THE USE OF VETERAN'S CREDITS
New York State Civil Service Law allows additional credits in examinations to successful candidates who have
filed for and established their status as wartime veterans or disabled wartime veterans. These credits are
granted at the time of establishment of the eligible list on the following basis:
Open-Competitive Exams
Promotional Exams
Wartime Veteran
5 points
2.5 points
Disabled Wartime Veteran
10 points
5 points
In most cases candidates may use their wartime veteran's or disabled wartime veteran’s credits to gain
appointment only once to a civil serviced position in New York State or local government, but effective January
1, 2014, veterans who previously used credits for appointment to a position in New York State or local
government AND, after his or her appointment, are subsequently classified by the Veterans Administration as
disabled during time of war, are eligible for an award of additional veteran credits. Such candidates are entitled
to 10 additional credits on civil service examinations, minus the number of credits already used for the prior
appointment.
The mere application for wartime veteran's credits does not obligate an applicant to use such credits.
Candidates who pass the examination will be notified of their standing on the eligible list with or without these
additional credits. At the time of appointment eligible candidates will be asked to sign forms using or
relinquishing these additional credits.
