What are some of the differences between MBI vs LBI clearances? Is MBI is greater than LBI or otherway?
 
What does come after LBI clearance? What jobs can you apply with LBI clearance and how long it is valid?

Neither MBI nor LBI are clearances. Both are types of background investigations (minimum background investigation and limited background investigation).

The biggest difference between them is that the LBI involves direct interviews with the folks in your background. It is considered to be more involved than the MBI.

The LBI is no longer offered. The MBI since 1 October 2010 is a totally different beast that the MBI before 1 October 2010. Both are used for Public Trust investigations - meaning - no national security clearance.



*DISCLAIMER*Correctly filling out your security forms will not guarantee you a clearance in 3 months BUT be sloppy and your case will be in the field a heck of a lot longer, guaranteed.
