Vocational rehabilitation is typically made available to veterans, namely, those who qualify for at least 10% partial disability from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Vocational rehabilitation provides important job resources to service members who may experience barriers to employment. Often, these barriers are a result of their time in the military. Approximately 70% of veterans who apply for the VA’s Vocational Readiness & Employment program have a “serious” employment impairment. The goal of vocational rehabilitation programs is to help these veterans. Vocational rehab helps veterans build skills and access resources that help them access, sustain, or reenter employment.
Veteran vocational rehabilitation may include financial assistance for tuition, textbooks, and supplies. It also includes housing costs necessary to obtain further education. Additional support is provided through the resume-building process and skill development. Vocational rehabilitation benefits veterans in need of help, especially when optimized to include behavioral health support. To learn more about the benefits veterans can receive from vocational rehabilitation services, keep reading below.
What are some of the data-backed benefits that veteran vocational rehabilitation can offer?
- Undergraduate education — 69.5% of veterans enrolled in the VA’s Vocational Readiness & Employment program received the financial assistance necessary to start or complete an undergraduate education.
- Assistance for younger and middle-aged adults — Veterans of any age can apply for vocational rehab; in 2021, the majority of those who applied for and received vocational assistance were aged 22 to 39.
