about the benefits available to members and their families under the railroad retirement and unemployment insurance systems.  By attending these conferences, union officers become better informed and better able to provide accurate and reliable information to their members.

A major part of the Informational Conference Program is a PowerPoint slide presentation examining the various benefits provided active, retired and disabled rail workers and their families and survivors.  You may view these presentation materials by selecting from the following topics:

Informational handouts and other helpful materials are provided to all Informational Conference attendees. The following are links to online and downloadable versions of this material:
