Repealing of Family Cap law

Family cap policy implies that monetary benefit and welfare allowance are not allowed to families or mothers after the birth of their second child.

Basically each and every family member is allotted to some sort of welfare benefits.

In fact, if a family has a child while they are on the receiving end of welfare benefits, there will be a moderate increase in the amount of welfare grant.

However, the year 1992 witnessed an alteration in this right in the city of New Jersey, with the implementation of family cap policy.

In accordance with the Federal law, for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the states can offer discretion to implement a family cap policy.

Since, years women have been restricted to gain monetary requirements and welfare benefits, in case they gave birth to new babies.

This has definitely been of turbulence to women, since, they have been required to limit the size of their family.

However, with the latest Government Jerry Brown offering support for the new rule being passed, better times are ahead.

As soon as the policy is redesigned, approximately 93,000 families will be benefitting from the same.
