We help advise on the three basic types of security clearances:

 

Confidential

  • Foreign employment, immediate relatives and marriages and other personal relationships are screened with scrutiny during the application process.

  • Reinvestigated every 15 years.

 

Secret

  • 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

 

Top Secret: Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) & Special Access Program (SAP)

  • Extensive application process and background check known as a Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI). Investigators scrutinize dependents, friends, relatives and any foreign travel or employment. Foreign travel and financial assets investigated deeply. Character references required.

  • Reinvestigated every 5 years.
