At the Rocket Companies ®, we strive to support veterans in as many areas as possible – whether they’re looking for a new career, need a loan to buy a home or are looking for support from the community they call home. If you’re a veteran or know someone who is, below is an overview of veteran initiatives and opportunities that we focus on.
Veteran Hiring Program
In 2021 alone, we hired more than 460 veterans and military spouses. We’re proud to have a robust hiring program for veterans and have even been honored by Military Friendly, the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and Military Times as one of America’s top employers for veterans. What sets us apart from other companies? We have a dedicated veteran recruiting team (who are veterans themselves) to help veteran candidates and their spouses transition from military to civilian life.
We also have a Tour of Duty program, which is an opportunity available to any transitioning service members looking for hands-on experience before starting a new career. This program allows veterans to shadow different roles and business areas and allows them to get a better understanding of what best suits their strengths and unique skillsets. This program opens the door to many full-time positions available within our organization, including human resources, security, technology, client relations and more.
All veterans and team members in the reserves are encouraged to join the Veteran Team Member Resource Network (TMRN) to connect with one another about their military service experiences and attend event opportunities together. In addition to the TMRN, team members receive a dedicated Team Relations Specialist and 24/7 access to our Veteran Hiring team who can help answer any career questions.
We’re committed to helping and hiring veterans – we were even featured on an episode of Military Makeover in 2019.
Top VA Home Loan Lender
Rocket Mortgage® is a top VA lender and supports military organizations at the local, state and national level. When applying for a loan, team members get waived underwriting and processing fees, receive exclusive team member pricing, discounted closing costs, an exclusive experience with the most experienced bankers and prioritized processing.
Our VA loan program allows veterans to purchase a home without a down payment and, many times, we offer thousands of dollars in lender credits to cover closing costs.
Commitment To End Veteran Homelessness
As one of America’s largest VA lenders, we’re proud to have helped millions of veterans realize the dream of homeownership. Sadly, not all veterans have this opportunity. Rocket Mortgage believes everyone, especially those who have sacrificed to serve our country, deserve a safe and secure place to call home. That’s why we became a lead sponsor of Built for Zero, a national movement to end chronic and veteran homelessness.
Through Built for Zero, 98 communities are proving that an end to homelessness is possible. In fact, 12 communities have achieved “functional zero” for veteran homelessness, meaning that homelessness is rare and brief in their community. Since joining the movement in 2018, our support has helped Built for Zero house more than 22,000 veterans across the country. In our home community of Detroit, we have helped drive a nearly 40% reduction in veteran homelessness.
