VOCATIONAL REHAB - CHAPTER 31

The Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) VetSuccess Program is authorized by Congress under Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 31. The VetSuccess program (Chapter 31) assists Veterans with service-connected disabilities to prepare for, find, and keep suitable jobs.

A VA Veteran who is eligible for an evaluation under Chapter 31 must first apply for services and receive an appointment with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor(VRC). The VRC will work with the Veteran to determine if an employment handicap exists as a result of his or her service connected disability. If an employment handicap is established and the Veteran is found entitled to services. The VRC and the Veteran will continue counseling to select a track of services and jointly develop a plan to address the Veteran's rehabilitation and employment needs.

If found to be eligible for Chapter 31, the student or counselor will provide an Authorization and Certification of Entrance or Reentrance into Rehabilitation and Certification of Status(28-1905) to the VA certifying officials at Indiana Wesleyan so that student's enrollment can be certified with Vocational Rehabilitation.
