You can always apply for VOC REHAB, the only thing is: if you're 100% for a mental condition, VOC REHAB will deny your request.

If you're 100%, then it's still a strong possiblity that VOC REHAB will deny your claim.

You may be more benefited, if you apply for the ILP program or the Independent living program.

IN this program, the va helps the vet "improve his/her quality of life" in and around their home!

Check into that, cause from the sounds of things, this may be the best and safest avenue you should and could pursue.

Hope this helps.

Whoop:

I think that you are mistaken about 100% Mental as Voc Rehab has approved before. The main thing they look at is if they think the rehab will lead to employment.

I was approved for Voc Rehab in 1998 even though Service Connected at 100%. If they will not give you Voc Rehab don't forget to ask for Independent Living.

Good Luck to all

The VA recognizing that a Veteran will not be able to Voc Rehab and go off disability attempts to enrich their life by paying for something that will make living better for the Veteran.

Examples from past are a computer and stuff needed to use it including training, camera for a hobby, improvements to make more comfortable like a good a/c, remodel bathrooms and things of this nature, They have to rule out voc rehab first.

Pete is right, My grandfather has a stepson who suffered a bad ptsd experience in the CG.

He mind is shot. The VA bought him a swimming pool. Nothing fancy but at least it is a pool.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
