Guaranteed Income

Guaranteed income provides direct, recurring cash assistance to individuals or households with no conditions or restrictions. Similar in concept to universal basic income (UBI), guaranteed income is targeted rather than provided to everyone in a community, and has a long history in the U.S. and internationally. Interest in guaranteed income has surged due to the economic crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as greater urgency to address structural racism and violence. Guaranteed income is: accessible and dignified; effective at moving individuals and families out of poverty; efficient; rooted in ideas of abundance, dignity, empowerment; and proven to work. San Francisco convened a Guaranteed Income Advisory Group that was established to advise City leaders various aspects of Guaranteed Income.

Get started: Learn about guaranteed income and the local landscape.


Numerous organizations have already published informative guaranteed income guides or toolkits; practitioners should make sure to consult these excellent resources, several of which you can find below.

There are local, national and statewide communities of practice where practitioners gather to share best practices, raise and answer questions, and present research. If you are a practitioner or policymaker considering a guaranteed income pilot, get connected with these communities – the San Francisco Office of Financial Empowerment (OFE), which convenes the Bay Area group, can assist you (contact for more information).

Reach out to Chiamaka Ogwuegbu, Racial Equity Policy Advisor, Office of Mayor London Breed, and Amanda Fried, Chief of Policy and Communications, Office of the Treasurer and Tax Collector. Chiamaka, Amanda, and their teams can help walk through things like:

  • Program design considerations
  • Nonprofit partnerships and contracting
  • Facilitating connections with other pilots, public agencies, nonprofits, evaluators and funders
  • Getting help understanding benefits protection strategies and distribution channels
  • Connecting participants to supportive services like financial coaching and legal assistance 
Image removed.Design your program and raise money.

Any pilot will need to grapple with a whole host of questions and address them early in the process to ensure the pilot design is viable. These crucial questions include: Who is the target population? How much funding can we secure? How will that impact pilot design? Will local or state government be involved, and how? Who will we collaborate with? What is the timeline? Do we have a theory of change? 

The size and scope of pilot budgets can vary widely, but pilots should consider costs like project development (including community research), project management, onboarding and benefits counseling, evaluation, and (of course), the payments themselves. Timelines are also dependent on multiple factors; some small pilots have been able to very quickly move from concept to disbursement, but a more likely path for pilots will require anywhere from six months to two years or more to raise money, do community planning, develop a research design, apply for any benefits waivers, and finalize a process to disburse the money, among other tasks.

Local pilots have typically been funded by philanthropic grants, but San Francisco is among the cities leading the way in starting to allocate public dollars (sometimes using federal American Rescue Plan Act or CARES funding).  Read more about the use of public funds for guaranteed income programs here, or see Jain Family Institute’s Toolkit for several examples (p. 19-20) that break down potential costs, including analysis performed for Newark and Atlanta guaranteed income task forces. California’s 2021-22 budget included funding to establish a Guaranteed Income Pilot Program, which will provide up to $35 million in grant funding to pilots in the state and emphasize pregnancy and foster youth.

One of the questions that comes up most frequently among practitioners developing new pilots is how to protect the public benefits of people who receive cash transfers. The amount of money provided by current pilots is not sufficient for participants to live on, so many low-income recipients will continue to depend on public benefit programs to help bridge the gap. For a more in-depth discussion of protecting benefits, see:

Image removed.Figure out how to distribute payments.

To distribute payments, pilots are typically concerned with addressing two key questions: who distributes the money, and how? Key considerations that come up when solving for these questions include administrative efficiency, accessibility for participants, safety and affordability of financial products, research data, participant preference and accounting, reconciliation, and compliance needs. Below we outline distribution issues for nonprofits as well as City departments interested in doing direct cash transfers and provide a discussion of opportunities and best practices around cash disbursements.

Most pilots disburse money electronically. Paper checks, while possible, are not recommended due to the high cost of check cashing and risk of loss or fraud. Paying people in cash is rare and comes with similar risks (as well as a larger administrative headache). Generally, electronic transfers are considered the gold standard because they are cheaper, faster, more effective, and safer. So, the question of “how” boils down to whether to distribute by direct deposit to a bank account or by loading cash onto a prepaid card (or some blend of the two).

A safe and affordable bank account is a foundational element to asset-building and financial security. Without one, it is harder to save and to get well-priced car loans, credit cards, or mortgages – the exact financial tools needed to climb the economic ladder. Families without access to a bank account are stuck with costly alternatives – like check cashers, pawn shops and rent-to-own stores. San Francisco’s Office of Financial Empowerment (OFE) has pioneered banking access programs and strategies, including the Bank On San Francisco program that has helped tens of thousands of San Franciscans open a bank account over the past 15 years.

However, not all cash transfer recipients may have easy access to a bank account due to persistent barriers to banking that include lack of social security number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), debts that would cause an account to be levied, and negative banking (i.e., ChexSystems or Early Warning Services) records that systematically exclude people from the mainstream banking system. Finally, overdraft and other fees, lack of transparency, and distrust are all important reasons why many people remain unbanked.

Systemic racism in the banking system has resulted in hugely disparate access to mainstream banking for Black and Latinx households, as highlighted in OFE’s recent research and reports. OFE, through Bank On and its Smart Money Coaching program, can help people open safe and affordable accounts, but also understands that not everyone chooses to open a bank account, and these are often very rational decisions.

Prepaid debit cards are the other primary option utilized as a cash transfer vehicle. Long seen as a second-best option, prepaid products have evolved and improved over the past ten years, so much so that the line between a bank account and a prepaid card is often blurry. Prepaid cards may offer certain benefits that make them more accessible or preferable for participants, including no credit or ChexSystems review requirement, no monthly fees, and no penalty fees for overdrafts or bounced checks. Prepaid cards also can reduce administrative burden and offer data on card usage for research purposes. However, not all prepaid cards are created equal. Some have high fees or limited features; some are non-reloadable, and some can only receive deposits from a single source, limiting their use for participants moving forward.

Across the U.S., guaranteed income pilots have tended more toward the use of prepaid cards than direct deposit to bank accounts, although it is too soon to predict a dominant long-term trend. There are at least a few pilots that solely use direct deposit to a bank account – for example, the Magnolia Mother’s Trust worked with Hope Federal Credit union to open bank accounts with no fees for participants and San Francisco’s Miracle Money pilot worked with OFE’s Smart Money Coaching program to get all participants access to a bank account. Others utilize payment platforms that allow for choice of between direct deposit to a bank account, distribution via prepaid card, or other alternative.

Pilots considering using prepaid cards for either all or part of their disbursements should ask potential providers important questions, including:

  • What fees could be incurred by clients?
  • What costs do you charge programs to disburse payments?
  • How well do you understand, and are you aligned with, our mission and our community?
  • Do you require ChexSystems or similar credit review?
  • What are your “Know Your Customer” (KYC) requirements, especially around identification and physical address? What happens if a pilot participant can’t qualify for the card?
  • If you offer instant-issue cards, do they have extra limitations or fees?
  • Is the card “portable,” i.e., accepts deposits from other sources, like employers or tax refunds?
  • Can the card be used to withdraw cash at ATMs, at point of sale, and for online bill pay?
  • How extensive is your free ATM network?
  • What is the onboarding process, and how will you offer program and clients customer support?
  • What data on card usage will be available for the program?
  • Are there any additional perks associated with the card and provider (e.g., custom branding, useful platform for participants, etc.)?

Payment platforms have rapidly evolved with the field of guaranteed income (and with the urgent need to distribute emergency pandemic relief) to serve the needs of cash transfer programs. In some cases, prepaid providers also operate as a platform for disbursing payments (i.e., no need for an intermediary). In other cases, payment platforms offer cash transfer recipients a choice between receiving money via bank accounts or prepaid cards. Some also offer “virtual” prepaid cards or alternative vehicles like Venmo, PayPal, or fintech companies like Chime that are not licensed as banks but instead partner with banks to provide certain financial services.

Currently, the most prominent guaranteed income payment partners are:

  • Community Financial Resources (CFR), a nonprofit financial service provider that partners with US Bank to offer a white-label version of the Focus prepaid visa debit card. CFR is a partner in multiple guaranteed income pilots, including Stockton SEED, the Santa Clara pilot for foster youth aging out of the system, and a South San Francisco pilot in development with Urban Services YMCA. CFR also offers payment facilitation (no ACH intermediary necessary) and has partnered on projects with OFE and other City agencies in the past.
  • UpTogether, formerly Financial Independence Initiative, offers both a payment platform and a community platform that connects and supports people who share some of the same interests and goals. UpTogether also partners with multiple pilots, including Oakland Resilient Families, and offers three payment options: direct deposit to your bank account, a physical prepaid card, and a digital/virtual prepaid card.
  • The Fund for Guaranteed Income (F4GI), a nonprofit that leads the Compton Pledge guaranteed income pilot, has created a beneficiary payments platform that provides for cash transfers at scale, access to live support and financial wellness resources, streamlined administration, and privacy protections for users. Their mobile-friendly platform allows recipients to select from direct deposit, prepaid, PayPal and Venmo – and to change how they receive payments at any time. F4GI is working with several pilots and researchers, and is developing a government payments solution.
  • MoCaFi, a Black-led financial services company that offers prepaid cards issued by Sunrise Bank. MoCaFi offers both instant-issue cards with low barrier to entry (no ITIN or SSN required) as well as a fully portable reloadable prepaid card; recipients can also start with an instant-issue card and graduate to the full-featured product. MoCaFi partners with guaranteed income pilots including the Abundant Birth Project, San Francisco’s guaranteed income pilot for artists led by YBCA, and the Basic Income Guaranteed: Los Angeles Economic Assistance Pilot (BIG: LEAP).
  • GiveDirectly, the leading NGO specializing in digital cash transfers internationally, partners on cash transfer programs in nine countries, including the U.S. GiveDirectly provides a variety of ways to receive the payment, including a deposit into an existing bank account, a mailed prepaid card, MoneyGram, or PayPal.
  • Steady, an app developed by a fintech startup, has a community of 4 million members made up of contractors and gig workers in need of more income stability, and has been partnering with cities in the Mayors for a Guaranteed Income coalition to distribute payments.

For pilots run by City agencies, the City and County can either work with TTX to procure prepaid cards to be distributed by a community organization, or utilize third-party agents to disburse the funds, including nonprofits or fiscal agents. Using TTX for procurement increases City control over the process and reduces compliance burden for nonprofit providers.

To set up distribution of funds, a City department needs to work with TTX and share information about the proposal, including:

  • Program Name
  • Program Goals
  • Source of funds for payment (government or private)
  • Are the payments compensation for services provided as a condition of the program?
  • COVID / Disaster Relief?
  • How are recepients chosen? Income eligibility?
  • 'Is the program limited to or targeted by race / age / gender?
  • When you would like the payments to begin?
  • Estimated # of Cards
  • Frequency of loads (one time or recurring?  if recurring, list frequency, i.e. month, quarterly, etc...)
  • Expected duration of program?
  • Amount/Value of Loads:
  • Total gross amount per person
  • Need card personalized (recipient name on card)?
  • Distribution Method (mail directly to recipient, handed out in person via City agency, handed out in person via partner, other)

TTX will use that information to get tax guidance from the City Attorney, and, if necessary, work with the Controller’s Office and the requesting department to submit or update their Departmental Prepaid Card Policy. TTX will also identify the appropriate prepaid card product for the program, and begin to set up the procedures to procure the cards.

A City department may choose to use a third party to utilize particular payment options or increase confidentiality for sensitive populations. In order to use a third-party supplier or platform, a City department will need to either go through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process or expand the scope of an existing contract with an existing supplier or grantee. The City will likely need to pay the third party fordisbursing and tracking funds, performing bookkeeping, and taking on risks associated with cash transfers.

Image removed.Develop a plan for research and evaluation.

Research can be invaluable for an emerging field and may also be necessary to receive income waivers to protect eligibility for certain key benefits. However, research can also be expensive and time-consuming, especially randomized controlled trials and robust mixed-methods studies requiring Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. The good news is that many academic researchers are interested in working with pilots, and some have set up dedicated research centers, such as the Center for Guaranteed Income Research at the University of Pennsylvania, Stanford’s Basic Income Lab, and NYU’s Cash Transfer Lab. Local pilots have also worked with UCSF and UC Berkeley.

In general, there no need to replicate broad-based “does it work?” pilots or research studies, and substantial research has been done that rebuts common criticisms about guaranteed income’s impact on work (limited or positive), and whether money is used on “temptation goods” like drugs and alcohol (not widely evident). Other areas of potential focus include: how frequency and amount of cash transfers impacts outcomes; how cash may be an alternative or complement to existing services or interventions, including safety net benefits; wider impacts on neighborhoods or communities; impacts on chronic health disparities; and how guaranteed income impacts power-building and reduces relational poverty for marginalized and oppressed populations.

Experts emphasize how the importance of focusing on qualitative research that can tell the human stories about people receiving guaranteed income. Storytelling and narrative change are essential to build public will and debunk false narratives about poverty and deservedness.

Image removed.Identify process for recruitment and onboarding.

To effectively identify and recruit participants, pilots will either need to leverage existing community connections (often through nonprofit service delivery) or develop partnerships with other organizations and programs with these community connections. Talking to City leadership can help identify potential Departmental partnerships. Random selection can help make recruitment fairer, and experience has shown the importance of being very clear and transparent about the selection process.

To maintain the principles of a guaranteed income, pilots should seek to minimize recipient burdens throughout, including how people find out about the project, apply, enroll, receive money, and respond to research questions. Pilots should seek to avoid cumbersome application forms and reduce required questions as much as possible. Many pilots offer at least nominal compensation as an incentive (and thank you) for completing surveys or interviews.

Pilots must also decide how much guidance they will offer to recipients on potential impacts to public benefits. Discussing benefits requires some level of case management expertise, staff training, and/or referral networks to legal aid organizations or skilled social workers.  At minimum, pilots should develop and utilize orientation documents that are easily understandable and provide informed consent about potential benefits interactions.

Image removed.Consider supportive or complementary programs or services.

While a true guaranteed income approach is unconditional, that does not mean that pilot participants cannot be offered additional supportive services that might improve outcomes. In their 2018 guide to basic income experiments in cities, the National League of Cities and Stanford Basic Income Lab noted that while evidence from the U.S. is scarce, research from cash transfer programs in other parts of the world finds that combining complementary programs can strengthen the positive impacts of cash transfers.

One-on-one financial coaching is one such program that has been identified as very helpful to pilot participants, both in San Francisco and other cities. The Office of Financial Empowerment’s Smart Money Coaching Program has worked to connect financial coaching to several local pilots and issued a reportMyPath has had success pairing guaranteed income with financial mentoring in Santa Clara County’s foster youth guaranteed income pilot. Nonprofit legal service organizations including Bay Area Legal Aid have set up referral relationships with some pilots, and cities may consider offering other support and skills-building services to recipients, such as mental health and self-care supports, trainings on leadership and advocacy, skills development for high-growth careers, or other services that participants request. 

Image removed.Develop messaging, framing and communications.

Alignment on messaging, framing, and communications is crucial to build political and public will to progress from pilots to policy change – and to move from a false conception of scarcity and deservedness to a shared vision of abundance and dignity for all. Talk to City leadership and work to understand what messages your focus population will be receptive to. You can also check out the section on messaging, framing and communications in Jain Family Institute’s toolkit, or their literature review on how to frame guaranteed income policy.

About the Advisory Group

The Guaranteed Income Advisory Group was established by ordinance to advise the Board of Supervisors, the Mayor, and appropriate City departments on various aspects of Guaranteed Income. The Advisory Group was appointed by the Board of Supervisors and consisted of eleven members including people with expertise in economics, finance, political science, or public policy, and with experience researching and analyzing Guaranteed Income programs; people who have personally experienced poverty; people with professional experience service low income communities; and staff from relevant City departments. Together, this group had the knowledge and background to advise City leadership on the principles and impacts of Guaranteed Income.
