In the event that your insurance claim is denied, it is important that you familiarize yourself with some common terms so that you can understand the full extent of the case and why your claim may have been denied. Some of these more important definitions are:
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). If a disability or medical condition has you left you incapacitated and-or unable to work, you may be eligible to receive income supplements through Social Security Disability benefits. SSDIs are paid to qualifying candidates and their families if they have worked and paid into the Social Security program by way of payroll tax for a certain period of time.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Unlike SSDI, which is paid out via Social Security tax revenue, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is funded by general tax revenue. This supplemental insurance pays out benefits to disabled citizens based on their unique financial needs. The program is meant to provide financial assistance to the blind, aged and disabled for essential items like clothing, food and shelter.
