    • Hi Sheryl, thank you for reaching out to us. The amount each person is paid depends on how much they paid into the Social Security system, which means that unfortunately we would not be able to get your benefits increased. However, if you believe that your benefit amount was incorrectly calculated, you should contact your local Social Security office.
