I accepted my first position which will require an interim Secret clearance. I am the only American-born individual in my immediate family. However, my parents and half-siblings are all U.S. citizens.
The problem is I have two full siblings both born in the Philippines. One has both Philippine and South Korean citizenship. I only met these siblings once when I visited the Philippines about 16 years ago. I do not maintain contact with them and only know of their activities through my mother. The only occasional contact I’ve had with them that I can think of (less than five times my entire life) has been Facebook wall posts saying ‘Happy birthday’.
I was wondering how this could affect my odds of receiving an interim Secret as my job is contingent on it. Thanks!
