What are Forms RRB-1099 and RRB-1099-R?

SOLVEDby TurboTax576Updated April 13, 2022

Instead of contributing to Social Security, railroad workers contribute to an independent retirement program administered by the RRB (Railroad Retirement Board).

RRB benefits payments are reported on one of two forms, depending on the type of payment:

  • Form RRB-1099 (Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board) is a blue form and reports Social Security equivalent benefits payments, which are entered in the same place as SSA-1099s
  • Form RRB-1099-R (Annuities or Pensions by the Railroad Retirement Board) is a green form and reports non-Social Security equivalent benefits payments, which are entered in the same place as 1099-Rs
