AND ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEMBERS:
The appointing authorities for Veterans
Recruitment Appointment (VRA), the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of
1998 (VEOA), and 30 Percent or More Disabled Veterans, as well as all claims of
veterans’ preference for employment, require proof of active duty
service. Proof of creditable active duty is usually demonstrated by
submitting a DD214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, with
your application. For active duty members who have not yet received a
DD214, the Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) to Hire Heroes Act (5 U.S.C.,
Chapter 21, Section 2108a) allows you to furnish a “certification” of your
active service. A “certification” is any written document from the armed
forces that certifies the service member is expected to be discharged or
released from active duty service in the armed forces under honorable
conditions not later than 120 days after the date the “certification” is
submitted. Agencies are required to accept, process, and grant tentative
veterans’ preference to those active duty service members who submit a
certification along with their job application materials. The
“certification” must be signed by, or by direction of, the adjutant, personnel
officer, or commander of your unit or higher headquarters and must indicate
when your terminal leave will begin (if applicable), your rank, dates of active
duty service, the type of discharge and character of service (i.e.
honorable). Your preference and/or appointment eligibility will be
verified prior to appointment. If you are claiming veterans’ preference
for employment or are applying for consideration under the VRA, VEOA, or 30
Percent or More Disabled Veterans appointment authorities and fail to provide a
DD214 or valid “certification” of service with your initial application, you
will not be afforded veterans’ preference and/or will be found ineligible for
consideration. Military members may be appointed before the effective
date of their military retirement/separation if member is on terminal leave.
