    Default How serious is the Standard Form 85P???

    How serious is this form. Will credit issues stop me from getting hired as a contractor? Do they evaluate contractors as hard as they do Federal employees? My wife was ill for a while and things got bad. I have been hired but i am a bit nervous. Any input?

    When I was hired by the Fort Riley Fire Department, I had to fill out a SF-85P. It wasnít all too bad, I have really crappy credit and I was ok. Just as long as you are 100% truthful and you donít lie you should be fine. Just remember to fill it out completely 100% and donít lie or leave anything out you should be ok. But that was my experience with the SF-85P, so just use what I say as a reference, not as facts.
