Any earnings can have an effect on disability annuities.
Your Last Pre-Retirement Nonrailroad Employer (LPE) is defined as any nonrailroad individual, company, or institution for whom you are working on the date your employee annuity begins or for whom you stopped working in order to receive an employee age and service or disability annuity. (For more information, see Form G-177L General Information about Continuing in or Returning to Nonrailroad Employment after Retirement under the Railroad Retirement Act).
Any earnings can have an effect on disability annuities. For age and service annuities, any earnings after the date your annuity begins from your Last Pre-Retirement Nonrailroad Employer, at any age, may cause a work deduction to your supplemental annuity, your tier II component and the tier II component of your spouse.
The deduction is $1 for every $2 earned (subject to the maximum deduction of 50% of the employee and spouse tier II components and 50% of any supplemental annuity).
If you would like more information, please contact the nearest RRB field office.
Please review Booklet RB-1 Employee Age and Service Annuities or Booklet RB-1D Employee Disability Benefits before you come in to file for your annuity.
