Applying for the Vocational Rehabilitation Program

The Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS) provides vocational rehabilitation (VR) services to assist Connecticut residents with significant disabilities to find and keep employment.  Please review the Job Seeker publication for an overview of our services.

If you would like to apply for VR services, it is recommended that you make arrangements with the BRS office nearest to where you live to file the actual application in person. We do not offer online applications at this time.
You may contact the office where you will apply to learn more about what services may be available and what you must do if you are eligible for services.  You will also learn if you need an appointment to meet with a counselor or attend an orientation meeting.  To find the office nearest to where you live, follow this link. 
If you are eligible, a counselor will help you develop an employment plan based on your needs and abilities and will help arrange whatever services are needed to achieve your employment goal. 

If You Are Not Eligible


If you are not eligible for assistance from BRS, there may be other resources to assist you.
