If you move states then it is very likely that you will have to re-register and therefore re-claim your disability benefits - however you should still be eligible to receive them.

The best thing to do to ensure you are still entitled to disability benefit and to avoid a long delay in your new payments coming through is to contact your new state's benefits office straight away.

For a complete rundown of how to apply for disability benefits, you should head to:
Or if you would prefer to speak to the disability benefits office over the phone to check what you need to do to claim in your new state then, you can call the following number:
• 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. And 7 p.m. Monday to Friday

As stated earlier, it is always the best policy to try and sort things as soon as possible to avoid any gaps or delays in your disability benefit. Understandably you may have many other issues to sort during your move, but making your benefits a priority will help reduce the stress of any money matters you may encounter.

If you would prefer to contact the local disability benefits department for your new state then simply head to and then type in your new state and disability benefit office.

I have been employed with the same company for 13 year. I recently had to apply for state disability due to a work related injury. I can no longer afford to reside in the state of california with what I am earning on state disability. Can I relocate to another state and still recieve my disability benefits?
