Thank you for your question --

As you drew your benefit before full retirement age, you would be unable to change the nature of your benefit. If you draw prior to your full retirement age, social security automatically pays you the largest benefit available to you - either 32.5% of his benefit, or 75% of your full retirement age benefit.

In your situation, I am so sorry but there is nothing you can do to get more monthly benefits.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
