  • Job Search: Assistance in finding and maintaining suitable employment. 
  • Vocational Evaluation: An evaluation of abilities, skills, interests, and needs.
  • Career Exploration: Vocational counseling and planning.
  • Vocational Training: If needed, training such as on-the-job and non-paid work experience.
  • Education Training: If needed, education training to accomplish the rehabilitation goal.
  • Rehabilitation Service: Supportive rehabilitation and couseling services.

Time Limits: You generally have 12 years from the date VA informs you in writing that you have at least a 10% rating for a service-connected disability.
