The DTAP is an essential element of providing guidance in transition which incorporates involvement in support of the members in service to the military who are subjected to discharge from service due to their disability or those members who have a disability and therefore become eligible to benefit from the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Program of the VA.
Providing proper guidance and encouragement to the eligible members in service and deciding about the program of Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment of the VA is the main aim of the Disabled Transition Assistance Program. The DTAP also aspires to enable the swift delivery of the vocational rehabilitation services for the qualified members in service and also provide them guidance in applying for the benefits of the vocational rehabilitation program.
The presentations held by the DTAP are typically group sessions which encompass a complete discussion about the program of Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment of the VA. It also provides counseling for the retiring veterans and service members regarding the vocational or educational programs.
The DTAP sessions for the members in service who are disabled and hospitalized for receiving treatments are organized by the VR&E officers of the VA Regional Office. Visit the webpage of www.benefits.va.gov/vocrehab/index.asp to find more information about the VR&E program.
