How Much Debt Would Disqualify You from Getting a Security Clearance in the Army?

debt



Is there an exact amount of debt or is it if you have any kind of bills in collections no matter the amount? I have a couple of bills in collections that equal to about one thousand dollars. Would that disqualify me from being paid a surprise security clearance from the army? If anyone knows the amount I would appreciate the help.

  1. Yes, bills in collections will DQ you. There’s no fixed amount that they look at. They look at your credit description and current situation.

  2. Dude good luck with that sh*t, being paid a security clearance is a pain in the ***. The DOD shows up and runs a one year background check on you and calls all your teachers you have ever had and talks to all your neighbors and friends and you have to take a polygraph and basically its like the boy scouts club.

    If you are not a perfect person, (If you have done any drugs, cheated on your wife, have family tree in countries where terror is renowned to have been an issue, or served in the peace body) Among many things, forget about it.
