STATUS Eligible

Are you STATUS eligible?

You may be considered as a STATUS eligible for merit promotion announcements if you are:
·     A current Federal civilian employee in the competitive service on a permanent career or career-conditional appointment
·     A reinstatement eligible.
What is Reinstatement Eligible?
This refers to those individuals who previously held a career or career-conditional appointment in the competitive service.  There is no time limit on reinstatement eligibility for those who either have veterans’ preference or who acquired career tenure   after 3 years. Others will generally have 3 years of reinstatement eligibility.
How to determine if you are or were in the Competitive service?
Review your SF-50 “Notification of Personnel Action.” Check the section “Position Data,” block number 34 (“Position Occupied”).  Competitive service is indicated by a “1” in that block.
Review your SF-50 “Notification of Personnel Action.” Check the section “Employee Data,” block number 24 (“Tenure”).  If you have a “1”or “2” in that block you are/were on a career or career-conditional appointment.

SF-50 Summary:  For status eligibles, Block 34 will show "1” (competitive service), and Block 24 will show either “1” or “2” (career or career-conditional appointment).
