Rapid Access to Employment – Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) helps veterans who are ready to enter the workforce, find, apply for, and secure suitable jobs. VA may provide expert career-placement assistance, job accommodations, and other specialized support.
Self-Employment – Self-employment can be fulfilling and may offer the flexibility a veteran with service-connected disabilities needs. VocRehab can aid veterans who are interested in working for themselves by helping analyze and develop a business plan, and providing training on how to market and operate a small business.
Employment Through Long-Term Services – For veterans with service-connected disabilities who require additional skills or training to find competitive employment, VocRehab will guide them to what they need, be it education programs and vocational training – including on the job training, mentoring programs, work-study programs, or other job preparation programs to help them retrain for a new career.
Independent Living – some veterans with service-connected disabilities may not be able to return to work, but with support from VR&E, they can live fulfilling, independent lives. VA helps them with access to community-based support services, the use of assistive technologies and accommodations, and independent living skills training.
