Who is eligible?
"Veteran" refers to a person who served in the Armed Forces of the United States on active duty, for reasons other than training, and was discharged under other than dishonorable conditions.
"Eligible Veteran" means:
A veteran who has served during a period of war
A veteran with a service-connected disability
The spouse of a veteran who cannot qualify for employment because of a total and permanent service-connected disability
The un-remarried widow or widower of a veteran who died of a service-connected disability.
How to claim Veterans' Preference?
To claim Veterans' Preference, eligible persons must submit a completed Walton County Clerk & Comptroller’s job application along with proof of veteran status to Human Resources before the closing date of the job posting. Proof of veteran status (DD form 214) can be attached to the job application or faxed to the attention of Human Resources at 850.892.8524.
Disabled Veterans must also provide certifying documents from the Department of Defense, Veterans Administration or the Division of Veterans Affairs that the veteran has a service-connected disability.
Spouses of Disabled Veterans must provide certification from the Department of Defense, Veterans Administration or the Division of Veterans Affairs that the veteran has a service-related disability; certificate of marriage to the veteran; a statement attesting that the spouse is still married to the veteran at the time of application; and proof that the disabled veteran cannot qualify for employment because of a service-connected disability.
