“Georgia's Center for Opportunity has developed a wonderful tool that makes it easy to understand how benefits cliffs create enormous disincentives to earn more money, particularly for low-income individuals and families. Its easy to use, interactive format allows users to plug in their own state and county, answer a few simple questions, and in seconds have a wealth of information at their fingertips... This tool is vital in understanding the specific income levels where benefits cliffs hit hardest. If used to improve existing policies, it could be one of the key devices that reshape the returns on work for those hard-working Americans at the bottom of the economic ladder.”
