Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the information. Your additional contribution into the Social Security System for the last five years should have resulted in increase in the amount of your benefits in additional to the regular increases.

You need to go to your local office Social Security Administration and have a representative review your record to see why you are not receiving an increase based on your additional work especially when you have been making approx 110k per year.
