Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
What is Veteran's Credit and how do I use it?

ANSWER:
VETERANS' PREFERENCE CREDIT of 10 points will be added to the final passing grade in any open competitive examination if you are an honorably discharged veteran who served in the Armed Forces of the United States:
a. During a declared war or
b. During the period April 28, 1952 through July 1, 1955 or
c. For more than 180 consecutive days, other than for training, any part of which occurred after January 31, 1955, and before October 15, 1976 or
d. In a campaign or expedition for which a campaign medal or expeditionary medal has been authorized and awarded.

This also applies to the spouse of such person who, while engaged in such service was wounded, disabled or crippled and thereby permanently prevented from engaging in any remunerative occupation, and also to the widow or widower of any such person who died or was killed while in such service. A DD214, Certificate of Discharge or Separation from Active Duty, or other official documents issued by the branch of service are required as verification of eligibility for Veterans' preference. If you are unable to provide any documentation at the time of filing, the 10 points will be withheld until such time as it is provided.
