The Red Book

Social Security's Red Book explains employment-related rules and programs associated with Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). It explains Work Incentives, like the Ticket to Work program, that can help you reach your work goals. This year, the Red Book also contains additional information and resources to help young adults as they transition to the workforce.
