As to your question about "more financial help" the answer is not likely with the Social Security Administration.  I would suggest reviewing this website: https://www.disability.gov/

SSI is Supplemental Security Income.  It is a "needs based" program and assets and Social Security Disability Benefits directly impact whether or not you will receive SSI.

If I understand your question correctly, you are receiving $725/month in disability payments from the Social Security Administration (SSA).  If so, this amount is greater than the amount that a person receiving SSI can receive, and thus, you are not eligible for SSI.  The maximum amount in 2012 is $698/month for an individual.

PLEASE NOTE that an in person consultation is always best when you have a legal problem. DO NOT RELY on information for a legal remedy without having contacted a lawyer. Facts and circumstances of every case have to be applied to the law that is relevant for the state or location in question.

I'm not really sure of your question based on the information supplied.  If you are disable, you are entitled to Social Security Disability.  You could also be eligible for Supplemental Security Income or SSI if your income is very low.  You may also be eligible for housing assistance, or depending on where you are living, entitled to an increase in benefits.  SSI may be taking into account your living situation - are you renting or sharing a place with another person?  You need to speak to the Board of Social Services in the County in which you live.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
