You may renew your clearance when you are within 30 days of expiration.

When you are within 30 days download the Center of Excellence-PSIP worksheet and complete the worksheet and send to me by email with supporting documents (you may scan and email supporting documents).
After, I receive your worksheet, I will forward it to the Personnel Security Investigation Center of Excellence (PSI-CoE). PSI-CoE will start and process your eQip Security application. PSI-CoE will send you a email with the requirements to complete your eQip application. You will receive this email within one to three days after I receive your worksheet. After you receive PSI-CoE email you will have five calendar days to complete your e-Qip application. If you do not complete your application within the five days your application will be terminated. Therefore, return the worksheet if you have the time to complete your application.
