    If I had to take a guess, he means that they need those items with your current address to prove that you live in your current address. Which needs to be in one of the 5 boroughs or surrounding counties.

    There was an issue with the Philly fire dept around the time of the IAFF convention.. Grass roots protests in regards to the mayors appeal of the unions contract.. Long story short, very strict policy, no pictures, can't identify yourself as a FF. no cell phone use at work, etc.

    Straight from my inv he asked if i was claiming any points i told him residency, then gave my 3 forms, w2(june2010-july2011, check account, credit card bills. He then said they also require a bill in my name showing i still live in that address. My friend who went to the 8am intake has to provide the same documents. I also overheard another inv ask for them next to me, obv the candidate wasn't aware either. All you need is some type of mail or bill with your address on it. Ok grabbed the actual paper for you guys, word for word, "current residence*-3 documents proving current residence from the list above REFLECTING ACTIVITY within the past 60 days"

    These are different if you were under 21 during that 2010/2011 period correct? I was 18 at the time and didn't have my own checking account or credit card, but I do have the w-2 forms. Anyone else in that position? I'd like to get everything figured out sooner than later. I remember hearing a notarized letter could work in lieu of those things if you were under 21, along with a hs diploma from a city school or something.

    Yeah I'm in the same spot as you except I fortunately did have a banking account in 2010-2011. I'm giving in my statements from those dates, w-2 from those dates and my high school transcript and letter of graduation. If I understand the packet correctly it states that if you're 21 or younger at the time of taking the test, you only need to provide one document from the list above and one from the list below, A total of two. If you have your W-2 from 2010 and 2011 and a High school diploma and transcript you should be alright. Though if you could conjure anything else up it really could not hurt you.

    EDIT: I'm bringing the notarized letter from my parents as well.


    Question, would someone like myself and mocon337 need a detailed earnings statement if we bring the letter saying our parents supported us after high school? I've only worked part time jobs since high school and I'm fulfilling the 6-months full time work with my college credits. I've heard only negative things about the social security office so I'm trying to avoid it but if need be I will take a run down there.

    My time isn't anywhere close, but seeing how the investigators are asking for billing statements with a NYC address proving that you're a resident, what happens if you get all your bills emailed to you....

    This part confuses me, mail with that address you lived at in the city showing activity in past 60 days or just whatever your current address is in the past 60 days. I'm goin' call candidate investigations tomorrow and hopefully get an answer on this. I need a friggin drink now, I didn't even want to leave Queens. I only did it because my GF is born and raised on LI. To the single guys out there, stay single. Love makes you do stupid things.

    The application says NOTHING about summons, they just want arrests or vehicle infractions , anyone not have their license at intake interview or will I really be the first one? I figure as long as I have it by appointment, if that happens *crosses fingers*, i should be fine

    What the application or packet says vs what they ask from you is slightly different. I'm not sure if its based on investigators, but as of today 3 seperate investigators asked for the current residency stuff. Also they have you make copies of any dispositions when you're in the auditorium. I don't have any summonses or arrests so i can't tell you more about this. But this residency thing they were definitely requiring it today. Its simple 3 bills showing the address you claimed resident points on within 60 days

    Pretty sure you're fine. I think its just a few bills from your current address.

    I claimed my residency points to my old apt in the Bronx when I lived there in college with a few buddies. Since I graduated, I moved to queens. My current address is not the same address I lived in from 2010-11. This won't be a problem will it. I am getting nervous however they can't penalize someone for moving. Can anyone put their two cents on this I am sure many others are in the same boat.

    I had my intake also, claimed residency, and used my college credits as my qualifier. Here is the full list of what I brought and the investigator said I had everything they needed:

    SS card (original)
    HS diploma (original)
    Birth Certificate (original or certified copy)
    W2 forms 2007-2012
    Bank Statements for the residency period
    CC Statements for the residency period
    college transcript (still in the sealed envelope DONT BREAK THE SEAL)
    NYS drivers abstract
    one recent pay stub
    5 year (2007-2011 since 2012 wasnt ready yet) detailed earning statement from the ss office ($25)
    $75 money order
    a copy of the 1 summons I received & a disposition from the court

    My investigator told me since the summons was over 10 years old, and dismissed it wouldnt have came up on my finger prints, so take that for what it's worth.

    the recent pay stub is to verify the address you've been providing as your current address is valid. If you claimed residency and can provide the documents for the time period we are required to, YOU ARE FINE.

    I suggest to get to the intake interview early. They do their best to process you in the order you came and it goes quickly if you're there first. Make sure you have the $75 money order and that your background packet is completely filled out.

    Also, it's good to get there early because they make copies of all your documents themselves. For some unknown reason, they don't accept outside copies. They'll make all the copies for you and getting there early avoids waiting in line for the copy machine.

    Once you meet your investigator and he or she looks over all the documents and your packet, you'll get a sheet listing all the required documents and the investigator checks off what you brought and notes what you'll still need, if anything.

    You said you needed to get a court doc for the summons - was the summons something you got printed for? The applicant packet doesnt ask for anything about summons docs and I dont think open container summons comes up on a fingerprint check. Just looking to get some info

    This process is such a pain in the rear end. Just got off the phone with my investigator. I requested a copy of my college transcript to be sent to them on March 9th but my investigator said she has not received it. Im requesting another one to be mailed to them.

    Does anyone know if CID will let us know if we are good to go on the investigation portion once everything is done? or is it completely up to us to follow up with them? I just dont want to become a pain in their *** when im calling every 5 days to make sure they received everything i send them.

    I was not printed for my summons, it was a $20 fine (since it was dismissed I didn't pay though) from what I remember.

    I believe you have to keep on top of them to find out if your background is all finished. Keep in mind though, you want to walk the line between covering yourself and being a pain in the a**. It's a fine line lol

    Yeah im not trying to get on their bad side. Its just frustrating having to rely on the post office to make sure my stuff gets to them. I tried giving them an unopened official transcript personally but they said they want it mailed from the school.

    They'll understand why you're calling especially if they requested more info from you. As long as you're respectufl and courteous on the phone, they shouldn't have a problem with a phone call once a week until everything is in their records.

All of that stuff doesn't go away once you start reserving food stamps or receiving help from the government. Don’t get me wrong, there are scammers out there who are taking advantage of the government but don't assume that all are. Yes, you are right; this job is the help and not judge.
    After a few years on this job one sees a lot to be frustrated with. All forms of public assistance, welfare and food stamps are extremely helpful to a lot of people in dire straights, but it is rife with scammers. If I see someone with an iPhone 5 on welfare, it makes me wonder.....maybe they did buy it before they hit hard times, but now they have the money to keep up a data plan? Being poor doesn't mean you wear rags, but I've been poor, didn't opt for EBT even though we qualified, and I didn't buy the latest gear. I see Cadillacs and Range Rovers in NYCHA parking lots. I see people check out in the grocery store, pay with EBT, then take out cash to buy beer and other things that are not covered by EBT. if you have money for beer, you don't need public assistance to buy groceries. SNAP, EBT, welfare, they make life livable for a lot of people, but it is rife with abuse and doesn't do enough to encourage people to move onwards and upwards. The system is very flawed.

    All of the above does not excuse the lewd and thoughtless comments of the former EMT Cassano. He displayed a total lack of judgement and compassion. While I know what it is to see rampant abuse of the system, I also know we do a lot of good and you just have to deal with those few that use 911 as a ride to the ER, or call for an ambulance to be "checked out" when they know they don't want to go to the hospital. That's not an emergency.

    Every case that one finds frustrating is never a reason to denigrate entire groups, that's what makes someone a bigot. Twitter isn't a journal, it isn't a place to vent. I'm glad to see this ***** resign. There is no place for that persona on this job.
