I’m getting my clearance renewed. I had an interview with an investigator. He was pushy and more intimidating than any of the other investigators I’ve dealt with. He wanted to ask me about 4 credit cards that were all paid off. The last one was paid off back in 2019. For every credit card he asked me about I told him those were all paid off and showed a 0 balance. He also mentioned, “Well I’ll get this sent up if they say yes you’re good if they say no then you could lose your job and end up working at Wal-Mart or Amazon”. Then after the interview was over I started freaking out.
My boss told me that I got no reason to worry if my charge offs were paid and show a 0 balance. She also told me that as long as I can live within my means, I’m good. The only debt I have now is one credit card, one house payment, and one car payment. I’m current and good on all of them. Should I be good?
