Obtaining Your Military Clearance
As with most other clearances, it's required that members be sponsored by a government entity to pursue clearance. When you are being recruited, it is common for the clearance process to begin then. Other times, it may be necessary to acquire a new clearance if a member works for a department that is outside of their branch of service- which would be the case if a member of the Navy or Army is being transferred to a separate branch's detachment or base. Your approved clearance level will be appropriate for your position and duties and will not be granted for personal reasons. Some assignments or duties might require you to have further access to confidential or top secret information.
Your required access level can potentially change from one mission to the next, or call for temporary clearance upgrades. Depending on the factors surrounding your current positions, duties and involvement with classified information, you will need to apply for certain security clearances. You will be required to complete a SF-86 application with accurate and truthful information. If you do not fill out the form with appropriate or honest information about any part of your history, such as criminal records, your future clearance and employment could be endangered. Other requirements include a Department of Defense Personnel Security mandated local background check. There will be inquires and investigations surrounding your military medical history, disciplinary behavior and mental health.
The Local Security Officers will gather this information and inquire with the Security Forces Squadron for any other details of interest. You should expect a credit check to be required as a military member, as well. If you have significant delinquent debt or have a pattern of questionable financial habits, your clearance could be at stake. Federal background checks are also performed after the local background check. Your criminal history will be examined for possible convictions, delinquencies or warrants left out of your application. If you do not provide the most accurate information to your knowledge about your criminal history, your Military Security Clearance will likely not be approved.
