Re: SISIP vs VAC VOC Rehab

Post by bigrex on Sat 30 Sep 2017, 19:44

You should not have to wait until SISIP is completed before applying for VAC rehab. The only criteria for approval is that you have to apply for it within 120 days following your release, unless you have a VAC recognized disability. That seems as if it would be counter-intuitive to having to wait until SISIP runs out. So, if I were you, I would be contacting VAC in the spring, once you have a firm release date. Since as far as I can tell, there is no reason that you could not be approved for both VAC rehab and ELB, at the same time as being covered under the SISIP LTD. After all, if SISIP can pawn off the costs for retraining to VAC, they will gladly do it. Plus it wouldn't hurt to find out if the program you are interested in, will even be approved before your actual release, so you don't find yourself left in Limbo.

Hey everyone,

I am headed towards 3b release due to injuries sustained in the forces. I am expecting to be released Aug 2018.

SISIP VOC rehab covers you for two years of education. I need three years of college to accomplish my goals. I have heard of vets getting a full degree in university covered under VAC Voc Rehab with one fellow getting 6 years of university education approved. Now from what I understand, one can only access the VAC VOC Rehab after the SISIP two year period has expired. So my question is, can I combine both services to accomplish my goal of a three year program?

Thanks in advance for your time!
