NY Voters Approve Veterans' Benefit
by news


New York voters have approved a state constitutional amendment to ensure additional civil service credit to disabled military veterans appointed or promoted to a civil service position.

The constitution gives veterans additional credit on civil service exams of 5 points for an original appointment and 2.5 points for a promotion.

Disabled veterans get double those points.

However, veterans have been eligible for only one grant of additional credit.

The amendment creates an exception for veterans who are certified disabled after getting the initial, smaller veterans' credit, pushing them up to 10 points altogether for either an initial appointment or promotion.
