The Social Security program provides three types of benefits. The first are short-term benefits, which are usually provided for a limited period of time (no more than 26 weeks or 6 months) and are intended to replace lost work income. Sickness Benefit, Maternity Benefit, and Maternity Grant are examples of these.
Long-term benefits are pensions that are usually given for a period longer than 26 weeks, although they may also be one-time payments. These are the Age Benefit, the Age Grant, the Invalidity Benefit, the Invalidity Grant, the Survivors' Benefit, the Survivors' Grant, and the Funeral Grant.
Employment Injury Benefits are payments made as a direct result of an employment hazard. Employment Injury Benefit, Disablement Pension Benefit, Disablement Grant, Medical Expenses Benefit, Widow's Benefit, and Widower's Benefit are among them.
