BOND will test innovations to address the financial disincentives and other obstacles to increasing incomes and reducing dependence on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. The design to be tested replaces the SSDI "cash cliff," under which beneficiaries eventually lose all of their benefits if they earn over a minimal amount, with a "benefit ramp," a $1 reduction in benefits for each $2 earned above that minimal amount. The demonstration will also test the provision of more intensive counseling than offered under current law.
