How Will Moving Inside the US Affect My Claim? What Are the Benefits in Different States?

Moving to another state will not affect the amount of a check you receive from disability insurance benefits although you should always notify the Social Security Administration when you move. The amount of SSI you receive would change from state to state, and you should check with the Administration to see whether the state you are moving to offers a supplement to the Federal check. It tends to be true that states with a higher cost of living offer a small supplement, but this is not always so.
