Alaska Department of Insurance Notes Families of Railroad Retirees May Be Entitled to Benefit

March 25, 2004

According to the Alaska Insurance Department, survivors of retired railroad employees who died between 1964 and 2001 may be entitled to receive a $2,000.00 life insurance benefit.

Certain retired employees of participating railroads may have been covered under group life insurance policies issued to the Health and Welfare Plan of the Nation’s Railroads and the Railway Labor Organizations. The amount of the coverage is $2,000.00 per insured. The intended beneficiary may not have filed a claim for benefits, and thus no claim would have been processed.

Individuals who believe they may be eligible for benefits or have information regarding individuals who may be eligible, should contact MetLife’s Railroad Operations Center at 1-800-310-7770. Proof of eligibility (including proof of death) will be necessary to process each claim and MetLife will make all claim determinations. MetLife representatives will answer all questions and, if appropriate, assist individuals in filing a claim.
