BEA: The abbreviation for the Bureau of Economic Analysis, which is an agency of the U.S. Federal government, specifically a branch of the U.S. Department of Commerce, that compiles and reports a wide range of economic data and measurements. At the top of their list of important economic numbers maintained by the BEA, is the National Income and Product Accounts, which includes gross domestic product and the broad assortment of related measures of income and production. Economists rely heavily on the BEA to provide data needed to evaluate and analyze the macroeconomy.

INCOME RECEIVED BUT NOT EARNED:

The three types of income received but not earned (IRBNE) are Social Security payments, unemployment compensation payments, and welfare payments. These are three key transfer payments from the government sector to the household sector. The basic goal of transfer payments is to transfer a portion of the income earned by the factors of production (because they HAVE income) to other members of the household sector (who presumably NEED more income than they have). IRBNE is added to national income to derive personal income.
Income received but not earned (IRBNE) is income that members of the household sector have NOT rightfully "earned" by contributing to the production of gross domestic product. Members of the household sector receive this income as transfer payments from the government sector.
  • Social Security Payments: Social Security payments are the other side of the Social Security system. These are payments made to qualifying elderly and disabled members of the household sector. Because the payments are NOT received as a result of any current productive activity they are income received, but not earned.

  • Unemployment Compensation Payments: Unemployment compensation payments are transfer payments from the government sector to unemployed members of the household sector. Unemployment compensation payments are NOT received as a result of any current productive activity. They are income received, but not earned.

  • Welfare Payments: Welfare payments are transfer payments from the government sector to poor members of the household sector. Welfare payments are NOT received as a result of any current productive activity. They are income received, but not earned.
