A revoked clearance is a show stopper that has to be addressed before transfer. Not having a clearance for your mos or going beyond 5 years for a ts or 10 for a secret is also a show stopper. A person is transferable, however, if they do not yet have the required clearance that they are trying to "will train" into.

Thanks for the response. You said, "A person is transferable, however, if they do not yet have the required clearance that they are trying to "will train" into." Do you mean need required clearance for current MOS before transfer to new MOS?

Correct a person has to have the clearance for their current MOS even if their desire is to change jobs. Let me know the Soldier you are referring to and I will try to assist.

A revoked clearance is a show stopper regardless of the new mos. it is an HRC Security policy but I am confident it is driven by other policies.

SFC (Join to see) - HRC Security Policy; Interesting. It probably has something to do with an initiative from a couple of years ago: https://www.army.mil/article/137256/Soldiers_face_reclassification_or_separation_for_losing_MOS_qualification
I appreciate your help. I'll get with him and see what he want's to do and let you know.

SGT James Miller The best option for you friend is to have them sit down and talk to their local Career Counselor. That way they can be make sure they are given the most accurate information, when the counselor is able to look up all their information up in the system. If you want to send me a private message I can assist you with finding a local Career Counselor for your friend.

The Soldier can also call the HRC Security team to resolve any issues. But the clearance does need to be resolved before a transfer can take place.

Also, he talked to a Reserve Career Counselor and she mentioned the revoked clearance and it didn't matter if he wanted to RECLASS, but she didn't know why. She said her battalion would kick it back for some reason. She said to call Reserve Security Clearance hotline (it's at HRC at Fort Knox, KY). He called and the guy on phone only confirmed the clearance being revoked for a year or so now. My friend told him what he was trying to do, and he said it's because, if the Army want's him to go back to his first MOS, that would be a problem, so No Go. Now, I listened to both conversations with him via speakerphone.
To me, it doesn't make much sense to me since, at least with Active Duty: "Re-enlistment Prohibition code 9P (loss of MOS qualification), and be processed for mandatory reclassification." I couldn't find the reference easily, but reclass someone involuntarily (maybe; up to chain of command) but, no: voluntarily.

Generally, if you lose your clearance and your MOS requires it, you are not transferable to the USAR. If you want have him call me and I'll assist him. I am a Career Counselor.
