Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

But I'm still disabled. is there a way I can increase my benafits? I only make $671.00 per month

You may not increase your social security benefits...

HOWEVER you may apply for additional mean tested public benefits which are based on your needs.

First of all - you may qualify for SSI - Supplemental Security Income - that is a Federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues (not Social Security taxes).
In your situation - as long as your income is below certain limit - you may have additional check issued to you.

Other benefits may include housing assistance and energy assistance programs, food stamps, Medicaid, etc.

Let me know if you need any help with these.
