Supplemental Security Income Program and Welfare Reform
Lucie Schmidt (au)
OverŚć theŚć pastŚć 20Ść years,Ść theŚć SupplementalŚć SecurityŚć IncomeŚć ProgramŚć (SSI),Ść whichŚć providesŚćfederallyŚć fundedŚć incomeŚć supportŚć forŚć disabledŚć individuals,Ść hasŚć becomeŚć oneŚć ofŚć theŚć most important means-tested cash programs in the U.S. However, little research hasexaminedŚćtheŚćdeterminantsŚćofŚćgrowthŚćinŚćSSIŚćcaseloadsŚćacrossŚćstatesŚćandŚćoverŚćtime.ŚćThisŚćpaperŚćstudiesŚćwhatŚćfactorsŚćdetermineŚćSSIŚćdisabled case loads. The author examines the relative importance of a number of factors, including economic conditions, health conditions, relative program generosity, and state fiscal situations. She then examines the effect of welfare reform as well as the effect of variation across states in welfare policies. Given previous research that provides evidence of interactions between the SSI program and other welfare programs that provide income support to single-mother families, she also examines how the effects of the factors listed above have changed since the passage of major welfare reform in 1996. Results suggest that both economic conditions and welfare reform have significant effects on SSI participation and that the SSI program has become more responsive to business cycles since welfare reform.
