Q) How do I transfer my ss to another state?
A) If you are referring to transferring your Social Security benefits to another state, you do not need to take any action to do so. Social Security benefits are not tied to a specific state and can be received by eligible individuals regardless of where they live within the United States.
However, if you are moving to a new state, it’s important to make sure that you notify the Social Security Administration (SSA) of your new address. This is important to ensure that you continue to receive any correspondence and benefit payments from the SSA in a timely manner.
You can change your address with the SSA by visiting their website at www.ssa.gov, by calling their toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213, or by visiting your local Social Security office in person. When you contact the SSA, be prepared to provide your Social Security number and other identifying information to verify your identity.
According to Social Security website – You can view or update your contact information (e.g. change your address) of record via the My Profile Tab on my Social Security. In addition, you can decide when your change of address will take effect.
Who can update their address information online?
People receiving Social Security (Retirement, Survivors and Disability) benefits and those enrolled in Medicare can use my Social Security to change their address and other contact information.
This service is not currently available to people who also receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or do not have a U.S. mailing address. However, if you are receiving SSI, you can still check your address we have on record via the My Profile Tab on my Social Security.
