  1. I just got this from a contact at a regional office RE: VRE. Take it as scuttlebutt, as the meeting is ongoing. Im putting it here so people see it. Berta, you can move it if you need to later. I wanted people to catch it now. No idea yet what/if/how it will be implemented so don't go citing this to your VRE person. Thx, CAS
  2. Hello, I have been working with an independent living counselor through the VA. A lot of what they are offering seems very basic and I am not impressed. My counselor has only had one brief phone conversation with me, and even though she was kind, I have only gotten two emails since. It is pretty obvious I am just a number. My issue is that it is really hard to find information on this program and the only other place where people listed what they got is old and outdated. I dont want anything crazy like a greenhouse, a knife making set of machines, or a boat. I dont think they are foc
  3. I have been having a hard time simply getting email from my voc rehab counselor. After reminding the counselor multiple times I got the email for orientation and exploration phase. When I got the email the attached documents had errors. On the functional test document for my doctor the numbers were wrong(order went 1,2,3,5,4) and my gender was wrong. On another document a page was blank when it was supposed to have text on it. Then when I called the counselor for my first appointment the counselor says "Did we have an appointment today? Let me see if I have nothing else going on ri
  4. Hello Everyone, After being approved for Voc Rehab and driving 35 miles back and forth to the VR&E office, I was recently sent a letter denying me for these benefits. Overall, it was a TERRIBLE experience. I felt like she was patronizing me each time i walked into her office. Despite taking the tests, giving her my transcripts and everything going smoothly(i thought), it seemed like each time I met with her their were new reasons to string me along not give me an IWRP. One time it was the testing, the next time it was that she wasnt prepared. I almost felt as if the counselor Allison,
  5. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: https://youtu.be/waV5t0HPtbM Today we are joined by Thomas Wendel, DAV National area supervisor for West Cost Region. Thomas E. Wendel served in the U. S. Marine Corps from 1983 until 1997. Since 1999, Tom has worked assisting veterans in processing various entitlement claims on the local, state and federal levels; first in Clare County as a county service officer and then when he came to work for the Disabled American Veterans in 2000. In 2008 he was promoted to the position of supervisor of the DAV Service Office in Detroit and later
  6. I have a 50% rating from the VA. I will have my first meeting with my Voc Rehab counselor in 4 days. I already have a job, but I plan to argue underemployed but it might be a stretch. I need to get some technical certificates to stay competitive and try to get a remote job (work from home) where I can control my work environment like a standing desk, etc.... I work in the IT industry. Does anyone have a sample PPT or word document plan to present to the VA counselor? I read Ben Krause's site and he suggests that you go in prepared with a PPT or Word plan that shows your reasoning an
  7. I have just graduated from a 6-month educational program that Voc Rehab paid for. Now I am supposed to submit my resume and license to Voc Rehab and start the "Employment Ready" portion of the program, where I receive 2 months of pay to tide me over while I look for work. I have a license to work for myself, so technically showing my resume and license would be enough to qualify for being Employment Ready. However, my husband has just been offered a position to travel internationally for the next year or two. Of course my daughter and I will be going with him, and we leave Sept 1. So I'm confl
  8. I have to admit that I did not do much research on this opportunity, but it did come to me from a different Veterans Benefits web site, and I think there may be one or two or more on this site who could/would take advantage of such an opportunity. Overall summary, is that if you are unemployed, and looking for some retraining, but can not afford the cost of changing courses, then you may be interested in reading/pursuing more: http://benefits.va.gov/vow/education.htm I am also attaching the wording of the VA Notification so you can decide if you want to pursue this link and the advert
