This chapter presents findings from the LBP Survey regarding how families came to be on the LBP and their experiences while on the LBP. These findings are based on descriptive analysis of survey data and quotes from survey respondents' replies to open-ended questions. The chapter highlights five issues relating to the LBP experience: (1) PROMISE JOBS requirements, particularly the FIA, (2) entering the LBP, (3) experiences after entering the LBP, (4) personal plans for leaving welfare, and (5) the loss of FIP benefits. It also presents messages from survey respondents to state politicians regarding the LBP.
