The factors that determine SSD benefit amounts

If a person is collecting Social Security Disability benefits, the benefit amount remains the same regardless of where that person lives. For instance, if a person moved to West Virginia from New York, the recipient would see no change to future payments. This is because the system is a federal one, which means that the rules apply equally in all states. However, those who receive benefits may see changes to their state supplementary benefits.

What to know about applying for permanent disability

If a West Virginia resident is granted disability benefits, he or she will be subject to continuing disability review (CDR). Individuals may be scheduled for diary review dates one, four or seven years after initial benefits are granted. It's important to note that a person must be totally disabled to receive social security disability (SSD) or SSI benefits. This is true even if the disability itself is not necessarily permanent.
