How can I get a copy of my clearance investigation?
First you must determine who conducted your investigation. The Defense Security Service (DSS) and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) have conducted ninety percent of all clearance investigations over the past 35 years.
For OPM investigations mail or fax a request with your hand written signature to:
Include the following information in your request:
- Full current name - Any other names you may have used in the past - Date of Birth - Social Security Number - A brief description of the records you are seeking - Any other information that you believe may be useful in searching for records pertaining to you
Additionally, due to the transfer of the personnel security investigations function to OPM on February 20,2005, any requests for DSS investigations completed after February 20, 2005 should be mailed to the OPM. DSS only maintains those personnel security investigations completed by DSS prior to the February 20,2005, transfer.
