AF1993 posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research ForumI am currently employed as a federal law enforcement officer, retiring in a couple of months. When you reach age 57 you are mandated by law to retire. With the SC conditions (I'm 70%), I have, I will not be able to acquire employment in the exact discipline I'm in. I currently earn six figures but upon retirement but my pension will be $50K . I have a BS in Voc. Educ, and I would like to work as a school counselor or teach. I am new to this process, so can anyone share what's the best way to approach in terms of seeking approval with Voc Rehab & Employment so I can get a Master's Degree? Do I even have a chance of getting approved? I have at least 10 years of "Work Energy" left.
