Top 3 questions regarding vocational rehabilitation in Michigan.

Question #1: What is vocational rehabilitation?

Vocational rehabilitation is a workers’ compensation benefit that helps a person transition to a new career. The goal is to get you back to gainful employment despite any work restrictions.

Question #2: What does vocational rehabilitation cover?

The insurance company will typically hire a vocational counselor to help come up with a plan. You can also receive up to 2 years of tuition reimbursement or retraining. Sometimes all that is needed is help with a resume and interview tips.

Question #3: Can vocational rehabilitation hurt your situation?

Some insurance companies hire vocational counselors for the purpose of harassment or to reduce wage loss benefits. A vocational counselor can make your situation worse by ignoring restrictions or by suggesting demeaning jobs. Watch out for vocational counselors who only want to determine your residual wage earning capacity and were not hired to help you find a new job.
