In the Vocational Rehabilitation Program, Priority Category 2 is defined as those individuals who have significant disabilities. This category includes those individuals who are presumed eligible for services due to the fact that they are SSI/SSDI recipients. The other criteria for this category is the individual have limitations in one or more functional capacities, require multiple vocational rehabilitation services, and those services will last over an extended period time.
