These consist of social transfers in kind, except reimbursements, made by social security funds to households.

Most of other social security benefits in kind are likely to consist of medical or dental treatments, surgery, hospital accommodation, spectacles or contact lenses, medical appliances or equipment, and similar goods or services in the context of social risks or needs.
