I have maintained each of the afore-mentioned clearances at maintaining the Top Secret (TS) (17 yrs. - as a Federal Government Employee) and Secret (S) (1-3 yrs. respective of contracts duration). In 2014, I was stricken with a major medical problem but survived and was capable of returning to work on the contract I was working on when the medical problem began. I remained until the contract was completed. After about six months of unemployment, I was called by the HR representative from that company and was asked if I would go on a contract job for an agency that does highly sensitive and classified work. I was told high recommendations were given to them about me and they were really interested in me. I called the point of contact and we began the hiring process (i.e. went on interview, passed it, began filling out form SF86).
However, I did not get the job due to indebtedness. Between the time I was released from the hospital, returned to work (for six months-contract ended), and unemployment all pay-out-of- pocket medical bills expenses went unpaid because of unemployment.
Question is, do I stand a chance at getting approved for a Public Trust clearance? and also, is not my past history of clearances mean anything?
