California Department of Rehabilitation
The California Department of Rehabilitation works in partnership with consumers and other stakeholders to provide services and advocacy resulting in employment, independent living and equality for individuals with disabilities.
One of the Social Security Administration’s highest priorities is to support the efforts of disabled beneficiaries who want to work. The SSDI and SSI programs include a number of employment support provisions commonly referred to as work incentives. The Red Book is a general reference tool designed to provide a working knowledge of these provisions. It is written for educators, advocates, rehabilitation professionals, and counselors who serve persons with disabilities.
