Contributions you make now might be part of your highest earning years, and as such can increase your future benefit by increasing your wage base. So, the general answer is those contributions likely do boost your future benefit.

I don't have your wage history to check, or your current wage level, or your current benefit. Typically, your income at this point in life is among the highest earning years. Also, you don't mention being at the top tier, or max benefit recipient. Those exceptions not being applicable, you will get a higher benefit by working and deferring your benefit. The base benefit will be higher, as well as the 8% premium you get each year for waiting to claim.
