A Study of Recipients of Federal Supplemental Benefits and Special Unemployment Assistance. Final Report.
Corson, Walter; And Others
This is the final report of a study of approximately 12,000 recipients of Federal Supplemental Benefits (FSB) and Special Unemployment Assistance (SUA) during 1975. (The study, involving interviews with recipients in 15 States and analysis of administrative records from each State's Unemployment Insurance Service, was conducted in response to the Congressional mandate of P.L. 94-45 to examine the employment, economic, and demographic characteristics of FSB and SUA recipients; the needs of the long-term unemployed for training and employment services; the incidence of FSB and SUA recipients' eligibility for and receipt of transfer benefits; and the value of their unemployment compensation plus transfer benefits compared with income from their most recent job.) Following an executive summary and background information on the study (chapter 1), chapter 2 reports the employment, economic, and demographic characteristics of FSB and SUA recipients. Chapter 3 assesses their needs for training and employment services, and chapter 4 examines their eligibility for the receipt of transfer benefits. An analysis of wage-replacement ratios and labor market disincentives is presented in chapter 5, and chapter 6 uses the survey data to simulate the effect of alternative unemployment compensation policies on individuals drawing FSB or SUA benefits. Results of policy simulations are presented in eight tables. (SH)
