Military Spouse Hiring Preference Expanded

National VFW - 9/3/2017

On August 8, 2017, the United States Office of Personnel Management implemented a VFW-supported provision in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, which expanded the time military spouses are eligible for federal hiring preferences following a permanent change of station. This authority allows federal agencies to noncompetitively appoint eligible spouses to fill vacancies. Before this change hiring preference for military spouses was limited to a two-year period following a service member’s permanent change of station. Read the memo reguarding the recent change. Learn more about hiring preferences for military spouses and surviving spouses.
