VI. Benefit Cliff Calculator Partnership with Deloitte

Deloitte is providing pro bono consulting to United Way of Pennsylvania for the purpose of
developing an excel-based tool that case managers can use to help individuals and families served
by public benefit programs understand benefit eligibility. The initial pilot will be focused on
Lancaster County, and includes an evaluation to determine whether the tool should be deployed in
other counties. The goals of the project are to help build financially resilient families and
demystify benefit eligibility criteria and reduce the fear of losing public benefits, thereby
empowering benefit recipients to work. Brian Prendergrast of Deloitte will join to help provide
