A number of opportunities exist for veterans in Maryland including point preference for state employment. The appointing authority for skilled and professional appointments will award a credit of ten points on any selection test to:
- an eligible veteran;
- the spouse of an eligible veteran who has a service connected disability; or
- the surviving spouse of a deceased eligible veteran.
A credit of two additional points will be given to any veteran with a service connected disability or former POW who is applying for a skilled or professional appointment. Current state employees and veterans who are convicted of a crime after being discharged from or completing military service are not eligible for this credit.
