Notify the nearest RRB office immediately if you change your address, even when your monthly annuity payments are going directly to your savings or checking account. All correspondence from the RRB is sent to your home mailing address on record. This mailing address is used to send any material other than your payments to you (such as notices of cost-of-living increases, Medicare information, new Annual Earnings Exempt Amounts, and tax statements). If you do not report your change of address, the RRB cannot be responsible for any important information that you do not receive.
A notice of change of address must always include:
- your RRB claim number;
- your name;
- your new address;
- your old address;
- the date you will start receiving mail at the new address, and;
- a statement that your notice of change of address applies for both you and the employee or applies to you alone.
