The bankruptcy is almost certainly what flagged it -- but if you're honest and it's been a while, I wouldn't worry. Having known a few people in federal jobs requiring security clearance, the gov't just likes to make sure they've looked over everything thoroughly (especially post-9/11).Thanks for the replies. I have a discharged bankruptcy, but I have been open and honest about it. At this point anything like this may cause me to stress a little bit. It would suck to get disqualifed at this point in the process especially after all the money spent on plane tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars. Thanks for putting my mind at ease a little bit.
Actually, I have a chapter 7 bankruptcy, and they didn't even check it out.... mine was discharged in August 2006...The bankruptcy is almost certainly what flagged it -- but if you're honest and it's been a while, I wouldn't worry.

I had the 2 FBI agents show up at my door step. I was off working so they interviewed my sister and brother-in-law. I have not heard anything from then and that was three weeks ago. ????????
Sorry I'm just tired of getting a clearance to hold at PHILS intersection with an EFC of 1 hour. Happened 5 times this week alone.
The first time we held and had to divert for more fuel. Then we took off and got the same holding clearance. So much for the ground flow control. But the controllers got us in before we had to divert again.
LOL. Got to love flying in the bad weather! I enjoy IFRanic:
Confess, I did and I could not find anything on my official record. I had two speeding tickets 5 years ago.
But check the Clearance form, I believe it said to not include fines under $150 or something like that. My tickets were 300, I like to go fast!!:buck:
Okay not to split hairs or anything, but those were not FBI agents. FBI is the Feberal Bureau of Investigation. The people who visited your home work for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) - they work on Federal Investigative cases. Big difference, one investigates crimes and the other investigates people's background.I have there cards FBI special agents!! U.S. office of Personnel Management- Federal Investigative services
