You can also work with your State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agency. VR agencies often provide

more significant types of rehabilitation or training services compared to what an Employment Network may provide.

In some states, this includes intensive training, education, and rehabilitation. They also may provide career counseling,

job placement assistance and counseling on the effect that working may have on your Social Security disability benefits.

If they agree to take you on as a client, they also will work with you to develop an Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE)

that can help you get a job. Many VR agency services end approximately 90 days after you start working.

If you need ongoing support and services after the VR agency closes your case,

you can then work with an EN to continue your progress toward financial independence.
