Option 2 Questions & Answers

About Option 2 benefits

If you are unable to work due to your industrial injury, L&I or your self-insured employer may refer you to work with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC) to consider whether you may be eligible for retraining and, if so, develop a training plan for a new job. Your VRC will discuss with you the vocational process, the options available, and when and how you can elect the option you prefer.

Once the training plan is approved by L&I, there are 2 options:

  • Option 1 is to participate in the plan approved by L&I.
  • Option 2 allows you access to training funds to use for a plan you develop on your own. You have access to these funds for 5 years.
