  1. Hi everyone, I started voc rehab on October 10th of 2016, my counselor put me in a program extended evaluation because I have gone to school in the past and did not work out for me. I get BAH every month while I attend to this program, I volunteer at a call center and the manager submits the hours that I volunteer to my voc rehab counselor. I am required to complete 32 hours every week. During the month of November I completed half of the hours I was required to work resulting in an over payment from the V.A. I could not attend to my place of duty some days because I had ER visits, v.a. appointments and disability related matters. My counselor told me that my best bet is to file for IU since I was not fit for school and had 4 different jobs in 2016 due to ptsd and physical disabilities (currently 80% combined) She mentioned that she was going to write a memo explaining that I am not employable, she said that her letter would carry a lot of weight in regards of the V.A. making a decision to put me in IU and to get SSDI through the SSA. My concern is how long would this decision take to get approved, I have read many posts and it seems that it can vary from 2 to 6 months sometimes 1 year. I cannot wait that long since I have a family to support and bills to pay like everyone else. I submitted an "intent to file" claim on ebenefits 3 months ago, I am putting all the evidence, mri's, doctor's notes, and evetything else that I need to increase my rating and to add other disabilities that I did not add in the past. I am going to submit the claim in a few weeks: Should I get letters from my therapists and psychiatrist stating that I am not employable to have a more solid claim? Is extended evaluation considered full time work and will this be seen like I am employable? I just sit down all day at the call center and help with paperwork and maybe call 6 individuals per day. Any inputs welcomed
  2. Went to Voc Rehab Orientation today and was told by counselor that he wants me to work at GoodWill for 60 days for a work evaluation.Why would he offer me this? I told him that I needed to work from home due to my PTSD. I have major anxiety, and depression and this will be difficult for me to accomplish. Anyone ever heard of a counselor offering something like this? I believe he is a new counselor as well.
