|English term or phrase: TANF|
|How the FSS Escrow is Calculated|
If an FSS participant receives $400 per month in TANF benefits when she enters the program, and after completing a training program gets a job that pays $1000 per month (and causes her to lose her TANF benefits), 30 percent of the increased income (i.e., 30 percent of $600, which is $180) is deposited in the FSS escrow account each subsequent month. If the participant’s earnings increase again during the FSS contract, the escrow deposit will increase as well. For example, if her earnings increase to $1,200 per month, the escrow deposit will increase to $240 per month (i.e., 30 percent of $800, the difference between her initial income and her total earnings). If this participant worked for 18 months at the initial salary and three years at the increased rate of pay before completing her FSS contract, she would accumulate a total of $11,880 in her escrow account (18 months at $180 per month plus 36 months at $240 per month).

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families
TANF stands for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and it replaced AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children) on July 1, 1997. The focus is on transitional services, and so TANF requires most clients to work or participate in work-related activities and will limit the time that clients can receive benefits.
TANF was developed because Congress changed federal law, and because Illinois wanted to help people get off welfare instead of being trapped in it. With welfare reform, Illinois will not only treat all of its citizens with fairness, the state will go beyond the legal requirements to help people become as self-sufficient as possible. The major points include:
Help to clients in putting together a plan for a better life
Continuation of the Work Pays program which allows clients to begin work at any job while receiving a reduction of one dollar for every 3 dollars earned.
Cash assistance to help a person or family while preparing or searching for a job
Allow a family to save up to $3000 and to own one vehicle
Stipends/expenses related to a new job or the search of a job
Subsidized employment which requires work before the client can receive a check (for clients who cannot secure a job or quit a job)
60-month limit to benefits (including benefits from other states)
Not counting months against the time limit when the client has earnings from at least 25 hours of work per week (30 hours effective October 1, 1999). Two-parent families must work a total of 35 hours per week to receive this exemption.
Not counting months against the time limit when a single parent participating in an approved post-secondary program maintains a grade point average of 2.5 or higher.
