            • I asked dhs what type of security clearance do CBP officers recieve. They said, "SSBI(covers up to 10 yrs of your past) - Top Secret." I thought SSBI is only for 5 years and why do cbp get SSBI. I have a freind who is a CBP officer. He said he didn't know why because he doesn't have a Top Secret Clearance.

                  SSBI clearances covers up to 10 years of your past (when conducting the investigation). A Single Scope Background Investigation lasts only for 5 years, then needs to be re-investigated. The Office of Personnel Management set the minimum requirements for the investigation, but due to mission specific needs per agency, sometimes the requirements for the clearance could be more strict or lax. This is why it is difficult to transfer clearances from one agency to another (DOD to DHS to DOE to FBI, etc etc), especially when the mission is law enforcement or intelligence. Even though I have a clearance with the Coast Guard (which falls under DHS), doesn't it mean that CBP should be able to use my previous SF-86? Technically, yes. Especially since the level of clearance they are requesting is the same clearance I hold in the CG. President Bush even passed a law that said they aren't aloud to do this, but they do it anyway. Oh well.

                      There are jobs within CBP that require a CBP officer to have a higher clearance including Top Secret SCI. You are supposed to be re-investigated every five years. I say supposed because like everything else there is a backlog and it doesn't always happen on time. The re-investigation asks for information going back 10 years. They give all officers an SSBI because if you are moved into a position that calls for the higher clearance it is faster and easier to grant it because most of the investigation is already done.

                      The Immigration service before the merger was quite different than the US Customs Service in that all Immigration Inspectors were granted and maintained a Secret security clearance upon being hired. That changed with the merger and the forming of CBP.

                        So SSBI is not TS. It seemed like they were saying that the SSBI is TS

                        • VBT and Structured Interview

                          I just took my VBT and Interview yesterday, how long it will take for me to know if I passed???

                          They told me I will received a letter on the mail.

                          I was not epecting a structured interview, the letter says that the VBT was consider the structured interview, damn it caught me by surprise. I hate those kind of interviews, im not really good at interviews that requieres certaing keywords and stuff like that. I think I blew my chances inthe interview. Thats how low I feel about my interview. Didnt prepare for that.

                            It took me about a week to receive my NOR but they generally say 3-4 weeks.

                              SSBI is required for Top Secret clearances. Don't get hung up on the verbiage of the clearances. I don't know what the clearance requirements were back before CBP, so it is possible some people do not have TS clearances, not sure. A requirement now to become a CBP officer is a Top Secret Clearance through a Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI), which covers the last 10 years of your life, and is a more in depth investigation on former spouses, character references, employment history, reviews of rental history, education, academic records, etc, etc.
