To: Servicepersons Awaiting Discharge Who May Have a Disability
Subj: Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment--Getting Ahead After You Get Out
Do you have a disability that began or became worse during active duty? If so, you may qualify for
employment services, training, education, and other services through our Vocational Rehabilitation and
Employment Program. This letter tells you about our program and how to apply.
What can vocational rehabilitation do for you?
Vocational rehabilitation can help you get and keep a good job. While training after you leave active duty,
you'll get monthly payments to help with living expenses. These payments are over and above any VA
compensation, military retirement, or separation pay. You may even start rehabilitation before you leave
active duty. If you're too disabled to work, we may be able to help you live more independently.
On the back of this letter, you'll find more details about vocational rehabilitation. You may also want to get
