Hiya, Im getting SSI in California which pays a little more money, I was living there in my motorhome when I decided I had enough of California and decided to travel through different states and find a new place to live. SSI rules say I have to give them my new address before I move, but I didnt have one to give them so I didnt and I didnt know where I would end up.
Its been about 2 months since I have been in California and Im still getting benefits from there, ive been through 5 states and spent a few weeks in each one just parking on the side of the road, now Im in a town in Idaho and have been here 4 days. Im wondering, If Social Security finds out ive been doing this could I get in trouble? Or do they Actually expect me to go to the nearest SSI office and tell them every time I enter a new state? Even though I have no address to give them. (I get direct deposit)
I guess this may fall under "vacation" rules. Can a person on SSI go on vacation to another state and keep the benifits from where they live? Or is there some kind of time limit like maybe if your vacation is longer then 60 days maybe you have to notify them?
What if I keep doing this for a year until I find a state to settle down in and get an address?
Anyone have any ideas about this?
Thanks for any help
