Encouraging Savings: How Hawaii and Illinois Eliminated Their TANF Asset Tests

Date: 
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

 

Public benefit programs, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), have historically included an asset limit. An asset limit prevents applicants with savings or other assets exceeding the limit from receiving assistance. Asset limits force families in need to spend their limited savings before they can qualify for assistance, leaving them vulnerable to financial emergencies and preventing them from moving along the path to financial security.
