What do the terms 'active', 'current' and 'expired' mean?

People either have a clearance or they do not have a clearance.

The Personnel Security Investigation (PSI) on which the clearance is based can be either current or expired. PSIs are current if they are not more than five years old for a Top Secret clearance, 10 years old for a Secret clearance, or 15 years old for a Confidential clearance.

Generally, if the PSI is out-of-date (expired) or there has been a break-in-service of two years or more, a person must be nominated for a new clearance and must complete a new application in the same manner as a person who never had a clearance.
