    Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment

    VA can help veterans with service-connected disabilities prepare for, find and keep suitable employment. For veterans with serious service-connected disabilities, VA also offers services to improve their ability to live as independently as possible. Some of the services VA provides are:

    • 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.
