The National Benefits Center: What It Is and What It Does

We have noticed that there is some confusion out there about what our National Benefits Center (NBC) is and what it does.  The NBC serves a unique role within our organization as part of the Field Operations Directorate. The NBC was founded in 2001 in Lee’s Summit, Missouri and was originally called the Missouri Service Center (which is why receipt notices from the NBC will begin with the letters “MSC”).   

The NBC’s primary mission is to prepare applications for adjudication that require an interview at a USCIS Field Office.  A lot goes into preparing an application including conducting background and security checks and reviewing the evidence an applicant submits to support their eligibility for the benefit.

The NBC’s largest workload is Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, and Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.  These two applications will reach well over a million cases in Fiscal Year 2012. 

In the Form I-485 process, an applicant must provide all initial evidence, before the applicant can be scheduled for interview.  If evidence is missing, the NBC will issue a Request for Evidence (RFE).  An RFE places a hold on the I-485 application, as well as the associated applications filed with the I-485 application (for example, Form I-130, Form I-765, Form I-131), until the NBC receives the missing initial evidence. 

Missing evidence will not delay the processing of an N-400 application at the NBC. However, if the missing evidence is not provided at the time of interview in the Field Office, the adjudication of the application may be delayed or the application may be denied. 

Processing times of the Form I-485 and Form N-400 applications are determined by each Field Office, not the NBC, since final adjudication is not conducted at the NBC.  Please check our website at www.uscis.gov for the processing times of these applications at your local USCIS Field Office. 

If you need to contact the NBC regarding your case, please call our National Customer Service Center (NCSC) at 1-800-375-5283.  The representative taking your call will send an electronic message to the NBC that will be answered within 15 days.  Expedite requests, for certain applications, are answered within 5 days.

A general question about improving the secondary processing for people entering the country using Advance Parole:

I have been through this process four times(via Houston, TX - IAH) in the last 5 years and almost every time the secondary processing took around two hours. This is really tiring, particularly after travelling for more than 20 hours, waiting in the secondary processing area for almost another two hours with little kids is painful. Would appreciate any steps taken to speed up this process.

Thanks

my wife came here on a k-1 visa. I have all the forms ready to be sent in for adjustment of status. Do I need to file a 130 form with it. I am confused on this, I hear some people say you don't need it, and others say you do. Can somebody help me with this.
Also is there a place where you can get personal help filing the forms with no cost.

If you were the petitioner for your wife's fiancee petition (I-129F), you don't need to file the I-130. You can check the following link for legal assistance at little to no cost:

I moved and changed my address after my file sent to San Antonio FO. Now, I am in Dallas area. Do they call me for interview in San Antonio, TX or Dallas, TX area? If I know in advance I would prepare for my plan. Does this delay my processing time?

N-400 processing at Atlanta District Office was quite fast in the early part of the year but seems to have slowed down to a halt starting in June. Please kindly update processing time for ATL and I would also appreciate some explanation why it is so slow if that is possible.

kind regards,

Hello! I received I-485 RFE from the Nebraska Service Center and asked me to send evidence back with "the enclosed envelope", which is missing from the letter. Can you let me know the return address? Thanks!

I sent in an application for 1 130 but didn't send in anything with it because when I called I was told to send the $420 fee and app only . I received a receipt number 2 1/2 weeks ago and my case status still says it cant be found at this time . I called and was told to email them .I did 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything yet and I called again and they told me they cold find the receipt # but nothing else so I emailed again and nothing . Does this mean it is denied before they send me a request for more information and do I lose the 450.00 I sent ? thanks

I too can't seem to be able to find my case through USCIS, my concern is I need an expedite but so far I'm in the dark. USCIS is very shady about this. Why can't even the USCIS see our case status? I too am waiting for an rfe because I did the same and only sent the form and payment. I received my 797 receipt on October 1st. Here its December and still no leads on my case

For those who cannot find their status on the USCIS Website: You are not alone.

I also filed an I-130 and after receiving the NOA1 or I-797C, was unable to locate file status. However, I did call and when the Tech Difficulty Customer Service Officer also could not find it, I was transfered to somebody who was able to (and no, I am not sure which office as he didn't say).

At any rate, I did speak to an officer who validated our Case Receipt ID. He also let me know as of late Oct 2012 to present (today is Dec 10, 12), that they were having USCIS System problems. He didn't mention when it would be corrected.

So, if you have the I-797C document hardcopy, then they have received your file, even if you cannot see it's USCIS status online. Now all you have to do is wait for the NOA2 unless of course they need more documents from you.

I should let you know there was a very long LONG hold before I spoke to anyone.

Best to all and Happy Holidays.

hello, I filed for my husband on September 2012 and we got the file ref number starting with WAC but after we received another notice mentioned that our application was transferred to NBC. And now on USCIS case status says ""case was transferred and is now being processed at a USCIS office"" according to my research I think NBC itself takes less time to approve i130 petition..

I filed I-485 for my mother at the end of Septermber 2012. Application was received on October 1st,2012 and the receipt notice stated that the case was transferred to NBC. My mother had her fingerprinting/biometrics done about one month later but since then there were no more progress on the case. For sbout seven months till now, the case status on the USCIS website is still showing "acceptance". I tried to call the 1-800 number listed on the website a few times to check the status but the agents who recevied the calls didn't not seem to be able to provide me any further information. A few expediting requests were put in for me but so far no response back at all. Does this mean something might have gone wrong with my case? What other options do I have in order to find out what's really going on? I live in San Jose California and the typical processing time for this type of case is 4 month. I also thought about scheduling an appointment with the local immigrant office but INFOPASS told me no such information appointment available for the office in my area. I'm feeling totally in the dark and kind of desperate right now. Appreciate any insights!

Does anyone from USCIS check this blog?

There is a USCIS website with the heading "USCIS Processing Time Information for our National Benefits Center". As several others have pointed out, this table does not include a processing time for an I-130. However, several of us who've filed an I-130 have received an NOA indicating that it's being process at MSC National Benefits Center.

Why does the NBC Table with Processing Time Info not include a time for I-130? Is that info somewhere else on USCIS website?

I was informed by the NCSC (customer service) that the transfer time of an IR approved petition from National Benefits Center (USCIS-NBC) or Field Office (USCIS-FO) to National Visa Center is 90 days after approval, not like before it only takes 14 days....so sad.....

The NBC received my I485 case on Oct 4, 2012 (MSCxxxxxxxx29). Less than a month after, I did the Bio-metric.
After that (9 month!), anybody have been able to tell me the current NBC processing time. I've started 3 reclamation processes through the customer service at 1-800-375-5283, and nothing has been changed.
A couple of friends, that started their processes a month after me, have just received the Green Card.
This "standby" has my life partially stopped because I can't neither plan my vacation nor to open my Retirement Plan nor open my HSA. Besides my work permit is close to expire (Though I've just sent a renovation request).
I am totally lost and misinformed. Some help!, please.

No, I don't think anyone at USCIS checks this blog or any of these comments. I also applied/petitioned March 2013. I had same issues trying to find out whether my petition was being sent through VT or TX or CA, etc. as there was no easy explanation anywhere. Then I called (again - I keep calling), and was told that there are no posted processing times for the NBC. I found the same website as mentioned above (that had NBC processing times, but not for I-130). Just like everything else run by the government, the only information we'll be able to find out will be through people who have also suffered through this horrid experience. Has anyone spoken to anyone at USCIS customer service that DIDN'T sound like they were mentally challenged? I may just be getting connected through to the same person, but he seems to be no smarter than a voice recorded and set to simply repeat stats and messages from the USCIS website; he was not very helpful at all answering any REAL questions.

I filed for an I-130 and subsequently for a I-129F Fiancee(Spouse) Petition with the Dallas Texas Center. The paperwork was forwarded to NBC and did receive the receipts, but since then have not heard back from NBC. Upon contacting the Immigration Officer twice at the Customer Service Center, they were very apologetic and remorseful, that they were unable to provide any real-time communication or response from NBC, which they told me 15 to 30 days by mail, but nothing in the mail going 4+ months. Seems like NBC is overloaded with a backlog of multi-million cases and not enough staff workers to push it out the door. NBC declines to provide any realistic processing time, unlike other centers which is typically between 5-7 months out.

It is sad to know that the leadership element is missing with this NBC center!

I also filed a i130 in may2008. I was told by uscis to file the i130 and payment, that the uscis would request any documents needed. MISINFORMED. I was denied after 3month, due to lack of evidenciary documentation. I was told I could appeal the decision. MISINFORMED. After a year with the BIA , the appeal was dismissed, they don't accept new evidence and the CSC director was within the limits of the law to deny my case. Always follow what is in writing from USCIS. Call them and submit the documents BEFORE it is denied. I have been trying to get IR2 visa for my 5 year old son for FIVE years.....living in Mexico, while my husband lives in USA . God luck to all out there who are trying!

I wish I could express my dissatisfaction with USCIS. USCIS sent me a Green Card, I used the green card to join the military, apply for school including students loans etc. During boot camp, I lost the card. When I applied for naturalization based on my military service, I was told that the green card was fraudulent, that I lied, etc. My application was denied. I appealed the denial but now its been almost 3 months no interview. Seriously, USCIS is hurting people. I'm almost running crazy, no paper, my drivers license is about to expire and I wont be able to renew because I have no green card.

That has been going on since August 15 2012. They realized the other service centers were badly backlogged and decided to route some petitions there. It is also a service center, just that it does not traditional process I-130 petitions ...at least not until august 2012.
Your receipt # will start with MSC ( Missouri Service center) and the length of time it will take to process your case is unpredictable. Could be fast (like ours), average or slow.

best wishes.

I am just a green card holder trying to file I-130 for my husband who is outside America. I came to America in 2012 and got married in my country just last year(2013). I have already gone through the list of documents needed. First of all, I want to be sure if I need to provide just photocopies or the original copies of my marriage and birth certificates. Secondly, I would also like to find out if there will be an interview for me to show some wedding pictures and answer some questions face-to-face before I get approved. Lastly I would like to find out approximately how long it will take for the process to be finalized and what to do next.

I filed a I-601 Waiver for Grounds of Inadmissibility, I sent it to the Chicago Lockbox, however they forward it to the National Benefit Center (NBC). My receipt number starts with MSC. I am in the United States and entered the county "legally" Tourist Visa. I was found illegible do to a crime of moral turpitude in the past (9 yrs ago). my I-130 has been approved but the I-485 (married to USC) is still pending. I sent a complete brief explaining and proving the Extreme hardship my spouse will suffer if i was removed about 7 months ago and I still have not heard from USCIS, no update when I call they don't even know what to tell me or they contradict them self (makes me think) they don't know where and or how my case is been handle. PLEASE any advice or any comments will help. thanks in advance.

I worked for the US Army as a Local National Linguist (LNL) for more than 4 years and eventually I granted Special Immigration Visa(SIV). Why would I have to wait another 5 years in the US in order to get my citizenship? I spent 4 years from my life serving the US troops abroad, and live in the military base with them. I faced assassination by the terrorist groups twice and been shot twice in my back as a result of me working for the US Armed Forces. Now and after I waited for 5 full years, I'm applying for citizenship. It will be useful if I applied 4 years ago "if my serving time was counted" . Anyway, is there is anyway to accelerate the processing time because my background for the last 10 years is obvious?

On May 3, 2013 I filed I-130 petition for wife of US citizen. Receipt was issued by the Nat'l Benft. Center, (NBC) Mo. Processing times 6 months. Six (6) months later, on Dec. 6, 2013 NBC transferred to Lincoln, Nebraska. Six (6) months later on May 13, 2014 Lincoln, Nebraska transferred back to NBC, Mo. because NBC has jurisdiction of the I-130. ?????
Does thid make sence USCIS? What is going on? The processing times are still 5-6 months but the I-130 is going back and forth instead of being sent to the Field office for interview and adjudication. This makes NO sense. Why these transfers?

I am just a green card holder trying to file I-130 for my husband who is outside America. I came to America in 2012 and got married in my country just last year(2013). I have already gone through the list of documents needed. First of all, I want to be sure if I need to provide just photocopies or the original copies of my marriage and birth certificates. Secondly, I would also like to find out if there will be an interview for me to show some wedding pictures and answer some questions face-to-face before I get approved. Lastly I would like to find out approximately how long it will take for the process to be finalized and what to do next.

I also filed an I-130 and after receiving the NOA1 or I-797C, was unable to locate file status. However, I did call and when the Tech Difficulty Customer Service Officer also could not find it, I was transfered to somebody who was able to (and no, I am not sure which office as he didn't say).

At any rate, I did speak to an officer who validated our Case Receipt ID. He also let me know as of late Oct 2012 to present (today is Dec 10, 12), that they were having USCIS System problems. He didn't mention when it would be corrected.

Hi. I filed N400 in March 2014and I am in the military and my enlistment will be up in about 90 days. Was placed in line for interview on May 9,2014. My file was sent to FO and they placed me back in background check. I am really confuse about this as I cannot re-enlist without citizenship. Any advise please?

USCIS received my I-130 and I-485 application form on February 2014. On May 13, 2014, I have had an interview with them and received any denied form. Why almost 3 months after being interviewed I still not received my green card, while checking the NBC time frame its only takes 5 months to process the I-130 application form. Can someone please explain what is going wrong with USCIS?

Hello, I have received an RFE on my GC process but I need to travel outside US for some medical emergencies. I do have my EAD/AP with me. Is it safe to travel in such cases? What happens if , for some reason, my case is rejected? Can I still enter back for winding up?

I found the same website as mentioned above (that had NBC processing times, but not for I-130). Just like everything else run by the government, the only information we'll be able to find out will be through people who have also suffered through this horrid experience.

anyone sand I-601 waiver? I don't see any change.
Why does the NBC Table with Processing Time Info not include a time for I- 601.
