Question

In 2012 I applied for VocRehab but was denied because I have so much debt that I still need to work full time and the counselor said I could not do both, would I be able to reapply when my debt is paid down more?

If you're able to work full time then you're not eligible for Voc Rehab.

Not true, and you should not stand for this. VOC Rehab is there to help Vets further their employment opportunities through education. Any Vet with a 20% or more rating is eligible to apply.

That's how it was explained to me by a Voc Rehab counselor. Please feel free to post the requirements for eligibility.

Ordie: I've had (3) Voc Rehab Councilors reg (3) Claims. Two were great and helped me with what ever I needed, the 3rd is a real trick and very difficult to work with regarding the ILP program. 1st two were back in 12 & 13 regarding Voc Rehab which wasn't successful due to SC conditions. Didn't get the "much needed Denial letter" due to my own lack of knowledge. Had too sgn up a 2nd time for (3) weeks to have another councilor review my 2012 unsuccessful attempt at Voc Rehab and Write "The Denial Letter" that I subsequently used as "New & Material Evidence" at my 2014 DRO Hearing. Helped get a reversal of 2012 IU Denial.

Filed with Voc Reb for ILP same day as awarded IU. My current Voc Rehab Councilor is less helpful than expected. I've put (2) Vet friends into the ILP with good success and kind of know what the ILP program can do. My current councilor makes it like pulling teeth to get info reg benefits.

The fact that your working doesn't preclude you from Voc Rehab. You may need to change due to SC health issues. You can get retrained in a completely different field. The VA wants you to stay "Gainfully Employed" so that you don't need IU. Reapply, thats what I did when I needed the "Denial Letter." You'll get a NEW councilor. If they start to give you the run around, ask to see the VA regulation that supports their contention that your not eligible due to being employed. You can work full time and do online rehab if something tickles your fancy.

  • 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.
