Hi all.

I have a newish job, I have baseline security however I am waiting for my SC to come through, its so far taken 3.5 months and still nothing, and this will impact my position. I have emailed they just say its being processed and no further information is required. I also had to fill in extra paperwork regarding financial stuff. I am starting to get nervy about whether I will get granted it and wondered if there is anyone that has been refused on the basis of an IVA?

I believe some forum members have successfully passed SC whilst in an IVA. Hopefully someone with direct experience will reply.

Hi. My job requires regular vetting (or security clearance if you like). One of the conditions of my employment is that I must provide details of any changes to my personal circumstances which includes financial. I too was extremely worried as it could have ended my career. However when I entered my IVA I came clean and informed my vetting officer. It was not a problem and I was informed it is way more common than you might think. The problem lies with hiding it or lying as this in itself makes you a security risk.

So whilst I know it would be stupid to advise you not to worry. I hope and think you'll probably be ok.
