counselor: If you have a permanent disability, this is the person that will
help you develop a strategy for returning to work. This person will evaluate you
and provide necessary counseling.
Vocational rehabilitation: If
you are permanently unable to do your usual job, and your employer does not
offer other work, you may qualify for this benefit. It may include job placement
counseling, retraining and a vocational rehabilitation maintenance allowance.
