Resources for Veterans
According to American Community Survey data, 29.6 percent (3.5 million) of Veterans ages 21-64 have a disability. Some of these Veterans have been determined eligible for Social Security disability benefits and others would be if they applied. The Veteran population is one that Employment Networks and State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies could serve. Use the resources and information found in this section of yourtickettowork.com to better serve Veterans and aid in their job searches.
General Background Information

The presentation is titled "Beyond Yellow Ribbons: Welcoming Veterans with Disabilities in Our Workplace."
