A suitability determination by the Social Security Administration is necessary to determine whether an employee can be issued credentials in order to have access to Social Security disability data, records, and systems. Following the interview process, the recommended candidate will be contacted and asked to submit to an initial pre-screen Federal background investigation through the SSA Office of Human Resources (DCHR). If the pre-screen is favorable, a conditional job offer can be extended. After a new hire's start date, continued employment is still contingent upon full suitability clearance through the DCHR, which entails submitting to a detailed security questionnaire and a potential interview from a DCHR investigator that may include the need for a medical release from the individual during the investigative process. At any point during employment, a final determination by the SSA that the employee does not have a favorable suitability determination will lead to termination of employment.
