An entitlement program in the U.S. is a government program that provides people with personal financial benefits. There is typically a very large number of potential beneficiaries who are eligible for this entitlement. These individuals must satisfy the eligibility requirements and conditions that are specified by the laws, regulations, and policies that authorize and manage the program.
Some of these entitlement programs deliver special government-provided goods or services. Common examples at the federal level in the United States are Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and Veterans’ Benefits, as well as federal employee and military retirement plans, unemployment compensation, food stamps, and agricultural price support and subsidy programs. Beneficiaries of entitlement programs are generally individual citizens; however, there are some entitlement programs for organizations such as small businesses, local governments, and political parties.
