I have some questions in regards to my public trust that is currently being investigated.
Yesterday, I submitted my E-Qip for a public trust clearance so that I can start working as an Air Traffic Controller with a government contract company. I am waiting for a “condition clearance” in order to start my job in a couple weeks. I have outstanding debt that is in collections due to some financial difficulties and overall not knowing how to balance a budget when I was younger. I submitted 4 collections and 1 charge off on the SF-85p.
I’m just stressed about it not accepted because I have the outstanding debts. I’m finally in a situation where I can pay these debts off. I am in the process of contacting the companies so that I can start payment plans.
Does the investigators take into account that I have been paying my bills on time and that I have started making steps to pay off the outstanding debts?
