The vocational rehab company, AAATakeCharge, is using a new policy with Social Security that makes it much easier to get reimbursement for work-related expenses. You can get your therapist/doctor/nurse or any other licensed health professional to vouch that you need to use your personal vehicle to get to work, such as if public transportation is an issue. You get reimbursed 53 cents per mile (up to the maximum amount you have been approved to receive in incentives for continuing to work).

They estimate 90% of the clients will qualify for using their personal vehicle as an "impairment related work expense." This way, you get approved automatically in the future for reimbursement without having to submit gas receipts, etc., as long as you continue to work.

In my case, it is easy since there is no public transportation in my rural area.
