Q: Does FEDS Protection cover security clearance matters?
Security clearance matters, almost exclusively, are the result of actions or decisions made outside of employment. FEDS Protection provides defense and indemnification for acts, errors and omissions within your scope of employment. In the end, agencies almost always handle security clearance matters correctly and in favor of the employee, so legal representation is almost always unnecessary.
Some carriers will provide coverage for an additional premium, however, you need to read carefully how and when you are covered for these matters.
With that said, FEDS does provide 2 half-hour consultations with an attorney, which have been used for responding to security clearance inquiries.
If you are a policyholder having a security clearance issue, please call 866.955.FEDS to schedule a free consultation.
