VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION COUNSELING
Voc Rehab seeks to determine whether a veteran’s disability causes a serious employment handicap and whether a career goal is feasible for the veteran. To be eligible for Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Vocational Rehab (Chapter 31), the veteran must have a service-connected disability which contributes to an employment handicap.
To be eligible for State of Florida Vocational Rehab, a veteran must have a disability that is limits employment. If you feel you have a disability, which is a barrier to employment, please see a CareerSourcee veteran representative or visit: http://www.vba.va.gov/bln/vre/ for more information.
