      Hi, Diana, and thanks for your questions. If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and you plan to be in another state for 30 days or less before returning to your principal residence, your SSI payment will not change. However, we need to know if you plan to stay longer than 30 days because your payment amount might change. Some states supplement the federal benefit rate with an additional amount. Please call your local Social Security office. You’ll find the phone number with the Office Locator. Our call volume and wait times are greater than normal, so please be patient. We hope this is helpful.
