I am currently in a Federal job that requires TS/SCI. My clearance was adjudicated in 2012 and re-investigation began mid-2018 (a year beyond the customary 5 years). Since I submitted my updated SF-86, I have decided (due to an extremely toxic leadership environment) to leave my job without another job waiting in the wings. I am actively pursuing employment in other sectors of the Federal government and with private sector companies that require a clearance, but I don’t know how much longer I can remain in my current situation without it negatively impacting my health.
Will the already-initiated investigation continue and be adjudicated even though I will have resigned my position? Will I remain eligible to have my clearance reinstated as an interim should I be reemployed by the Federal government or a Federal contractor within a certain amount of time after I leave?
