There is no such animal as an "inactive" security clearance. You either have a current, valid security clearance (i.e., "active"), or you do not have a clearance at all.
I have a a secret clearance like all the active guys and I’m a reserve. Its all the same.
When you leave Active Duty, your clearance goes into inactive status. You should have signed some paperwork with your security manager when you out-processed.
You no longer have access or a Need to Know.
Unless your clearance has expired, it only takes a minimum of effort for an employer to reactivate your clearance if you are hired and now need clearance.
JPAS, the DOD database that contains records of security clearances, only indicates the level of clearance that you have. So you either have a clearance or you do not. However, each record has an investigative summary and an adjudicative summary that list your past investigations and the clearances (aka: eligibility for access). A clearance can be reinstated if the investigation is not out-of-date AND you have not had a break-in-service of more than 24 months. Some people refer to this condition of having a "reinstateable" clearance as an "inactive" or "current" clearance, but it’s not the terminology used in any security clearance database. Some people use the term "expired" to describe a clearance that is no longer reinstateable because one of the two time limits has been exceeded. In actuality clearances do not expire, but the underlying investigation can go out-of-date.
