Below is a video by a respected Security Clearance Legal Advisor Annie Stellato that plainly explains what Loss of Jurisdiction means, and how it works.
Annie Stellato has held various positions supporting national security over the last 14 years. She has an extensive background in security policy, regulations and processes as they apply to collateral security clearances, Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) access, and Special Access Programs (SAP) for both Government entities and Cleared Defense Contractors.
Technically, per the Defense Security Service, a Loss of Jurisdiction means:
“When an individual has an eligibility of Loss of Jurisdiction, there is no eligibility, i.e. the individual should be debriefed and no access provided until an eligibility that supports access is entered by a CAF.
