Monthly Benefit Amount

I want to know how in the world does social security believe that a person can feasibly live off of 740 a month? They use some standard to determine what acceptable amounts for the cost of living. Have they not realized how much rent is? I have two kids and I am a single mom. My rent is 600.00 a month not including utilities and other basic needs. So with my monthly benefit check being 740.00 how in the world can a person not alone a family live normally with 140? Its not possible and every single month I struggle to feed and pay the bills. They need to readjust per case in figuring out a person's output vs input. I need more help!!!
