One of the most often raised issues in security clearance cases involves the issue of financial concerns for a federal employee or government contractor. The majority of security clearance cases, by far, involve this issue. This type of security clearance case falls under Guideline F, Financial Considerations of the new June 2017 Adjudicative Guidelines contained in Security Executive Agent Directive 4. Guideline F is the section of the Adjudicative Guidelines which involve financial considerations and provides the basis to evaluate their impact on an individual’s ability to maintain a security clearance.
