What is the name of your state? California
Can anyone explain to me the process of voc rehab? I'm confused as to when it is decided whether I am eligible for it or not. About every 3 months I receive a letter from the wc office stating that they are delaying their decision about it due to not knowing my restrictions set by my doctor. Right now I haven't even been released for modified work but if I am going to be able to train for a new career, I would like to get started soon. I have been off work for almost 2 years now as I broke my foot 6/12/02, had tarsal tunnel release surgery 12/5/02 and am now diagnosed with having rsd. I am aware that rsd is lifelong and a very touchy thing to deal with but I am feeling terrible just sitting at home day after day. I have been recieving treatment for the rsd for over a year now and haven't gotten any better, when will they decide I am permanent and stationary? Anyway, if someone could explain to me how the voc rehab works and when I should ask about it or have my attorney ask for it I would be grateful! Thanks a bunch!
