    I wonder at what point on the list they will start to have people lose residency who misunderstood the requirements.

    That step started. When you are scheduled for your intake interview you'll have to produce proof. If you're unable to, you lose those 5 points, are given a new list number (probably outside hiring range) and sent back to your new place much further back in line.

    Reasons like this one are why 700 people have been contacted to begin the process when very few from the OC list may be needed. Again, do the math: Pool of 490 from the quota list. Lets say 200 from the EMS list and 700+ OC. If you add in a few people who are bound to recycle, you have a pool in the neighborhood of 1450+/-. They'll manage a class of 300 from that, easily.

    Thanks I will have to digest those numbers when I am more alert. I appreciate the reply.

    I've been through the process before for 2043 and 6019, but one thing I was always unsure of is whether guys have to prove they still reside in NYC. I know they need to prove their residence for a certain time period, but do they have to prove they still there?

    For my interview I needed proof from June 2010- July 2011 and then some type of mail within the last 60 or 90 days (cant remember) with my name on it. I guess that is to prove I'm still living there. So yes, I guess you still need proof that you're living there.

    See this is what is confusing some of us. I have since moved from that apt. Still in the city, but to a different area. People move. Get priced out if renting, etc. I cannot see how they could require you to be in that same residence.

    I mentioned this before, but I feel like that piece of mail is to show that you live in either the 5 boroughs or surrounding counties, which is indeed required.

    You are correct. I dont currently live in the same place that i lived back in 2010-2011. The investigator just wants prove that you currently live in one of the 5 boroughs so i had to provide them with some documents that reflect activity within the last 60 days from my current address.

    If anyone on here can comment on how strict they are with the residency credits I would appreciate it. I am a bit nervous about that only because I am from long island but lived in the Bronx during the time frame for college. Because I was a broke college kid, didn't have all bills in my name but split them up between everyone (cable was in mine). Right now I am just gathering all the evidence I can get. I think I have enough and by dad, who is OTJ says I will be fine but still a bit nervous. Does anyone here know anyone personally who was denied the points?

    That's what I did.

    What I'm curious about is if you have to still be a city resident to get the points, or it's just a matter of proving your residency during that year period.

    And to clarify, I know they are strict, especially when it's apparent someone is trying to fake the credits. But I want to know if they understand that sometimes a college students circumstances may be different from others as far as documents go.

    my investigator stapled all my residency documents together and had the recent pay stub showing my address kept separately. In fact, due to my billing cycle I actually gave her an extra month on the required period, and she gave me back the statement saying she didn't need it. I don't think this proof of a recent address has anything to do with the 5 points

    I would think you still have to be a resident to get the points.

    I doubt it, but I wouldn't know personally, which is why I'm curious.

    Unless they pulled a switcheroo you will NOT have to be a resident to get your 5 points if you claimed them. If you lived there June 2010-July 2011 or whatever they asked and you can prove then thats it. They can't say during the filing period one thing than change it 18 months later, especially in these times

    While my investigator did ask for three pieces of proof to establish my residency of the last 60 days, it was NOT required that these documents established my residency in NYC. For whatever reason, they just want to know where are are living now.

    For whatever reason? In order to be hired you must live in 1 of the 11 approved counties. Even if you are claiming NYC resident credit for the exam you still need to show current residency.

    You do not need to show current residency in NYC if you are going through investigation right now. You need to live in one of the 11 approved counties by time of hire, but they were explicit when speaking to my group at investigations that they are not asking anyone to move who does not live in NYC since they still expect "few if any" (their words) candidates from the OC list to be in the July class.

    Was curious about the residency credits. Started my job back in 2004, but never updated my w-2 forms to the new address. Wasn't a problem as i was living with my aunt, and she still lives there. Even though my old address was a city address, would that be sufficient enough for the credits.
