2.2 What does 'demonstration' mean?

A demonstration is a trial run or try-out of a new approach to something. The purpose of the BOND demonstration is to test whether gradually reducing benefits $1 for every $2 of earnings over a BOND yearly amount ($14,160 in 2018) will lead to increased earnings and employment for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries.
