Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
It is quite strange that your benefit has not increased that much. If you were receiving the correct Cost-of-Living Adjustments, COLA, your benefit amount would be a bit higher than it is. See here for COLA percentages. You need to go to your local office of Social Security Administration and have a Claims Specialist review your record to see why you have not received the properly COLA for the past 81/2 years.
Goodluck with your case,
