Project Number: p04-01c

Transition Option(s) for Child SSI Recipients

Principal Investigators: Pamela Loprest and David Wittenburg

Project Type: Core Research

Project Year: 04

Thematic Category: Transition to Work

Project Summary:

The study examines the program participation and employment patterns of child SSI recipients prior to and immediately following their SSI benefit re-determination at age 18 using data from the National Survey of SSI Children and Families (NSCF). These new data provide a unique source of information on SSI children in this transition period and after re-determination. The study is comprised of two parts. First, the transition activities of child SSI recipients ages 14-17 are examined. Then, this initial analysis is extended to examine the outcomes of former child recipients, ages 18-25. This older group includes both those who continue SSI benefits and those who do not.
