PTSD Security Clearance Recert SF85-PS

Rate this question



Hello, I am currently rated for 70% PTSD within the last couple of months.  I am due for Public Trust re evaluation for my current position with CBP. I have been with the agency 10 years. Prior recerts and initial were done on the SF86 now I have a SF85P and SF85S. This changes the mental health question. I did not have to report treatment for combat related PTSD. Now with the SF85P and S it only says answer No for grief or family counseling? Do I have do disclose my PTSD treatment for a recert of public trust? Also how does this effect my recert? should I be worried?


The main issue with this form compared to the SF86 question 21 which was changed now I am required to use the SF85PS which is still a form from 1995. I will have to disclose it. Does anyone have any experience or information?

In my opinion, it is better to disclose and see what happens. It's an official government form, so you do not want to provide a false answer. We have no idea why this was added or how it would be used. It could be as simple as gathering metrics about CBP employees, but I honestly don't know if it would impact you negatively.
