I receive social security disability from an injury years

I receive social security disability from an injury years ago (this was based on a very long worker's comp case). I had a daughter so I received benefits for her. I assumed when I had another child I would also receive the same amount of benefits. But when I had another daughter, they spilt my first daughter's payments between my two dependents. is this correct?

My husband and I are very confused about the best time to

My husband and I are very confused about the best time for us to file for social security. We are both 62 and have read many articles about pros and cons of early and late retirement. We both have chronic illnesses but are not ready to stop working yet. We have high medical expenses, but have insurance coverage through the wife's employer. Husband works part-time and makes approximately $21,000/year not counting pension from a school department. Wife earns about $31,000/yr. There is a possibility her company may shut down within the next few years. Wife's mother and grandmother died at 71 due mainly to alzheimer's. Husband's parents both died in their 80's. He has a kidney transplant and diabetes. We own our home, with a $75,000 mortgage (just refinanced at 3.6%). We have approximately 20,000 in our savings, a pension of $1800 a month and a small 401K, so we are really "cash poor". We figured if we wait til age 66 to file, we will net about $4600 a month and if early at 62, $3900 (this does not take into account the penalties for continuing to work). What would you advise as far as when to file for social security? If husband needs to file for disability in the near future is it best for him to file now or later?Thanks for any clarity you can give.
