In America, those whose physical disabilities are hindering them from being properly employed for work can receive income supplements in the form of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The SSDI is payroll tax-funded, and carefully managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Ideally, the insurance should be readily available to all those whose conditions leave them without a job, however, the SSA can be very particular about who receives the insurance and who does not, leaving out even those in most need of financial support.
Those whose applications were not accepted still have a fighting chance to receive benefits. Submitting an appeal can help, since it gets the authorities to review and reexamine the applicant’s case. Of course, it would greatly help if applicants could better articulate their case to truly secure the benefits they need.
