I had an excellent experience working with Enrique Fernandez on my case. He was always efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Mr. Fernandez and Montlick & Associates to anyone who has been involved in a personal injury matter.
When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.

We Fight for What's Right, Not What's Easy

Disability, according to the Social Security Administration, is the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity due to any physical or mental impairment(s) which are medically determinable and expected to last for a period of not less than 12 months. In order to collect Social Security Disability benefits a person must:

  • Be incapable of engaging in substantially gainful employment
  • Have earned wages and paid into the Social Security system in at least 20 of the last 40 quarters


The payment amount you are eligible for is based on your income while you could work. You may receive a yearly cost of living adjustment depending upon how long you collect Social Security Disability benefits. Eligibility for the benefits ceases if your condition improves and you are able to return to substantial gainful activity. However, if you return to work in spite of a disabling condition, you should notify the Social Security Administration as it may be possible to continue receiving benefits.

You can receive Social Security disability benefits until you turn 65. At that time, your disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits, but the amount stays the same. After 65 you cannot draw additional benefits due to disability.

Eligibility and Similar Programs

Other programs exist that are similar to social security, like Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI is financed through the general tax revenues and not through Social Security trust funds. SSI disability benefits are paid to:

  • People who have a disability
  • People who have limited income and financial resources

If your Social Security benefit amount is low, you may be able to apply for SSI as well.

Additional Programs

You May Be Entitled to Benefits

If you can’t work due to a disability, you may be entitled to benefits. Contact the professional at Montlick Law to find out what your options are. No matter where you are, we are just a phone call or message away.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a program that workers, employers, and the self-employed pay for with their Social Security Taxes. These benefits are based on your work history and the amount of your benefits is based on earnings over your lifetime. The amount of your SSDI benefit is determined by the Social Security Administration and is determined by:

  • Your covered earnings
  • Your age
  • The date you became disabled

If you become eligible for SSDI, Social Security will automatically enroll you in Medicare after you get Social Security disability benefits for 2 years, beginning the month you are entitled to receive disability benefits as opposed to when you receive your first check.

We Fight Hard to Get Our Clients the Social Security Benefits They Deserve

We believe in justice, which is why our Montlick attorneys work hard to get you the maximum social security benefits owed to you. If you think you may have been wronged and that you should be getting more social security than you are now, call us for a consultation at 1-800-LAW-NEED.
