No.  Once you are disabled and receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) as a benefit, the monthly amount is set by laws, regulations, and annual cost of living adjustments.  You are either disabled under the laws and regulations, or not.  If you are more disabled now than you were when SSA granted benefits, you are not entitled to larger monthly payment. Unfortunately, it sounds as though the cash benefits that you are receiving are the most that a single person may receive this year.

You may want to investigate State or County cash benefits that may be available.

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.
