I'm collecting SS now and still working full time at present

Customer Question

I'm collecting SS now and still working full time at present time. (trying to increase my benefits when I do retire) Are there other benefits that I may be eligible for from SS? I am facing some cancer tumors, one on my pancreas and one on my right kidney. I will be starting some chemo treatments to shrink these tumors so that the surgeon can do the operations to remove them. I have medical insurance but the first $4000.00 comes out of my pocket before the insurance kicks in.
