Are Social Security benefits the same for all states?
Yes. Social Security is a federal benefit that varies primarily according to the amount you paid in FICA taxes, the number of years worked, and your age at retirement. The benefits are the same in all 50 states.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a form of welfare for low-income disabled people and seniors 65 and older, is also funded by the Social Security trust, but some states supplement the federal payment, so the benefit received may vary depending on your state of residence.
