This is of course assuming you are filing a claim; otherwise this is just FYI.

Your individual disability insurance policy is portable and benefits will not be affected by moving to a different state. If you have disability insurance through your employe…r, and move in a new state while working for the same employer, benefits will not be changed. However, if you leave your employer, you may lose the disability insurance benefits through a group DI policy. If you are currently disabled and are receiving disability benefits from the state, you will have to check with the new state regulations on social security DI; If you are receiving benefits through a personal/ individual insurance policy from an insurance company, then benefits are not going to be affected by the state of residence.
