Preference points are awarded to qualified veterans and spouses of deceased or disabled veterans to add to their exam results. Points are awarded subject to the provisions of Minnesota Statute 197.455. To be eligible for veteran’s preference points you must be:
A citizen of the United States or a resident alien who has been separated under honorable conditions from any branch of the armed forces of the United States after having served on active duty for 181 consecutive days or by reason of disability incurred while serving on active duty, or who has met the minimum active duty requirement as defined by Code of Federal Regulations, title 38, section 3.12a, or who has active military service certified under section 401, Public Law 95-202. The active military service must be certified by the United States secretary of defense as active military service and a discharge under honorable conditions must be issued by the secretary; or be the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran (as defined above) or the spouse of a disabled veteran who because of the disability is not able to qualify.
The information you provide will be used to determine your eligibility for veteran's preference points. You are not required to supply this information, but we cannot award veteran’s points without it.
YOU MUST SUPPLY A COPY OF YOUR DD214. DISABLED VETERANS MUST ALSO SUPPLY FORM FL-802 OR AN EQUIVALENT LETTER FROM A SERVICE RETIREMENT BOARD. ELIGIBLE SPOUSES APPLYING FOR PREFERENCE POINTS MUST SUPPLY THEIR MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE, THE VETERAN'S DD214 AND FL-802 OR DEATH CERTIFICATE.
