According to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance "Social security benefits are exempt from state and local income taxes."

If SSA benefits are your only source of income then you are not required to file a NY state return.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.

Nope, the federal is the same.

A positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I am credited
