Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 (VEOA)

This flexibility gives preference eligibles and other certain eligible veterans access to jobs that otherwise are only available to status employees. In VEOA appointments, preference eligible and other veterans are not afforded any preference, but they are allowed to compete for job opportunities open to status candidates outside the recruiting agency. A VEOA eligible who is selected will be given a career or career-conditional appointment.

VEOA eligibility applies to the following veterans:

  • A preference eligible or Veteran separated from the Armed Forces after 3 or more years of continuous active service under honorable conditions or who were released shortly before completing a three year tour.
