Section 407(b)(3) of the Social Security Act, as amended by the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, requires a State's required work participation rate for a fiscal year to be reduced by the state's caseload reduction credit for that fiscal year. The caseload reduction credit gives a State credit for reducing its caseload between a base year and a comparison year.
