After I submit my application to DVR, how long does it take DVR to make an eligibility decision?

(1) DVR makes an eligibility decision as soon as enough information is available, but no longer than sixty days after you complete the application requirements.
(2) If DVR does not have enough information to determine your eligibility within sixty days, you and a DVR counselor must agree to:
(a) Extend the eligibility period to collect additional information or records; or
(b) Conduct a trial work experience or extended evaluation, if a DVR counselor is not certain whether VR services will enable you to achieve an employment outcome because of the severity of your disability
(3) If you do not agree to extend the eligibility period, DVR must close your case service record.
