Some active and retired railroaders do not realize that the Railroad Employees National Health and Welfare Plan may provide them with a life insurance benefit. Most employees know if they are provided with a life insurance policy while they are active employees. However, many railroad retirees do not realize that they may also be entitled to a different life insurance benefit under the plan.

If you have any questions about your entitlement to this life insurance, you should check with your union or Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (MetLife).
