RRB Amends 20 CFR Part 222 Family Relationships to Reflect a Change in Dependent Children Status to Cover Adopted Children Who are Dependent on the Employee
Jun 06, 2024


20 CFR Part 222

RIN 3220–AB79

Family Relationships

AGENCY: Railroad Retirement Board.

ACTION: Direct final rule; request for comments.

SUMMARY: The Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) amends its regulations to update who may qualify as an adopted child to be included in the computation of a railroad employee’s annuity amount under section 3(f)(2) of the Railroad Retirement Act. The current regulation requires that a child adopted after the employee begins receiving an annuity must both live with the employee and receive one-half support from employee. The amendment would eliminate this requirement for legally adopted children if the adoption proceedings commenced prior to the child attaining age 18. For adoption commenced after the child attains age18, the amendment would require only one of the above criteria to be met. This amendment is necessary to harmonize the RRB’s regulations with the requirements of section 202(d)(8)(D) of the Social Security Act and section3(f)(2) of the Railroad Retirement Act.
