If your benefits only are Supplemental Security Income, more benefits from Social Security Administration are not available.

However, it would be important to check on any State or County benefits in your state.  You may wish to call 211 or go to Link

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

At least here in Michigan, either you are disabled or you aren't.  So being more disabled does not get you more money.

Social Security
Social Security is a federal government program, primarily funded through payroll taxes, that provides an array of benefits to retired workers, the survivors of workers, the disabled and low-income families. Social Security attorneys typically work with one of two groups of clients. Many Social Security lawyers focus their practices on working with those whose applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) have been denied. These attorneys assist clients at eligibility hearings and throughout the appeals process. Other Social Security law firms represent those who have been accused of Social Security fraud and those who are victims of Social Security fraud.
