Military Spouse Program

We appreciate military spouses for their resiliency and support they provide service members. At the Secret Service, military spouses are eligible for the non-competitive hiring process to fill positions on either a temporary or permanent basis.

You are eligible if you are:

  • A spouse of an active duty member of the armed forces.
  • A spouse of a service member who is 100% disabled due to a service-connected injury.
  • A spouse of a service member killed while on active duty.

You are no longer eligible if you remarry. Your eligibility does not entitle you to a job within the federal government. You must still apply and meet qualification standards and additional requirements, such as a background investigation. Documentation needed include:

  • Marriage certificate
  • Spouse’s Military Orders
  • Spouse’s DD214 (For military members who were killed on active duty.

Eligible spouses must apply online at USAJOBS. Any specific question may be forwarded to
