Most Commonly Asked Questions:
How does the Selective Placement Program work?
Answer: When you submit your application for the Selective Placement Program, we will review your Schedule A eligibility and your qualifications for your desired position(s). If you meet all requirements, you will be placed into the Selective Placement Program. When a desired position becomes available at a location you have indicated, we will submit your application to that office for the hiring official's consideration.
Are all applicants with disabilities eligible for appointment under Schedule A (5 CFR 213.3102(u))?
Answer: No, the rule applies only to those individuals with severe physical disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, or intellectual disability. Eligibility for appointment under this authority is based on the severity of the impairment.
Since SSA provides disability benefits, what document(s) are considered proof of Schedule A eligibility for an individual receiving SSDI and/or SSI disability benefits?
Answer: A Benefit Verification Letter dated within the last 30 calendar days is considered proof of a disability. The letter must clearly indicate that the benefits received are for disability; and you must be in current pay.
Is a SSA "Ticket-to-Work" document acceptable as the sole proof of Schedule A eligibility?
Answer: No, a "Ticket-to-Work" is not acceptable proof of an applicant's current SSDI and/or SSI disability benefits payment status; therefore a "Ticket-to-Work" is not acceptable as proof of Schedule A eligibility.
