Frequently Asked Questions: Benefits & Qualifying
What is the Social Security “Red Book”?
The Social Security Administration’s “Red Book” outlines the rules and regulations associated with working and employment and SSDI and SSI benefits.
If you do not follow these rules and regulations, you can lose your benefits – so it’s important to review it carefully. If you ever have any questions about the SSA’s policies regarding work or income while receiving benefits, referring to the Red Book can help you make the right decision. If you still have questions, you can always call the SSA or your disability advocate.
