New Security Clearance Guidelines For Servicemembers & Credit Reports

The federal government recently implemented new guidelines requiring the Department of Defense to continuously monitor the financial status of servicemembers who have security clearances. This means that a past-due bill or an error on your credit report could jeopardize you clearance status. To safeguard your credit worthiness and prevent problems with your security clearance, check your credit report and dispute any inaccuracies; consider setting up a fraud alert or security freeze to stop your credit report from being accessed unless you lift the freeze and monitor your credit score.
