Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you today :-)
How are you doing today?
Unfortunately, your health will not increase your social security payments --- your benefit is based on your earnings record. There's no increase in benefits if you are disabled and retired, you will simply get retirement. The only possible increase is if you are very low income and then SSI may be available to you.
Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not please rate positive so that I may receive credit for assisting you today.
Thanks so much :-)
