- VETERANS CREDITS
If you are making a claim for veteran’s credits with this application, fill out the Application for Veterans Credits on our webpage or in the Personnel Office. Be sure you read the following information very carefully:
Any claim for additional credits as a disabled or non-disabled war veteran for the examination should be made with this application. If you are claiming veteran’s credits, you must answer all questions regarding veterans status (A-D). Failure to do so, accurately and completely, may result in a denial of your claim.
If you are claiming credits as a disabled war veteran, you must, in addition to meeting the requirements as indicated by a “YES” answer to questions A-C and a “NO” answer to question D, be certified by the Veterans Administration as being entitled to receive payments for a service-connected disability rated ten (10) percent or more, incurred during a “Time of War” as indicated in question C.
Persons claiming credits as disabled war veterans will be contacted by this agency for additional information as necessary.
All claims and grants of veterans credits are tentative and must be verified through submission of form DD-214 and other related documents, as necessary, prior to the establishment of the eligible list. You will be advised as to which documents must be produced by you for this verification. All statements you make in support of your claim for additional credits are subject to investigation and substantiation by this agency. In the event of subsequent disclosure of any material misstatement or fraud in this claim, your appointment may be rescinded and you may be disqualified from further appointment on which you have been granted additional credits as a result of such material misstatement or fraud.
