I am 71 and retired from my regular job at 55. Started drawing my very small $300. Social Security check. It is so little because there were years in which I found it impossible to work and take care of my mentally and physically disabled son.  So, my work resume is very spotty.  I have been taking care of my disabled son for many years now and I am his IHSS worker.  I get about $500 per month as I am doing it part time.  Does working as an IHSS worker entitle me to more Social Security money and or benefits for myself?
