Va Vocational Rehab

Karen Said:

What's the deal with VA vocational rehab?

We Answered:

I was both an employee of Chapter 31 "Voc Rehab" and also went to college and graduate school under the VA "Voc Rehab"

It is actually simple;

as far as the VA goes.


They have rules and guidelines: none written in stone but the basics: service connects, and that the disability is a vocational obstacle, etc.

You "apply" to the VA, but first talk to such as a National Service Rep from the DAV: Disabled American veterans!

hey if they deny you; get back to me!

But use the VFW, DAV, etc first to assist!

I got six years of college! Granted I was so messed up but,
when I got into my Ph.D., well the university was paying me a good sum to teach, another story.

Betty Said:

VA Vocational Rehab and GI bill?

We Answered:

i am retired, and disabled using voc rehab chapt 31. i am going to school ful time and am receiving a cost of living stipend. you may want to check with your counselor, mine told me that if i had mgib (i was a VEAP) than i would not qual. for chapt 31 (maybe you are not chapt 31?) i don't know what state you are in, but here in pa, they have an office of vocational rehab at state level and they re-imburse me for mileage on a weekly basis. again, depending on where you are, to find out info, check with your welfare or unemployment offices. chances are you will get some blank stares or "duh" answers because thiese programs aren't used by many people. you can also submit a FAFSA app. i receive state veteran grants thru it, and this yr i took a stafford loan just to help out with things (it is what my va counselor recommended). what are you going to school for? good luck. you can email me directly if you like: agenstr@yahoo.com

UPDATE TO "MARINE5" YEAH I AM 40% DISABLED ALL SERVICE CONNECTED. I GET MY RETIREMENT PAY, VA DISABILITY PAY. COMBAT RELATED SPECIAL COMPENSATION PAY AND THE VA TRAINING STIPEND. WHAT STATES AND OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES HAVE TO OFFER TO VETERANS IS LEGALLY OVER AND ABOVE WHAT I GET FROM THE ARMY AND VA. THERE IS NOTHING THAT STOPS A VETERAN FROM APPLYING AND RECEIVING ASSISTANCE THROUGH FAFSA AT THE FED OR STATE LEVEL. AND YOU CAN NOT RECEIVE VA,CHAPTER 31 VOC REHAB ASSISTANCE UNLESS YOU DO HAVE AN AWARDED VA DISABILITY RATING. PA'S STATE VOC REHAB ASSISTS WITH COMPENSATION FOR FUEL SINCE I AM IN A TRAINING PROGRAM LEADING TO EMPLOYMENT. SOME STATES OFFER FAR MORE THAN PA IN HELPING VETS,SOME LESS. THE PROBLEM WITH A LOT OF VETS IS THEY THINK THEY KNOW ABOUT EVERYTHING OUT THERE SO THEY FAIL TO ASK. THEN THEY TEND TO ATTACK THOSE WHO LEGALLY RECEIVE THIS ASSISTANCE. IT IS LIKE AN AIR FORCE RETIREE WHO REPORTED ME TO THE STATE WHEN I WAS RECIEVING UNEMPLOYMENT COMP AFTER I RETIRED, SOMETHING THAT HE THOUGHT HE WAS RIGHT ON SINCE HE "KNEW IT ALL". THE STATE REGS SAY THAT ANY HONARABLY SEP. VET CAN RECIEVE UNEMPLOYMENT COMP. IT IS BASED ON A FORMULA THEY HAVE OF PRIOR WORK HISTORY (TIME AND WAGES EARNED) I N PA 20 YRS IN, QUALIFIES YOU FOR ABOUT 2 YRS OF UC, EVEN IF YOU GET A PART TIME JOB. IF YOU HAVE SOME SOUR GRAPES TO SQUASH, I SUGGEST YOU SEE YOUR LOCAL VETERAN'S REP.

Joshua Said:

VA Vocational Rehab and what it will effect?

We Answered:

It won't effect your appeal or compensation. The goal of Voc Rehab is to get you employed and settled for the future. They have you come in and meet with a counselor and take a set of test to determine your ability to learn and just generally what your strengths and weakness are. From there your counselor can tell you what options they can provide for you if you don't already have an idea of what you want to do. They can help from every thing from helping you seek employment and sending you to resume writing classes or sending you back to college to get the need education to accomplish your goals. It all depends on what your interest are in. They can even help you start your own business with some stipulations and a lot of work on your end. Whatever you and your counselor decide to do you'll more than likely receive an additional monthly stipend to help with your cost of living while in the Voc Rehab program. Voc Rehab isn't for every one but its always safe to apply just in case and see if its for you. It does effect your GI Bill depending on what you do with Voc Rehab so thats some thing to consider.

Check out the VA site to apply and for additional details.

Mark Said:

What is the vocational rehab. program from the VA?

We Answered:

It is a program to see if a veteran can go to work in a different field than they were,it takes in account your physical and mental abilities, sometimes an evaluation is not enough so the VA will send you to school to see if it can be done.If you go you will be payed as well and can get grants to help pay to,like the pell grant

Cecil Said:

How does my local hospital cna classes get veterans administration approval?

We Answered:

Your local Veteran's Administration representative can tell you that. You have been to see him/her, haven't you? Once you get your DD-214 in your eager hands, you need to go down and register with them. Most, if not all, states and counties within each state also have a veteran's representative. You can look up their phone number and office location online or in the old-fashioned Yellow Pages.

Thomas said:

My school submitted my invoices to my counselor over 6 months ago. My school has since suspended my account will not let me register for the last class that I need and I cannot get my transcripts because they have not been paid. My life is being affected tremendously. The one class I need starts in a month and my counselor is no where to be heard from. I have tried contacting her 10 times with no avail. I need to reach out to people above her and put them in contact with my school because I am afraid my counselor is incompetent. They have been late on payments every semester now but 6 months is excessively late. How do I complain and where can I find a number to someone or some office that will be able to help me and find out if my counselor is doing her job? This program has very little transparency and I believe something fishy is going on.
