FORM RSA-113: QUARTERLY CUMULATIVE CASELOAD REPORT

REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS




General Purpose

Form RSA-113 provides for the quarterly collection of information on persons with disabilities in their rehabilitation process at State vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies. Data from Form RSA-113 are used to track trends of persons applying for VR services, determinations of eligibility made by State VR agencies, identification of persons with significant disabilities, individualized plan for employment (IPE) development, service implementation, and program outcomes. These trends are key program measurements that provide a general assessment of the State-Federal VR program and its accomplishments.


Other uses for the Form RSA-113 data are to identify technical assistance needs of specific State VR agencies, to develop RSA's budget requests, and to provide program information for the Office of Management and Budget, the Department of Education and the United States Congress. The Social Security Administration also uses these data in computing reimbursement payments to State VR agencies. Caseload data from Form RSA-113 are an integral part of RSA's Annual Report to the President and to the Congress on Federal Activities Related to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as Amended.
