What to expect

What to expect during the application process

 

During the application process, you will work with OOD staff, such as a Caseload Assistant and/or a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, to obtain proof of your disability and to discuss how your disability may affect your ability to successfully obtain, regain, or maintain employment.

 

You are welcome to bring anyone with you to appointments.  If you have family, friends, provider staff, case managers, or others you would like to bring with you to discuss your unique situation that is always helpful.

 

To help expedite the process please bring the following records with you to your appointment:

 

              School Records or Reports

              Medical Records

              Names / addresses / phone numbers of your doctors and others you have seen for treatment

              Psychological Records

              Hearing Records

              Vision Exam Reports

              Any other relevant reports

 

Please also be sure to bring the following information that will help us move your application forward:

 

              State Driver’s License or ID

              Social Security card

              Social Security Award Letter (SSI and/or SSDI)

 

You may go to the following pages and fill out these forms that will again help expedite the employment process:

 

              • Health Assessment questionnaire (Exhibit A)

              • Consent to Obtain and Release form (Exhibit B)

              • Rights of Persons with a Developmental Disability (Exhibit C)

              • Participant (Consumer) Acknowledgment form (Exhibit D)

 

We understand if you do not have any records or reports to bring with you. However, you will need to bring the names and contact information of any providers (such as doctors or counselors) who we may need to contact to request records or information.

 

Our agency strives to complete an eligibility decision for our applicants within 30 days of meeting with our staff. Your cooperation in helping us obtain needed records, providing us with up-to-date contact information, and attending scheduled appointments will help us make a timely decision on your case.
