Vocational Evaluations in VA Claims

This presentation will provide an overview of individual unemployability, what VA can and cannot consider in adjudicating these claims, and how vocational opinions may be used within the context of a Veteran’s appeal. Topics for general discussion will include service-connected disabilities, how VA defines substantially gainful employment, and the importance of describing functional limitations within the context of the Veteran’s vocational and educational history.
