Consumer Documentation Requirements

Updated: December 2018

As a state and federally funded program, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) must collect certain documentation from consumers receiving DVR services. The information you provide is used to confirm your involvement and progress with DVR services. DVR will remind you when different information is needed and will help you figure out the best way to get it.

You may send DVR the requested information by fax, text message, email, mail (in a self-addressed envelope from DVR), or sometimes verbally either in-person or by phone.
