    I told my investigator that some of these requirements will be impossible for many people, almost to the point where it seems as if there's some sort of conscious effort to take away points from as many people as possible. She said she agrees and that she's glad she's not the one who made the rules on this one. Even NYPD was'nt this riduculous with residency. Very few people would actually have 12 months worth of bills stuffed in the closet from 3 years ago; and something tells me that they know that. But hey...
    In the least selfish way possible i hope alot of people cant prove residency lol, except all of you guys of course

    I think that there will be some oc candidates in the July class, why process over 700 people if your applicant pool was already upto the desired number. While I don't think they will come close to 720 on the oc list this summer at least people in the top 100 should be physically,mentally and financially prepared. My list is low 200s and I honestly don't think I will be reached because all the guys in the low numbers are less likely to differ. All I can do is hope there was a lot of 18 year olds that have to wait

    Because real life doesn't always go as planned. From what I've heard I think they expected to get 2 full classes off of 2500, but that's obviously not the case. It would be a travesty to start the academy with less than a full class, so they will canvas way more than needed to be sure that they have enough.

    Shouldn't matter much to you guys, you're going to have to get processed sooner or later.

    As far as residency goes, I used my W-2's, my bank account and my college loan billing statements. I don't believe you necessarily need to have utility bills. It would be impossible for me to prove that, being both of the places I've lived, my utilities were included in the rent cost.

    I also had my tax returns going back to 2009 and credit card billing statements. For my banking and credit card statements, I called my bank and they sent me the statements for that time period. Same for my college loan billing statements.

    For those that are worried, one of the documents I have listing the acceptable forms of proof says something like 'can accept other documents in lieu of...' Or something of that nature. Meaning if you have legitimate forms of proof, they can chose to accept it.

    I simply take it one step at a time, especially with the last several years, I don't expect anything until I'm actually there, participating in that step of the process.

    As far as how many people it will take, I think there are too many variables to tell how the numbers will come out. Just be ready for when they come calling.

    Lol...That thought DID cross my mind, but only for a second of course. I was just thinking of how many people will be losing their spots; and its gonna be quite a number. My investigator told me that EVERYONE she interviewed raised an issue with residency, asking tons of questions about it, even myself.

    But of course we're raising questions. These people want you to prove residency TWICE. First to retain the 5 points, which is when u have to show every piece of goddamn mail youve ever recieved in your entire life, and second to prove CURRENT residence before appointment, which can be achieved by simply showing any 3 pieces of mail recieved within the last 60 days which REFLECT ACTIVITY at that residence. Its mind boggling to say the least, and definetely redundant.

    Like i said, the only thing that saved my *ss was that checking account i just happened to have with Chase from 09-11. Without that, i wouldve been on the Sanitation website today lol.

    I wish I had the problem of proving residency, if only Yonkers was a boro....

    Theyll be asking for way more than that little packet led us to believe. I showed her the paper with the items listed pertaining to what we should bring. She looked at it for like 10 seconds and said "Yeah, i dont know why they send you guys this". Then she asked me for like twice as many things. So save everything man. This residency stuff is serious. Guess they must have a bloody history with past candidates and residency fraud...

    Now would be the time to get all your stuff in order to prove you lived where you did during that period. I learned this stuff when I was getting together necessary documents to get a mortgage. Getting bank statements and stuff like that only gets harder as time goes on, and you don't want to be trying to take care of that stuff on a tight deadline. Sort it out to the best of your ability now, put everything in a folder and put it away. You'll thank yourself later.

    There were a lot of people like that the day I went to the intake interview, caught off guard with all the documents being requested. Did any of you get the sheet with all the stuff they can ask you for, from your investigator? That sheet is huge and there is a lot of stuff listed on there.

    Maybe thats what she meant about the list. Lots of people are gonna lose residency. Why do you say people at home have it the easiest? I would think it would be harder since they have less stuff in their name?

    Why don't you go to the source? The NOE never lies.

    Yes, but you don't need all of them. You need 3 proofs of residency, any of the 3 on that list will work. There are sections on that big sheet, and in each section, you need a certain amount of each. You notice that they mark all the ones you have, and all the ones you need. Then at the end, they have you initial that big sheet next to the documents you have provided. We listed the documents you needed somewhere in this thread before. Maybe you missed it, hope you can get your paperwork together. Good luck

    Yeah thought of that after I posted. But still am not 100% confident in the answer, because it it worded differently every line.

    Candidates applying for New York City Residency Credit must provide any three of the following:
    • Mortgage in the candidate’s name valid during the 12-month period between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011
    • Cable bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
    • Telephone bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
    • Gas, electric or water utility bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
    • Checking or savings account statements for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
    • Credit card statements for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011 and
    • W-2 form(s) from the candidate’s employer for the 2010 and 2011 tax years.

    Is it that hard to figure out? Monthly statements for July 2010 to June 2011 (the 12 months prior to July 1, 2011).

    Sorry for not being clear enough, my point was not that I had a problem with the documents, but that other people at the intake were surprised and that there are many, many options given on that sheet.

    My 'paperwork' has been together and organized for a number of years. I had all the documents I needed, plus some. And as you noted, I initialed all those boxes that my investigator marked off, so considering that, it would be hard for me to miss the fact they were marked off.

    My approach is to listen closely, follow directions and read whatever notices they send me carefully and it goes pretty smoothly.
