Vocational rehabilitation providers furnish a wide variety of services to help people with disabilities return to work. These services are designed to provide the client with the training or other services that are needed to return to work, to enter a new line of work, or to enter the workforce for the first time.
If you are disabled and want to work, you may contact the rehabilitation agency in your state directly, at any time, and let that agency know of your interest in receiving rehabilitation services to help go to work. The address and telephone number of the state vocational rehabilitation agency can be found in the telephone book.
Your Responsibility for Reporting Events
Rights to benefits under the Railroad Retirement Act also carry responsibilities for reporting events that may affect the payment of benefits. The RRB informs you of events you are obligated to report; and, if you do not comply, benefit overpayments can occur that have to be repaid, sometimes with interest and penalties. Part V lists the events that you must promptly report to the RRB
