    Vocational Rehabilitation

    What is Vocational Rehabilitation? Vocational Rehabilitation is a program of services for service members and veterans with service-connected physical or mental disabilities. Often, these individuals experience limitations in getting and keeping a job as well as in their daily living activities. This program can:
    • Prepare you for a suitable job 
    • Help you get and keep that job 
    • Assist you to become fully productive and independent 

Some of the services and benefits which VA can provide include:


  • Evaluation of your abilities and skills
  • Educational, vocational, and personal counseling
  • Education and training to qualify you for suitable employment
  • Financial assistance while you are training
  • Special help, such as Tutoring assistance, Readers for the visually, and Sign-Language interpreters
  • Medical and dental treatment, to include Prosthetic devices, and other special equipment
  • Employment counseling, career planning, and job placement
  • Assistance to become independent in daily living

  • HOW DO I QUALIFY?

    Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area veterans who desire further specific information about qualifying receiving funds for training should contact your local VA Regional Office. 

    WHERE CAN I APPLY OR OBTAIN FURTHER INFORMATION?

    If you are a veteran with a service-connected disability, complete and send VA for 28-1900, disabled Veterans Application for Vocational Rehabilitation, or write to the nearest VA Regional Office.
