There is a maximum age to go into positions such as law enforcement or firefighters. Does my military time extend the age of my cutoff date for those types of positions?

Qualified preference eligibles may apply and be considered for vacancies regardless of whether they meet the maximum age requirements identified at 5 U.S.C. 3307, unless the hiring agency has determined age is essential to the duties of the job.
