Enhancing Tennessee's Workforce through Vocational Rehabilitation

If you or a loved one has a physical or mental impairment that makes it difficult to find or keep a job, Tennessee'sVocational Rehabilitation program may be able to provide you with assistance. Vocational Rehabilitation is a program that is state and federally funded which provides services to individuals with disabilities to help them return or enter into employment. The program was designed to assist individuals with disabilities in competing successfully with others who are currently in the work force to earn a living. To be eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation, individuals must meet specific guidelines related to a physical or mental disability that results in a substantial difficulty to obtain employment. Individuals will meet with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor who determines eligibility with the help of medical examinations, psychological examinations, vocational evaluations, and other diagnostic information secured by the agency to determine the nature and extent of the disability. Applicants who receive SSI (Supplemental Security Income) or SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) benefits based on disability or blindness are presumed to be eligible if they intend to go to work.
