Hello - my mother recently passed. She had worked for The Maryland Railroad in Port Deposit from 1966 - 1969. I have found her paystubs and they suggest there might be a retirement benefit available here. Where do I look?

Not here-this site is for those travelling in EURope on passes etc. As I am not-nor any of the others, from USA no idea about where to look.

Agreed, there won't be any help here. But I wonder whether anyone anywhere can help. Port Deposit was on the Pennsylvania Railroad and around those dates that merged with the New York Central to form Penn Central. And shortly afterwards Penn Central became one of the biggest bankruptcies in US history that came close to bringing down a large part of the US economy. I'd suggest finding a Facebook group for ex PRR or Penn Central workers, but it may just be for historic interest, I doubt many benefits will have survived.
