If you are now getting 2293/month, that means you are annually getting over $27,500, which is an increase over prior years, not a decrease.

You can confirm your amount by going to ssa.gov/myaccount and signing in to your confidential account - there you will want to download your benefits letter, also referred to as income verification letter.

However, if you wish to appeal it, you will want to go to your local office and file an appeal there. You can not appeal over the phone, unfortunately.
