We have developed several handbooks for general public use. Please consult the table of contents in each handbook to find information about a particular topic.
a question-and-answer format about getting program benefits--retirement, survivor, disability, and supplemental security income (SSI) benefits
an in-depth guide to understanding SSI requirements
links to 27 fact sheets on specific SSI topics
a summary guide to employment support for people with disabilities under Social Security programs
Also known as "The Blue Book," this handbook has been specially prepared to provide physicians and other health professionals with an understanding of how each program works and what medical information we need to help ensure sound and prompt decisions on disability claims.
