Transitions from AFDC to SSI Prior to Welfare Reform

Abstract

This paper examines the interaction between the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) programs in the "pre-welfare reform" period (1990 to 1996). The paper also discusses the potential impact of welfare reform on the interaction between SSI and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) (the program that replaced AFDC).
