- Reaction score
If it makes you feel better my last submission took 3 attempts; 1st was missing some info (my fault), and the second one they rejected something because my email included an apostrophe and got flagged as an illegal character or something (constant problem after email rules got updated to form fields with rejection criteria that weren't updated). I think in total took 2-3 years to get a submission in the system, and another year to clear for a level 2 renewal.I had that situation happen to me recently, submitted the paperwork civilian side after the military side. Got it fairly quickly civilian side. Found out months later that my orderly room had never submitted my paperwork and had to start the process over again.
So I did an entire deployment with my clearance 'under review' or whatever the status is. Makes sense to me though; there was no gap in my record, and unless I lost my security clearance for some reason, should be pretty routine. I doubt they checked much more than my credit score and employment record when they finally got to my file, just took years to get to it.
