In another question I asked about the SF 86, and I was told it is required for all clearance levels, but I never did one for my Secret Clearance, meaning someone else probably did it for me. So my question is where can I find that old SF 86 so I can use it to expedite getting the next level (TS)?

The SF86 isn't required, it's a form used to gather the data needed for your clearance. Before EQip, it's what was used. Once you have all the data, your S2 sends you an email that let's you access EQip to input all the information from the SF86. You only get 5 days, which is why it has to be filled out prior to your EQip being opened.
Your old SF86 is stored on there, so your S2 should be able to pull it. But you also shouldn't need it because you should only need to go back as far as your last investigation. The information you provide for a Secret and a TS is exactly the same.

Awesome. Will the old one be the full 127 page SF 86, or is it another version of the form thats more concise? And do you know what will be asked once I login to e-Qip?

The 86 is still required for an investigation, but now E-qip creates the 86 after you answer the questions. Like Turbo tax creates your 1040.

SGT (Join to see) I dont know if the info from your old 86 will be on E-qips. My first re-investigation did not have the info in e-qips. I think it's because recruiters process the paperwork differently than we do. You need to ensure you have all the required info before you open your e-qips.

I feel like it will take more time to get a copy of it than it would to just reenter the information.
