    No SSD (Social Security Disability) will not change because it's federal. For SSI (Social Supplementary Income)yes it would be because of cost of living by state.

    I know a lot deafs on SSDI living in Tijuana with San Diego addresses and Juarez with El Paso addresses.

    Costs of living in Mexico is about 1/8 of what it costs to live in US.

    Really? That's strange cuz SSD is paid by federal taxes and SSI is paid by state taxes.

    SSDI (Social Security Disability Income) is based on your earnings and you would not get it unless you had five years productive employment - and it will increase in accordance to how long you work and how much you earn during that time. This is fixed according to federal guidelines - it will not change if you move from state to state.

    SSI (Social Security Income) is based on the cost-of-living rate in the state you currently resides - and it will flucate according to the COF rate in each state. So, if you were to move to Missouri from California, it would go down at least $25.00, because the COF rate is lower in Missouri than it is in California.

    It's also a bit easier to have your SSI/SSDI direct deposited into a nationwide bank such as Bank of America or USBank at least a month before you move out of state - if you know way ahead of time, I would suggest doing it immediately.

    Even if you do plan to stay in the state you currently reside in, it's always a good idea to have your check direct deposited into a bank - that way you do not have to worry about late mail, destroyed/missing/stolen checks, or people peeking into the envelope to see how much you're getting.

    Do u work before? SSDI is for people who worked for many years while SSI is for people who does not work. SSI will increase or decrease but not SSDI, same as everywhere depend on how much they earn while they worked. My friends have SSDI moved to Fla and back, still same.

    I disagree with your post. You will get SSDI when you have over 10 years of productive employment. I had SSDI for four years, starting with California. The amount was high, but eventually I moved back to Las Vegas after I graduated from SFSU, my SSDI amount was decreased a little bit (I don't remember how much). Then, I moved to PA for a job and asked SS Office to put me on Work on Trial for 9-12 months. The amount was the same as far as I remember.

    But, I guess the rules of SSDI and SSI vary in different state.

    Yes, it happens because they can afford living in Mexico at cheap costs. I don't mind buying a huge house in Mexico while working in US. The costs of houses in US are merely bullshit. :eek2:

    Living in MExico and entering US for work-- even if you are an American-- will be a PAIN IN THE BUTT with the new regulation requiring you to have a passport!

    That is very true. My bank is a nationwide one, so it made it very easy for me when I moved from Minnesota to Texas last april, and I didn't have to change banks!
