Review the vocational evidence on the SSA-3368-BK (Disability Report – Adult) prior to sending the claimant an SSA-3369-BK (Work History Report) to obtain additional vocational evidence. If the information
in file is sufficient for a step 4 or 5 determination, or if the claimant is highly
likely to meet or equal a listed impairment at step 3 of sequential evaluation, do
not send the claimant an SSA-3369-BK to obtain additional vocational evidence.
If the claimant is homeless, the field office will obtain a completed SSA-3369-BK . See DI 11005.018B.2. If additional evidence is necessary, contact the claimant’s past employers or
others who may have knowledge of the claimant’s work history. Make special efforts
to get complete vocational documentation.
If the field office (FO) provides an EDCS SSA-3369, information entered into the Job
History section of the Electronic Disability Collect System (EDCS) SSA-3368 (Disability
Report – Adult) propagates into the EDCS SSA-3369 (Work History Report).
To prevent unnecessary development and potential inconsistencies among forms, you
must review the certified electronic folder (CEF) for the presence of the EDCS SSA-3369
before developing an additional SSA-3369-BK . If the EDCS SSA-3369 is in the CEF, review it for completeness and accuracy. For
information about the EDCS SSA-3369 (Work History Report), see DI 81020.020C.
