    I do all my bills paperless as well. You have to get some kind of mail to your house. I used a letter my retirement fund company sent me. It doesn't have to be something official but its probably just easier to accept. As long as it has your name on it with the address you should be fine. I needed to provide one bank and one credit card statement along with this which is easy, just print out like you did before.

    I cant imagine it being an issue, its still a bank.

Anyways, when I got my drivers abstract, the paper is literally blank. No history on it. Does that mean that "it didn't happen" or it has "been erased" and I don't have to mention it in the packet section? Rather not mention it if I don't have to, obviously.
    I personally didn't have any so I pretty much skimp past those pages of the packet because none of it implies to me, this list of documents I submitted was a mix between myself and another candidate that we both handed in and he had some. From my understanding pretty much anything you had to go to court for you need to list and provide some kind of disposition. I got an "unsafe operation of a motor vehicle" ticket (which is a moving violation) when I was 17 which I plead guilty to and paid a fine. I listed it just to be safe but my investigator told me that its not necessary because it was so long ago and I don't have anything else to report. I would definitely list that red light ticket even if its not on your abstract. Not everything you get ends up on there as I believe that is only for accidents but I'm not positive on that. But as a perfect example I just recently was driving and got side swiped by another car. Didn't show up on my abstract because this was just before my investigation but I still brought the insurance claim stating I was not found at fault at all and my investigator said that was a good idea because if it shows up on my abstract by my date of hire they will require the paperwork on it.

    I would list anything you can think of and provide the disposition if you have it handy or if its recent.
    They'll tell you whether or not they need more info on it. As long as you don't have a continuous record of crap I don't imagine it would be an issue. They are only looking to pick out people who have serious issues or show a record of constant issues because that will mean to them you will probably cause them a problem in the future which will be attached to FDNY.

    Just finished up my intake interview and went really smooth. I have everything except the notarized statement that I was supported by my parents during a period of unemployment. But my investigator was really nice. The earlier you get there the earlier you get out.

    Nice man, got mine in a week. Hopefully mine goes as smoothly. Glad to see your Long Beach move didn't mess you up.

    Yeah I finished mine today as well. It went smoother than I thought it would've imagined after the way it started. My impression on my investigator is TBD.

    It's not 100% confirmed yet, she just collects it and than someone else reviews your file. But from what she saw, she said everything looked good. But when Ms.Quinn was talking to the entire group she said for the residency points we don't care where you lived before or where you lived after, we just care about where you lived during that time period stated on the NOE. I don't want to jinx it but it looks good so far.

    Got my CPAT dates in the mail, 9th, 14th, and 19th.

    Also one more thing about the investigation today. Some people have said they had to bring in a piece of mail showing current residency, even if you printed off bills online. My investigator accepted whatever I printed online. I asked her if I needed a piece of recent mail to prove current residency and she said she doesn't need, what I printed was fine. So I really think it just depends on your investigator.

    Yeah you're right. I need to produce that "piece of mail" for my guy.

    They go in list order and grab as many people as it takes to fill 320 spots. The way they arranged the list is by social security numbers, so it is just the luck of the draw. Nonetheless, some people from 103 may be touched, some people from the 102s might be touched, but it all depends on list numbers.

    It makes no difference, they use the last 5 of your social security number as the tie breaker. You'll most likely see guys with 103's in this upcoming class and the June/July 2014 class.

    with summons and points on my license i'm nervous about the investigation.
    I'm trying not to omit anything but looking at the collection I have gathered I am concerned =/
    does anyone else have a tainted collection but have managed to pass the investigation?

    I believe they just go down the list and send the letter to attend the 1.5 mile run to each guy on the list who has passed all the steps.

    That being said if all the other 104's get a letter for the run in early January and I don't (I have passed all the steps in the process so far), I'm calling up CID to make sure I get a freakin letter lol. This is not something I am going to miss out on.

    You're given a list # for a reason. This was never an issue on previous exams because the score on a previous exam would be 103.XXXX, so there were rarely ties. Since the scores on this test are whole number they did a tie breaker the way that I think the department does tie breakers for anything: last 5 of your SSN. When it comes time to actually hire people for the next class they're just going to go straight down the list till they have enough candidates.

    Don't worry about this.. FDNY doesn't seem to be looking to rule people out the same way nypd does. If you just be honest and bring every disposition it shouldn't be a problem.

    I met my investigator, heres how it went on dispositions.. before we met the investigator, the director of candidate investigations told us, for misdeamenor arrests u need a dispo.. for summons' that WERE DISMISSED, YOU DO NOT NEED A DISPOSITION. IF THE SUMMONS WASN'T DISMISSED AND IT RESULTED IN A FINE OR WHAT NOT, YOU NEEDED A DISPOSITION.

    My situation, I have 1 summons from 7 years ago for fair evasion. I went to court it was dismissed. A candidate in the room had the same exact thing and he asked if he had to disclose that and the director said no you can cross that out you don't have to disclose that.

    I chose not to cross it out since I already put it down. My investigator since I put it down, asked me for a disposition. Thankfully I had a copy of the dispo which I brought just in case so she accepted that.

    So my advice to you, if you have copies of your dispo's bring them. if you don't, then I would go get a disposition for every summons you put down. My summons' I didn't have to disclose according to the director, but since I did disclose it, my investigator asked for the dispo.

    So rule of thumb, if you put it down, get a dispo, because your investigator will ask for it, EVEN IF ITS A SUMMONS THAT YOU DIDNT HAVE TO DISCLOSE IN THE 1ST PLACE. If you cant get the dispo by the time you go, then im sure they will let you fax it.

    It is a mix. When I took it some did wear suits (me), while others were in business casual and some were in sweats and sweatshirts. I don't think it is a set dress code. But it is always better to over dress then under dress. The test shouldn't take you long. Was done in about 1.5 hrs. Good luck.

    Went to the courthouse to get the 2 dispositions I had. Both given to me at the same time in 2007 lol. Both dismissed. The guy at the counter said that the FDNY investigator isn't gonna care about them bc they are from over 6 years ago and were dismissed. It was nice to hear but I will bring them anyway, just in case. John just said that if they were dismissed, nobody cares lol. I'll keep you guys posted, of course. Update on that red light ticket I mentioned before: I went to DMV and spoke to the guy who called my number, he said that the drivers abstract covers the last 4 years of my driving history. That ticket and points I got was 6 years ago so it has been "erased" from my history. Is this really how it works? The guy was just a young kid, looked like he was just chilling at work, not really caring about much lol. Not sure I could take him seriously. I didn't have enough time to stay and get a second opinion. If it really has been erased from my record, should I still mention it in the packet? Apparently, according to the kid at DMV, I can't get any proof that it happened anyway... So if I put it down and the investigator wants paper work on it, wtf do I do?! Something seems off, here...
