This report provides a classification of types of overlap and a synthesis of ERS research about overlapping payments in the U.S. farm safety net, including how to identify and measure overlap among crop revenue insurance, ACRE, SURE, and ad hoc disaster assistance. Future research avenues are suggested, including exploring how income support and risk management programs interact within the context of a whole farm revenue definition of farm business viability.
