If you’re a federal employee who has had to take out one of these so-called Payday Loans – there’s some good news for you in a new report from the Government Accountability Office.

Federal workers’ personal financial health is reviewed by agencies in a number of different ways. This new report says if you’d had to take out one of these high interest loans, your financial profile – or even your security clearance – probably will NOT be compromised.

Alicia Cackley, director in GAO‘s Financial Markets and Community Investment team, joined the DorobekINSIDER to discuss the report’s findings.

Online Chat: Beth Killoran, deputy assistant secretary for Information Technology and chief information officer at HHS, on March 28.
