Profiles of Women Who Stay on Welfare More or Less Than Five Years

Open Publication PDF

WSIPP - June 1995

Proposals to limit the length of time a family could receive welfare (Aid to Families With Dependent Children--AFDC) have been made at both the federal and state levels. Limits of two and five years are most common. Although a time limit was not adopted in Washington State in 1995, the legislature passed E2SHB 2798 during the 1994 legislative session. When it goes into effect, this legislation will reduce a family’'s monthly AFDC check by 10 percent after the fourth year.
