Responding to Interrogatories

During the security clearance investigation process, an agency could send you written questions (aka “Interrogatories”) seeking additional information or documentation from you and/or may request that you verify certain information contained in your subject interview report with the investigator. It is important to provide clear and accurate responses to each question because your answer could play a significant role in your application process.
