Earth to Voc Rehab?

Question

Is it normal for it to be nearly impossible to get in touch with Voc Rehab?

 

I called the 1-800-827-1000 number and they gave me some high level info, but referred me to the Voc Rehab office at my VARO for my more specific questions. I called the number several times, but am stuck on hold for hours.

Vync, easier to just ask than look at your prior posts, so bear with me. Are you currently in the Voc Rehab Program? If so, have you laid a "paper trail" of E-mails to your VRC? have you left a significant number of Messages on your VRC's Direct Line Voice Mail?

All your Emails to your VRC are copied to your VR File, proof of your contact attempts.

Speaking only about my Det RO, the VR & IL Dept are located directly behind the VA RO Receiving Desk. This is about 100 ft down the hall from all the VSO RO HQ offices. You could ask a VSR to stroll down the hall and ask WTF up about not returning calls or E-mails.

Last but not least, do you have the Telephone number for the RO's VR Dept in-take desk? Might be time to ask for your VRC's Supervisor. Time to get the Old Wheel Squeaking, in need of grease.

I am not currently in the program. No email trail yet.

The Voc Rehab number I called is 334-396-1986, which is at the Montgomery VARO. I get the initial phone menu and press 1 to be transferred to VR. That's where things go South. It repeats a message every couple of minutes saying I am being transferred to VR. Nobody ever answers.

    • 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.
