High Court decision may
raise state welfare rolls

LANSING (UPI) - A land-
6rk decision by the U.S.
upreme Court could put as
any as 36,000 more families
Michigan's welfare rolls at a
ast of up to $13.5 million per
onth, state officials estimate.
But, they said, most small
n d average - sized families
ould not stand to benefit un-
ss they were already on the
rink of financialruin.
THE COURT, in a unanimous
hing yesterday, said an unem-
oyed - parent m a ymreceive
ther employment compensa-
on or welfare and cannot be
rced to exhaust his unemploy-
ent benefits before applying
r welfare.
At the end of last December,
e last date or which the
ichigan Employment Security,
ommission has analyzed data,
bout 106,000 families with chil-
en were receiving unemploy-
ent compensation. Most, how-

ever, would not benefit by
switching to welfare,
Paul Allen, deputy director of
the Department of Social Serv
ices, said it will be at least 9o
days before the impact of the
decision is clear.
"IT COULD be as few as 4*0
are eligible, which would cost
about $1.5 million a month, or
as many as 36,000at $13.5 il-
lion," Allen said.
"At any rate, half will be paid
by the state and half by the
federal government."
The complicating factor, Allen
said, is that all persons eligible
for unemployment do not meet
welfare eligibility requirements.
"THE MAJOR thing is that
we have different standards
that a number of people might
not want to address themselves
to," he said.
"You have to look hard at
their resources. Pdople might
not want to lose their car, house
and other major possessions to
meet the eligibility require-
Another important factor, Al-
len said, is the family's senti-
ment toward accepting welfare
"IN SOME areas they won't
even think about it and in
others, they say, 'Well, my
neighbors are there on assist-
ance, and I don't want tO lose
Allen said the court's decisio
would benefit families with
many children and those which
have few resources.
"What the court is sayig is
that the option is there," Allen
said. "The public assistance op-
tion may not be nearly as favor-
able as continuing on unemploy-
ment benefits, however.
"IT APPEARS that the deci-
sion will benefit those with fess
prominent resources or large
families. If you have two cars
and a house and :dad loses his
job, then you've got a different

however, is not efective for
those who have received bene-
fits for more than 39 weeks.
