You must also meet the eligibility requirements for veterans preference OR a special hiring authority for veterans to be referred under this announcement: Veterans Preference: Agencies have broad authority under law to hire from any appropriate source of eligibles including special appointing authorities. Veterans preference gives eligible veterans preference in certain hiring actions, such as when considering VRA candidates. Only veterans discharged or released from active duty in the armed forces under honorable conditions (i.e., with an honorable or general discharge) are eligible for veterans preference. There are three types of preference eligibles: Disabled, regardless of the rating; Non-Disabled; and Sole survivorship preference Preference eligible candidates are divided into five basic groups: CPS – Disability rating of 30% or more (10 points) CP – Disability rating of at least 10% but less than 30% (10 points) XP – Disability rating less than 10% (10 points) TP – Preference eligibles with no disability rating (5 points) SSP – Sole Survivorship Preference (0 points) For more information on the types of veterans preference, visit: https://www.usajobs.gov/Help/working-in-government/unique-hiring-paths/veterans/???????. Special Hiring Authorities for Veterans: Below is a list of special hiring authorities designed specifically for veterans. For more information, visit: https://www.usajobs.gov/Help/working-in-government/unique-hiring-paths/veterans/???????. Veterans Recruitment Act (VRA): VRA allows for the appointment of eligible veterans without competition from non veterans. This hiring authority can be used for positions up to GS-11 or equivalent. Veterans are hired under excepted appointments to positions that are otherwise found in the competitive service. After the individual satisfactorily completes 2 years of service, the veteran must be converted non-competitively to a career or career-conditional appointment. Eligibility under the VRA hiring authority applies to any of the following veterans: Disabled veterans; or Veterans who served in active duty in the Armed Forces during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized; or Veterans who, while serving on active duty in the armed forces, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces Service Medal was awarded; or Recently separated veterans (within 3 years). In addition, veterans must be separated from the Armed Forces under honorable or general discharge. 30 Percent or More Disabled Veterans: The 30 Percent or More Disabled Veterans authority enables the appointment of an eligible candidate to any position for which he or she is qualified without competition. Unlike the VRA, there is no grade-level limitation. Initial appointments are time-limited, lasting more than 60 days; however, individuals can be non-competitively converted to a permanent status at any time during the time-limited appointment. Eligibility applies to the following categories: Disabled veterans who were retired from active military service with a service-connected disability rating of 30 percent or more; or Disabled veterans rated by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as having a compensable service-connected disability of 30 percent or more Military Spouse Appointing Authority: You may be eligible for an appointment under the Military Spouse Appointing Authority if you are a spouse of: 1) an active duty member of the armed forces; 2) a service member who is 100% disabled due to a service-connected injury; or 3) a deceased service member of the armed forces. Each of these categories has different eligibility criteria that must be met. Individuals applying for consideration under this authority MUST provide the applicable supporting documentation (e.g., documentation verifying marriage, copy of your spouse’s active military orders, DD-214, copy of a statement from the Department of Veterans Affairs or a branch of the military certifying the service member’s service-connected disability rating, DD-1300, etc.). You are no longer eligible if you remarry.
