You can Receive SSI Disability Anywhere in the U.S.

Recently, I receive a comment from an individual that questioned if her twenty-two year old daughter, a Michigan resident, would be able to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits if she takes a one year road trip around the United States. Social Security is a Federal agency that is nationwide, therefore SSI recipients to not have to reside in a certain state to receive SSI disability benefits. She can receive them anywhere in the United States without a problem.

SSI benefits are generally suspended if an individual is out of the United States for more than thirty consecutive days and cannot be reinstated until the individual is in the U.S for thirty consecutive days. In this case, her daughter is not leaving the United States, therefore her being out of the state of Michigan will have no affected on her eligibility for SSI benefits.

Except if you reside in US territories such as Puerto Rico or Guam in which case one cannot receive SSI.
