Default Bad Caps in a Linear Power Supply

I've been looking online but not found anything definitive, yet I was looking for info regarding how failed or failing filter caps change the output voltage. Both with and without load?

Is it correct that with bad caps, a PSU voltage might test ok without load, then drop 10% once under load?
