Security clearances, financial issues and the government shutdown

It is estimated that approximately 800,000 people across the country, surely including many living here in Pennsylvania, are affected by the partial government shutdown. These individuals could sustain significant financial issues as a result the longer it goes on. For those with security clearances, it could also jeopardize their livelihood when they attempt to return to work.

One of the primary reasons for the denial, suspension or revocation of security clearances is monetary problems. Obviously, not getting paid for a significant amount of time will cause such issues. A sample letter that the affected workers could send to their creditors regarding the shutdown was sent out by the Office of Personnel Management in an attempt to help them through this crisis. Affected individuals are also encouraged to contact their creditors to discuss the situation and see what arrangements could be made since once the shutdown is over, payments will go out, including the missed paychecks.

This may work for some, but for those already struggling prior to the shutdown, it may not be enough. In fact, the government shutdown could be the catalyst that pushes certain individuals over the edge financially. They may still have issues with retaining their clearances when they go back to work.

Those who can avoid getting even further behind on their payments should take steps to do so, but if that is not possible, being prepared for what could come next is crucial. Pennsylvania residents who believe the government shutdown will cause issues with their security clearances may want to arm themselves with information. It may be possible to appeal any adverse decisions regarding a clearance, especially in the wake of the current shutdown.
