VR&E Independent Living track source: VA.gov


If your service-connected disability limits your ability to perform activities of daily living (like bathing, dressing, accessing the community, and interacting with others) and you can’t return to work right away, you may qualify for independent living services through the Independent Living track. You may also receive these services as you work to find a job if that’s a goal you and your Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC) have created. In both cases, your VRC can help you restore your daily-living activities. 

Find out if you may be eligible for services through Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) to help you live as independently as possible.

Can I get independent living services through VR&E?
You may be eligible for independent living services if you’re a service member or Veteran with a service-connected disability who is eligible for VR&E benefits, and you meet all of the requirements listed below.

All of these must be true:

You have a serious employment handicap (SEH), and
Your disabilities prevent you from looking for or returning to work, and
You’re in need of services to live as independently as possible
Please note: Having an employment handicap means your service-connected disability limits your ability to prepare for, obtain, and maintain suitable employment (a job that doesn’t make your disability worse, is stable, and matches your abilities, aptitudes, and interests). 

What kind of benefits can I get?
Depending on your needs, services may include:

Evaluation and counseling to identify your needs and goals
Referral to support resources
Evaluation to see if you're eligible for the VR&E home adaptation grant. This grant is part of your rehabilitation plan to improve accessibility features in your home.
Guidance to help you understand if you’re eligible for our adaptive-housing programs. These programs can help you make changes to your home—like widening doorways or adding ramps—so you can live more independently.
Learn more about adaptive housing grants
These services generally last up to 24 months. In some cases, you may be able to use services for longer than this.

How do I get these benefits?
First, you’ll need to apply for VR&E benefits. Then, you’ll work with your Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC).

If you have your VA disability rating, follow these steps to apply:
Sign in to your eBenefits account.

Click Additional Benefits on your dashboard.

Click Veteran Readiness and Employment Program.

Apply for the Veteran Readiness and Employment program.

If you’re eligible, we’ll invite you to an orientation session at your nearest VA regional office.

If you’re eligible, a VRC will work with you to determine the severity of your service-connected disability, if you’re ready to work, and if you’ll benefit from independent living services. Your VRC will help you create a personalized, written independent living plan that meets your needs

i currently have a job that goes above and beyond to help me and allows me to work. but if i were to ever lose this job i wouldnt be able to find one that could be so flexible(take time off when i need, working from home as needed due to stress etc) i have lost many jobs in the past i believe due to my PTSD and TBI issues. would someone like me be eligible for any assistance even though i am currently employed? i have never looked into this. i have heard about these programs but always thought bc i work i am disqualified.

i would love to be able to take some classes to help further my skills in my current job but the GI bill doesn't pay unless you are full time student, and i cant handle that kind of load. 1-2 classes is all i can manage at a time and even that is a challenge with my disabilities. 

i also only have one bathroom in our house. its on the second floor and the shower is a clawfoot tub. i have dreamed of getting a walkin/roll-in shower because i have fallen so many times getting in and out due to my leg, feet and back injuries. again i never thought i would be eligible for these programs bc i have all my limbs and thought it was mainly for wheelchair bound. 

thanks for any advice

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
