The background investigation helps determine your stability, trustworthiness, reliability, discretion, character, honesty, judgment and unquestioned loyalty to the United States. If you have undergone a background investigation with another agency in the last seven years, we may use that investigation or request an updated investigation.
During this step, we will:
- Verify your previous and current employment, education and residences.
- Interview your friends, neighbors, supervisors and co-workers.
- Conduct a personal interview with you to review the security forms and help us determine your eligibility for a security clearance.
