Denial of Federal Benefits (DFB) Program

Information for Individuals

If you have been convicted of a drug offense and would like to know if your federal benefits have been denied, you must review your sentencing documents and contact your attorney with any questions you may have.

Important Note: The clearinghouse does not determine who is placed on the Debarment List nor does it have any control over the length of the debarment period. The Clearinghouse simply records debarment actions, based on information provided by the sentencing courts. Modifications to the debarment period can only be made upon a written order from the sentencing court.
