National Railroad Retirement Investment Trust
NRRIT Introduction

The information on this page was provided to the RRB by the National Railroad Retirement Investment Trust

The National Railroad Retirement Investment Trust (NRRIT, or "the Trust") was established pursuant to Section 105 of the Railroad Retirement and Survivor's Improvement Act of 2001 (the "Act") that was signed into law on December 21, 2001. The Act set February 1, 2002 as the date that the Trust was to become effective.

The sole purpose of the Trust is to manage and invest Railroad Retirement assets.  The Act authorizes the Trust to invest the assets of the Railroad Retirement Account in a diversified investment portfolio in the same manner as those of private sector retirement plans. Prior to the Act, investment of Railroad Retirement Account assets was limited to U.S. government securities.

The Trust has no powers or authority over the administration of the benefits under Railroad Retirement.  Responsibility for administering the railroad retirement program, including eligibility determinations and the calculation of beneficiary payments, remains with the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB).  The Trust is a tax-exempt entity independent from the federal government. It is domiciled in and subject to the laws of the District of Columbia.
