A landlord can increase rent, the tenants circumstances are not the landlords issue

Yes he he can. Heis not limited by your income when determing the rent increase amount.

The landlord can do as he wishes unless restricted by the lease.

Yes, they can (and do). Your lease locks the market rent in for a specific period of time. When your lease is up, your landlord can offer you a renewal, usually at a higher rate. Your specific financial situation doesn't really factor in, particularly at larger properties that can take a bigger hit on vacancy.
You always have the option to not renew your lease and move out. You can also potentially add a roommate to help offset your costs. But, at the end of the day, your landlord is running a business. Most businesses have to adjust prices for inflation at a minimum. Milk doesn't stay the same price year over year. Neither does rent.

Yes. Your financial issue shave no bearing on the LL's ability to raise rent.

Rich or poor, on SSDI or not, those do not determine whether raising rent is legal. If you do not have a written lease, then he can raise it however he wishes and as often as he wishes. If you have a written lease, then he cannot raise it mid-lease. Once it expires, he can raise it however often he wants and as much as he wants. If rent control is in place, then he is limited as to how much he can raise it. Generally, it is HIS place. As an owner, he has the right to determine how much he will charge. If you find it too much, keep looking.

Of course. Remember, their expenses increase all the time. They need to pay their bills. Landlords want to rent to reliable tenants who take care of the property & pay their rent & bills on time. Perfectly reasonable expectations.
If you cannot afford the place, you will have to move to a place you can pay for, or increase your income. If people who are blind, deaf, paraplegic, quadriplegic, etc, can earn a living, why can't you? There are seniors who continue working into their 70s & 80s. Start a home-based business if you have any skills, or brains. If you can apply for Section 8, it can take 5-10 years on a waiting list. So what do you want to do?

Absolutely. When it's time to renew your lease.
*ok then you are on a month to month tenancy agreement depending on your local laws they can give you a 30 or 60 notice to increase your rent.
