These Processing Times issued by USCIS gives you an estimate of how long it will take the National Benefits Center to process a class of petitions or applications. USCIS generally processes cases as they are received (“first in, first out”).
How to use the Processing Time Report:
- Check your receipt notice (I-797C, Notice of Action) and make sure that the receipt number begins with “MSC”.
- Look for the Form number or Purpose for your petition or application.
- Look for the specific Sub-type for your petition or application, if applicable.
- Check the column titled “Now Processing Cases with Receipt Notice Date of”. If you see a date, the Service Center is currently processing cases filed on or before that date. If you see “X” months, it means that the Service Center is processing cases within their internally-developed goal time frames.
If you find that your case is outside “normal” processing times, you can contact USCIS Customer Service.
NOTE: If you received a notice from USCIS informing you that the case has been transferred from the National Benefits Center to another Service Center or Local Field Office, check the processing times for the destination Service Center or Local Field Offices.
