Veterans who have a service-connected disability that limits their ability to work or prevents them from working can find employment through VA’s Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) program. The VR&E program provides services such as job training, education, employment accommodations, resume development, and job seeking skills coaching.
To qualify for the VR&E program, veterans must have a service-connected disability rating of at least 10%. The VR&E program can help veterans with job training and finding employment that accommodates their disability.
You can find more information about the VR&E program on the VA website.
