One way to raise the living standards of the poor is for the government to supplement their incomes. The primary way the government does this \is through the welfare system. Welfare is a broad term that encompasses various government programs. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) is a program that assists families that have children but no adult able to support the family. In a typical family receiving such assistance, the father is absent, and the mother is at home raising small children. Another welfare program’ is Supplemental Security Income (SS!), which provides assistance to the poor who are sick or disabled, Note that for both of these welfare programs, a poor person cannot qualify for assistance simply by having a low income. He or she must also establish some additional “need,” such as small children or a disability.
