Hello all. This is my first post on this forum and thank you for taking the time to read. I have a couple of questions. I have a Reenlistment code of 9k on my erb and have no idea what it means. Could someone tell me? For the 35P portion a top secret clearance is needed. I have a secret clearance already but am still in debt. Would that affect my obtaining a clearance if im showing progress with maintaining debt?

With the debt issue a couple things you need to consider.
I've processed over 1,000 security packets and this was my experience.
When you apply for a security clearance you need to answer all of the 40 questions at the back of the application. Normally you want to answer no on all of these question, if you can. So the more yes answers the less likely they are going to approve your clearance. So in your case if you have or had medical problems, criminal problems, foreign contacts these are all things that could affect their decision. When you submit your packet for TS be sure to include current credit report, debt payments and other financial statements that show you are improving your dept.
Additionally, when your packet is submitted it will go in front of a board and together a group of people at OPM with determine if you should be granted a TS or not. Recently the Army has been limiting the number of TS clearances but you never know until you try.
