Am I eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation?

You may be eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) services if you have a physical or mental impairment that is a large barrier to employment.

We help people with disabilities go to work. You must want to work and need VR services to train, find, or keep a job. If you are unemployed or underemployed, you may  benefit from vocational services.
