Hello, experts. I have a question about an omission of 'that is' and I would like to hear your thoughts.

 

I have some money (that is) saved.

 

I have some money (that is) left.

I have some money that is saved.  The underlined is an adjective clause because it describes a noun.

I have some money saved.  The underlined is an adjective phrase beginning with past participle.  Structure is different but they have same meaning.
