Effective February 11, 2016 we have updated the messages presented in the ‘Print Status’ and ‘Eligibility Status’ fields within PETS to better communicate the status of individuals on your rosters. We expect these changes to further assist you to understand the status of your applicants and employees.
Before an individual is added to your PETS roster, you must verify the individual’s Social Security Number is the same as the number printed on their Social Security Administration-issued Social Security card. Individuals without a valid Social Security number should never be entered into PETS with any other number issued by any other entity, as this constitutes fraud. Failure to abide by this requirement will result in the individual losing their security clearance, as well as require the individual to be fingerprinted a second time at their own expense.
