It's railroad benefits, both parents have been deceased since Aug. 11, 2015, so am I do backpay?
Here is a government website about Railroad Retirement Benefits for deceased beneficiaries: https://www.rrb.gov/general/faq_rtd.asp . It was readily found on a search of "railroad retirement benefits on death." Be aware that only certain children are eligible for survivors' benefits.
