It has been a long time since I went through Voc Rehab, but it was quick( within 2 weeks) once I was found eligible. You also need to talk to a counselor at the Tech School that knows about the VA programs in case they drag their feet on payment to the School, also take any papers from the school to show your starting date and hourly count to your VA appointment.

Voc Rehab is the best program going IMO, I wasn't even allowed to buy a pencil....I would just go get what I needed at the book store and sign a receipt. Keep your grades in check and your enrollment up to date along with appointments with the VA Rehab.......things go smooth, or at least they used to.

I became eligible for VocRehab in Sept 06, and was in school for the next semester. Like JR says it is usually pretty quick once you have done the interview and testing. I think all thats next is you turning in your program of study, as long as its approved you will get a letter from them telling you how much you are going to receive each month based on your hours of study. I don't know if you are aware of this but you also are eligible for dental care while you are in school. Good Luck. I agree with JR it is a great program and a great opportunity for vets.

    • After many years of working untold numbers veterans claims, After winning the first ever VA claim for AO inside CONUS FOR MYSELF. After producing the next three AO claims to win inside CONUS for other veterans. After winning a Korea AO claim for a veteran not serving in a unit on the DMZ. After winning a Thailand AO related sole surviving widow's claim for DIC along with accrued benefits for a non dog handler stationed at Utapao AFB. If I could sum it all up and explain in one sentence the most important fact of all, the most underutilized, hard to comprehend and misunderstood tool in veterans claims it would have to be,  IF YOU CAN GET A DOCTOR TO SAY ITS SO, ITS SO. IF THAT DON'T WORK FOR YOU GET TWO DOCTORS TO SAY THAT ITS SO. IF THAT DON'T WORK, GET THREE! WHY TAKE A CHANCE, GET THREE TO BEGIN WITH AND NAIL IT THE FIRST TIME AROUND. HOW CAN A VETERAN AFFORD TO DO THAT ON A TIGHT BUDGET?  I PLAN TO DISCUSS THIS EXACT IMPORTANT TOPIC ON THE PODCAST COMING UP ON THURSDAY EVENING OCTOBER 27TH. 6:00 CENTRAL TIME.
    • It is a fact that insulin injections cause weight gain problems. Another fact is that, yes, some VA doctors will be very adamant as to the cause of the OSA. If you expect a VA doctor to write you a letter then you need to know how to ask for it. Don't be meek, but rather confident and assertive. Ask for what you want.  
    • If your C&P was actually preformed by the local VAMC you can get the result after three business days from ebenefits or from ROI at the VAMC. If your C&P was farmed out to be preformed by QTC your results will not be available to you until after the claim is decided.
    • The very first prerequisite for R-1 is to obtain a "O" rating. Read CFR 3.350 - 3.352 for eligibility rules. You don't mention anything about SMC "S" that you should qualify for, and you might qualify for regular A&A, depending upon your individual circumstances.
    • Just my opinion but it looks to me like you could qualify for mild lower raticular group ratings of both arms (as they note several nerve groups affected) which would give you 20% per arm and add 10% on top of that for bilateral conditions.  You may hit 100%.  That being said, it would surprise me if they don't schedule you for an EMG.  This test is a breeze if you have sensory issues.
