Our yearly updates for the Red Book generally involve updating the dollar thresholds for several of the work incentives.  In this version of the publication, we provide direct links to the updated dollar amounts. This change will allow the Red Book to remain updated without having to print a yearly version.

In this version of the Red Book we have:

  • Provided links to the monetary adjustments for several of the work incentives.  Our policies are effective January 1 of every year. All updated information on Substantial Gainful Activity, Trial Work Period, Federal Benefit Rate, and Student-Earned Income Exclusion (SEIE) are available on our website at in the publication Working While Disabled: How We Can Help (Publication No. 05-10095).
