Employment for Individuals with Disabilities
The federal government has a special employment program for individuals with disabilities. Through this special program, the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) will accept applications from qualified disabled individuals for any job vacancy announced with the area of consideration listed as "All Status."
Candidates who are interested in learning about current Fiscal Service job opportunities have several options:
- Access electronic information via computer to obtain employment information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through USA Jobs.
- Contact the Rehabilitation Services Office. A counselor may assist in locating a vacancy that fits particular skills, abilities, and career goals.
- Use a touch-tone phone to dial 304-480-6144 to access a recorded listing of current job opportunities.
The Bureau of the Fiscal Service's All Status vacancies are typically posted for a minimum of 14 calendar days, although there may be some exceptions. Checking announcements once a week is normally sufficient to keep apprised of new or continuing vacancy announcements.
How to Apply
Applicants must submit a complete application package for each vacancy. Each package must include the following information:
- Application (e.g., Optional Application for Federal Employment, OF-612; Application for Federal Employment, SF-171; or résumé).
