Numerous veterans in our Facebook group, Disabled Veterans – Chapter 31 Voc Rehab, have been reporting problems and confusion from their counselors this week.
In response, I held this linked Facebook Live session addressing one of the most common games Voc Rehab Counselors play that cost unsuspecting veterans thousands in lost funding for retraining.

If you are about to sign your IWRP or you just did, I address the biggest game I’ve been seeing in the past 6 months in this session.
For those of you who do not know, VA Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment, aka Chapter 31 aka Voc Rehab aka VocRehab is one of the best programs around for helping disabled veterans gain suitable employment.

The program can help you merely find a job or get retrained to be a doctor or anything in between. Depending on the veteran’s circumstance, Vocational Rehabilitation can be a life-changing program.

For others, the program can be confusing and result in a veteran feeling cheated… especially if the counselor is aggressive or dishonest.
Tune in to the Voc Rehab Facebook Live session to learn about the way Voc Rehab Counselors are conning veterans and how you can fight back.
My Vocational Rehabilitation Background
For those new to this website, I received all of my post-military training through VA Vocational Rehabilitation. The program paid for my undergrad at Northwestern University and my law degree from the University of Minnesota where I graduated magna cum laude.
The program even paid for my veterans rights law firm to help me help veterans sue VA.
All in, the program paid over $350,000 for my retraining. It was a great opportunity, but that opportunity did not come easy. I had to fight every step of the way, which is why I wrote the Voc Rehab guide, Voc Rehab Survival Guide.
