7.10. Coverages wide enough to embrace benefits in kind.-
The Encyclopaedia Britannica gives the following examples of social security.
"Thus, social security may provide cash benefits to persons faced with sickness and disability, unemployment, crop failure, loss of the marital partner, maternity, responsibility for the care of young children, or retirement from work. Benefits may be provided in cash or kind for medical need, rehabilitation, domestic help during illness at home, legal aid, or funeral expenses. Social security may be provided by court order (e.g. to compensate accident victims), by employers (sometimes using insurance companies), by central or local government departments, or by semi-public or autonomous agencies."1
