Transcript

  • 1. Financial Issues and SecurityClearancesTop financial issues and what to do about them
  • 2. Why is debt a problem?Financial considerations come into play in securityclearance adjudication because most individuals whobetray their country do so for financial gain.
  • 3. Top Financial IssuesThe major financial issues are:1. Compulsive/addictive behavior2. Deceptive/illegal financial practices3. Unexplained affluence4. Delinquent debt Most financial issues come down to high debt to income ratio and excessive indebtedness
  • 4. Delinquent Debt: Adjudicative factorsIn making a clearance decision, these factors areconsidered:• Cause of debt• Response to debt• Amount of debtCause is generally more important than amount,because it points to trustworthiness and judgment.
  • 5. Response to DebtClassic indicators of irresponsible or unethicalbehavior are:• Changing addresses without notifying creditors• Failure to take reasonable measures to pay or reduce debts• Knowingly issuing bad checks• Increased credit card use immediately before filing for bankruptcy
  • 6. What Can I Do if I Have Financial Issues?1. Deal with any financial issues responsibly. Seek professional assistance and credit counseling if necessary. Declaring bankruptcy will not automatically cause a clearance to be denied or suspended.2. Debt alone will not automatically cause a clearance denial, even excessive debt. What matters is that you’re able to explain your current debt situation and have a plan for paying it off. The type of debt (credit card versus mortgage) also matters.3. If you experience financial issues while possessing a security clearance, report any ongoing issues with your security officer.
