Federal Aid: Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (Chapter 31)

Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (Chapter 31): The VR & E Program aids veterans with service-connected disabilities to prepare for, find, and keep suitable jobs. If any training is needed, the VA will pay your training costs, such as tuition and fees, books, supplies, equipment, and, if needed, special services. While the VA will also pay a monthly benefit to help with living expenses called Subsistence Allowance. To receive an evaluation for VR & E services, a veteran must have received, or will receive, a discharge that is other than dishonorable, and have a service-connected disability rating of at least 10%. To apply, complete VA Form 28-1900 or apply online at: www.vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp.
