When DVR is operating under an order of selection, individuals are selected for services as follows:
(1) At the time you are determined eligible for VR services, a DVR counselor establishes a priority for services category based on the severity of your disability.
(2) As resources become available for DVR to serve additional individuals, DVR selects names from the waiting list in the priority category being served at that time.
(3) The priority categories include:
(a) Priority category 1 -- Individuals with most severe disabilities;
(b) Priority category 2 -- Individuals with severe disabilities; and
(c) Priority category 3 -- Individuals with disabilities.
(4) Within a priority category, the date you applied for VR services determines the order in which you are selected from the waiting list.
