DFAS Hire a Hero Program

DFAS Hire a Hero Program

DFAS is committed to providing employment opportunities for men and women who have honorably served on behalf of our nation. To support this commitment, we are currently using an Applicant Supply File that includes 10 point veteran's preference eligible applicants. After a preliminary qualification determination is made, we place applicants in this file as a match for all of our specialties (series) and grades for which they are likely qualified. As vacancies occur in these specialties and grades, we can use this file and these possible matches as a means of recruitment using streamlined hiring authorities.

There is also a block to ask a question related to program. At the bottom, choose each file you wish to submit with your application (see below list of documents).

Veteran-Specific Hiring Programs

Collapse All Expand All

VRA is a special hiring authority to appoint eligible veterans without competition to positions at any grade level up through GS-11. Veterans are then converted to career or career-conditional appointment after two years of successful service. You must meet the basic qualifications for the position.

The Veterans’ Employment Opportunity Act of 1998 allows qualified veterans to apply under merit promotion procedures when the agency is recruiting from outside the Department of Defense. You must be among the best qualified candidates to be referred for the position.

A veteran with a compensable service-connected disability of 30 percent of more (by way of notice from the Veterans Administration) may be non-competitively appointed. Eligible disabled veterans can receive a noncompetitive, temporary appointment of more than 60 days or a term appointment.  Then they may be converted to a career or career-conditional appointment at any time during the temporary or term appointment based on successful performance.

Vaccination Injunction Notice:
To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a Federal job announcement includes the requirement that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to E.O. 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Federal agencies may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing other workplace safety protocols, such as protocols related to masking, physical distancing, testing, travel, and quarantine.
