You need to change your address with USCIS. You may use form AR-11, which you can find on the USCIS website. You may also call USCIS and register your change of address by telephone.

Regarding Social Security, you should call and ask.

Yes, file form AR-11.

You don't need to notify the SSA of any address change, but within 10 days of moving need to fie an address change form (Ar-11) with USCIS. It is best to do so on the USCIS website and print the receipt for your records. It is faster and more effective than calling the USCIS 800 number and being placed on hold fr a long time.
