§ 102. Programs Not Covered Although Closely Affiliated With Social Security - Black Lung, Medicare, AFDC, Private Pensions


For many individuals and families, Social Security benefits overlap with or interact with other important benefits. While SSI is a special case, other close program-to-program relationships exist. These relationships are, in most cases, structured by provisions of the statutes or regulations that regulate the interaction from both sides. Although such related benefits and their interaction with Social Security can have a major impact on the Social Security claimant, this reference work does not provide detailed treatment of Black Lung benefits, Medicare, private pensions, or the many other forms of income support that resemble Social Security in some respects. It does, however, include summary treatment of the Social Security side of the relationship between its benefits and the more important overlapping programs.
