Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Just Answer is not associated with Social Security so we do not have access to your personal information.

My best advice would be to call Social Security directly at 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday, to find out the reason for such a substantial increase.

You certainly want to know if Social Security made a mistake.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
