The answer is...it depends.

If you have a lot of skeletons in the closet it will take longer.

About 15 years ago my son went to work at General Dynamics and eventually needed a secret clearance as he was working on satellite imaging radars. He said it took about a month. They even had a retired naval officer interview us and lots of our neighbors and his school friends before it was all over. Really interesting experience.

What about an "Interim" Secret Clearance, is that any different ?
