Applying for SECRET clearance thru my job. (IT/HEALTH RELATED) I’ve held this job for 8 years now. Just now they are asking me to apply for clearance to support IT functions that require it.
Did not file taxes for FEDs in 2004 - 2007.
Used drugs (was arrested in 2004)
Possession of Fake ID in 2002
Used drug (not arrested) but did encounter police in 2009.
I was diagnosed under severe depression in 2005 which explicitly laid out the causes of all my actions due to the depression brought on by a divorce that drug on for 12 years. (refiling, visitation, support changes, and for the heck she just loves going to court) I have a medical letter that spells it out from the psychiatrist.
Will any of these disqual me for SECRET clearance application now?
I’d rather not apply than to have my company find out I was less than stellar even tho its almost 15 years ago.
I know the background goes back 5 years someone said - but I also heard they still pull out the fact you didnt file your taxes 20 years ago. So Im confused.
