Record whether the claimant has worked or the work has changed since we last asked him or her about the work. If the claimant responds "yes" to question 8.A., prepare an SSA-820-BK or SSA-821-BK, whichever is appropriate. If the SSA-3441-BK is returned by mail with question 8.A. checked “yes”, obtain information on an SSA-820-BK or SSA-821-BK, preferably by direct personal contact or by telephone. Follow the instructions in DI 10505.035 (employment) and DI 10510.025 (self-employment) for processing the claim after completing development of work activity.
Use Section 8.B. to record if the claimant completed or enrolled in any type of GED classes, specialized job training, trade school, vocational school, or college classes since he or she last told us about education. Record the type, date(s) attended, and degree(s) attained, if any (and if attained, the date of attainment).
