Can a security clearance be affected by debt?

The simple answer to that question is, yes. When receiving a security clearance, an individual's financial background absolutely plays a role in whether one is granted or denied. However, it is not just what a Pennsylvania resident does prior to receiving a clearance that makes a difference. As a service member or someone else working in a position with access to classified information moves forward, how debt obligations are handled could affect whether he or she gets to keep that clearance.

More changes are coming for security clearances

Instead of the Office of Personnel Management, the Pentagon will now conduct background checks and investigations regarding Pentagon and Department of Defense employees (both military and civilian). The goal of this move is to allow OPM to handle the backlogged requests for security clearances, which at present includes applications from some 700,000 people. Approximately 500,000 of those affect Defense Department employees, and the odds are that some may be here in Pennsylvania.
