In my home state of PA, a family of six on straight welfare (TANF) receives $614/month in cash, plus food stamps (SNAP) and medicaid. A child on SSI (of which there are hundreds of thousands in my state alone) receives over $700. Some families may have 3 or 4 children on SSI and they all receive the $700+ per month. There is a HUGE incentive for parents to get their children on SSI (often called crazy money). This is in addition to adults trying to get SSI/SSDI. Where does it end???
