• 10 points veteran’s preference may be awarded to: 1. A veteran who served any time and who (1) has a present service-connected disability or (2) is receiving compensation, disability retirement benefits, or pensioner from the military or the Department of Veterans Affairs. Individuals who received a Purple Heart qualify as disabled veterans. 2. An unmarried spouse of certain deceased veterans, a spouse of a veteran unable to work because of a service-connected disability, and 3. A mother of a veteran who died in service or who is permanently and totally disabled.
Applicants claiming 5 points must submit a copy of their DD-214. Applicants claiming 10 points must submit an official statement from the Veterans Administration or armed service dated within the past 6 months which confirms their qualification to receive 10 points preference. Spouses or widows must also submit evidence of marriage and, as applicable, veteran’s death.
