dc.description.abstractThis paper reviews the evidence on welfare time limits in the United States. It primarily refersto experimental and econometric evaluations. Time limits affect welfare recipients bothbefore and after their limits are reached. Time limits reduce welfare receipt and increaseemployment before recipients reach the limit, as recipients "hoard" their months of eligibilityfor future use. Once recipients begin to exhaust their benefit entitlements, welfare use fallssharply. A large proportion of time-limit leavers, however, continues to receive Food Stamps,Medicaid, etc. The impact on employment is mixed. Income effects change from positive toneutral in subsequent periods.en_US
