Q: Do Social Security amounts change when someone moves to a different state since living costs vary across the country?

A: Social Security benefit amounts are based primarily on a person's work record. Moving to a different part of the country will not change the amount. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) amounts can change when a person moves, whether across the street or across the country.
