After an application is completed and submitted, an interview is scheduled between you and a counselor. A friend or family member may accompany you to the interview. A counselor will discuss career goals, work history, educational background, disability and the services necessary to reach an employment goal.

Eligibility is based on three factors:

  • You have a physical or mental impairment which causes or results in a substantial impediment to employment;
  • You can benefit from services that lead to employment; and
  • You require vocational rehabilitation to prepare for, secure, retain or regain employment.
