Your questions is very confusing.

If you change agencies, then a new ID will need to be issued.

My head hurts...

Let me see if this helps:

1. Five years ago, you received had a Public Trust finalized.
2. You moved to a new job and they accepted it.
3. You want to leave for another job.

Now you want to know if they will accept it again.

Depends...different agency, different policy, different rules.

ID card/badge is irrelevant. Those will need to be re-issued by the gaining organization.
That's all I got to say about that.

If it's now a couple months past the 5 years, can the same Public Trsut background check be applied towards another new position (if a better job opportunity came your way). I think Public Trust expire after 5 years, but in this case it was renewed before the expiration date so I don't know if it's still good for another 5 years elsewhere?

The real question is, why would you care. You passed the first time. Then you had that accepted instead of having to do another one. Since then, one would hope you have paid your taxes and most of your bills on time, not picked up a narcotics habit, not comitted any felonies nor fraternized with agents of foreign governments. Additionally, the last sf85p that entered into e-qip should populate the form when you repeat the process. (My replies to my sf85, 10 years ago, were there when I recently did a SF85P) As such, you just have to update the things that have changed, delete the things that are past the 7 years requested, and your good to go.

And this is why I quote the person I am responding to. The "post a question, then delete it when people respond" is annoying, especially when there is no acknowledgement of getting the question(s) answered!

The post was deleted because you wrote that it was confusing so I didn't want a confusing post. Or I think negatives replies sometimes prevent replies.

I was about to clarify it, but thanks to another poster I didn't need to do so. However, I would have preferred to edit my question or not have the confusing question duplicated. It's convenient to have the chance to edit.
