How Do I Reinstate an Inactive Secret Security Clearance?

Did you know that if you are employed by the federal government or a defense contractor and you are supporting a contract that requires you to have access to classified information, then there is a possibility you can have your clearance reinstated if the following applies?

  • No more than 24 months has lapsed since the date of termination of the clearance;
  • There is no known adverse information;
  • The most recent investigation does not exceed 5 years (DoD Top Secret/DoE Q) or 10 years (DoD Secret/DoE L); and
  • The level of security clearance that is to be reinstated meets or exceeds the scope of the investigation required.
