Independent Living services may be provided to individuals who are not currently able to work because of the effects of service-connected disabilities. Provided services are limited to those required to improve independence at home and in the community.
Each Individualized Independent Living Plan is personalized to meet the individual's specific needs. In general, independent living services cannot last more than 24 months. Services may be extended if certain criteria are met.
Individuals who are pursuing employment goals may also receive independent living services if these services are required to support the achievement of their vocational objective.
