Veteran Preference Points
Since the time of the Civil War, Veterans of the Armed Forces have been given some degree of preference in appointments to government jobs. In recognizing the sacrifices made by those serving in the Armed Forces, Congress enacted laws to prevent veterans seeking employment from being penalized because of the time spent in military service.
To qualify for 5 points, if you are a qualifying veteran or a non-service connected disabled veteran you may obtain preference by submitting as verification of eligibility a copy of your DD214 or 215 or a letter from the U.S. Dept. of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) indicating receipt of a non-service connected pension with application.
To qualify for 10 points , if you are a qualifying veteran with a service connected disability you must submit a copy of your DD 214/215 and a Veteran’s disability preference letter from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, unless the information is included in the DD Form 214/215. You may call 1-800-827-1000 to request a public employment preference letter.
We provide qualifying veterans and disabled veterans with preference in employment in accordance with Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) 408.225, 408.230, and 408.235; Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) 105-040-0010 and 105-040-0015.
