  • Ts/sci

    On my initial interview, the agent told me that agents on the protective detail require SCI. So I am guessing that all USSS Special Agents get cleared TS/SCI, but they won't get read in to SCI until they are on protective detail.

    From my understanding SCI doesn't just pertain to intelligence matters. It pertains to all information that could be harmful to the United States if it falls in the wrong hands, or ears for that matter.

        How long after you submitted your SF 86 to getting your panel interview? I just submitted mine today and was curious when I could expect to hear anything from them.

        Thanks.

        • I was told on the day I left the initial, to go home and fill out the SF86. I was called about 2 days later to set up my panel. I guess if I have a successful panel the next step is the poly? anyone?

          • Poly comes next, correct.

            The SF-86 really has no bearing. I was told to bring mine to the panel so they hadn't seen it prior.

                Not an authority on USSS here either, but my guess is that the SCI access is granted primarily since an agent on a presidential/ vice-presidential detail will likely come into contact with SCI material quite often simply given their constant proximity to the protectee.

                • Forgive my ignorance but what's the difference between the security interview and the poly exam?

                    Security interview is a review of your SF86 and perhaps more digging into your life via oral interview.

                      They use the PSI to dig around your past to see if you have any DQing issues prior to moving you on to the polygraph...where they validate it.

                      • Hey guys, does anyone know the average starting age of Special Agents? Is it common for SAs to start in their early to mid-30s? Also, are there a fair amount of former UD in SA?

                          I was told there is a sort of unwritten policy that SA's are almost always at least 27 years old. It's a maturity thing, not necessarily job experience.

                          I don't know about what job areas they pull from. When I took my TEA, everyone else was either military or LEO. I was the only non-LEO and non-military. But I made it.

                              Not sure, but I hope it's soon! My process was completed this week. I was told that the local guys are meeting next week to discuss the budget, so who knows how things will play out.

                                It sounds like we are at the same stage of the process. I had my drug test two weeks ago today. So now it is that time to sit around and wait.
