They are threatening to revoke my security clearance…do I fight it?
Yes. Your security clearance is the ticket to keeping your job. Without it, you will most likely no longer be qualified to hold your position and if you are a service member, you may be eliminated from the service. If you have recently received a letter of intent (LOI) to revoke your security clearance, you need to act right now. If you do not respond to the LOI within 60 days and are not granted a delay, the preliminary decision to revoke your security clearance will become final. The LOI should provide you with a specific list of reasons why the intent is to revoke your clearance. This list of reasons is called the “statement of reasons” or SOR. The SOR can involve anything from being convicted at a court-martial to simply being accused of acting suspiciously. Therefore, the best way to address the SOR is different in each unique case. You really need experience to understand how to best respond to this LOI. I have that experience. Do not wait to call me because it may be too late.
