MULTIPLE PROGRAM PARTICIPATION IN THE INCOME MAINTENANCE SYSTEM

Federal outlays for the income maintenance system increased from $28.5 billion in fiscal 1964 to $347 billion in fiscal 1983. This increase reflected the introduction of new programs, receipt of multiple benefits by many households, and higher benefit payments in response to inflation.

However, only a small percentage of households receive concurrently five or more income maintenance benefits.
