Another point of contact


#1

I am waiting my sercurity clearance(still in adjudication, but is being actively worked on.) I am waiting for a State Department job called the Consular Fellows. Every week I call the sercurity Clearance hotline provided on the web site. My quesions is, is there another person I can call? I have a case officer but I havent spoken to her since filling out my DS 86.


#2

You can call your case officer but they might not have much more info. You can also contact your congressman and senators. They will not be able to get a lot of information but they can nudge things along and find out where you are in the process.


#3

If your case truly is in adjudication. Congrats you are in the last step of the process. I don’t think there is much that can be said other than you are in adjudication.


#4

I have cases stuck 27 months in adjudication. All they can tell me is it is still in there. Which I take as a good sign. If the info was derogatory…they would be denied and revoked.


#5

27 months? That is pretty crazy. Why would it take that long?


#6

Actually if its with the State Department you call a different number. The State Department has their own investigation and adjudication process. They are one of the few that do not use OPM (NBIB).


#7

You can get your process in real time and see what is going on.


#8

There’s the security clearance but there’s also the issue of the lingering hiring freeze as the State Dept restructures or whatever the term is. That shouldnt affect your clearance process but I could see new hires going to the bottom of the stack while they adjudicate periodic updates or other cases that may be more critical.

Just my two cents…


#9

so, dont make any long term plans.


#10

It is frustrating to hear that. I know that I am not alone, but it is difficult to make any long term plans or moving forward and I need to do that in soon. I was thinking that this would be done by at most a year and a half(investigation to adjudication to final decision) but now it seems like two years would be a more reasonable timeline if at all.
Every time I call they say my case is being actively worked on. What does that really mean?


#11

All it really means is that they have not received word that you were either cleared or denied.
