VA offers help with vocational rehabilitation and reemployment

Most Tennessee residents would probably agree that the nation's veterans deserve to be treated with great respect for their sacrifices on behalf of the country. Even so, some returning veterans who suffered disabling injuries or illnesses require considerable help. To try to meet their needs, the Department of Veterans Affairs is offering vocational rehabilitation and employment training for those disabled in the line of duty.

The vocational rehabilitation counselors and employment coordinators of the VocRehab Veteran Employment Tracks program are helping veterans with injuries acquired during active duty build meaningful and sustainable careers. The counselors are directing veterans toward benefits intended for them, working with the veterans to develop personalized rehabilitation plans and find jobs.

Counselors and coordinators first try to get veterans rehired with former employers. The VocRehab program will support employers in providing adequate accommodations for veterans so they can continue along career paths that the veterans already know and want to continue pursuing. The Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment program also helps veterans secure jobs through rapid access employment. This type of employment is usually for those veterans who are ready for jobs.

The VR&E program is also encouraging war veterans to consider becoming self-employed. The VocRehab program will help veterans interested in starting their own small businesses by providing training needed for their particular businesses. The VocRehab program also provides employment through long-term services, which provides ongoing training to veterans during the course of their new careers.

Finally, the VocRehab program assists veterans who have severe limitations in returning to work as a result of their injuries or illnesses. The program helps solve these veterans' problems by providing independent living services including social services and home modifications so they can lead more comfortable lives.

However helpful the VocRehab program aims to be, there are still a multitude of issues veterans can face. Sometimes, these struggles can become overwhelming. In these instances, seeking the assistance of an experienced attorney can help ease stress and possible build a strong plan of action to move forward toward comfort.
