Credit is most likely only checked at hiring. However, jobs that handle a lot of money, have security clearances, or process customer's credit cards and personal information might do scheduled checks to make sure employees are still eligible.

I suspect that it is very possible that when employees must be bonded that the bonding company will keep information updated.

I work for a software company whose clients are mainly investment banks and hedge funds. One of the clients, a government agency, came forward with a requirement that they run our credit. I thought this was odd as the credit check was being mandated by a client, and not my employer. I have access to trading systems, so I could trade in production on their systems, but why force a company wide credit check at the behest of one client? As far as I know, they are not our biggest client nor are they at-risk.

Companies, and government agencies, can set criteria for doing business with those they partner with, and if their business is valued, their requests will be met. Not knowing the circumstances, it's difficult to speculate why they feel the need to do this, but there must be some reason.
