Feasible But Not Feasible For Voc Rehab

Question

Well i had my voc rehab appt today and my counselor decided that i am feasible she thinks i should be able to do the training then tells me that i am not feasible because i am unable to move closer to the schools and bigger job markets I cant move i dont have the money to get a new place for a family of 7 and i have 2 kids in high school one junior one sophmore and one in JR high and to in grade school they all have moved multiple time while i was active duty now there established and have there goals and friends and i should pack everything up to go to a new town for me to go to school i cant do it its not fair to my family.

My DR has told me i need to quit my job and apply for IU but i need to provide for my family i feel so usless right now and like such a looser she had 2 options for training one as a medical records tech and the other an a plus computer tech i wanted to talk to my wife about options then she tells me im not feasible because i live so far away and driving will aggravate my knee and ankle conditions so i should withdraw my request for rehab no chance to discuss my options with my wife or family realy pissed right now

IU would be your best option when Voc rehab turns you down, or you could go over her head and go for the Voc rehab.

Send her a Certified letter.......list your previous conversations on the Voc Rehab, then state you want the denial in writing with a proper reason.

Voc Rehab is there to help you get trained for a job that meets your Pysical and or Mental needs based on disability......If this is not Feasible, then they MUST deny based on well grounded reasoning, and distance alone is not one of them, but being phiscaly unable to drive that distance due to SC'd disability, would be in most cases.

This leads to IU, you must make her put it in writing without pushing the IU, as she will most likley do it without thinking once the letter of denial is written.

I have an appointment on Wed with my primary care DR and i will discuss with him as well he has already told me and put in my medical records in his medical opinion i should be considered unemployable so i am going to see what his take on this is. The thing that gets me is she had me sign the statement to drop out right there at our first meeting not giving me a chance to look into my options or discuss with my wife

Send her another letter, tell her you have re-considered your previous decision to drop and wish to take it to the next step......she can say no, but it wont fly.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
