social security is not impacted by other retirements. they are separate. Your military retirement will not affect or change your wife's retirement from the railroad. you will each have your own retirement and at age 62 or older you each will also have your own social security. however, your wife many not have any input to social security benefits if she has not paid into social security during her work span. best to check with social security to see where she stands with social security

They can but that person's Railroad Retirement is going to be reduced. Here is a link to the Railroad Retirement Board's website that explains all the details about Railroad Retirement and Social Security Benefits. The tier I portion of a railroad retirement annuity is based on both railroad retirement and nonrailroad social security credits acquired by an employee and reflects what social security would pay if railroad work were covered by social security. Tier I benefits are, therefore, reduced by the amount of any actual social security benefit paid on the basis of nonrailroad employment, in order to prevent a duplication of benefits based on the same earnings. .

Can you draw social security and railroad retirement benefits?

I worked for the Fed Govt for 35 yrs before that I worked and paid 48 quarters into Social Security, my wife worked for the Railroad and was covered by Railroad Retirement, we are now retired. My Social Security was reduced under the Windfall Elimination Clause of the Social Security Act. I was entitled to a portion of my wife's Railroad Retirement Benefits. The Railroad Retirement Board recently informed me that they were reducing my benefits because I have a Federal pension. This is a double hit, since my Social Security benefits have already been reduced by 45%? I have appealed this ruling and hope to have it reversed.
