Q. I was medically retired from the National Guard with 20 years of service. I was a federal technician in a dual-status position at the time and am currently receiving an annuity. I am considering applying for a position in the U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services and I was asked me if I wanted the veterans preference. Do I qualify for that and if so, for how many points? Also, are there any other issues I should be aware of?
A. To find out if you are eligible for veterans preference and, if so, how much, go to www.fedshirevets.gov/job/vetpref/index.aspx
