A Military Friendly Employer

AEP is proud to call itself American Electric Power, and we support our employees who have served or are serving in the military. We have been recognized by G.I. Jobs magazine as one of the most military-friendly employers in the country, and we actively seek veteran candidates who are looking to redeploy the skill sets they acquired in the military to an electric utility setting.

We also appreciate the sacrifices made by our employees who serve in the Reserves and National Guard and support those who are called to active duty in an emergency situation in the following ways:

  • AEP will pay the difference between military pay and AEP pay for up to two full years while the employee is on active military duty.
  • The employee and his or her qualified dependents can continue participating in most AEP benefit programs, including medical, dental and retirement savings plans, for up to two years, while the employee is on active duty.
  • The employee’s family members can continue to take advantage of most AEP work/life programs, including financial advisory services, child care referral services and wellness programs, while the employee is on active duty.

Troops to Energy Jobs

AEP is part of a pilot effort to link veterans leaving military service to job openings in the energy industry.

The Troops To Energy Jobs program provides mentoring, education and training for veterans whose military skills and experience match up with the workforce needs of energy companies. For more information, visit the Troops to Energy Jobs website or watch this video that explains what it's all about:
