If you’ve been investigating California’s Supplemental Job Displacement Benefits Voucher program, you’ve probably realized that, as valuable a resource as the voucher may be, it often needs to be supplemented with aid from other programs.
We’ve compiled a quick list of other state- and federal-provided resources that might be helpful to you after being awarded permanent partial disability from a Butte workers’ compensation claim. Read on:
- The California Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR): The DVR provides access to several resources, from dispute resolution to career counseling. Be warned that the DVR is a state agency and dealing with them will require persistence and patience. Many of our clients have told us the effort was worth it.
- Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program: If you have been able to successfully obtain Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Insurance, this federal program exists to provide training and counseling targeted to help participants re-enter the workforce.
- Board of Governor’s (BOG) Fee Waivers: This program waives enrollment fees for local community colleges for qualifying California residents. The provided link will take you to the application site. Keep in mind that the waiver will only cover enrollment fees; you may also want to consider applying for federal aid, such as Pell Grants, Perkins, and Stafford Loans.
