Heard today from my FSO that DSS has stated the times for Final TS was 460 days. At this point I’m 204 days into the process, and have held my interim TS for 174 days. I held a final Secret for 2 years and am only 23 years old. I figured that this would help me out. But then I found out today that two colleagues of mine who were put in for TS after me have already had interviews with investigators. Should I be concerned that i haven’t heard anything about my clearance? In addition to this, could anyone answer if the SoCal area is extremely backed up on clearance processing?
Another colleague of mine has held an interim TS for over a year and has heard no mention of interviews.
