Railroad disability benefits system often difficult to navigate

As a paid employee of a Connecticut railroad, you likely hope to enjoy a safe and long-lasting career. Since railroad work is among the most dangerous jobs in the nation, that may not always be possible, especially if an accident occurs that causes you injury. If you suffer any injury or illness that prevents you from being able to carry out your workplace duties, you may qualify for railroad disability benefits.  

Support available for those seeking railroad disability benefits

When a railroad worker in Connecticut suffers injury or illness on the job, he or she is sometimes able to return to the workplace after recuperating. During the period of recovery, it is often possible to obtain railroad disability benefits. These temporary benefits are meant to help workers make ends meet during time off while they're unable to carry out their duties on the job. 

Railroad disability benefits can help pay bills if you can't work

Whether you work on a Connecticut railroad as an engineer, conductor or lineman, or you have clerical position in an office, any number of problems may arise that render you incapable of carrying out your workplace duties. For instance, you may suffer an illness or injury on the job. Sometimes pregnancy complications or other health conditions can cause temporary disability among workers. Railroad disability benefits are meant to provide financial supplement to workers in such circumstances.
