Revise the sentence above title of paragraph numbered “4” to read:
“Follow up with your doctors in a couple of weeks to see if their reports are ready.”
(The sentence previously read, “to see if their reports have been furnished to SSA.”)
Disability Workbook, Page 32
Insert an Internet address at the end of paragraph titled “Protect any Retroactive Benefits.” http://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/cfr20/404/404-0621.htm
The Internet address makes easier to find the applicable rule online.
Disability Workbook, Page 86
Insert a new reference and Internet address at beginning of paragraph titled
“Q6. How do I start my disability claim?” The new reference is:
Title 20, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), §404.611, http://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/cfr20/404/404-0611.htm

Revise the section titled “Disability Involving Drug or Alcohol Addiction.”
We revised page 111 because after the previous printing the Social Security Administration (SSA) issued a new Social Security Ruling (SSR) 13-2p that rescinds and replaces the guidelines discussed in earlier printings.

We replaced 2012 earnings figures with 2013 figures in discussing earnings that may trigger a continuing disability review. See page 129 for a fuller discussion of Annual Adjustments Affecting Benefits.
