VA's Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) Service is deploying its electronic Virtual Assistant (e-VA) to the national stage. e-VA is an artificial intelligence platform, providing modern, streamlined and responsive customer service support to VR&E's Veterans. Importantly, it automates routine administrative activities for VR&E Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors (VRC) and staff.
One of VA's oldest benefits – Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (VR&E) – is now the Veteran Readiness and Employment Service. The service office will remain abbreviated VR&E, but the new name reemphasizes VBA's mission to encourage, promote and support transitioning and service-connected disabled Veterans’ employment goals.
e-VA is an artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant which allows service members and Veterans to schedule and reschedule VR&E appointments, text and email their VR&E counselor, and submit documentation.
On this National Rehabilitation Counselor Appreciation Day (March 22), Army Veteran David Norman shares his success story, how his Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC), Desiree Dial, made a difference in his life.
VBA's VR&E service held a Facebook Town Hall in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) on October 17. The event highlighted the many ways VR&E assists Veterans with service-connected disabilities and employment barriers with their careers – including preparation, job searching, and career maintenance.
October is particularly meaningful for VA’s Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) Service: it's a time to bring extra attention to National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and Spina Bifida Awareness Month.
