Railroad Disability Benefits Added to the Freedom Disability Mission
Here at Freedom Disability we take pride in listening to our customers.
For example, when veterans of the United States Armed Forces told us they needed help getting disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), we took action. I’m proud to say that, since 2010, our sister company Alpha, with its group of highly skilled VA-accredited veterans advocates, have successfully helped disabled veterans all across the country get the compensation they are entitled to from the VA.
Once again, I’m proud to say that Freedom Disability has added yet another advocacy service to our mission of helping people with disabilities. This service is for our nation’s disabled railroad workers.
Since the 1930s, men and women who helped build, maintain and operate our nation’s railroads have been covered under pension and disability systems administered by the Railroad Retirement Board in addition to benefits available to them through the Social Security Administration. Over 80,000 railroad workers throughout the country currently receive Railroad Disability benefits. However, many more disabled railroad employees are either eligible to apply, or are having difficulty in navigating the complexities of the Railroad Disability application process.
Freedom Disability and Alpha customers who are disabled railroad workers have told us about their frustration in finding quality national representation for the Railroad Disability benefits they are entitled to for their service. Now they can get the quality advocacy they need from our trained Freedom Disability Advocates who are experts at navigating the complex Railroad Disability application process.
If you are a disabled railroad worker, please ask us about our Railroad Disability advocacy service. We are excited and happy to help you get the Railroad Disability benefits you deserve.
Note: All representation coordinated by Alpha is provided by our employees, the Advocates, who are accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). No private organization that trains and employs accredited agents has been legally recognized by the VA for the purposes of preparation, presentation, and prosecution of claims. This work must be done by the Advocates themselves and not organizations.
