DFAS Careers for Americans with Disabilities

DFAS Careers for Americans with Disabilities

DFAS proudly supports the recruitment, hiring and retention of talented and qualified individuals with disabilities through the DFAS Careers for Americans with Disabilities (DCAD) program. Through the DCAD program, individuals with disabilities can explore different avenues to apply for DFAS jobs and receive reasonable accommodations in the application process.

How to apply

DFAS is committed to providing equal employment opportunity to individuals with disabilities, and individuals with a psychiatric, intellectual or severe physical disability can apply through our current job announcements or through the DCAD program. Individuals whose disability has caused a barrier to employment may be considered for DFAS jobs outside of the typical hiring process by applying through the DCAD program, even if there is not a specific job opening in mind. This streamlined application process requires a resume, transcripts (if applicable), questionnaire, and documentation furnished by a licensed medical professional or vocational rehabilitation facility (also known as a Schedule A certification letter).

Required Documents

When applying, provide these required documents:

  • Resume or Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Schedule A certification letter (proof of disability documentation) from a licensed medical professional; or vocational rehabilitation facility; or any federal, state, District of Columbia, or US territory agency that issues or provides disability benefits
  • DCAD Questionnaire (identifies jobs and geographic areas of interest)

Submit, if applicable

When applying, provide these documents as applicable:
  • DD-214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (submit if claiming Veteran’s Preference--provide copy 2 or 4, which includes type of discharge)
  • Veterans Affairs (VA) Disability Rating Letter
  • College/University Transcripts (must be provided if qualifying based upon education in lieu of experience and/or requesting consideration for a position that has a positive education requirement (e.g. Auditor, Accountant, Contract Specialist, etc.)
Eligible and interested individuals can submit their application and supporting documentation through a secure online ticketing system
