Rating Veterans Service Representative

None

To qualify for this position, applicants must meet all requirements by the closing date of this announcement.

Note: Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religions; spiritual; community; student; social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience.

The Office of Personnel Management's group coverage qualification standards, associated individual occupational requirements (IOR), and individual qualification standards covering white collar occupations in the Federal competitive service can be found: here

Specialized Experience:
To qualify, applicants must have one year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the next lower grade (GS-07) in the normal line of progression for the occupation in the organization analyzing evidence (medical, benefit and/or legal documents), interpreting and applying laws, regulations and official guidance sufficient to evaluate the adequacy of collected information to determine claimant eligibility for benefits and services. Specialized experience is defined as work that involves:
1. Interpreting and applying laws, regulations and policies in the management and processing of medical and benefit service claims;
2. Reviewing and analyzing medical and legal evidence to make determinations as to the entitlement and/or eligibility for benefits and services; and
3. Experience developing case file records and reports to support claim decisions.

Or applicants may substitute education for the experience required to qualify at the GS-09 level: A master's or equivalent graduate degree or 2 full years of progressively higher level graduate education leading to such a degree or LL.B. or J.D., if related may be substituted. Such education must demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to do the work in order to be substitutable.

Or Applicants may also combine education and experience to qualify. To calculate, first identify the percentage of required education you have earned (when substituting, you can only use graduate level education that you have earned). Then identify the percentage of required experience you possess. Add the two percentages. The total percentage must equal at least 100 percent to qualify. For example, an applicant who has 24 semester hours of graduate level education (i.e. 50% of graduate education required above the first 18 credits required) and 6 months of creditable specialized experience (i.e. 50% of the required experience) would equal 100% of the required experience for the position.
