I currently work for an agency that has sponsored me for a security clearance. After a year, it is still "in process" (whatever that means). I'm not looking to leave any time soon but if I decide to, or need to (for reasons outside of my control), before my clearance is fully approved, what happens to it? I don't have an interim clearance or any idea how much longer I need to wait for the process to complete.
I looked at the responses for a similar question, but they refer to someone who already completed the process, not someone who is in the middle of it and doesn't have an interim clearance.
I'm in the US, going for a Secret level clearance.
