Order Of Selection For Vocational Rehabilitation Services

When the department does not have enough funds to serve all applicants who are deemed eligible for our services, the federal government requires that we use an Order Of Selection process. DOR must serve people with the most significant disabilities first. Placing you in a priority category, provides a fair way to serve all applicants in the correct order.

All those in the "most significantly disabled" category will be served first, followed by everyone in the "significantly disabled" category and then the "disabled category."

Within each category, we serve people according to date of application. The person who applies first is served first, the person who applies second is served next, etc., until everyone in that category has been served.

Waiting List

If the DOR does not have enough funds to serve your category, you will be placed on a waiting list until your turn comes. If you are on the waiting list, we will send you a letter every 90 days to tell you which category we are currently serving. As soon as we are able to serve your category, we will let you know. You will then be served in order of the date you submitted your application.
