ILPs may include specialized medical, health or rehabilitative services. If cardiac rehab is included in your ILP it should not affect your subsistence allowances.

Independent Living Program (ILP)

WHAT is the Independent Living Program?

This type of program is always tailored to the specific individual needs, and might incorporate such things as assistive technology, Independent Living skills training, and/or connection to community-based support services.

WHO qualifies for ILP?

A veteran whose service-connected disability or disabilites and overall condition make employment goals infeasible at this time. This determination must be made by VA Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (VR&E) staff.

HOW are ILP's developed?

When VR&E staff determine that employment goals are not feasible, attention may then be turned to independent living needs. Through a process of personal interviews, consultation with professionals who may be providing medical or support services, feedback from family members, and additional assessment if necessary, the elements of an ILP will emerge. The veteran is very much a part of all ILP planning.

WHEN should I apply for the ILP?

If you believe your service-connected disabilites and overall conditions are so serious as to make employment goals impossible, you may request consideration for an ILP. However, you must first file an application for VR&E services, and get an appointment to review your situation with VR&E staff who must determine that an ILP is appropriate.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”
