You can still receive SSI on her behalf. However, since SSI is made up of Federal and State components, the amount that she would be eligible for may change depending on the State that she is going to moving to. Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this. Thank you for your cooperation.
