The type of clearance you can be granted will depend on your position, the agency or company with which you are employed, and the scope of work involved.
There are three basic types of security clearances:
Foreign employment, immediate relatives and marriages and other personal relationships are screened with scrutiny during the application process.
Reinvestigated every 15 years.
Requires a National Agency Check, a Local Agency Check and a Credit investigation. Bankruptcy and unpaid bills as well as criminal charges may disqualify an applicant. Poor financial history is the number-one cause of rejection, and foreign activities and criminal record are also common causes for disqualification
Reinvestigated every 10 years
