I know that SSA has title 42 of the United States Code, but do they have to abide by the rules set forth in title 26 also? Specifically how "Gross Income" is defined? The two titles seem to have a different set of rules for defining income, but it seems like the rules for SSA in title 42 are just not as detailed (possbily cause they don't need to be?)
Sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm new to this.
