TANF-SSI Disability Transition Project Results, 2008-2013

The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) programs aim to support people with disabilities and help them become more independent.  However, the two programs have differing missions and organization, definitions of disability, operational and financial issues, and work rules and incentives, making it challenging for these programs to work together. 

In October 2008, we partnered with the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to launch the TANF-SSI Disability Transition Project (TSDTP) to gain a greater understanding about the relationship between the TANF and SSI populations and programs. Working with ACF, several State and local TANF agencies, and the evaluation firm MDRC, we analyzed program data and pilot-tested several program interventions for TANF clients with disabilities.  On December 31, 2013, the TSDTP concluded with several final reports detailing data analysis, program coordination, pilot-test observations, and options for a larger demonstration project.  You can view final TSDTP research reports at www.ssa.gov/disabilityresearch/completed_projects.htm
