Thirty Percent or More Compensable Veterans

Thirty percent or more compensable disabled veterans, if
qualified, may be noncompetitively appointed to positions

(OPM). Compensable veterans also have
preference for hiring from competitive recruitment

the performance of the full range of duties of the position.
Once certified that the disabled veteran is successful in
the position, he/she is converted to a career-conditional
