    SirEd, I think if you weren't working, they want some proof on how you were supported. Maybe a letter notorized from your parents stating that they took care of you.

    I agree with nycq83. Those guys seem to be as in the loop as us, maybe even a little less. I still think anyone up to 900 has a shot at January because who knows how many will pass the whole process, it's a lot.

    SirEd, you're looking into way too much. They won't not hire you because you were unemployed for X amount of time. But they will not hire you for not having the appropriate documentation which Is simply a notarized letter saying whoever supported you during that time. I had to do it for Ems as well.

    They are going to be senior to you also... as well as senior to everyone hired off of 6019... and most of the guys hired from 2043... seniority is a loose term when being applied to guys hired off the priority list... AND THATS the bottom line... because Judge Garaufis said so...
    What matters on paper and what matters in the real world are two different things. Seniority in the real world is time OTJ, and more specifically time in the house/company. These guys will be senior to you in that sense, and that will be legitimate.

    I agree they said they believe 600 and less have a shot at January but it was also very obvious that they don't know much about going on in regards to investigations and what list number they will get up too. They didn't know that most of us got our packets already as well as a couple of other things that they were asking us for info about. Not saying anything bad about them, the guys there even said they don't deal with that stuff so they don't know much, just passing the info on that 600 was his guess and he even said he could be wrong. Train as if your gonna be in this class, this way your not caught unprepared!
    Everyone is left in the dark in terms of hiring. Only people in Personnel involved in hiring know anything about what's going on with you guys, and that's on purpose. That's why this forum and others like it are the best source of information. You guys can share what most OTJ don't really know/have access to.

    I was at the rock today. Cheers to everyone in business casual and to everyone who showed up clean shaven. Enjoy walking on the sidewalk while you can.

    Do you still need those support letters if you were in college and unemployed or do you strictly need them if you were unemployed at any time in your life(over the age of 18)? And do they want original signatures or can they be copies?

    Still need it.

    I was working 3 jobs and going to college and I still needed a letter stating my parents supported me through college(possibly cuz I still used their address as my home address throughout college but I don't know for sure if that was why) as well as for my short period of unemployment.

    Orginal copy simply stated:
    I (father) supported (name) during (these dates) during his attendance to college as well as from (these dates) during his period of unemployment. Notarized signature from myself and my father and done. That's it.

    I have to admit I was surprised how many guys didn't show up in at least business casual. Shirt and tie clean shaved and the guys there noticed it.

    you should probably use the word "dependent" in lieu of "supported". I will basically have a notarized letter stating this as well

    Thank you FdnyFFhopeful for putting it so simply. Im going to use almost exactly what you stated in my letter. Thank you agian

    Hypothetically, how would taking loans out and living off of them be handled in your opinion? Get a notarized letter from the bank?

    If someone knows anyone that was not hired because of other reasons that not meeting their requirements then please let me know.

    Say I got out of college and never worked for 10 years because I just didn't want to work. It is none of their business that I did that nor how I was supported. Jeez. If anyone wants to argue differently then please give me of an example of someone who didn't get hired because of reasons like that?
    I remember for NYPD they wanted to know how you were supported if you didn't work because there is always the possibility that a candidate may have been making money "illegally" if you know what I mean.

    Mr. Ed

    It is my impression they just want to be thorough. The investigators have a set of guidelines to follow and information to obtain. They do not make those rules. Instead of getting angry at the process, just get it done. Remember, we are trying to become a member of their organization so we play by their rules.
    Personally, I'd give anything to get a chance at the "best job in the world," and I'm sure most people here feel the same way. So, taking 30 minutes out of the day to write a small statement and notarize it seems a bit ridiculous to get your panties it a bunch over. I hope you don't have that attitude going into the Pysch Test.

    You will need to write a statement, pretty much what "FDNYFFHopeful" wrote, if you were unemployed for anytime more than six months since you were 18 years old. Even if you were a fulltime student. My letter just stated I was supported by my saving, student loans, and with help from my parents. They just need to check the boxes.

    This info is just to give you a leg up, the investigator will explain it all to you in detail.

    Oh and you need it NOTARIZED, which means signing it in front of the notary and they put a seal on it. So yes, the original.

    Yea you don't need any crazy forms or anything for the proof. When I went through Ems that's exactly what I wrote and my investigator said that was perfect. I dunno if fire would want it any different but I can't imagine why.

    Don't go crazy writing some long winded thing.

    If you lived at home there's no need to even disclose it. Go with I was supported by my parents. I don't know but if you put the other stuff they may want some kind of proof of it which could be a pain just gathering. When she told me I needed it I said I supported myself I was working through college but somehow that wasn't good enough since I wasn't living in my own or whatever.

    Stupid.

    I see your point now. I thought you were doing this when it was not needed or even asked for. I thought it was a bit overboard.

    However, now that I see that it is a requirement by FDNY than it is not a big deal at all.
