It is immaterial what state you live in; social security is a FEDERAL benefit which means that the benefits are computed the same way no matter where you live.
I suspect you are asking about SSI (supplemental security income) which is NOT a social security benefit but it is managed by the Social Security Administration. SSI is the federal welfare program for people of limited income/resources and since it is a federal program the benefits are also figured the same way throughout the nation. The maximum SSI benefit is $733 a month.
However, if someone gets SSI some states supplement the federal benefit and some states don't. The state of Texas does not supplement SSI. Nevada only supplements SSI if the person is aged (over age 64) or blind; Nevada does not supplement anyone who receives SSI based upon being disabled. The amount of the supplement in Nevada varies from $24 a month to $36 a month depending upon living arrangements.Source(s): I was a social security claims rep for 32 yrs.

Social Security is a national program its the same no matter where you are in the country.
The only thing that would vary is how or if the state taxes Social Security or how little you can make and still be taxed.
Nevada and Texas don't tax Social Security, but you should be aware that things like property tax, or water bills or sales taxes might be higher to make up for that.

Social security benefits are based on how much you paid in over the course of your career/job life.
You can find that out at the social security website, but their site sucks. Best just to walk into an SS office with documentation and they can tell you.

The state has nothing to do with it.
SS is a federal program.
Your benefits depend on how much you paid into it while you worked.

If you mean SSI welfare, that varies in each county.

The amount that you calculate here should be the same for all states.
