Adjudication and Public Trust


#1

My secret clearance is currently under adjudication for not disclosing all debt on my credit report. I have responded to the form with documentation indicating several of the items either paid in full or payment arrangements have been made with documentation to confirm...While waiting for my hearing my employer has offered me a position that requires a public trust while we wait for the adjudication decision. Will I be able to get a public trust

The issue at hand is not just your finances, but the fact that you did not disclose them. At the heart of being eligible for a security clearance, as well as for Public Trust positions, is that you are honest, reliable and trustworthy enough to protect classified information or perform public trust duties, Chances are good that you would be found ineligible for both if the issues are not mitigated.
