Q & A
My grandfather, who is receiving Supplemental Security Income, will be coming to live with me. Does he have to report the move to Social Security?
Answer: Yes. An SSI beneficiary must report any change in living arrangements before the 10th day of the following month. If you do not report the change, your grandfather could receive an incorrect payment and have to pay it back, or he may not receive all the money that he is due. Failure to report a change could result in the deduction of a penalty from his SSI benefits. Your grandfather also needs to report the new address to receive mail from Social Security. You can report the change by mail or in person at any Social Security office. Call toll-free at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY: 1-800-325-0778). You can get more information by reading Understanding SSI atwww.socialsecurity.gov/ssi.
