Screen RRP (Income tab). For Medicare premiums, enter RRB-1099 box 11, Medicare Premium Total, in the field labeled Description of amount in box 3: Medicare premiums deducted from benefits on screen RRP.
Alternatively, enter box 5 amounts on screen 3, line 20a, in the field Net railroad Social Security equivalent Tier 1 benefits received for 2010. If box 5 amounts are entered on screen RRP and line 20a of screen 3, they are totaled on the return.

The U.S. Railroad Retirement Board explains:

"Form RRB-1099 reports the Social Security Equivalent Benefit (SSEB) portion of tier 1 and special guaranty benefits paid and repaid to citizens and/or residents of the United States, and the related U.S. Federal income tax withheld. SSEB payments are similar to social security benefits for U.S. Federal income tax purposes.

.... 

Form RRB-1099-R reports the taxable amounts paid, repaid, and the related U.S. Federal income tax withheld from, the Non-Social Security Equivalent Benefit (NSSEB) portion of the tier 1, tier 2, vested dual benefit (VDB), and supplemental annuity payments. These payments are treated as private pensions."
