Security Clearance Concern

Hi everyone,

So here is my question: I have a had a TS/SCI clearance for close to two years. I’m currently and have been in a cleared position however I am looking at taking some time due to a personal situation soon. If I were to resign from my contractor that is my cleared position how long would I have to obtain a new cleared position? Second question: my background investigation close date was May 2019 and my Adjudication date was May 2019 so that being said how long would my BI remain “in scope”? My concern is leaving a position and letting my BI expire and then starting the process over again. To my understanding for TS clearance 5-6 is the norm for a reinvestigation. I hope I am being clear enough but I am trying to figure how long and when my BI would be out of scope. Thanks in advanced!

Well in the old world a TS was good for 5 years from close date and that changed to 6 years. Now with Continued Evaluation there pretty much won’t be re-investigations any more unless you have issues come up that warrants one. You now are simply evaluated on a continued basis. If you leave your current employer and he drops his relationship with you, you have 24 months, by the regs, before your eligibility becomes inactive.
