Common Disqualifiers for Security Clearance

A security clearance is typically denied due to behavior that the government determines is a risk to national security.

Reasons for a security clearance denial include:

  • Involvement in drugs
  • Reckless sexual behaviors
  • Financial considerations, including debt or affluence
  • Addiction to gambling
  • Undue foreign influence or preference
  • Criminal conduct
  • Consumption of alcohol
  • Handling personal or protected information
  • Mental or psychological conditions
  • Use of IT systems

Financial considerations are typically the most common reason for a security clearance denial. You can have your security clearance denied as a result of poor credit choices, deceptive financial activities, or financial problems related to gambling or drug addictions.

You can challenge your denial by proving mitigating factors, including:

  • Proof you have engaged in the act in question infrequently
  • Proof you have not engaged in the act in question for a long period of time
  • Proof you have completed a program related to resolving the issue in question
