If you already receive Social Security retirement, is there a way to increase the benefit amount ?


Other than your yearly cost-of-living increases, your Social Security retirement benefit amount can only increase if you are still working.

Sometimes, your benefit may increase even if you are only working at the Social Security earnings limit, because those current earnings may take the place of low earnings years on your earnings record.
