  • Is traveling to visit family in another state allowed once approved for ssi

    Requirements for being able to travel to visit family

    Brian’s Answer

    Yes, you may travel. If you move, you must tell the Social Security Administration your new address and
    phone number as soon as you know them. Also, tell them the names of any family members who are getting benefits and who are moving with you. Even if you receive your benefits by direct deposit, SSA must have your correct address so it can send letters and other important information to you. Your benefits will be stopped if SSA is unable to contact you.
