    Plz note* driving license and passport have my current address, could that be used?
    I have a similar situation. Never lived anywhere else but never had a need for a credit card. I have Several W'2s and my bank statement. Not that they are anywhere near my list number but Figured I would get it figured out now.

    I'm currently in the interview process for a civilian job with the city, specifically the FDNY (I figured it couldn't hurt to work for the dept. as a civilian while awaiting my shot). Some of the paperwork states stipulations for pay. According to the city, there are two types of employees: civil servants and civilians. Regardless of classification, you can always roll over your time that you worked for the city. But, if you roll between civil servant positions (ie: DOS, NYPD, FDNY) your pay begins at the lowest step. If you roll from civilian to civil servant, the same holds true. Civilian position salary is determined by education and experience. I'm sorry if this is long-winded, but I hope I was of some help.

    Also about those residency credits. I'm scared that they might take mine away. I claimed them but i only have a couple of documents to support that. I've been in the military since 2007 and will be getting out in June 2013. I've been told from other military folks that as long as someone joined the military from NYC, they should be able to count your points since NYC is your "home of record". I'm not sure how true this is.

    Edit: Anyone in the Army stationed in Fort Campbell, KY that also took FDNY exam 2000?

Anyone have any insight?
    sanitation , corrections or nypd at top pay that transfer to fdny will start at bottom pay when entering the fdny.

    Sanitation, corrections and nypd time counts up front when going to fdny. Meaning if the retirement is 20 years.....if u have 3 years on santaitaion and transfer to fdny then u can do 17 years and retire.

    I know these are facts as I found out by writing to the fdny pension bureau and by asking them back in 08 when I was suppose to get hired from exam 6019

    Hey guys, first post for me

    Just want to say congratulations to all the 103'ers in the house. Looking forward to meeting all of you down at the rock for CPAT training.

    Does anyone know the status of the priority hires case in court? My father, a current New York City Firefighter, told me that it's still going through appeals. He believes it will continue to go through appeals until it reaches supreme court. Does anyone else have any insight on this? It seems to be that a lot of guys posting here will be effected by whether or not the priority hires list goes through for the next class. If the case is still in appeals, they can't hire from it, correct?

    You maintain a 3 - 4 percent body fat percentage wow ?! I have natural bodybuilding friends who undergo caloric deficit diets for months just to get that low and only for a day in a natural bodybuilding competition. Once you hit 1% - 2% you stop functioning correctly and once you hit 0% you die. Be Careful.

    almostthere is a priority hire. It would be nice if he gives us in update on the priority hiring process since he is getting plenty of questions answered on this forum by the OC guys. It's always good to give back some love.

    I'm almost at top pay... but really struggling with the decision. I'm very happy where I am now, only problem is I know all it takes is a new boss to be miserable like a lot of people. Plus, i'm taking the test this summer.. I don't know if that helps or hurts my cause. I'll obviously be transferred, but make more $$, it would cut my salary in half. No idea what i'd do if I got the call tomorrow.

    Hey what's up?

    First post for me as well, just want to say thanks for all the amazing information that can be found through here especially from those going through the process right now and those on the job already. I got a 102 and I am in the low 900's, very upsetting to hear them only getting to the 103's for this initial send out of packets but all will come in time.

    I've been training real hard for a long time now, 5-6 mile run every other day at about 8:30/mile and I can do the 1.5 in 10:30, and can do about 100 push ups/2 mins and 100 sit-ups/2 mins, working on really getting the pull ups up to speed so I don't end up in fat camp.

    I can say as of right now I will never have respect for the priority hires. Even if they get into the July class and bump my time back even further I will not respect them when I get in after them. They do not deserve all of the privileges they are receiving. Most probably won't have what it takes anyway and I bet many will take the lump sum of cash instead of the job. I hope they get held up by the appeals courts as many of us have all gotten held up for years.

    Congrats to those who are starting the process and are almost there, looking forward to being in your shoes soon and seeing you on the other side of the academy.

    Well, its a personal decision, like you said. And also like you said, all it takes is a new boss to change everything. FWIW new captains are taught in BMOC to crush sergeants... the job sees sergeants as the new target since they can't outright target cops for quotas anymore. Sorry to turn this into a PD bash but its just something to consider.

    That being said, good luck to all who have received investigation packages!

    On a side note, does anyone know if step-fathers count toward legacy credit?

    I don't try to maintain it at that percent AT ALL, I just keep a balanced diet along with ALOT of working out and running. My metabolism does the rest. It's a big sacrifice though. I'll tell you this much, I have over 5 years I don't eat candy, drink soda nor eat anything from fast food restaurants lol.
